A SLECTION OF PROJECTS.....

  At this time in my world....I have 4 projects I'm working on.  Plus 3 Quilts to Tie and Bind.  So I don't really need to start something new....but...I got my Red Gingham fabric a couple of days ago...and I'm dying to start cutting it into blocks to work on my Kitchen Quilt.  BUT...that will have to wait.!

For the last 3 or 4 days I've been working on my Salt and Sand Quilt.  I've got the last of the Clams pinned down and have started appliqueing them on. 

I've got a nice little pile of Strip Blocks...but I'm going to have to have lots more to make a quilt out of this.  I'm making this one for me...for my bed.   These blocks are also for my Born to be Wild Quilt.  Are you doing the Blog Hop??  Need info on this?  Just hop HERE to get the info.

I've also started another Tile Quilt...only it's a Tiny Tile Quilt.  I'm using 3 1/2 inch muslin squares for the base.

Well, that's it for today...what are are stitching on today?  I'm linking up with:

A LITTLE SURPRISE...

 I was digging around in my UFO box of quilt tops.  I found a Quilt I had started years ago.  Can't remember what I was doing with this quilt....so I'm calling it an Improv Quilt.  There's really no rhyme or reason to this quilt...well, you'll see....

see what I mean...you have a basket with hearts...marbles fabric w/yoyos..Lincoln Logs, Stars and Stripes, Fish and the final border of blue fern.  Anyhow, I got this sandwiched along with...

The Tile Quilt

So now I've got 3 quilt to tie and bind.  

I took a stroll around the yard yesterday...My Iris are blooming...

We also added some Lupines

 and Petunia's to the front garden.  The Petunia's look kine of lonely, but they will spread out over the summer and fill the pot.

The Calla Lille's we planted last year are dong wonderful.


 Well, that's it for today...what are you working on today?  I'm linking up with...

WHEN NOT QUILTING.....

 I work on my flower beds...well my son helps a lot with that.  At the moment the Iris is blooming.

We just added some Lupine's and Calla Lillie's to the front garden.  It's still a work in progress.  Haven't quite got it all organized yet.

On the quilting front...still working on several projects.  I've got a bag full of odds and ends scraps.  I can't stand to throw them away.  They aren't big enough to use, but still I can't throw the away.  Sooooo, I decided to make a Tiny Tile Quilt with them.  The blocks are 3 1/2".

It will take a lot of these to make a quilt, but I have lots of scraps to work with.  Don't we all!  Do you save your tiny scraps?

QUILTS AND BOOKS.....

 Hi everyone,

To all those awesome MOMS out there...


Quilts I'm working on....

The Teapot Quilt is being tied...

I've been working on my STRIPS...I have a pretty good stack of them now.  I've been pulling some of my "more" colorful fabrics to put in this, I tend to buy off the bargain table, so I get a lot of fabrics no  one would usually buy.

I've also been reading...I kind of lost my book mojo sometime in the last 5 years.  So I've decided to go back to my basics...read authors I like.  This is my personal challenge.  James Patterson is my most favorite author.  I've read all the Alex Cross series.  So I've decided to start on the Micheal Bennett series.  The first book is "Step on a Crack".  So far it's keeping me reading which is the idea of doing this.   You can see my list of books in my tabs section.

That's it for today...I'm linking up with:

UPDAT: OLD AND NEW PROJECTS......

 Well, I had a squirrel snick into my projects....


I got an e-mail from Needle & Thread...Mary Corbet is doing a series on small embroidery projects.  I decided to do the Daisy.  I'm still on Part 1...but making progress.  I've added a Gadget on my side bar with links to the Daisy, also a link to the other little projects Mary is sharing, if you want to try them.  

It's also time for a report on my Band Sampler....This is a challenge over at Needle & Thread.  The idea is to stitch something everyday and to only use the threads you already have...NO NEW THREADS.  I've always wanted to do a Band Sampler and it seemed like the best time to start one.  Although I've been kind of lax in stitching every day.

Over at Scrap Happy, it's time to show off your RED.  I'm doing a basket for each month for RSC 2021..the color for May is Red....this is my little RED basket.

Well, that's it for today...I'm linking up with...
