DONITA.  Please send me your snail mail address.  If you get it to me today, I'll mail it later; otherwise, it'll have to wait until next week.. My dh and I are off for an adventure visiting friends in Tucson.

I did get my April mini (Wendy Reed, constantquilter, pay attention!!!  VBG) finished and bound.  Just need to write the label.  My friend and favorite machine quilter, Sandy Lachowski, did a most phenomenal job.  I'm going to show you some of her quilting.  There are cute flowers everywhere in the quilting!

There is even smoke coming out of the chimneys!  Sandy is awesome!

This was a Primitive Gatherings pattern from a couple of years ago called Happy Home.  I'm done with the quilt and would be happy to pass the pattern on to someone who loves doing wool applique.  Please let me know if you're interested in receiving it.  It's only 27x33

We had our grandkids this weekend and  I just have to share this picture with you.  Little Jack was playing with my Sharpies and decided to practice his writing on HIS ARM.  Fortunately I have some Norwex washcloths, which are the most amazing cloths for getting stubborn stains out.  A good scrub in the bath and it was gone.  But just too funny.  I think he was pretty proud, actually!  Another reason to keep an eye on the little ones all the time!


  1. I like the "Happy Home" design very much. You did a good job.
    You seem to always be off on adventures. I am not big into travel like I used to be. Do you take sewing projects with you?

  2. Cute little quilt! So much detail on such a little space.

    Cracked up at Jacks tattoo!!
    Have fun with Mark.

  3. Excellent job on your Happy Home quilt! It looks like an amazing amount of work, and you did a beautiful job. Thumbs up on the quilting, as well!

  4. Too cute! the grandson, that is. Well, the quilt too!

  5. Love your quilt! And the marker on the cutie is just precious.

  6. Your little quilt turned out so well, I do like the pattern, but already have so many wool projects I haven't made, I can't add to the pile.
    Your quilter did an excellent job on it, too.
    Oh, goodness, what a budding tattoo artist. :)
    Safe travels to you--enjoy that Arizona sun!

  7. Oh wow! That quilt is adorable! I'm posting the minis at the end of the month and the Pam Buda projects on the first. I will definitely link this in to the end of the month post. Good for you for getting it done so soon!! Have a ball in AZ. I think Jack's writing is very good for his age!!

  8. Your April mini is fabulous. There's so much to look at with all the details. The quilting is lovely and adds another layer of the WOW! factor. Plus you got it done so early.
