I forgot

I forgot this little lap quilt I made my 90 y/o grandmother for her bday. Now she wants matching pillows too.......

Some finishes

It's been almost a month since I posted last- such a bad blogger I know :( But I can honestly say it's because I've been busy actually sewing and quilting.

I didn't think I'd have so many quilts finished with hubby out of work still- scrimping and saving for backing fabrics and batting but much to my sheer amazement- the batting fairy visited me last week. I kid you not- a 40 yard roll of warm and natural was delivered to my house- no names on the paperwork except mine- THANK YOU BATTING FAIRY

My friend Maureen is starting chemo today. I made her a quilt to take with her. Poor thing broke her hip jumping down off the PET Scan table last week. If you could all keep her in your prayers. Finish #12

I had a request from a little friend for a quilt. Seems I made one for her brother when he was born but I didn't know the family when she was born. Tinkerbell fabric has been sitting here since I worked at Joann's many moons ago - but I can happily say it's all gone now :) Finish #11

and I finished both wall hangings- I hand quilted mine in baptist fans and machine quilted one for my aunt. She liked the design so much when I was making them. Things you do when we lost cabe/internet and landline phones during the last Noreaster.

finish 9 and 10
On a sad note- we had to put down DD's cat , Cyd Vicious down yesterday. She was 16 y/o and we had her for just over 11 of them. She developed a huge tumor that she would lick till it bleed and I didn't want her to be out somewhere and it burst and we'd never know what happened. The vet set she had tumors throughout her insides too. RIP my friend- we will miss you.
