Happy Mother's Day!

I got the best of all Mother's Day gifts this year... My younger son, Scot, graduated from Arizona State University with honors. (Yep, gold tassel and rope, and a special sash given to military graduates, he was quite colorful. We got to watch the ceremony on the computer.) He retired from the Air Force several years ago, and went to school.  He is now student teaching 7 or 8th grade science, and already has a job for next fall teaching 8th grade science.  I'm very proud of him!

I also got a traditional Mom's Day gift. They usually send cut flowers, but this year I got a hibiscus plant. I've always wanted one. Several of the buds are slightly colored already to bloom, but lots are still green.  Looks like the flowers will be orange or gold colored.  Thanks Kids. I'm very happy with it.

 
 
So I hope your Mother's Day is as wonderful as mine.
Hugs,
Terri

Snow on May 8th

It really isn't anything new here, but I took pictures to remember the event.  (Shout out to my Sis, who now lives in Florida... We got some and you didn't!)


You can't see it coming down like crazy - camera can't capture the big flakes in the driving wind, maybe you can see it against the tree trunk. It's starting to stick on roofs and grass. I heard snow thunder 3 time so far.
 
 
 
And now some other kind of insanity... I got it to a flimsy and ironed it!  Sharing it belatedly on
 
 
 
 
Happy Spring - LOL
 
Hugs,
Terri

Progress on H2H Qilt

X



I can't show the most recent pictures.  Microsoft updated my computer this week and now pictures won't download the same way.  Exasperating!  Not much \has changed in layout. I've done some sewing together of the blocks... some progress.
Showing this on Confessions of a Fabric Addict today.  See you there.

Hugs,
Terri

Anybody else get this message on e-mail?  I'm not doing it!  I may be a nonblogger soon, but I'm not doing it. Junk having to do with the computer is just getting to be too much trouble for me. I've enjoyed reading my old blogs from time to time.  Lots of good memories that I won't be able to read anymore after April 1.  Or is this an elaborate and nasty April Fools day prank?  They sure chose a bad day for a change over.  So if there is anything on my blog that you want to see, look now or be disappointed.

It's been a while

New fabric

The blue is more aqua and the dots are a copper metallic color and feel. I love the pink and yellow print. So cheery.

Happy Hump Day...

What I've been working on

Mostly I've been procrastinating, but I did make all 121 of these blocks.  (Working early on the H2H quilt for Happy Chemo.) Hands to Help Comfort Quilt Challenge starts on Sunday (tomorrow).


I'm calling it a "Wonky Wedge". I tried to use a limited pallet of blue, purple and green.
Below is the first 4 blocks sewn together (upper left). Blocks always look better after being pressed and sewn together, don't you think so?


Sew I have been using my green scraps...  This quilt is easy and uses your scraps, even strips work.

 
 Close ups are a few of my favorite prints.

Blocks are made from a 5" square of white (121 are a mix of two different prints of white on white and  some off white), then sew varying size and shape triangles onto each.  Somehow I made some bloopers that went the wrong way. I figured it is just another part of "wonky". 

We are supposed to get a snow storm starting this evening, but the weather people can't decide if  it will be 1" or 8".  We will see. We do have enough already. I'm tired of shoveling, and I only helped a couple of times.

Have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs

Squirrel quilt progress and one yellow butterfly

I love the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, but I haven't participated with much reliability.  For the month of February I've made one yellow butterfly... today.


I haven't much in the way of yellow scraps.


I've been making these wonky 5" squares in blues, greens and purples - mostly from scraps. I thought I'd set them as stars, but there aren't the right way points,, I made them like these. I do like them all pointing in the same direction.


I still have a bunch to add to the design wall. I'm thinking this will be a H2H quilt.

I'm still waiting for an address to send out the baby quilts.... no charge, but I can't just wish them there.

Hugs to my Sis in Florida.  Thanks for the Hope you provide with the Facebook updates... Today we had a plumber here to snake our sewer that backed up.  Messy business.  At least I can do laundry now.

Hugs to my quilty friends, too.  Thanks for stopping by to read my little blog.

Looks Like a Road Map

Where am I going?
 

Maybe another view will help you....



Here's the other side of the map.  I've got 4 - 3" outer "sky" colored borders cut and ready as soon as I pull off the paper.
Now how to quilt it?

Leaving the paper peeling until   TV time tonight.

Hugs,

New Fabric - New Outlook

It's been a looooong time since I bought anything, (fabric 2 years maybe) but there was this sale at Hancock's of Paducah ...(batiks for $4.99 and $5..99 per yard - full yards required).


 The camera didn't pick up the bits of pink and lavender in this piece.  It's mostly a tan and grey on a white background. It's a bit more pronounced in person.

I've been needing some lights - I want to make the Depression block and some other patterns that depend on light lights, and my stash is mostly bright saturated colors.
Happy Thursday,
Hugs

Squirrel Project

You know I've been working on some little airplanes for a baby quilt... well, I got a new pattern from Claudia Hasenbach .  She designs really great

I enjoyed making this one. 

We've got some -5 temps in the forecast for this week. Hope you all are keeping warm.

Hugs,
Terri

More Airplanes

This might be all the planes this boy baby quilt gets...

What I want to do is enclose that blue and white fabric on the ironing board in the foreground with planes... see if it turns out big enough. Paper is still on them, so there is that to remove, too.  Then how to quilt?  Sending this along to link up at Rainbow Scrap Challenge here.
 
Happy Weekend!
