Yes, that is the question - what am I up to? Seems like I have nothing for good pics to post lately!
That is because I"m working on a secret project! Ok, not really secret from all of you. It is our guilds challenge quilt due in May - and since I"ll be gone the end of April at Paducah - I CAN'T WAIT - I have to make sure it is done before hand. So I can't share it with you right now because there are sneaky little spies out in our guild who just might visit my blog to see what I'm doing! Anyway, that is sucking up all my time lately. But I must say it is VERY maverick and VERY funny!
It is spring break for my 4 kids - they already are sooooo booored. There is nothing to do, whine, whine, whine. I took my oldest up to Milwaukee this morning to fly out to see my mom. I know my mom will be so happy to see her. Holly and her have a very special bond and this will really make her happy. Since I had to run up there this morning I"m working from home - which is just lovely with all the whining going on! Oh well.
The top picture is my first hand quilted quilt that hangs in my living room. Lucy shared a picture of a small quilt she has hanging up in her living room and she said she never gets tired of it - well this is my quilt that stays up in my living room all the time. I'm so happy with my hand quilting on this one. So it is kind of special to me. Then I"m sitting here looking out my back sliding door and the sun is out FINALLY. So I decided it was time for some spring quilts up on my other walls. I dug out some old pics of some of them to share with you. Now to decide which ones go up!
The Spring one with the words and small baskets I made last year and did McTavishing in the background. You can't see it very well here but it turned out way cool - very heavy quilting.
The one with the tiny little wild flowers is one of my very favorites. My friend Christelle in France made this one for me years ago. She is so talented with quilting. She hand pieces and hand quilts everything. Isn't the quilting on this one to die for! And the flowers are sooo tiny. I think I love this one so much because I could never make this! Or at least it would drive me crazy making it!
Well back to work. I can't wait until I can share my secret project with you!
