I have been shopping for a dress for my son's wedding on July 28th. I am glad to report I found one on Saturday and found the shoes on Sunday! Jeff has his new suit being altered and we'll pick it up this coming Saturday. No photo of the dress until after the wedding.
My children from Texas and California are getting ready to head home for their youngest siblings wedding. We will have a wonderful time. I am so excited!!
My friend & I have become part of the Soldier's Angles sewing team for the Patriot Pillowcase Project. These pillowcases are sent to a combat support hospital and given to every injured soldier. I asked our local quilt guild if they would like to participate too, and have been rewarded with 10 pillowcases so far!!
|These 6 were made by Connie|
|This one was made by Nancy|
|I made these 12 pillowcases|
|These 3 were made by a guild member|
As many of you know, I have Thursday Sew Day at my studio. Barb Richards (Momma Barb) and Gladys Ashenfelter from http://www.gladysgab.blogspot.com/ have been coming every week to get some of their projects done. Gladys drives almost 2 hours to spend time with me and Momma Barb and whoever else comes to sew. Gladys & Momma Barb took the Zippy Zippy Zig Zag Quilt class from me a few weeks ago. Gladys put the final border on her quilt this week.
Gladys found this wild fabric for the back of this quilt. Can you tell where she pieced it?
Momma Barb is still working on her quilt. She decided she wanted it BIGGER!
I started another quilt project! I know, I know I don't need another UFO, but I can blame Mrs. Dillydally (http://www.dilly-dallydays.blogspot.com/) for this. Mrs. Dillydally posted this quilt on her blog and I knew I would have to make it too. My friend Barb Bond really liked this quilt. I had it cut out and ready to piece.
