I CAME UP FOR AIR;;;;;

Autumn leaves

Good afternoon dear friends; I thought I would come up for a bit of air and say hello to you all….. :)  It is taking me a lot longer then I thought.. but Little Lucy’s Quilt is coming along…   OK I have to whine a bit, if you don’t mind,,, I can’t hand quilt as long as I used too, with my Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, and Carpertunnel in my hands, I can only do so much a day and night….. if I was a horse they would have shot me along time ago…  OK I am done having a complaining party…. lol;   I hope I get it done before she has the baby, she has been having some Braxton Hick’s Contractions, so it won’t be too long….  I will give you a sneak peek of the quilt,, just a small one,, ,I have been taking photos of the progress of it so I can show you all from start to finish..  Tomorrow I am off to the Fabric store to start my next Baby Quilt…. it is called  Nite-Time Baby Bear…. it is the sweetest quilt with baby bears on it.. I can’t wait to find the perfect fabric’s for it… 

Ok not the sneak peek…

Blowing Rock 001    Since I don’t have a craft room as of yet, this is my make do for my sewing, it works really well… here I am sewing my squares together….

I found this beautiful ribbon to go with the Quilt, don’t you just love the colors, and I bought pastel buttons for it too, they are Pink, Yellow, Blue. Green… 

So that is the peek,, did you like it????????   I also have a photo of the next one I will be working on, it won’t take as long as Lucy’s,,,   I hope….. he he…

I have really missed you all..     I thank you all so very much for stopping by for a visit, and taking the time to leave me a kind comment,,, you all are just Great!!!

Until next time;    God Bless;

Hi, Alaura,
Your Little Lucy's Quilt is coming along nicely. The ribbon you chose to go with it is so pretty, very feminine. I look forward to seeing it when you are completed with it. The next quilt looks very sweet too with the teddy bears on it. Blessings to you! Vicki

Hello~ Looks like every stitch is coming along splendidly! I'm so envious of your talent. I've always wished I could sew. I can't imagine being able to create the quilts you do. I look forward to seeing them both when you've got them finished.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

Hi Aluara! Your little quilt is so sweet and the ribbon is darling! Now I know who you're doing the little bear quilt for! :) wink wink! It's going to be precious. Don't do too much, though, to hurt your hands!
I love you!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
