Yup, that's been me .... Missing In Action for the last couple of months, again.  I have been pleasantly busy off and on actually creating things. lol

I finished my flag quilt.  It turned out super cute.  I thought I would enter it in our county fair, but unfortunately things happen.  Like I got "glue" somehow on the back and front ... just enough so it wasn't predestine enough for the fair.  But, actually seeing things that placed at the fair .... I should have entered it.  I am making another one for my daughter, or daughters, and one of those will be hopefully perfect for next year's fair. lol

Moving on ..... We had a couple of sew-in-days in our Guild to work on Quilts of Valor.  Lots and lots of fabric is donated for these quilts.  There were 3 of us that had the same fabric, but all 3 totally different patterns.  The other 2 were just awesome, but of course no pictures to show.  So, I had to come up with something just as striking.

 It really is hard to see the fabric prints with the sun on it.  But ... truly it is a nice pattern.

My friend, Charlene, and I took a purse class.  It was a Professional Mini Tote Bag ..... It was a challenge at times, and often heard myself saying, I hate this bag, I truly hate this bag!!  But many hours of homework after two, three hour classes each ..... we finally finished them.  Here is my first purse - bag project.  Don't know if  I will ever tackle making this again!   We'll see.  But, I maybe will do a simple tote bag:-)

This was after 3 hours of sewing ..................................

TA DA!!!!

Inside has many pockets.  Oh Gee ... even a pocket 
for the I-Pad I am sure I am going to get one of these days:-)
Probably when H _ _ _ freezes over?

In between all that, I have been working on the Cottage Romance quilt.  I completed the inside with the pin-wheel stars and the log cabins.  I have to figure out the placement of these logs .... I just hung them on my wall.  I have 2 more large pin-wheel blocks that will be on the corners to complete.

It seems I just can't help but take blurry pictures!

Our quilt guild will be having their 2016 Quilt Show next fall.  So I have a few ideas running around in this head of mine to make.  Someone in guild suggested we have a section of only red & white quilts.  I am seriously thinking I will do one of these.  I have always loved the school house blocks, so, I am thinking that will be a must do.

I've just been summoned for dinner .... so have to end this here.  Please stop by again ... say hello.



  1. Your projects are all wonderful! The bag will certainly be worth all of the time and effort you have put into it. The Quilt of Valor is awesome. I love your Cottage Romance quilt and the flag quilt is perfect in my book! Thanks for sharing these!

  2. Thanks Jeanne ... I got to bite the bullet and get back to making those other 2 star blocks for my Cottage Romance. lol At the moment it's all about the new cross stitch pattern I want to work on .... all the time......
