Been a Busy Two Weeks!

Asterisk quilt top for Round 7 of the ORBC Quilt Along finished and waiting for winter for hand quilting. Too hot right now!
Ziplock baggie project to keep in my purse....1895 batiks...1 1/2" hexies.
Doll Quilt Swap 9 now living in it's new home in California.
Advent Calendar Swap....I had days nine and... twenty-one.
These two were the practice of course they are mine. My beading got much better on the others! They are 3.5" square.
Mystery quilt Clue 1...I made a mistake already. See that pile of 64 finished triangles in the middle? They look like the opened one below them....but they are supposed to look like the one on the left....hence the new pile of 128 triangles waiting to be sewn...but I just couldn't do it tonight!
Maria's graduation present..1 year 3 months late. At least she got it before going to the UK! That's an "M"....not a "W"!;)
Speaking of UK.....Maria's first purchase!
WVU colors!!
And still speaking of UK....present from coworker and pal Kerry at Webfabrics...I'm wearing them tomorrow!:) Thanks Kerry!

What we see driving down our dirt road...
...a deer and his gobbler pal!
I love the country!!



  1. Wow! you have been busy too! Love the asterisk quilt. Great colour combination!

  2. The emdroidery on your doll quilt is adorable - love that barn!!

    I love the colours on your asterisk, too. I'm thinking about hand quilting my new Christmas quilt - is it difficult? I've never done it.

    Great earings! *g* And Maria's wellies are cool beans!

  3. Wow, that was a lot in one post! Your finished quilt top looks great--I too would wait to handquilt till winter when it is cozy! Your advent blocks are cute and so tiny! And boo, your DQS didn't come to MA :(

  4. I love the color of your asterisk quilt!!! It is awesome. Also love the stitching on the DQS!

  5. It could be a W. I see a V in there too. It's just a multipurpose stamp letter thing.

  6. My favorite pic, of course, is the deer, but my other favorite is the doll quilt - wish i could see the whole thing! By the way, I was thinking of you last night - I sorted through my scraps that I won from you! Love them! I am putting them to good use and loving it! Thanks again!

  7. Wow, you are really on a roll! I love the asterisks. Great post.

  8. Love those earrings! And the embroidery in the middle of the doll quilt is so sweet. Glad to see Maria is getting prepared for an English winter!

  9. I love your Asterisk quilt top. I may have to look in my batik stash!

  10. I love your quilt and the embroidery is wonderful too! you've been busy!

  11. I'm so impressed with all you have gotten done! Love the way the fabric created the hills for your houses.
