Consequently, I have so much to share . . .
Here are some table runners I designed and made for Gathering Stitches as part of the flower of the month series:
|February - Violets|
|January - Carnation|
|April - Daisy|
I made this:
from the "Toast Points" pattern in the book "Let's Do Lunch"
which is the new table runner of the month program from Gathering Stitches. Each month we are doing a runner from the book, plus a recipe plus a bonus pattern made from the scraps. I made the potholders from the leftover points from the stitch and flip method.
I am excited right now because my youngest son is home for a couple of weeks from college and we have been having a good time. Feeding the animals. The little ones were so excited to have help pulling up the tasty plants.
Here are some photos from Quilt Market in Portland:

So the drama was getting our car towed from in front of the hotel at 3 am on Saturday morning, the day we were supposed to head back home, and being stuck until Monday when the DMV offices were open to sort it out. I suppose there are worse places to be stuck then in L.A. near the beach, but we were not planning on 2 extra days at the hotel, renting a car, and the headache of standing in line at DMV Monday morning. (I got to the DMV at 6:45 am for an 8:00 opening and was #30 in line!!) We were originally told it would be about $1100 to cure the registration snafu issue, but thankfully a call to the New Mexico MVD and $7.00 and one faxed temporary tag later, we were back on the road home.
I quilted this cute little buckaroo quilt that Connie made: I did lassos and stars in gold.
Our little pumpkin was baptized the day after her Grandma passed. She loved her dress and all of the attention!
Here is a quilt that I quilted for Jeannie - I love working on her quilts. She is quite talented. I love the peach and aqua for a baby quilt.
As usual, I will close by saying I hope to post more regularly!! ttyl
