Monday Making

My "H" quilt is growing!.....

The little pieces are all Sprawled out on my sewing table...
and I sew a couple of blocks together as time allows.

The little "H"s don't take long at all!

At the rate I'm going it will be a very long time
before there is a QUILT!

This past week there was pretty much NO sewing time.

I was camping and took my loom along.
When camping...
I want to be OUTSIDE!

The leftover t-shirt strips
made a very PRETTY rug!

What are YOU making this week???

Monday Making

I am so happy to have a little finish.
I'm also sad.
I really enjoyed the time I spent adding EACH line of color!

I have a little stash of  yarns.
Seems I can't say "NO" When I see balls of pretty color
at the thrift store!
I need to USE THEM UP!!

This little crochet blanket will be given to a baby boy!
What are YOU making?

Monday Making

I've been keeping busy with little tiny pieces!

Each "H" contains
Three 1 1/2" squares
Two 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" rectangles.

This quilt I lovingly call....
Lots of ugly fabric goes into making
a TRULY scrappy quilt!!

What are YOU making??

Friday Finish

 Just a little finish for a friend.

That little machine embroidered house was a gift
and it adds SO much to these little potholders!

I try to USE up all the scraps over here....
but little projects like this don't help me at ALL with THAT dream.

At least there are a LOT of scraps to CHOOSE from!!

Potholders are 9"x 9"
and are made using an old CLEAN towel for batting.

Monday Making

When I make a quilt for a young man...
I gravitate to these colors.

I also LOVE adding stripes and plaids.
I actually have a SPECIAL box at my house....
JUST for stripes and plaids.
It EVEN contains some hand-me-down shirts!

I seem to get hand me down fabric too!

This plaid backing was given to me a long time ago.
Who knew it would be JUST RIGHT for this quilt??

The binding is finally ON
and I can call this quilt DONE!

I LOVED making this one!

This quilt is going to be given to a graduating
high school senior.
I have been making and giving quilts 
to the high school seniors of my church
for more that 15 years!
Often I organize sewing days for this project.....
but this year was so busy, I just worked on this alone.

What are YOU making this week??

Monday Making

IT's time for MONDAY MAKING!!!
I'm still whipping up small quilts for the table.....
to be auctioned off in April at a retreat.
I like this springy group of squares!

My husband has been busy in the garden
and we enjoy "HomeGROWN" at each meal!

Gardening is a special KIND of making!!
I am SO happy this happens at my house!

I'm also HAPPY when I get to play with these three!!!

Children and Grandchildren give us an EXTRA reason to MAKE!!

This is the beginning of a toddler summer sweater.
The pattern has long sleeves.
I'm going to make them short.

What are YOU making this week??

I loved pulling out these cheery red fabrics
and trying my hand at hearts this week!

This is a table mat made for a retreat auction coming up.

I loved adding the hand quilting.
It's those little stitches that make small projects

I used embroidery floss....
a large needle and BIG stitches.

I just echoed around the  hearts and added some simple lines.

The pattern for the hearts was found here.
I made the smallest version
and added some 1 1/2" strips between.

Happy Friday!
May your weekend bring you time to SEW!!!
