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.

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.

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.
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!

Whenever I sit down and watch my recorded shows...which is not often...I guess I'm ADD or ADHD, not sure which one it is..I just can't sit there. My mind does not shut off. So I do a hand project while watching/listening. I completed one last year, "over the river..." . This time I am doing "winter wonderland" by Crab-Apple Hill.
Here's the 1st block of many..

I received this kit many, many years ago from my sweet sister. Years got away from me and couldn't believe the fabric was dated 2009! Unbelievable quilt, but boy, was it way over my head. I set it aside....for years.. Looked at it every now and then, put it back. Did that quite a few times. Finally I got the courage to start it last weekend.
It is called Pacific Rim Quilt. It is using RJR fabrics, and the collection is by the wonderful Jinny Beyer. Pattern is by Debbie Beaves. It measures about 61x61"
As I was about almost done and things weren't quite laying flat and measuring up as they were supposed to be...I then realized I should have checked to see if there were any pattern corrections. Although I couldn't find any listed, there must be some somewhere because between my husband and I, we could not put this thing together as easy as it should have been.
It needs a good pressing, but I couldn't look at it any more. It was late, I was tired. So, I made the backing and did the binding...magic binding at that! And put it upstairs to be quilted.
On to the the next project now...

Here's a sneak peak at my library. It's not done yet, or cleaned, but I snapped a couple pictures.
These are the baskets that the "roadrunner rewards" will go in.. When the kids do good, they get a slip and at the end of every month we pick 2 kids per grade level and have a pizza party.

My weekend was spent shopping and binding...
Now that I'm 2 weeks back into work, I am getting my library all put back together. We have a lot of new things happening in my work space. We moved out the 33 computers and put them in classrooms, that were in the back of library, the "computer lab". We now have 30+ kindles for the kids to work on. We have couches & love seats, bean bags, tables, stools and all sorts of new seating arrangements for the kids to enjoy. I'll take pictures when it's finished.
Now I am in charge of "roadrunner rewards". (1 of my gazillion new hats). We give these out to kids when they do something good of any sort. We used to have this god-ugly red ruby, sparkling hat box, eesh! Not in my library..
This is what I came up with.
Then while waiting for the spa to heat up, I put the binding on my 'disappearing hourglass' quilt.

34 years ago, I got married.. Straight outa high school, my family thought I was nuts!
Still going strong!
Every single year, he buys me roses. 1 for each year we've been married. Has not missed a year yet. Even when we've been on vacation, I walk into a hotel room, and they are. Amazing.. This year is 34, 2 short of 3 dozen. He brought them home yesterday and then when I went in my sewing room...there were the 2 extra.
We had no real plans today..ended up looking at cars and came home with a new ride for me!
I have always had an SUV. 5 yrs ago we traded in my jeep Cherokee because it was on the edge of being a lemon. Always in the shop for electrical issues, and we got a Hyundai. It is a good little car, never had an issue with it, warranty is unbelievable, but it's not an SUV. So we traded Marks car in and got me my SUV back. Kept the Hyundai for Mark.
Happy anniversary honey! Here's to another 34+ years!
