The sun is shining...

I am soooo bad at keeping up with this blog. Anyway... I'm still here and still sewing.

Good morning. The sun is finally shining again and the birds are singing. It is going to be a wonderful day. AJ will be arriving shortly. His Grampa has been out of cupcakes for a few days, so we need to get busy and make somemore for him.
I have been busy making three Anti-Gnat (formerly "Anti-Bug") Hats for a friend to give as Mother's Day gifts. I need to try to work on them today while AJ entertains himself.
DH's older son, Franky, is here from Fla to celebrate his Dad's 85th b'day with us on Mon.. We are going to have a small party at home. Just a meal and cake and ice cream. Certain members of this family NEED cake AND ice cream to celebrate a b'day...
I am including a photo of the last quilt I completed. This one is a scrappy Double Four Patch that I made for the Senior Center.
Take care and have a nice day...

Some Catching Up

Hi Everyone.
It is about time I do some catching up. I do believe spring is finally here to stay. The weather has been nice and warm and sunny. I'm still attempting to get the leaves in the back yard raked up and disposed of. That job is almost finished.
Here are a few of the projects I have finished since I last posted. First, there is the ironing board cover I made for myself (the blue one). I really like it. It came out really nice. A friend saw it and asked for one to go in her fish themed bathroom. Her's if the one with the fish. I got the pattern at . I like all of their patterns. Next is the barbeque (sp) style apron I made for our DIL for her birthday. That came out pretty and she really liked it. The last project is a Scrappy Log Cabin quilt that I am still working on. I have found one border for it. I want to get another border, then I need to find something for the binding and the backing. Soemday I will finish it.
I am working at JoAnn Fabrics this evening, so I need to get ready to go down there. Take care and have a nice evening.
