Here's what I've been up to over the last few days...It seems, sometimes, that the only thing that I sew on is Farmer's Wife Sampler blocks.
But, just to prove that, once in a while, I have something else to show for my labor, here are three little wheel chair lap quilts that I recently finished.
The first two were made from blocks found in my "Spare Parts Drawer"....in other words, leftovers from other projects. The pastel quilt is a leader/ender project. Instead of adding traditional bindings, this time I folded over the backings and topstitched them down to the fronts. It made for a quick and easy finish to these small projects.
The quilts went with my son to Nepal last week to be donated to a hospital that he visits there. The sizes are sort of an experiment so I'm anxious to hear how well they were received. I'd like to make more to send the next time he visits.
Little Lois, who was born 7 weeks early last fall, is growing like a weed!
I had the privilege of getting to babysit her for the first time last week.
It was a special day for me and she even wore her pink flamingo outfit in my honor!
For the last, going on four years, my husband has been wanting to get another golden retriever. Our last one had to be put to sleep following some illnesses and I've been holding out. On Thursday, Mr. Lollyquiltz brought home this cutie:
Five month old Ginger.
The puppy was free to a good home because the owners were gone too much to give her the attention she needed. My husband is ecstatic. I'm working on it.
Our cat is in therapy.
These two sweeties spent the night with Lolly on Saturday night . My job was to deliver them to church on Sunday morning looking cute. So what's a crafty grandmother to do...
when she has several hand smocked dresses hanging in the closet that would fit the girls perfectly? She would take the opportunity, while it was available, and dress the girls in clothes that she had made for their mommy at their ages, of course!
And last, but not least, if you recognize this guy, he apparently is looking for you!
My hubby found him along the road while on his morning jog Saturday.
(I love the spelling, don't you.)
Whatsup with you?
