Another finish for Febuary!!

Well I have something else to add for Febuary. I finished block #1 of my Verandah Views block of the month and will be starting on the second as soon as I finish block #1 of Gail Pans Christmas BOM. I am trying to catch up sinch more will be out soon. Here is a picture of my completed block with its border added.
I liked the purse I made for my friend Paula so much that I have started another for myself. I am using woodland bloom from Lila Tuellar designs and it will be very spring looking.
I just made a huge pot of chili and will sign off now to take it off to work. Wish me luck, it is for a Chili cook-off.

My friend Paulas birthday!!!

My bestest friend Paula had a birthday this last thursday. I had a gift in the works but hadn't finished it in time so I let her know she would have it by tomorrow. Well I finished it up tonite and really, really like the way it turned out. I used some of the leftover fat quarters of the blacks and reds I used for my nephews wedding quilt. I am posting a pic of it in the hopes she won't see it before I give it to her tomorrow nite. If you do Paula. please act surprised and believe me it looks much better in real life. Hope you like it my good friend.

I will be starting another one of these with some Lila Tuellar fabric that I have. It will be more of a spring oriented fabric. This one will be mine. I really love this pattern and it is so easy. You can find the pattern over at

My granddaughter was a junior bridesmaid at her Uncles wedding and she looks so good in this picture I had to post it. The other one in the picture is her new mama, Melissa. We are busy watching the Academy Awards but I need to get busy and start to work on another of my projects on the list to finish. Next on the list to complete is my sisters autographed wedding quilt.
Take care and have a great week.
Barbara in the VERY WINDY TEXAS PANHANDLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just finished the best movie and if you haven't seen it you really need to rent it and watch it. It is called Fireproof and it tells how two people in a marriage are splitting and how with the Lords help they are brought back togather. It was sooooooooooooooo good I was crying at the ending.

Hope you enjoy your quilt Karen and that you have a little lady in your home who might like it.

Wedding quilt is finally finished!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, my quilt is finished and my nephew is finally a married man. I hope the bride and groom like the quilt I finished to celebrate their love. Her colors were red, black and white which are also her favorite colors. They were the colors of the wedding so naturally I made the quilt in the same colors.

The bride as usual was beautiful and the groom as he watched her walk down the aisle had a look that was so full of love that I knew these two were meant for each other. Her choices of the dress and than the little bridesmaids all looking the same was pretty unusual to my point of view. I always thought the bride was to outshine them all but all in all it was a very pretty wedding.

I will have to add this finish as number 1 on my febuary list, with many more to come. The bride and groom leave on their honeymoon to NYC tomorrow.
