What a Week!

So, back to school tomorrow, and over all, I have so enjoyed my Easter vacation week! I'm doing a little auditioning for the borders. . .

And the math crunching calculations...yes, I got the pattern from the book, but I tend to make any project my own! This one will fit our queen bed.

We are dressing up the guest towels for the "company" bathroom. For twenty five years, we lived in homes with only one bathroom, it is wonderful to have another potty... er, powder room!

The pink flower is not attached, I just think Lydia's crochet talents are beautiful. . .

These are her latest pillowcase edges on her lovely sheets. . .

So, it'll be back to work, but it feels pretty good to have some things accomplished! We are waiting out the insurance on the car, it looks like they will fix it, but on their time.
Alrighty, then! As I said we need the car, (not a car payment).

On the giveaway front, here are a few to consider. . .
Go wish Robin of Robin Quilts, Etc. a happy birthday, and enter for 20 fat quarters, and her newest pattern.

Kate of The Quilting Professor, has a nice giveaway with 3 quilting books. She is a blogger that I didn't know about before today!

There is another new-to-me person, and she is a published author of (at least) two quilt books, and she is gonna give two of them away! Check out Gayle Bong's blog, and her new book,
"Twin Peaks" . It is getting great reviews. revised: we missed this one, but her blog and books look great, look on Amazon!

Hope you are enjoying your week!
Happy Quilting,


  1. The crocheted edges are beautiful. I love the vibrant last blue border on your quilt.

  2. Your quilt is going to be beautiful. Border fabric looks great!

    Hope you have a great week!


  3. You did get a lot done! Love the towels. Glad to hear your car is fixable!

  4. Vacations go by in a hurry - my daughter was off the week before Easter and the time flew by for her. Your quilt is lovely and both fabrics would make great borders. Maybe a small strip of one and larger of the other. Pretty blues! Carol

  5. I love the lace on the towels! Cute idea; I never come up with this stuff.

  6. The lace and edging are beautifully done!

  7. I was wondering about the car...well if they fix it you'll have a car if they totaled it you'd have "some money" towards another car. Sounds like you hate car payments as much as we do......I'm hoping my 1997 toyota last another 10 years :0).

    Love the blue quilt.....its going to be lovely and blue is my favorite calming.

    Sorry your break is over but looks like you had some fun at the machine :0).

    Happy Sewing

  8. I just love all the creativity flowing from your post today! Thank you for your kind words on my blog. I wanted to tell you that the designer who did my blog had her car stolen out of her driveway last week and she's been struggling with all that involves. I feel so bad for both of you! Take care!

  9. I love the potential borders you have laid out - that quilt is sooo pretty! Looks familiar -I forget the name of the book I've seen a lot lately around blogland ;)

    Maye next time I click around, you will have it done. ;)

    Love from Texas! ~bonnie
