I have been diligently working on my piece for the All About Strings blog hop coming up the week of the 25th of this month. Just some of the strings I have been using.
In and around those projects I have been doing some embroidery for Easter. I got a great bunny embroidery pattern by Brenda at Song Bird Designs
I've tested him on a couple of mug rugs and have requests for a couple of placemats which I hope to get to in the next week or so.
We will be having a new arrival in the family this summer and I thought I'd give a Burp Cloth a try. My local quilt shop has monthly Kimberbell classes. I saw this little fella and had to have him.
My quilt guild had a baby shower for a local organization that supports unwed moms and families in need with very small children. I contributed these 5 quickie receiving blankets made using the Missouri Star Quilt tutorial with fabric donated by other members of the group.
Then I saw these adorable little bears on Kreative Kiwi Embroidery I just had to make a couple and then make them sleeping bags.
The shower was a great success. I play with a wonderfully generous group of ladies. They filled 10 cafeteria type tables with goods ranging from quilts, diapers, onseies, toys and games for kids 5 and under and on and on.
So just one more fun photo. Its of my girls who are feeling neglected of late. They have a bed in my sewing room but have now taken to napping in the living room with the dad where they get a little bit more attention than I have been showing them since the Machine arrived in December. Don't they look deprived. tee, hee
Well that brings me up to date excluding the upcoming hop. You'll just have to come back on the 25th to see those happenings. Hope to see you then.
