Happy Valentine's Day!

I finished the lady slipper art quilt.

Now I am working on one with pansies.

I also finished this little primitive Easter lamp.  I made the eggs from muslin and painted them with acrylic paint.  Then I sanded and distressed them and added tea-dyed laces.  The rabbit is made from some of the upholstery fabric that my future daughter-in-law brought me. I just put them in a little crate that I picked up somewhere.  I think it looks very sweet.  I have a couple more of the crates, so I may be making some more of these. 
If you like this little lamp, please let me know.  The price is $18.00 plus shipping.  Message me to purchase.

I hope you're having a blessed day!

Work in Progress

It has been far too long since the last post! 

Currently I am working on quilt blocks that are appliqued by machine and hand quilted.  I love the hand quilting process.  It is so relaxing for me to just sit and quilt with my fingers.  And it is so rewarding to see the results of all that time.  I have become a pretty speedy hand quilter, but each one takes a lot of time.

The dutch girl needs binding and a hanging sleeve.  I think that both of these will be wall hangings.

The lady slipper wallhanging is in the process of being hand quilted. I love this pattern and I think I'll do a series of floral designs.

Blessings to All!

Finished Projects

Well, after lots of prayin' and rippin' the quilt is finished.  I let it and my nerves rest for about three days, then went back to work after I got prayed up.  It's finished.  I have come to the conclusion that I need more practice at this long arm quilting thing.  I am determined to at least get better at it. I got the binding finished on Monday and here it is.

This week I have been working on some things to take to the gallery on Saturday.  This is Sadie, my little pioneer doll. She will sell for $35.00.  E-mail to purchase.

And some painted books that can be hung on the wall with a ribbon or used as a shelf sitter.  These sell for $8.00 each.  E-mail to purchase.

~~~Hope everyone has a beautiful day! Thanks for checking out my blog!

God Bless!
