Accomplishments - at long last

Seems like so long since I've had anything finished to blog about. It's terrible when your job, husband, kids, house, etc. intrude on your quilting time. sigh.

The first update is the finished project from the Weird and Ugly challenge from my Yahoo group.

Again, this was the fq I was sent to work with:

And this is what I made:

I had visions of a stained glass window. It was certainly interesting. I don't like to work with small pieces and the little squares finished at 1 inch and have four triangles in them. I'm happy with how it looks and am thinking it may be the center of something larger - but I'm not sure what the "something" will become.

I also did a few small things lately. A friend passed along a link for a bookkeeper - perfect for holding a Kindle. And since I have a Kindle, I had to make one.

The original had some applique but I decided to just embellish mine with a few buttons.

The pattern is a Moda BakeShop freebie that can be found here

Last year for my birthday I got some embroidered Sunbonnet Sue blocks off eBay. There's one for each month. I didn't really have an idea what I was going to do with them but they were too cute to pass up. Finally I decided to do a small wallhanging. I'd like to get a table top scroll stand to hang them from. I finished February and March. I added a bit of seed beads to each.

The February one has hearts quilted into the corners. I can't wait to work on the other twelve months.

It feels good to finally finish something.

Until next time, hugs and stitches. Jody
