    I made this yesterday for my grand daughter, and I bought fabric today to make one for one of my grandsons. I plan to make one each pay day until I have 8 of them for Christmas for all of my grandkids. Pillow beds for nap time or TV time.


    The other thing on my table... I'm cutting 7 inch charms from tons of fabric scraps to make an I SPY quilt for one of my grandsons. It's his turn to get one, four grandkids got them for Christmas, and two had their already. He wants one so badly.

    all are beautiful. Love that pillow idea. I just finished this Raggedy Ann for my GD for Christmas. She always wants to take mine home with her when she is here so I made her one. I am making three dresses. Here are two of them

    Love the Raggedy Ann...My grandmother made my cousin and me the Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls for Christmas many, many years ago...about 1950 or 51, I think. I have her vintage patterns still along with the pattern for the Camel with the Wrinkled Knees. Unfortunately, all my dolls met their demise at the hands of Mother Nature, so I no longer have any of mine left except a couple of the old miniature Madame Alexander's. Maybe I'll dig out the old pattern and make me another pair someday! or maybe not!
    Thanks for the memories...hugs

    I'm working on a traditional Hawaiian quilt for my son and soon-to-be daughter in law. They are getting married in Hawaii, and are the type of couple that already have 'everything' so I am going to give them something unique. I took a class through Quilt University to learn about this, and so far I have finished sewing the huge applique and am now doing the border. All has been by hand. Their wedding is next May, and I hope to goodness I started it soon enough to get it done in time. Name:  100_2240.jpg

    Double Irish Chain

    I am making this for a friend and we decided to add some applique to each of the "solid" blocks. So found a pattern last night and will begin that today.

    My Babylock Jane sewing machine is on my sewing table and probably a cat or two. The quilt I have borders ready to sew on is on the dining table. I share my sewing room with four cats. They consider my stuff community property. There are lots of pretty things posted on this thread.

    Okay, 1st is the WIP sewing on the binding of my Bargello wall hanging - after that tabs, hang, and done! Next is the precut stuff in the basket for my son's quilt. Yes that is MY drill driver and DH better not touch it! (hiding it as soon as I finish this post. Last is my work wall with son's WIP quilt that I need to finish by August 8th when he gets back from visiting his dad in Oregon. Oh and that is part of my FQ stash. Was going through and picking 5 for the August swap.

    Nope, my sewing space used to be the family room adjacent to the kitchen. DH converted our garage (mind you garages in Alabama are HUGE and could fit 3 cars, tools, and laundry/misc storage) into an apartment for his mother. When he built her shower, we had to move the washer and dryer upstairs into the family room. We also have a dining room we never use so we converted it into our office. Formal living room is now family room. After all, we simply are not that formal! I never saw the use in a room that never gets used . DH also built me a workshop outside, complete with heat and AC, but guess what? It's so crammed with his misc tools and crap that my work benches are swallowed up! Well, he does need to keep his tools out of the rain and since the metal shed leaks, his table saw, compressor, misc other saws and tools need a place to live. Sure I clean it up once in a while. He is so grateful that he can now cram more crap in there. One day I will get some use out of my never-used band saw!

    Do share what your other hobbies are, or at least point me in the direction for the correct thread

    Grandmother's Flower Garden, tummy time baby blanket for Miss Scarlett that is getting too old for this ! I plan on keeping it at my house, for when she visits..

    A favorite pattern, labor intensive but so fun to find each fun fabric print flower among the garden.

    Please, used advanced post and share what you are working on .

    Love to see the differant projects inprogress.

    I love this. Stashed away in a drawer is one of my labor intensive projects, my Cathedral Windows. SO far it is about pillow size. Hand sewing the panes in, but machine sew each folded "pane." It takes oodles of muslin to make one of these, but no quilting

    1st pic is of GFG that I started last April when I was still driving my 18 wheeler. It was what I worked on when I was being loaded & unloaded & now it's my TV time project. I've got 14 more flowers to go out of 110 til finished. 2nd pic is titled "These colors have no fear". It'll be a wallhanging & a show quilt with HEAVY quilting on it. GFG is all done by hand, Eagle's flying geese is 3-D.

    I'm doing flying geese. Still have about 200 to go. No, I don't use any tools or special ways of cutting, just do it the
    old fashioned way. There will be 2 rows of them framing a log cabin quilt I've made for our bed. My DH is so excited to finally have a quilt for us!!!

    an UFO xmas quilt from 1995 which I just finished quilting and I am now binding (photo to follow) a pink scraps quilt, Dutch tile blocks, and DJ patterns to be done next. Variety is my motto!
