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!

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    Orchidsc are very hardy; they thrive on neglect.

  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!

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