I'm getting ready for a craft show and I like to have doll beds available for Christmas gifts. I just got this white doll bed and made a mattress, sheet, pillow with pillowcase and quilt for it.
This doll bunk bed was a great find and I made mattresses, sheets for it also. I cut up an antique quilt to make the quilts and pillows. I hope some little girl (or woman) likes this.

I finished the last of Gail Pan's "A Christmas Wish" BOM . I hope I'll get it put together before Christmas!
Here are 2 month's of BOMs from my local quilt shop. This is the pastel version.
And this is the bright version. Uh Oh! I goofed on the bottom one! Luckily, it's on the corner so it will be easier to un-sew. Time to get out the seam ripper.

I finished the quilt for my boss's first granddaughter, so I can take it to work tomorrow!!
I love the 30's fabric! Do you see the tiny pink umbrellas? That's my favorite.

Baby quilt and egg basket

It's been quite a while since I posted a blog. Thanks so much to all who commented on my last post, especially all your sweet remarks about our son returning from Iraq.

My boss will become a Grandfather soon, so I'm making a baby quilt out of some 3o's charm squares. I'll finish quilting and binding it this weekend so I can take it to work on Monday.
I bought this little wire basket at a garage sale and wasn't sure what it was used for. I found these ceramic eggs at an antique shop & thought they would look cute in the basket!

Thanks for visiting!

I decided I wanted a portable sewing machine to take with us when we travel after I retire. I looked at some of the newer machines, but wasn't that impressed. So I decided to get what I really wanted - a Singer Featherweight. I found lots of them for sale on Ebay and decided to go for it!



Isn't it cute? I love it! Below I am testing it out and it works great! This will be perfect for traveling. It has a neat little suitcase that it comes in.

The best news, though, is that DS#3 safely returned from Iraq! We are so thankful and will be going to see him, DIL and GS Jonah this weekend. Thanks for all your kind words of encouragement and prayers for him while he was in the middle east.
