Aweigh goes the scale!

Tonight I promised to not step on the scale for a month. OUCH!
This one's gonna be tough.
I hope when I get back on, I don't look like the piggie that's on this one!

Another Quilt!

Here's a photo of a quilt that was given to me last week.  My friend Val picked it up somewhere and gave it to me!  It needs a little mending but nothing I can't do. As long as I take the time to do it! It's all polyesters and HAS to be from the 70's or late 60's .  I love the paisleys in it.

Puzzle Quilt for the Timothy School

I have been a busy little beaver lately!

Here's a sneak preview of the quilt I am working on for the annual fundraiser for the Timothy School in Wayne, Pa.

I am going to border it with 4 colors, like the Autism Puzzle Piece symbol.  Red, blue, yellow, and green.

Then it's off to Kristina @ http://www.froggybottomquilting.blogspot.com/ where she'll work her magic!

Then it's off to the big silent auction!

Hopefully it will bring in lots of $$!

My girlfriend in Colorado is opening a quilt store soon - I am soooo excited for her and my other dear friend, who get's to work there.  I am jealous! There's only a few things I'd rather do than that!

Her store is called Ladybugz Quilt Company because she loves ladybugs.

So today, I made her a nice little penny wool rug w/ a ladybug.
I hope to make a pattern soon and when I do, I'll list it on Etsy!
