Finally a Post!

It has been a long time since I have posted and I feel bad, but I haven't gotten back into a routine since I got back from vacation. I started small and worked on these little pin cushions to try and get my groove back. I guess I have been just too darn lazy. I like how they turned out but they are alot smaller than I thought they would be. I love them cause I used up some more scraps. Yeah!

I have really been into the reds lately and when I saw the new Inkwell Reds, well I just had to have them. Don't you just love em!!


This next pix is a little sneak peek of a scrap quilt I have been working on between work and quilting a quilt for my "quilty friend". You know who you are. Hopefully I will get alot of it done this weekend! That is my goal! :D Anyway the scrap quilt below is mainly leftover half square triangles from the quilt I pieced on vacation, "Old-Time Treasures". I guess you could call it my "Fringe Benefit" quilt.


Last but not least is a pix of my son and my 2 grandaughters. My DIL took the pix, they were at Cincinatti, Ohio watching the Cubs play the Reds. They had a ball and as you can see they are all decked out in their Cubs shirts! Thanks so much Angie for getting this to me!


It is over the hump day and a holiday weekend is coming up. YIPPEE!!! Hope you all have a safe and fantabulous weekend!

I love your red fabrics. They are so pretty. The quilt you are working on is great. I have recently started doing the leader ender thing, so I have several potential blocks already.Kind of neat to get a quilt out of leftovers. (grin) Winona

I love the reds! I'm anxious to see more of the quilt! I am a "new" follower! I have a cornfield across the road from my house.
