Quilting Lately!!!

Hi Stitchers and Stampers,

I've been alittle busy quilting lately. Fell in love with it! Here is a couple that I've been working on.

The quilting is done by a friend of mine. She's a great gal and really good at it!!!

The first quilt is for my 3 grandsons to use at the lake. Very fitting!!





This quilt was made for our newest great niece! She's a doll!



Alas, I'll be selling off some rubber stamps on Ebay.  I have one lot of house mouse listed right now. My ebay name is klikes99.  They are around $11 each for the lot. Stay tuned for more. Hopefully getting some more listed this week.

Hugs and happy crafting!!!

WOW! Time slipped away from me! Truffula Trees and Quitling

Hi Stampers and Stichers,

I'm so sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been quilting, and rearranging, cleaning here and there, organizing, and playing with those cute little grandkids of ours.  I'm trying to dress up the grandkids room. Their room just isn't big enough! They are taking over the basement! The toys, not the grandkids. LOL  Here's a few photos of what I've been working on...

A couple of truffula trees ...I'm going to decorate their room with crafty things from the Lorax. Next on the agenda is a wooden Lorax guy and his lil friend the teddy bear. The truffula trees are held up with black thread and those 3M command strips


Next is the Dear Jane quilt I've been working on. My friends and I are making 4 blocks per week. It doesn't seem like a great task but some of these templates are crazy!! Don't forget the easy patterns on this website and the easy template gudie to block building here.


Besides Dear Jane, I'm in the middle of making some blocks of the month for a friend. I am in a group with some friends and we decided to create our own BOM again. It was so much fun this year. 

A couple of the ladies wanted the same block again this next year so they can make their quilt bigger. What an excellent idea!

Last year mine was the card trick in light blue and light green. I'll share a photo after it comes back from the quilter. Along with a Riley Blake "wheels" tumbler quilt that I whipped out with 2 - 5" charm packs. With this fancy ruler and this crazy, fun tutorial, it was super easy. That was an easy project!



You guessed it! This year it is one color, next year it's the opposite. Pretty nice! This is the

Next is a minion panel that I'm making for someone. I can't say who as they might read this!! The pattern is here.


Well that's it for today's blogging. I have to finish doing the laundry! Boooo!

Happy Crafting and Have a great week!!

ROW BY ROW EXPERIENCE IN QUILTING HAS BEGUN!!

Hi Stampers and Stitchers,

I am so sorry about not posting lately! Where does the time go?  Just kidding...I know where it went. LOL

I have been collecting free quilt patterns from participating quilt shops in the Row by Row Experience.  You won't believe how much fun this is!!  I'm having a blast. I've traveled all over Michigan and to parts of Indiana. I will travel the southern cities of Indiana in a week or so.

I won't be making a quilt right away. I'm busy with the RXR and watching grandbabies.

I did make a card or two and forgot to take a photo before stuffing them in their envelopes and sending them out to friends.  I did remember tonight.  I really like this stamp set and the color just pops, don't you think?

I will try not to stay away again so long. Time just flies by!!

Please ask me any questions you may have about this card.

The punch is discontinued and the word stamp is from another source.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Crafting!!

STAMPIN UP WETLANDS AND A FLOWERS CARD

Hi Stampers and Stitchers,

I was asked by my SIL to make some more cards for church. They send these out to folks who can't get into service due to bad weather, and well you know…those darn ailments! :)

The first card is for the men. I saw this on the web and asked if I could CASE it and she said yes!
I was elated!  The DSP is retired but if you click on this link we have lots more to chose from that are just as handsome.

The second card is for women and I think what is also fitting for couples.  Although I'd like to put lovey bluebirds on some cards. I'll test that out later. :D

I hope you enjoy these cards and your day!
