i need to thank Mr. Martin at burkholders for the wonderful donation of 125 yards of fabric to be use in team jimmy. this will back lots of quilts, now i really have to start quilting. this is a quilters x-mas morning.
i saw this pattern on a blog, and fell in love with it . it goes together fast so i will be doing more of it. winter seems to be here. now for some snow. i have to go back to my quilt cabin and sew now.
this little beauty happened after the one below. i love this.
i like this but enough to use as a gift. this was leftover blocks 3 quilts back, you know how you have maybe7 or 8 blocks left so you add more to use them up then you have more. now i have 2 left and they are going on the back.
also i can't forget team jimmy so two more got added.
the only problem is i want to make cookies this week instead of sewing.
i wanted to make a block to send to the selvage blogs friend. of course girls just want to have have and pumpkin pie.
while in intercourse we stopped at Gina's shop.
it's been a year since i retired from burkholder's and i have loved every minute of it. Gina was a good boss .she gave me lots of freedom to do thing's in the shop that wanted to try. big thanks to Gina and Nancy. i miss you girls lots. i feel that the only thing that i did this week is run around ,Tues. and weds i worked on a top sewing and riping over and over. I'mhopeing for a better week coming up.what has every one been working on?

OK that's some sewing this summer.
i had a great time using patterns I've seen in books and mag. there are quilts done from Kathy Holland, Bonnie hunter,jelly roll books Betsy Ross. As i was doing them i really didn't look at them more so the # i had done so seeing them lay out was so neat. I'm half way there . I know i can get them done. I guess i better start thinking what to work on next.
Wow what a great group of mag . i love love love scrappy quilts. it's nice that so many mag. are thinkingtowards using your own stash as well as new fabric's. i have already started a quilt from them. This week is the seltzer sisters retreat. it was along wait in between. so i have been trying to play catch up on team jimmy. as of now i have 34 quilted quilts done, and5 tops ready 15 cut and ready to sew. i hope to have 5 more tops done by Monday.
