sewin' sewin' sewin'....

I've been really busy this week working on quilts.

I finished one doll quilt top for Doll Quilt Swap 3:

disappearing nine patch completed

I started my alternate doll quilt top for Doll Quilt Swap 3:

a new row

And I'm working on a quilt for my neighbors' little girl who will be turning one next week:


there are more pictures here on flickr

We were supposed to go see my Mom and Chuck today. But Marguerite has slowly been building up to a full blown cold. sneezes, coughs, snot. So I was able to get lots of sewing done today while the kids watched mineless tv, I mean rested. We recently change our cable lineup, and now we get Boomerang TV (I think that's what it is called). It's mostly old cartoons like Flintstones, Jetsons, Yogi Bear, Atom Ant etc. It's funny to hear the shows from another room while I work. I think I know every episode of the Flintstones from when I was little. Fun stuff.

I'll post later this week on the progress of the quilts above.

The doll-quilts both look beautiful! The stars-houses-flowers quilt is great!
Looking forward to seeing more of the birthday-present-quilt too....
