Meredith's Inhertance Quilt












I can't believe a whole month has gone by and I haven't posted, where does the time go. Here are some more of my embroidery blocks that I work on here and there, it's a real easy project to just pick up and go. I am trying to get some christmas things finished, as I am sure so is everyone else. I have my secret santa project finished, just have to get it in the mail. I will be able to share some more projects after christmas. Just in case I don't get to post soon, everybody have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!!!!!!

Bag from Portugal







This is my bag from Noemia, all the way from Portugal. Thank you so much for the bag and all the goodies. I shared the chocolate with my family so they could have a taste. Of course everybody loved it. The magazine has some wonderful patterns in it and the xmas cross stitch ribband is really nice. Thank You Noemia for the wonderful gifts and thank you Linda for the bag swap.

Show and Tell





























I know that I haven't posted in a long time, being a grandmother and working on the bag swap have taken my little bit of free time. My bag is mailed and now I can get back to working on christmas, my house blocks and some embroidery blocks for another quilt that I am doing. It is called Meredith's Inheritance Quilt. There are 30 blocks and I work on them when I can't work on christmas at our little group that stitches on tuesdays. Here are some pictures of some of the ones I have done.

No Place Like Home
















Finally I have gotten my camera and PC to work together, it took me forever to make it work. Here are some pictures of the quilt I am appliqueing by Barb Adams and Alma Allen. The name of the book is Home Sweet Home, it has two versions of the quilt , one by Barb Adams and one by Alma Allen, I am doing the one by Alma named No Place Like Home. There are nine blocks and I am working on my sixth one. Here are some pictures of the ones I have finished (if I can make this work)

Yea!!!!!!!!! I did it.

Love to Applique: Hello Blog Land

Love to Applique: Hello Blog Land

Hello Blog Land

I have finally set up a blog page, with a lot of help from my best friend Pat (Bits and Pieces). I would be totally lost without her. We spent most of the day with her showing me how to set it up and when I got home I still had to call her for help. We had a lot of fun and did some stitching afterwards. Hopefully I will be able to post some pictures of projects I am working on (Dear Jane Quilt, Bless This House BOM ). without any problems, keep your fingers crossed I can make this work or you know who will be getting a call.
