Skirt Time

As I’m sure you all know, I am a skirt person.  I have made a lot of skirts and wear them every day.  Believe or not some of the old ones are just plain wearing out.  It’s time to make a few new ones.  I’ve collected a few fabrics from our recent trips.  These are not all of them but these are the four I’m going to start with.  I washed the fabric today so they are ready to cut out and sew up.


They should be fun and all very different.  I already have my t-shirts ready to go.

Design Wall Monday–June 11, 2018

I’ve been missing from the blog world for a little while but I have been doing some quilting.  We made a quick trip to New York to help celebrate my husband’s goddaughter’s birthday as a big surprise.  Now we are back home and getting back to our routine.

The last time I posted I showed my quilt that I was in the process of stitching in the ditch, ESS (every stinkin seam).  Once that was finished it was time to start doing the actual quilting.  The hardest part for me is deciding what to do.  Thank goodness my granddaughter Emily was around to help me with some of the quilting decisions.  I’m not done yet but I’ve made a lot of progress. 


As you can see I still have to do the bottom two corner melons and then I need to do some addition quilting on some of the tablecloth areas, they are still a little to poofy.  Here’s a closeup of some of the quilting.




I am thoroughly enjoying this entire process and can’t wait until the binding is added and it’s ready to hang on the wall somewhere.  Hmmmmmmmmm, I guess I need to find wall space for it.
