A little bit of sewing and quilting

On the frame:

 

Just bind and put a label and sent to Jeffie!

 

 
 
 
Twins for a new RN at work, Sadie and Scarlett, so I embroidered little monkeys:
 
 

Speaking or embroidery, also did these 3 projects lately:

 

My friend's new puppy carrier:
 
My sister's Kleenex box:

And all the while still working on my Anniversary Quilt:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A little bit of this n that

Haven't done much lately! My house has been an unusual amount of chaos! We got beautiful new wood tile floors in all our carpeted areas, so we moved out of our bedroom for about a week, cleaned out all the drawers (yuck) while we were at it, made several trips to Goodwill to donate a bunch of stuff! I had to put so much stuff in my sewing room (because of course it rained during this time) that I couldn't even move around in there or find things......but all SO worth it....what an amazing transformation:

 
 
 

 

Sherwood painted our bedroom a beautiful shade of Carribean blue and the tile and new drapes went in!

And our bathroom (the room that started it all) was tiled-both the floor and baseboards!

I'm in love with this new flooring!

31st Anniversary

Yes, we celebrated 31 years today!

We went to a restaurant by the beach at sunset! The food was delicious, and the company outstanding!

I am a very lucky, spoiled gal!

Jeff's Quilt is a Flimsy

My brother asked for something from each sister to add to the decorations in his front room!

This is my contribution! I hope it goes wells in his house! I love the masculine fabric!

I will put it on the frame later today, after I get a backing together!

Traveling shoe Bag

A request was made by Melyssa for me to make her a shoe bag for her "spinning shoes". I dug up a pattern From A Spoonful of Sugar Designs and viola:
