Sew Busy

I have been busy... sewing! I'm doing last minute details on quilts I will hang in our show. Bindings, hanging sleeves, labels. I'm tired of bindings! But it feels good to be nearing the end of show preparation.

Meanwhile, I felt like I was doing so well (preparation-wise) for the show that I could take some time to work on fun donation quilts. This is what I really love to do. I finished this house one that you saw in progress.

I finished this fall-colors top that is made from Lotto block winnings. Both of these will be quilted by someone other than moi and then sent on to some kids who need hugs.

I made some Lotto blocks over the weekend. First you see the little 6-inchers I sometimes send to Nancy, the coordinator, as a little gift.

These are the Lotto blocks for January.

This is the February block. I might make more later, but after I got one done I felt like stopping, so I sent it in with January.

Today I put Darcie's little gift in the mail. I hope she likes it!

And by the way, thank you so much for all the visitors and the comments. I love it! I appreciate knowing that people stop by my little blog!

Thank you for your very kind comment on my blog. I'm off to look further at yours now. I adore that quilt with the leaf pattern. Just gorgeous.

I love the way the house quilt turned out. Very cute. Some little kid will love it.

It's always invigorating to see that light at the end of the tunnel, isn't it?! Looks like you're moving along quite swiftly in this new year, Carol! February blocks done...already!!!

You'll know that I'll love what you send to me! Of course...I loved what you sent me a couple of months ago...but you made me send that back. You're not going to make me send this back...are you?!?

Hi Carol. Thanks for the compliments on my kitchen. It is so nice to have fully functioning appliances and a nice atmosphere! The microwave is in the island. At the end of the kitchen, I have a range with the ovens underneath the cooktop.
Love how your quilt turned out!!!

You've been productive haven't you? Love the wonky houses, I haven't tried them yet.

I didn't notice the little car block when you first showed us the house quilt. How cute!

I have a question about the silent auction during your guild show. How can I contact you?
