Night Night Sweet Plants...

No comments:
Well,,, all the garden decorations are put away for the Winter and  I pruned up the last few lavender plants, and my peonies... and then put mulch around them..
My hubby dearest pruned my roses and mulched them... SO that is it until Spring 2020...
We didn't get all of the bulbs and rhizomes out and transplanted to their new location,,, but that can be done in the Spring when the ground warms up. The large majority of blubs and rhizomes were transplanted early September...
Soooo,, after all that hard work..heeheehee.. I deserve this!
Beer and cookies... I am sure these fall into a food group!? hahaha!

 

The Quilt and another Pillowcase are finished...

No comments:
Whoot Whoot! I finished up the quilt and another pillowcase...
 what a fun color combination.....
 I even stitched on a YoYo at each corner....
 The pink pillowcase just needs to be ironed.....
I am having fun digging through my stash of fabrics to make these pillowcases.
 
I still have 1 left on my sewing table to be stitched up... then I will move on to a Christmas lap quilt that I started 2 years ago!  
Who knows,,, maybe I will have it finished up before Christmas this year!

Yeppers,, I am still hiding out in my sewing room...
It snowed again yesterday so...sew, I did some more sewing..
 I made 3 of the 5 pillow cases...
 now I need to iron them...
 ok,,, ironed and put aside for gifts...
 then I ironed the strip quilt, binding and backing.. now to assemble...
 I luv the fun perky colors...
 last I stitched up a child's apron...
 light weight seersucker, so I backed the fabric for durability.
I luv seersucker.. I had this in my fabric stash for a long time...
Well now to stitch up the last 2 pillow cases and the quilt..
 
 Happy Snow day....

My Sewing room is where I hide when it's cold Outside!

No comments:
Yeppers! I spend a lot more time in my sewing room when it is cold outside...
 I was playing around with fusible webbing to attach fabric to glitter felt and I also used a glue stick to glue some fabric to card stock..
 I spotted this idea on a YouTube video... the one on the video was of 4 pumpkins,, I just tested the pattern with 2 pumpkins. Oh,, and yes I need to re-iron it.. that will be tomorrow's project! Heehee!
 I cut a bunch of small strips and made a table topper. I have so many,, but I enjoy making them.
 Then I made a 44x64" quilt out of the green Maryjane fabric by Moda...
Now to iron it and then hit the fabric store to find the perfect backing and batting.. I already cut the strips for the binding....
 Oh, and here are my "Testers" to give me their approval...
Ginger really likes it and can hardly wait for it to be finished!!!

Happy Snowtember!

No comments:
Yep,,, Happy Snowtember... the 1st snow in September since 1926..
 
I thought the weather peeps were kidding when they said we might get a bit of snow,, a bit?? day 2 and it's still dropping big fluffy snow flaks!
 
It started early yesterday morning,, and kept coming .. woke up this morning to a blanket of white.. and now here it is, mid day and it's snowing..
I am thinking a need some hot Tea or.. better yet, Irish Coffee!
 Saturday morning...
 and afternoon...
 and night....
 Then on Sunday I woke to this...
 White Fall wonderland...
 my poor roses...
 
I cut a hand full, shake off the snow and brought them indoor..
 
I just didn't believe the weather peeps that it might snow,, that will teach me!
Happy Snowtember!
