For 3+ weeks, the rotary cutter was slicing, the sewing machine was going medal to the petal, the fingers was plying those handstitches that was needed, the many list was growing and my brain was frying from the over use that it was exiperencing. The cooking and the housecleaning took a detour as my wonderful other half took those over so that I concerate on the sewing of inventory. So a Big Thank You to Him!!!! I ended up making some wheres in the neighorhood of 40 items that went from a dozen reversible homespun mugrugs, to multi-purpose mats in a variety of sizes, to 3 table runners to wallhangings.
I even tried a few new patterns for a couple of the wallhangings. I used Kathleen Tracy's "Bear's Paw" from her "Prairie Children and Their Quilts" (pg 25). Mine was a lot less scrappy and more planned out. One with black paws and the other has brown paws. I also made 2 of her "Civil War Nine Patch" from her "American Doll Quilts: 16 Little Projects That Honor A Tradition" ( pg 43). I made that one in Red, White (well okay~tea-dyed white) & Blue. Which just happen to be the Quilt of the Month on her yahoo group that I belong to. Love making miniSo quilts!! I can get them in a more fashionable timeline.

So then I also had a 1st birthday party for my Grandson to go to ~~ which also is the 1st time I have had the pleasure of wrapping my arms around Him.

I am currently handquilting a baby quilt for another friend for her grandson. This was made from several of us on thequiltandneedle.com group. This was made in brights and actually is eye pleasing to me as I'm not a big one on brights. Maybe because I don't have much of them in my stash. But it is growing on me.
