Oh what crazy days I have had! The school year start has been a bit crazy and I have managed to sew almost very day but only a little. My blogging,,,not so much. But, I am ever so grateful I have my sewing to help those crazy days come to a small little stop while I piece a few fabrics together and feel calm and happy. I have pieced together and quilted this cute little lap quilt. I bought the fabric on sale in Ohio and am pleased with how it came together. The thread I used to quilt it matched and blended so well I had trouble seeing where I had been. The mistakes were made because I couldn't tell where I had already sewn! I just need to add the binding Yay!

I made up a few flannel blankets as well. They will be passed out as gifts this month.
My adorable grand daughter turned 1 and had a little party at my house with just family and I had some fun making some koozies for a final swim party. They turned out pretty cute. The guests liked them too and took them home.
I should have taken pictures of them around the water, beer and soda!! They look better there!

  1. Hello Dona,
    The lap quilt is lovely - the subtle shades of blue and yellow are really restful. I fully understand the problem of not seeing where you have been with a matching thread. Done that! The finished effect is worth it, though.
    Would you like to link up with Free Motion Mavericks on my blog? It would be great to see you there.
    Love, Muv
