Quilting is SO Much Fun!

I am having a wonderful time making these cute quilts from Lori Holts book, Farm Girl Vintage. I pulled out my Farmall tractor and a few chickens for my mantel.

My little bluebirds are perched on this cute hanger! I'm having fun with the farm theme, especially since my husband grew up on a working dairy farm.

I still love my Pyrex bowls and vintage mixmaster!

Isn't this strawberry adorable!

I love these bright and cheery fabrics!

Have a cherry week!

Having Summer Fun

I have been out of school for nearly a month. Yippee! I was ready for Summer Fun!

We were able to see our daughter and family for two days as they rushed through S. Ca. visiting family. The Grandkids are bigger and still adorable!

We have worked in the yard so much, and we are also readying our little house in the desert for sale, (please say a prayer for it to sale). I have trigger finger again, (too much scrubbing and hula-hoeing) and had a shot last week. Hopefully it will straighten out again and I won't need surgery. I'm taking my vitamins!

But, here is what I have been doing that has brought me great pleasure...

I'm using Lori Holts book, Farm Girl Vintage. It is the cutest book, and I think I love every single quilt block in the book!

I've made a few mistakes, but I am learning as I go. Some of my points didn't match, but I think I figured it out. I wish I had a personal teacher!

Now, I have to learn how to actually quilt on my machine!

I sewed around the edges of these jars, but I don't know what else to do. Suggestions are very welcome!

So, you know what I will be doing for awhile!

Happy Summer!
