April in Review

What a busy month it's been!  I have managed to accomplish a few things though.  So for my 2012 New FO Challenge I'd like to show you first the Spring Table Topper Blog Hop hosted by the talented Mdm Samm from Sew I Quilt.  Here are a few of my entries; 

 Springtime Table toppers

My FAVORITE People call me Grandma!

Fall is one of my favorite seasons!

I met some really nice ladies during this blog hop and added over 50 new followers to my blog!  Thanks Ladies for following my blog.  I'm really glad you liked my Table Topper quilts and am hopeful you will enjoy seeing my newest creations as much as I enjoy seeing yours.

Next was my Doll quilt swap for Diane; 

Also finished Love the Life you Live counted cross stitch project.

Quilted this Awesome flag quilt my BFF  Becky made for me, border is in the zip lock bag on the cutting table...maybe today...

Finished these gifts the day before the family left for their new home in Idaho phew that was close!

Got a good start on a swoon quilt for a give away at work on the 8th of May.

Another good start on my Sping Wall Hanging, just needs to be blanket stitched and quilted.

Finished my Red White & Blue counted cross stitch for my  Summer decor.

My BFF Connie made 3 of these Lady Bug Skinnies and I'm quilting them.  2 more to go.

All in all a very productive month I'd say.  The more stressed I get the faster I stitch/quilt/work.  We've been looking for a new home and although that is fun it's also stressful moving from what's familiar to the unknown.  At least I have my sewing machine and stash to give me comfort as I move forward in this journey of life.  
Angie (daughter) texted me and said PJ (Presley) DGD #7 needs a pillow with her name on it, a rag doll and a towel with her name on it. "Chop Chop Grandma"
Guess that says it best, time to get off the computer and into that sewing room and make...let see that Schnibble quilt is still 2 charm packs and that Swoon quilt is to be quilted on Wednesday oh and a pillow for PJ not to mention the binding on the flag quilt, the blanket stitching on the flower wall hanging oh and the quilting on the lady bug quilts....................................................


  1. My gosh, you've been stitching like a crazy woman! Yippee! Now get to work on those things for PJ.

  2. Oh, you can move next door to me - what motivation and inspiration. I have a PJ too - but a boy. He has no requests yet.

  3. Busy, Busy girl! What a wonderfully productive month! Good luck with the move!

  4. Chop, chop, Grandma - too funny! But the good news of it is that they treasure your handiwork, and I'll bet you enjoy making it for them just as much! Good luck on your home search - that's always a stressful event.
