1st finish in 2014

The Dresden plate top is now finished I used the rest of the jellyroll in the border to use it up then tried free motion quilting on my sewing machine and not fond of it on large pieces my stitching was small and the tension on the back was not right as I couldn't move the quilt sandwich around very good  think I'll keep to the small projects to quilt on the sewing machine.

I ordered some fabric for a new project with pear blocks, I really enjoyed making the strawberries so will make the pears and I found a cherry block too, so 2 new projects on the to do list

Autumn's quilt is now a top

The last block of was released today and I have it done and the top assembled I think she is really going to like this one. Must say there were a few challenging blocks but I muddled through them. Now to make a backing
 My son (navy) was deployed on a 8 month tour and his daughter who just turned 1 in Nov. is going to miss her daddy he made up some video for her so she can see him this photo just chocks me up so cute.

A New Year 2014

Another new yr. Shawn (Navy son) left on a 8 month deployment he has been transferred to the HMC Regina, was on the HMC Vancouver on his last deployment. He came home before Christmas with Maddy(gd) for a week.

Christmas was really quiet nobody was coming home so it was just Randy and I, then his mom was not doing well and they called all the family she lives in Sask. and the temp was -42 glad I stayed home watched movies on  Netflix girly ones that Randy wouldn't be interested in. New Years eve well I was in bed before it arrived.
On the quilting front I am caught up with Linda's BOW 1 more to go and it will be released on Sun.

 I think Autumn will like it she will get it for her bd in May.
Was playing around with a jellyroll and decided to make Dresden plates got 8 made and another 4 to do.

My Christmas cactus was so full of blooms this year guess re potting it makes a big difference
