Jeans Quilt -Top done!

Greetings Everyone!

What a lovely weekend we've had with plenty of sunshine!

I've been cutting up jeans and have got the top of the quilt together. What do you think? As is, it fits the top of a queen size bed but I just might add another row on top and on one side. We'll see.

I got the pattern (although I modified it somewhat) here.

I enjoyed working on this top and it went together pretty fast.

Got Fish?

Greetings everyone!

Amy is hosting a Quilt Fesitval. You must check it out because she has over 400 entries so far! I've decided to join and have posted my Got Fish? quilt. I like this one because it was one of my earlier quilts I made several years ago. I like the bright colors and of course the boat fabric used in the borders. It is hanging from the loft above our kitchen.

This pattern is called La Chocolada and is from the book "Quilts for Chocolate Lovers" by Janet Jones Worley.

Have fun!

Got Crabs?

Greetings Everyone!

I had a wonderful weekend. I got to eat crabs for the first time this season and they were wonderful! The crabs were actually from NC but prepared the Chesapeake Bay way with Old Bay etc. I met up with friends at a little place in OC. When I decided to join them, I put together a little wall hanging for my friends.

The pattern is free from Mimi Dietrich. I was running short of time so I didn't put the final border on my version and I didn't do too much quilting on it either. They liked it and that is all that mattered...and I LOVED the crabs!

Everyone should check this out if you haven't already. It just goes to show you that you should never judge a book by its cover so to speak. This woman is incredible. Many have said she has a voice of an angel. Amazing.

Today's Horoscope

Greetings Everyone!

I'm not one to regularly read my horoscope but just happened to take a gander at todays.

"Just because you know how to do something and think you should do it doesn't mean you will. The missing ingredient is motivation. For now, do what you really want to do instead of forcing."

Man, I am thrilled to have read this. Phew!
