Accessorize...always a good answer!

My creative bug bit me last night as I was sitting on my couch watching told me to get out the fabric I'd been collecting to make pillows and a slipcover for my ottoman, I did...and thankfully a lovely local quilt shop just happened to be open today for special hours to fill in some fabric I was lacking in my stash (hee hee!!)! The shedders love whatever it is I bring home!!!

So I got to work...and so far I've made two of these (yes I simple and easy to make)...

I LOVE black and white with a splash of color. My couch and chairs (which I love) have needed some accessorizing...yeah for pillows! Can't wait for more transformation. I'm not sure why I've waited so long to work on these projects. It's making me quite happy as well as the amazing sunny day we had today! More tomorrow...

Another churn dash...and a chirpy good day, etc...!

Birds are chirping, loudly!!! Sounds nice! And my shedders love sitting in the windows... occasionally I hear them chattering.

I've finished another months worth of blocks for my quilt block exchange. Only 2 more months to go...

And Easter was here so quick and now nieces wanted fleece experience quilting two layers of fleece and adding the satin blanket binding (I don't like that stuff...hard to work with and not very soft...I'll look for something else next time or make my own...). I practiced some free motion quilting, even writing their names, so I had fun! And the best part is they both LOVE them.

And yes, my niece picked out the Christmas-y John Deere fleece!! She sleeps with it every night now!!! Glad it's getting such good use!

Hexagons of Botany

Start to my Hexagon Quilt... if I didn't already have enough projects going!!! This looked fun and easy to start so I jumped in using Botany.

I love this fabric...

Here's the start...

One of my shedders...I'm finding orange/white fabrics to make a special quilt that will be called "Oscar"...not sure on the pattern yet. Any ideas?! I love ORANGE!! :)
