Our little tree

I just wanted to post a pic of our little Christmas tree we put up in our foyer.  My dh and I are originally from Philadelphia  PA and we are die hard Eagle fans.... So I went and got him a small green and white tree  in honor of the 'eagles" colors and decorated it with all green and white ornaments.  I also still had some eagle fleece from when they sold it and used that as the tree skirt...thanks for stopping by.

Reversible Purse

Hi everyone...I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.  My sister, who actually moved to Florida  is spending time with me until after the holidays this year.  Well she has decided she wanted to learn how to quilt so in order for her to learn about her sewing machine I went to "All People Quilt.Com" and found a purse to stitch which is called "Reversible Purse".   This way she would accomplish something before we actually got into the process of making a quilt. Here is her finished purse which is the black one and mine which is the other one....I hope you enjoy!

Bonnie Hunter mystery..."Easy Street"

I finally picked some colors for the Bonnie Hunter mystery.  I am still waiting for a purple and a limey green to get here but this will be some of the ones that I will use.  I decided to go with the colors that Bonnie suggested since I really like them individually, I would not have normally picked them out to do a quilt.  So this will be a new lesson for me and I can't wait to see how it tuns out.

Chevron table runner

I made this for my son and his wife because they are changing there colors in their kitchen/dining room to black, white and red.  This is for Christmas and i have already gave it to both of them and then asked for it back..lol so it could hang at our local quilt shop in our modern group display.
Both of my children are into clean defined lines and geometric grids and stuff like that so this is what I tried to keep in mind when making it.  Well they really like it and that made me very happy.  I hope you have a wonderful day!


Black Strip quilt

I finally managed to get this together and finish the binding on it.  Our local quilt shop "Sew Bee It" is having a display in the month of December for our modern quilt guild and this will be one that I will have there and wanted to share.  Don't look to close to the FMQ it is something I am just learning at and well it is not the best but I think it turned out cute.

My little coin purse

I am just thrilled with this pattern that I bought from Madame Samm and if any of you would like to give it a try it is for sale here .  It is a little coin purse and with all of her pictures and details of how to do it well it just came together wonderfully.  So I wanted to share the one that I worked on this morning and I will be making some more, I can tell you that.  Thanks Madame Samm for a wonderful pattern...



I loved these colors together and I had to use the white thread because I did not have any heavy duty thread in the colors I needed but this one if for me so it is fine.  I hope you enjoy it too.

A birthday present

I had my friend Linda over for the first time since January and we had a wonderful time together.  It felt really good to be stitching with my buddy again.  Well along with her she brought me a birthday present and boy I can tell you they are very warm.  A few years ago Linda learned how to make socks and as much as she tried to get me interested, I just know that holding five or six needles at one time is just not something that I see me doing all at one time.  I am just not that coordinated...lol  Anyway I just wanted to share with you all the very pretty pink socks that I received for my birthday.  Thanks so much Linda I really do love them..
