Well, I've been cutting t-shirts again, I found more "holey" t-shirts, just in time for the hot summer weather. These tees have come in handy as we've been having very little rain and the weather has been very muggy.

 I also made some pencil cases for my dd to give as gifts this up coming school year...I've been reminded that I need to start on Christmas, but somehow, I'm drawing a blank on that. Hopefully, something will speak out to me about that...maybe it will jump up and down, scream and wave at me saying, "Make me! Make me!" Yeah, right! Any suggestions?

Carolina Christmas Part 5

Okay part 5 done. Now, on to part 6...almost done! Woohoo!

I have to square the blocks, then sew them together. The blocks pictured below are not sewn together yet.

4 poinsettia blocks are to be sewn together and 4 Fox & Geese need to sewn together to create a Christmas Star block.

Let's hope it comes out okay.

Jewelry Roll-Up

I went to a Bernina Club meeting in June where we learned how to make a Jewelry Roll-Up. I haven't made one yet, but maybe someday...

Carolina Christmas Part 4

Carolina Christmas part 4 is done! Oops, I forgot to take a picture of the blocks after I added the green. Oh well. Maybe it will get done in time for Christmas this year. lol.

When school got done in May, I had tons of scraps that I brought home from school because the bin at school wouldn't close. I brought it home, washed it, ironed it and gave it away to some of the ladies at church. They were very happy. One of the ladies even made me something. I will take a picture of it and post it later.

Happy sewing everyone!

More SOL Dinner Theater

This is a quilt I made that was donated to the silent auction for SOL Dinner Theater. It is a "Turning Twenty" pattern, but I called it "Turning Seventeen" because I used seventeen different fabrics instead of twenty. I started it last year and finished it in time for dinner theater. It sold for $300.00. I was so happy!

This is the front of the quilt.

The back of the quilt looks like this.

Another contribution was this banner. My DD and I designed it. I then sewed it together and DH put in the grommets with the cords.
