Life and Patches Workshops

Life ...
The box of Dustin's forgotten boots was returned to me because the 'send' label came off. I quick took it back to the post office and they shipped it out again at no extra charge. How nice is that?

While Evie helped clean for an elderly lady from church, I got to take care of Teryn and Rusty.

I'm ready to go buy a new washing machine. The clothes wrapping around the agitator is quite bothersome.

... as a Quilter
My sister Polly gifted me with lots and lots of basting pins. I was so glad for them today getting Josiah's quilt ready for machine quilting.

Recently I have taught my "Patches" class in Virginia ...

... and Mississippi.

I just love the creativity of the students and ...

... their choices for the silhouettes.

Life ...

I finally finished Teryn's puppy quilt.

 Of course he was more interested in the train than the quilt.

Our newest grandchild, Rusty Cole with Grampa. I think he is a pretty baby.

Josiah has learned to like the slide now. However he still wanted to hold my hand for his ride down.

Tina at play.

I attended a baby shower. Chrystal's mom Cheryl made a list of the gifts and givers as she opened each present.

Her sister Rosanna knew how to keep the children quiet for a little while with books that were given in place of cards.

Bridal Shower and Hand Stitched Binding

Life ...
I attended a bridal Tupperware shower for Sheri Shirk this evening put on by her cousins and friends.

... as a Quilter
I love stitching the binding to the back of Teryn's quilt. It makes wonderful handwork.

Projects -- Daisies, Sailboat V, and Teryn's Quilt

I'm still working on my "Daisies" from the workshop that I took with Susan Cleveland.

Sailboat V is now complete.

This piece developed from a picture I had taken of my nephew, Scott. I tweaked it on the computer to make a sketch and then printed it on fabric. Using black, I thread painted the sketch and then quilted it.

Sailboat V -- $50 SOLD
8.5" X 11.0 "


I have finally finisihed quilting this crib size quilt for our grandson, Teryn. Now ... on to binding it.

Check the linky party at "Off the Wall Friday."

Teryn's 2nd Birthday, Guests, Linda's Lilies, and Outside Fun

Life ...

Teryn and the turkeys greeted us for an evening of ...

... celebrating his 2nd birthday.

We welcome a new grandson, Rusty Cole into our family. Quinten & Evie now have a quartet of boys.

Recent visitors in our home were my first cousin Elaine & Larry Picket, all the way from Yakima, WA.

And from further away, we welcomed Horatiu and Gina from Romania.

Georgi and Tina wanted to see what it looked like inside the hog barns.

Talya joined them in the cotton. It wasn't as much fun as they were hoping with all the hulls and sticks poking them.

... as a Quilter

I have finally started to quilt Teryn Ray's quilt that I started way back here.

Linda and Carol Sue came and spent the day with me. Linda quilted her "Lilies" that she had started in my class in Starkville.

I really like how it turned out.

The quilting added an extra dimension of color and texture.

His Gramma Hilty and cousins were here to help celebrate.

Joyful Hearts Chorus and Teryn’s Quilt

Life …

The Joyful Hearts from Lebanon, PA gave a singing program at our church.

Our house teamed with youth that evening.

Three of the Risser siblings, my cousin Dennis’ children, and others stayed with us for bed and breakfast.

… as a Quilter

My design wall from weeks ago changed from this …

… to this.

Now it’s getting shoved to the back burner again to wait for the quilting.

Check out others work at Patchwork Times.
