Busy in my little sewing corner!

Well I have spent the last week piecing my nephew Jason and new wifes wedding quilt. I will go to the quilter on friday and I hope to have it ready for them when they return from their honeymoon the following friday. They are going to the big apple for the honeymoon. That is one place I have always wanted to visit but never to live, it is just way to big. I really hope they both have a wonderful time.

The backing on this giveaway is pieced from several different pieces and patterns.

Here are the official rules for my giveaway. Each comment recieves 1 chance and if you mention my giveaway you will recieve an extra chance, post a link to my blog and you will have another totalling 3 chances in all. Giveaway will close at midnight next thursday, the 5th and I will draw the winner around noon on the 6th.

Good luck to one and all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

We had some cold weather come thru on Mon nite and it has been cold with a little snow for the last two days but it got up to 62 degrees today. I think tuesday nites low was 9 degrees.

Tomorrow I celebrate my first year of blogging and will be doing a giveaway of a childs sized lap quilt. It is done in pinks, light blue and black with a really cute cat print. I hope people will spread the word and I will get lots of visitors. I have posted some pictures with this post. It looks more red in the picture but is actually a raspberry colored pink.

Picture day for Nana!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, I took my grandkids to the new picture place in town and came out with some really cute pictures. I have included a few in this post. Forgive me for whipping out the wallet and showing off my pictures. Isn't she a beautiful little redhead?

These two are my son's girls and the smaller one is our little preemie. She weighed in at 3.2 lbs when she was born and she is finally up to15 lbs and is now about 10 months.
I have spent the weekend working and will be quilting again by tomorrow nite. I definately miss my sewing when I am not doing it. I am working on another of my UFO's and will add it to my project a month challange when done. One more that I need to finish is my sister and her husbands wedding quilt. I recieved all her autographed squares 3 yrs ago right after her wedding and the top still sits and waits. I have it about 1/2 of the way finished and that will be on next months list.
Gotta go to work in the morning and have to go to bed. I will do another post in the next couple of days, till than keep stitchen.

Chanelle reminds me so much of myself at her age. My hair was carrot red and curly just like hers.

Girls Day Out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had a girls day out today with my SIL Sheila and best friend Paula. We went to see the movie

Marley and Me. What a wonderful movie, it celebrates the life of a dog with his family and friends and I heartily recommend you all to go see it, but bring tissues in your pocket because you will need them at the end. We went to On the Border first for our favorite, Tortilla soup.

We than hit a book store and target and finally the movie. I can't believe I sat thru that whole thing without popcorn or coke, but I was really full from the soup.

I am in a row robin with my online quilt guild and I worked on it last nite trying to get it done so that I can get it in mail tomorrow. I am also working on a wedding quilt for my nephew that will go on my one project a month challenge if I can get it finished in time.

I have seen all the pretty jewelry on ebay and etsy and wanted to try to make something. I went to the library last week and checked out some books on jewelry making and made this necklace yesterday. I am really quite proud of it. Now I must make something to wear with it.
Be watching my blog because next week I will be posting a giveaway to celebrate my first year of blogging. It will be a pink, black and blue kitty quilt that is crib sized. Take care guys and live life to the fullest.

I just found these cute little watercolor pictures that you can do with your kids. They would make cute little stitcheries also. This is an online magazine called " Inspire " and it is published each month. I love this little magazine.
