In progress

So what have i been working on (other than being a mom and keeping the household going during rehab upheaval?). LOL

Here’s a glimpse of the quilt top wallhanging for bathroom. I am next sewing bubbles in it here and there. J’s suggestion was to add in purple and she was right. I viewed her suggestion a bit skeptically since purple is her new obsession but i am glad i took it. L loves it.

Hearts all around

Freeform small art quilt as a thank you present for Wendy.  I made this earlier in the fall, but forgot to put it up on my blog, and since I haven’t done all that much this year, sad to say, I’m adding the photos I’ve forgotten along the way.  So there will be a flurry of blog activity, again, and perhaps a chance blogging will continue in some regular manner in the new year.  HA!  anyway…this was a learning experience, mostly recycled fabrics, some quilt fabrics, yellow daisy lace, tons of hand embroidery and beading, and I had a blast doing it.  It’s a tad wonky as you will see in the finished picture, but perhaps it adds to its charm.  in any event, I think I know how to fix that on the next quilt.

The next quilt is cut and on the design board, for the girls’ bathroom, in teals and hot pinks with some greens.  I will start sewing the strips this week.
