Sue's Quilt

This blanket was made for my dear friend Sue. The light blue design matches her plates in her kitchen. I tried to make that the focal point and enhance it with the yellow and gold. Sue lives in Arizona where it is nice and warm. I am hoping this will spend time on her couch and pull her room together and not to keep her warm.  Lucky her.

D. C. Thank You!



I think we are always looking for ways to  change thing up in our lives.  Perhaps a new adventure the Woman's March in DC seemed to provide that new adventure in my life.  I drove there with a good friend and stayed with her friend in Maryland.  This family was so amazingly welcoming and kind that I wanted to thank them with something that would  stay with them for a life time.  I decide to make them a throw blanket for their family room.  They seemed to have many blues in this room so it was easy to throw together.  I had scraps sitting around from another blanket and decided to try a pinwheel easy to make pattern.  I loved how easy and fast this went together as well as how fancy it looks. I hope they will enjoy this in their years to come. Thank you.

Apron Love


I found a pattern for child's apron and decided to make one for my dear, sweet awesome, fun great niece. I then started to realize that her father may like one too so of course I used some of the fabric on hers, on his.  The Beatles fabric is on both as well as the peace signs.  I think they both really like to wear them and it brings them together.
