Just finished quilting and binding the little crib quilt. 
These little critters are machine embroidered onto vintage feed sack material and I think they are adorable.  I then blocked and bordered the quilt in teal green.  

This is my very first attempt at custom quilting with my long arm machine.  It's not perfect, but with a little practice, maybe I'll get better at it.  My machine is not equipped with a stitch regulator.  I think that would probably help a lot.
Anyways,  here are pictures.

Let me know your thoughts and feel free to offer suggestions and hints.

Candle Cozies

I have an embroidery machine on loan from a friend, Ginger, who bought a newer machine.  She was kind enough to allow me use of her older model Bernina in exchange for painting lessons. I have recently been experimenting with some vintage feed sack material from another lovely friend, Carly, of Mountain Light Jewelry.  Carly inherited quite a lot of this material and was generous to share with me (Momma Pat).

Here are some candle cozies I put together this past week.

Aren't they sweet?

Blessings to all

Absent but not Forgotten!

It has been a while.  I have not forgotten my blog, but I have been busy with other things lately.
Been working on some new quilts.  One full size and one crib size.  Pictures will be posted soon.
I've also been working on a few other  projects that will also be posted in the near future.

My husband was away last week on a fishing adventure in Canada.  Such a great opportunity for him to visit that part of the world and get some awesome pictures.  Photography is a well loved hobby for  LB.  The photos that he took were great, so I thought I would share today.

There were many more.  I think they are pretty awesome!  Let me know what you think.  I love to hear from you all.
