Good evening; I hope that all my dear friends had a wonderful day. I spent most of the day watching TV, the Inauguration, it was quit something to see. And then my Son called and Mom had to go and give him a hand with the kids cos he was not feeling well, and then had to go to the store for him, chicken soup and other Mommy feel good goodies... lol Poor baby, I felt so bad for him, but I am sure he will be feeling better tomorrow. I hope.
Then I made it home to get my fabric's out for my two quilting projects. I have some time in between Swaps to get some sewing done. The first one is a lap quilt, now the colors are not what I would usually pick, but some how they just jumped out at me and said pick me!!! So I did.
Now you can't tell but the green is a dark lime green, I just love all the colors and how they flow together.
The fabric on the far left it the backing, it is not going to be anything fancy for the pattern, just different width of strips. So it will be not take a while to finish it which is good. But the quilting of all three layers will take a bit, I like to quilt by hand, just could not get the handle on machine quilting. Now the next quilt I will do after this one is going to be a lot of cutting with scissors.
You might have to click on the photo to see it better, I love love love this one. I have the prefect blues and red of this. It has just a touch of red on the bird's wings and two different blues. It is all fusible iron on and then a blanket stitch around all the pieces, then I have to trace the embroidery lines and stitch them in a blue embroidery thread.
The blue rose fabric is a wonderful Toile I found at Joann's which is the main pattern and the other blue with some gold is just going to be a bit of it, and the red is just for the wings. I just love this book, so many wonderful patterns in it. This will be my second one of this book, the first one was called Just My Doodles, I did it in reds and greens, I use it for Christmas. I will be taking some photos as I go along to do future posts. So tomorrow I am going to start on the first one I can't wait.
Well today was a great day out side for a change, the Sun was out all day no snow but still cold still in the teens but nothing like the past few weeks. And I have notice that the days are getting longer, usually by five it is dark now it is light. Yea!!!!!!! I feel Spring in the air.... Ok maybe not yet, but I can dream. Right Ladies.... lol Well that is it for now, I hope you have enjoyed my ramble. Idol is on now and I have to pay attention so I don't miss all the fun.....
I want to thank you all for the comments and taking the time to visit my humble blog to read bits and piece's of my Daily life. Have a great week every one... God Bless;
