Am I seeing double???

As usual on a quiet Sunday morning I am sitting here checking my email and visiting Facebook to see what everyone is up to.  Today is tamale making day at my house so it’s about to get crazy.  Yesterday was tamale making day for my cousins in San Diego and of course they posted pictures. 

So why am I seeing double???

This is a quilt that I have hanging on my wall in my living room.  It was made by Frances Moore (I love Frances) and I purchased it during a quilt auction many years ago.  According to the label it was made back in 1999.  Every Christmas I pull it out and display it. 


So what a shock it was when I saw this picture on my cousin Stephanie Landa’s Facebook page this morning.

Now I bet you are seeing double.

Five of a Kind - 2018

A while back I shared the the 5 travel cases I made for the “Five of a Kind” Christmas gift exchange that I participate in each years.  Once again, here’s what I made. 

IMG_0486Today was the day for our exchange and luncheon.  Want to see what I received????? I did good.  I’m very pleased. 

Here we go.


First up, this darling little wall hanging made by Justine Gentile.  It will look great on my front door in February. 


Another wall hanging but this one is made from wool.  See that big bell on his hat?  This was made by Lynette Ashton.


A beautiful hand stitch eye glass case (or maybe a case for my rotary cutter) was made by Christi Kolisnyk.


Pat Adair made this wonderful wall hanging to celebrate St. Patrick’s day.  This one may be a little large for my front door but I will definitely find a place to hang it in March.  Love the label Pat. 

Last but certainly not least is a candle holder with a battery operated candle.  Nancy Post made this using the bottom of clay pots for the base and the top told.  I guess she glued them in place before painting the entire this.  It is really well made. 


I guess that it until next year.  I’ll start thinking about that after we get through the holidays.

Design Wall Monday – December 3, 2019

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a picture of my design wall but here it is, a Poinsettia for my front door.  


I am getting ready to make a queen size quilt using curved piecing so I though this was a nice way to practice.  This is a free pattern available on the Sew Kind of Wonderful blog using their Quick Curve Ruler. 

I still need to add the binding before I can hang it on my front door and hopefully that will happen today.
