It's been awhile

Where has the time gone?  I hope to get back to blogging more. 
I've got lots to show and news to share. 

Here are two fall tea towels I made for Thanksgiving a couple weeks ago. 
Happy stitching

More finishes to share

again my apologies for my lack of blogging.  spring is always a hectic time of year in our house hold.  Lots of celebrations in a short amount of time.

Mother's Day
Father's Day
Son's Birthday
Anniversary
Daugher's birthday
Jr High Graduations ceremonies
Year End Dance Recital
Visitors (oldest daughter was home)
Start of Gardening Season

See, it was a busy time.  

Now that school is finished, activities are winding down and garden established I have found a bit more time for sewing. 

Here are a few recently completed projects:

Notebook cover and pouch for a teacher gift

 Cupcake banner/bunting for my nephew's girl friend's booth at a Farmer's Market. 

A pillow for me,  just because

Nested Churndash table topper or wallhanging for a good friend.  
Lily always has to get in on the action. 

These spools of thread will go in my friend's new sewing studio.  (I am terribly jealous of her set up!)

I have a few new projects started.  Which I will share later.

Hope you are getting some stitching time in this summer.

Happy Stitching, 

Lee

A finish to share

This quilt was made for a young man as he finishes up 7 years of studying.  He, like this quilt made a few mistakes along the way, but we both got it done.  Congratulations Ryan!

Busy

Hello all,
What can I say I have been very busy the last couple of months.   Here's what I've been  up to: 

1 trip to Florida for spring break

3 dance competitions (2 out of town)

attended the Red Deer Quilt Show

Walk in the woods for Mother's Day

22nd Birthday celebration

Stitching day with my friend Kim from Chatterbox Quilts

Trip to NYC with a high school BFF

Stop over in my home town to visit family 

Grade 9 graduation festivities

Gardens to look after

Also included would be the everyday things which are boring like cooking, cleaning, laundry etc. 
I am also trying to get back on track with my fitness.  All these things take time. 

I have done some sewing in fits and spurts.  I actually have a finish to show you......next post.

Have you been keeping busy this spring.

Happy 
Stitching!
