Hello, Again!

It has been almost 4 months since last posting! I hope to connect with friends again. Summer passed,

 Papa working over his new toy, a featherweight I  sewed on during our visit back home in Nebraska ~

 "Eye of the Needle" natural rock formation, 
South Dakota.
Just one of the many fun places we visited ~


Larry loves the horses~

We enjoyed the break, 

school began,
Just a few of my 25 kiddos in our classroom library, first day of school photos ~

and then, I was not able to post anything because a widget took over the pokeydot blog! Naughty lil' widget!

Until I was able to get tech help, sharing was on hold. So, here are a few pictures of the creativity that continued even without posting. . . you know you don't quit making stuff when the sewing gene is in your DNA!


 can hardly wait to show this progress

 a baby quilt for Kathy

This Batik braid quilt was beautiful, and remained square! I was so impressed with Donna's piecing. I quilted it with a swirl pattern ~

 My sweet friend Nancy, and this lovely quilt she pieced, I quilted and bound it for her niece ~

These are two small table toppers, about 36". Same colors,  pieced by Donna, and I quilted with a beautiful variegated thread ~

Another of Kathy's that I was lucky to get to quilt. Can't remember the magazine she used, this was published this summer called "Rain Bows". The photo isn't true to color, it was stark white!

This sweet baby boy's quilt 
was for My bbf's grandbaby, 
Gavin. Beth did the embroidery, 
I pieced and quilted it. 
I can't find a finished photo!

This is Kathy, and her gift to her dd for her birthday in October. I quilted with stars,  the word "Boo" and a spiderweb here and there  

While in Nebraska, I was able to visit with fellow quilter and blogger, Elaine! Sorry that this wasn't put up before now Elaine, but I sure enjoyed our little visit. Go see her quilting skills here ~  

Hope to find other pictures and post them soon. Until then, good to be back!
