Saturday This and That

It’s no secret that I have been less than thrilled with my free motion work lately. So I decided some practice/playtime was in order. I loaded up a piece of white fabric with tiny purple dots and a length of a striped cotton flannel and spent some time doodling. I machine bound it. 

 
  
  
I used bright pink Bottom Line thread from Superior Threads and a low loft Pellon poly batting. I’m still not thrilled with the quilting, but this will be a gift for my newest grand dog. I don’t think Winnie will mind. Here is a picture of Winnie (the little white dog) and my other grand dog Bambi. 

 
I recently went to a craft night with Daughter #1. We made wreathes from felt for Valentine’s Day. Here’s mine. 

 
Hubby bought me an orchid several years ago and not only have I not killed it, but it’s blooming again! 

 
Here is a book I recently finished. I really enjoyed it. 

 
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Your grand dogs are adorable and obviously very thankful for the quilt. I can tell they think you did an excellent job quilting it.

  2. Such a lovely practice piece – I never thought of binding them and actually using them for anything! I am also making a list of books I see when visiting people’s blogs so The Secret Keeper has now been added to my To Read list!
