Flown Away


My owl quilt has flown away off my design wall now and travelled to the quilter's. I hope it has a safe travel and comes back much improved. I have people in my life who are flying away, okay driving away for a while and I wish them safe travels too. I hope that they find all that they wish for, and come back improved too!

Teacher Appreciation

Sock Monkey Pencil Case

It is that time of year for teacher appreciation gifts. My children had outstanding teachers this year. We always like to give homemade gifts or books. I love seeing how much my children have developed and grown over the year. They gain so much confidence in what they have learned. I think that if I had to play Am I Smarter Than Them, I wouldn't be.  Some of my closest friends are teachers, and I appreciate how much dedication and effort they put into teaching students, even if they don't always get the recognitition.

Rainbow Bright!

Rainbow Bright

I have needed some brightness to my days as lately there has been a lot of gray so I am very happy to have finished this quilt. I thought that it might go to someone else, but my daughter claimed it as hers. She was not around when I finished it, so I got to take it for a test run before giving it to her. I am glad that it is staying in the family. I have a lot of quilts right now that need to have binding on them and then they are finished. Hopefully this is the start of a great deal of progress. My friend gave me a beautiful gift yesterday and it has inspired me to make a quilt. She is always an inspiration to me!
