Hi everyone! a couple of nights ago I finished up block 3 of be attitudes. Monday is our BOM at Quilter's Outpost that Cyndi and I are doing this BOM. I am really enjoying these blocks, but most of all - keeping up!!! it feels so good to not get behind on something. I still only have block 1 done on angels among us, but I have the pieces all traced, the fabric ready and the block sewn together! hopefully that will get ready to put together very soon!
there are just SOOOOOOOO many little pieces to those blocks - but very cute.

I feel very confident that he doesn't check his granma's blog very often, so I am posting his birthday card! someone on SCALyahoo groups sent me the drummer sillouette and I used my
One more quilt to show you! this is going to be GW's quilt - Ride em' cowboy! I am calling this little guy GW, because the kids are thinking about Gideon Wayne. I think it will grow on me. for now GW is great - like GW McClintok, the character that John Wayne played. Loved that movie! This is really a very old UFO - 2002 I believe. I had all the handwork done for the longest time. then I put it away until it was needed. Ashton and Elena came for Christmas and I started thinking - hmmmmm I bet a new little one will be coming soon. I even thought that they would spring the news on us a Christmas. Well our little Maddy wasn't even a year old at the time, what was I thinking!!!! anyway, started going through my kits and UFOs and found the cowboy one. Thought it would be perfect if they were to have a boy. Well, in January they gave us the news and in March (I think) they found out it was a boy! Was Grandma on the ball! So now I just have to get the batting and backing and my friend Jodi will be quilting it for me. Whew!!!
Have a great day! Me, I am going to sew, doing a little organizing, sew, cleaning and make some more birthday cards!

This is Aria. again, I am not sure who makes the pattern. but when it is done, we will put crystals on it. just needs a border or two and a few more flowers.
These are our cars, packed full! Thank you Vicki for a wonderful week. And Micha and Ashley too! I can't wait for next year!
I have two more tops I finished, but didn't take pics. so I will do that and post in the next couple of days.
One day we went shop hopping with friends...This is Jon Ali quilt store - very nice!
this is from Material Girl, across the street. It wasn't a real quilt store. She had LOTS of textural type of fabrics. she sells lots of her things on Etsy. this bassinet fabric was skull and crossbones. I can't imagine a baby sleeping in this, but it was cute!!!!
This is Donna, Vicki, a lady standing guard, Marian and myself at Sew What! Big sale, so we found a few things.....
then Santa purses! not sure what pattern this was. this was Vicki's contribution!
Then onto bird pincushions! A bunny hill pattern.
this is a take 5 pattern. the inside is from my stash!
