Busy, Happy Life!


I'm slowly hand stitching this binding for my cheddar bow tie quilt. I have two additional quilts that need binding when I'm done with this one. I don't know how my binding pile got so backed up!

And I'm still hand quilting this one - this is my current favorite project - so relaxing!

These 9 patch blocks are still coming together here and there.

A small group I'm in has decided to swap scrappy 9 patches with the darks aligned as seen above.  So these are now in progress, too. 

We had a fun guild meeting this week - celebrating the guild's 37th birthday. I got to know some new members who I'm sure will become friends.

Last night we went to the Auburn gymnastics meet again Arkansas. We are so lucky to have Suni Lee, Olympic All Around gold medalist here at Auburn for another year. This is Suni Lee above on balance beam. She is so much fun to watch. 

This is one of the home projects we've had going on. I've been looking for matching twin headboards for Sadie's room. I found these brass ones at our local Habitat for Humanity store and grabbed them. Once we added the bed frames (also from the Habitat store) and a piece of plywood for a base, we were all set. Hubby and I set them up and threw this quilt on Sadie's bed for now. The quilt was made by my grandmother, Sadie's great great grandmother.  Eventually I'll put white bedspreads on both of them and fold a quilt at the foot of the bed. 

We also had an electrician here at the house this week. He added LOTS of new lights in my sewing room! It's so bright now! The electrician and I became buddies - I'm going to teach his wife how to use her sewing machine.

We also had a renovation company come to look at our pantry - it desperately needs a remodel to maximize the storage. Can't wait to have that done! 

In other sewing news, I am really feeling confident in using the new Bernina embroidery software that I purchased. I monogrammed a little top for Sadie this week. AND I embroidered a label for a quilt. I'm so glad I've learned to do this. Hubby wants me to put his name on his golf bag, so that will happen in the near future. 

And that's the update for now. Some neighbors have invited us over for dinner tonight, so that will be fun. And we have plans to meet other friends for dinner later this week. We stay so busy and we love it!
