A little change of pace today. I enjoyed this beautiful summer like day outside putting together a couple of scrap books. The pages have been done - just needed to get them in order and put them in books. A lovely quiet day filled with memories of good times.

Marlene's Memory Quilt

This quilt has been pieced and waiting to be quilted for far too long. The quilt is the product of a block exchange with friends in memory of Marlene Ball. Marlene was an avid quilter and an exceptional person. Finishing this quilt made me smile with memories of time spent together and also brought some tears.

I am happy that the quilt is finished. I will remember Marlene's beautiful smile when I look at it.

This Weekend

I have been working on Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street. I have all the parts done and will be working on putting it all together this weekend. Also I hope to load a top on the machine that has been ready to quilt for a very long time. I have to make a decision on how I want to quilt it, I may do some custom...or not.

Some pics of the mystery in progress.

Goal Accomplished

The Thimbleberries quilt is finished, just with a couple of hours to spare!

The quilting design doesn't show up much on the front so also included a picture of the back. Also a picture of the entire quilt that I finished earlier in Dec.

So today it will be taking down the Christmas decorations, cleaning and a little sewing. I'm going to try and tame my scraps and stash-they are taking over. Going to at least get started on that.

A couple of goals for this NewYear will be to work on a wool project. New adventure for me. I bought the BOW in wool from Primitive Gatherings last summer. It is neatly boxed up and waiting for me. I know I won't be doing a block a week!

I have a set of beautiful embroidered blocks that my dear friend Sylvia was working on. Just a few stitches to finish the embroidery and then I will set them in a quilt. I have given the design a lot of thought, just need to find the perfect fabric.

Of course the getting organized goal is always on my mind but I still need to work on that!

Happy NewYear!
