Busy and Productive!

My energy level was back up yesterday. The TV was tuned to FOOTBALL all day! And while watching, I sewed ALL DAY!

I made the finished needlepoint into a pillow. I love to bind quilts with black and white striped binding. So I decided the pillow needed some black and white striped cording - LOVE!

The back of the pillow is a fun Kaffe Fassett print - of course!

Then I pulled out my Allietare project. Yes, I had a bit of help - Mickey insisted on being in my lap...

I made of few of these and then made lots of parts and pieces so I can make more blocks. Bonnie Hunter's pattern called for gold - but I switched it to mint green - I had some mint scraps leftover from the wedding quilt and the bridesmaid quilts - and I like the mint with the orange and navy.

I also did some hand quilting on my Lollypop Trees quilt. WHEW!

I stayed up way too late watching football, so this morning I'm a bit sleepy. I'm going to have a slow start....


  1. So glad you're feeling better. Lovely pillow.

  2. What a great pillow finish! I like the green on your Alletaire.

  3. The pillow is great!!!! I'm a big fan of adding b/w to my quilts too. Hope you had a good holiday weekend.
