|Today I made this cute little clothes pin holder. Won't it look cute on Grandma's clothes line?|

One of my great clients (I also do hair) has asked me to tackle a special request. She wants a over-sized queen, log cabin quilt! And as if that isn't enough, she would also like it all done in flannel!
She's lucky she is so nice!
Her and I took a little trip to the fabric store last week, and after washing and ironing, during the beginning of the week, I finally got to start cutting today.
I was able to whip out all my strips and my center squares off and on throughout the day today. I also timed myself, just out of curiosity, and it took me two minutes shy of two hours. Which for me, is really putting some steam on the cutting mat.
I just could not go to bed without putting a couple of squares together for a sneak peak. I am pretty happy with how they are coming together.
Two down, fifty-four to go!
I do believe you have to be a little crazy to love quilting. Take a big piece of fabric, and chop it into a bunch of small ones, just to make it big again.
Happy quilting everyone.

I have been having so much fun over the weekend with these black and white pinwheels.
I whipped up a stack of thirty in no time.
Next, I framed them in with this super pretty aqua blue.
I am just smitten with how it is all coming together. I love the exciting feeling I get when I see my vision coming together.
Now off to quilt!

Boy, it has been a while since I have posted anything. The end of summer just seems to be so busy, between my garden, and harvest, and getting the kids and their cows to the fair. I guess something had to give, and I am sorry to say, that it was my sewing.
Now the kids are back to school, and I have been spending some much needed time back in the old sewing room. My focus for this week was stocking.
Thanks for coming by. I hope to have a better presence during the fall, and winter! Keep crafting.
