Circling Swallows

As some of you know, I won the circling swallows project on the recent ink-lingo giveaway. I got lucky again! The mailman brought it on Saturday. I started on it on Tuesday and thought I would show you my progress so far. Not all that much but quite a bit of sewing none the less. It was what I needed to get me going as I have been in a slump for a couple of weeks. I will show you further progress as it is made. Thank you again Sandy for sending me this wonderful project.

Itsy Bitsy Hexagons

I just wanted to see if I could do hexagons this small, and the answer is yes! The hexagons are .25 inches. I english paper pieced these!! After I sewed the hexagons together I appliqued it on to a 5 inch charm square. I can't decide if I want to make a picushion with it, or do three more and make an itsy, bitsy quilt.

Amanda searching for the globe to the yard lamp amongst the fallen maple tree branches. This girl really needs to touch up her dark roots.

Friday morning we had a terrible storm go through our area. It wasn’t a tornado, but they have said we had 85 mile per hour straight line winds. There are so many beautiful trees damaged and destroyed. My favorite tree on my place is, or I guess I should say was, the maple in my front yard. It was split in two and had to be cut down. It also blew over the privacy fence in the back yard and knocked some big limbs out of the trees back there. One of them fell on my car and put a hole in the windshield. I can’t park my car in the one car garage that we have, because my husband has to park his old Corvette in it! So Monday is dealing with the insurance agents. Such fun! This morning something happened that did cheer me up. I won Myra’s giveaway! She is going to make me an x-bag. How great is that???

Kathy sent me this pic and I thought it was funny in a gross sort of way.

Just for Fun

This was on the front of a birthday card given to my son, Daniel. It made me smile and that is a good thing, as Martha says.

Pincushion Finish

This is the finished pincushion I made with the inklingo templates. I guess I shouldn't toot my own horn, but I really like the way it turned out. I am making another one out of the same fabrics, but I don't think I will like it as well as this one.
