My daughter in law finished her quilt.

Ali started this quilt a few months ago and last night she quilted it on my quilting machine all by herself๐Ÿ’ฅ. I hope this is the beginning of a lifelong hobby that will give us lots of times together.

How cute is that face?  She's giving the quilt to her friend this weekend.

Repurposed shutter project

I picked up a few Windows and shutters a while back and have been letting them season outside until now.  I happened to like this old shutter because of the half moon which made it seem like it belonged on an outhouse.  
I sanded it to this:
Then I painted it yesterday when I was home alone. I used black spray paint which made it easy and fast.
Today I decorated it for use in the little sewing room Kenny and I are painting this summer.  
It's ready for seasonal wreaths and projects I'm working on or contemplating.  I can't wait to see it on the wall soon.  ๐Ÿ˜€

Embroidered quilt almost done๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ

I started this quilt in a class a few years ago at Pieceful Quilting when they had a store in Calverton and tonight I finally put it together.  Debating whether or not to put a border all around it to make it larger.  It really is lovely and would make a nice coverlet to put on a bed with a white bedspread.  
I had a good time playing with colors and fabrics in this quilt. 

Love the pretty designs and am happy I put this together tonight.  I was feeling crabby this afternoon so took to the sewing room in the attic to work it off. ๐Ÿ˜€
