More finished...

Finished these this past week.
This one is blurry, didn't realize it till now, and I can't take another picture because it's in the mail.

Then this one...It's just laying on the stairs... No real Kodak moment here..
Plain and simple houses

round&round.....

A thimble blossoms quilt by Camile Rosekelly. Measure well over 68x72 because I made it a lot bigger so I could use it as a blanket at Christmas time.

I have it just laid out here to take a picture. Can't wait for the holiday season to start so I can put it on the bed.

Special spot...

Did you ever put things away in that special spot, and then forget where it was? I did that at Christmas and totally forgot about it until someone asked me a name of a pattern. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks like 15 mins after that. I made a quilt for my daughter, hid it because I didn't want her to see it when she was here and remembered yesterday.

Even has a label...
Early Christmas present for her...

Star Surround....


This is the one that I put together in August 2013. 
It was a blog sew a long from happy quilting...Could never find the right backing...
It looks WAY better quilted and done...and washed...love it all crinkly.. Wasn't very excited with it before, probably why it sat for so long. Found a backing... Reminds me of the coca cola bear..

But matches perfect..then there's the binding..

Sewn on binding...looks wonderful!

B & N laundry...

I found, through a friend, the most amazing natural laundry room items in the world! They are all natural and chemical free..safe to use if anyone in your family has alergies of any kind. It's perfect for babies also. 
The little canister holds my "lemon " soap. Just 1 itty bitty scoop full does a full load, and if the load is extra dirty... Add another scoop full.. There are 3 different scents, with 1 being plain.. Love them all, but lemon is my fav. That little stain stick... OMG! It gets out everything I've tried. Get it wet, rub it on, and BAM! Has a piece of wool on bottom that acts like a scrubber also. The creator of these item has twins and she swears by them.
No more dryer sheets... The 100% wool dryer balls are the best. Throw them in your dryer, they fluff, get the wrinkles out, and now more dryer sheets. Does like 100 loads...when they start to unravel you know it's time to replace.  I was getting like oil spots on my sheets sometimes from them.(dryer sheets) really making me mad, because they were BRAND new sheets too!
Follow her on Instagram. bandnlaundry or bandnlaundry.com   
She is becoming quite popular these days. You will find her items in Ross depot stores  I think also. She's made it in Goodhousekeeping magazine, and has made it on a TV show also I heard. And best of all...... She is like 15 mins away from my house!

Sunrise...

Took this picture this week. I spotted it as I was running out the door to work. It stopped me in my tracks. 
I unlocked the back door and climbed on fountain and just stood there in awww.. Needless to say, I was a tad bit late for work. Amazing!
