lots of stuff!

hey everybody! sorry I haven't post in a couple of days. been very busy! I am getting together with my friend - Vicki from Vegas! and we will be spending the whole week sewing. we get kits ready for each other, then sew, sew, sew, all week. we are very productive during that time. but I have a few pics for you!

this is Demi girl! she just got her hair cut and will be starting 7th grade soon. isn't she beautiful? she's got those BIG brown eyes from her grandmother you know! LOL!

the pincushion is a sample for the shop. it was a group effort between Sandy and I. the pattern is The Abbey Bag, not sure who makes the pattern. sorry!

the first pic is the start of my grand mother's flower garden quilt!!!! I cut the hexagons on my cricut machine and SCAL! YEAH!!! I can cut 18 then 13 out of 1 sheet of paper - 31 hexes!!!!

if anyone is interesting in the file, please leave a comment and I can send it to you. be sure to leave your email address. I don't know how to save it so you can download it. sorry!

hope you all have a wonderful 4th! It's been wonderful.....

  7. Great to use the Cricut, for GFG. I've made lots of flowers with English Paper's the connecting that I didn't do. I just found your Blog, how fun that you have even more grandchildren than I do and you're married to "Batman".
