Finished friday/next friday

 Hello All.   Well it's late in the day but I did make it. I did not realise how much went on in this house. I'm busier than I thought. I appreciate those that left a comment.

I was only able to finish a few of the hand towels, first thing hubby said was, am I allowed to use these? 😊 whole point to keep him from using them for rags. We were using too many paper towels just to dry hands. 

                             This is the smallest, but still big enough to dry hands,17" x 8".

The basket is not exactly what I wanted. It's missing something.   I'll figure it out.

                            This is not what I had in mind for part of next week post, how ever it has to be done.  I was looking for double sided tape for the ribbon.  As you can see the cabinet is a mess.                   

But that's not all of it


This all has to go back in.

I finished piecing this yesterday.  Will finish by Friday.
It is a Project Linus Quilt.

I want to have this pieced too.

This ended up being later than I thought. Kentucky been having some  major stormed today. Electricity has went out twice. We personally are doing ok.  But there is a lot of trees and light poles down.

Have a blessed week,

Next Friday finish

                                                                          Morning all,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              
 I know that is a horrible title but it was all I could think of  and still get this out today.  Maybe you could help think of a more appropriate name. always glad for suggestions. I will be posting every Friday, a project or two that I want finished the by the next Friday.  I will be adding a link for anyone that may want to join in. It will take me a couple of days to figure out how to do that.  Will post that next Friday too.
Today I'm posting the project to be completed by next Friday.  These are the fabrics I have picked out for binding, that's not to say I won't pull a couple more.  Now don't judge until next Friday.                                                                                                         


This little basket sets on my counter and matches nothing.   But it is the exact size I need.  It's a yard sale find, now I just can not wait to to get started.
Hope you come back next Friday 
for the finish.

I only have one more line of quilting to finish my part of this quilt. 
I'll introduce you to Vanessa next week, she has been adopted into the family.
This is her quilt, So she will have a finish as well. 


Till we meet again.

See You Latter Alligator

 Morning Everyone,

I must apologize,  It has been so long since I  have been on the computer I have forgotten how to

do anything. I don't have a clue where the fancy print came from. It will just have to work.  Gonna try and download the pictures before it gets to late in the evening.  And the frustration sets in. Here goes. 

I'm not giving up, tomorrow I will try again.                   

Well I guess you see that went bust.  I can't even figure out how to get the List for the other blogs for you.

Please go back to the last blog you came from and enjoy the rest of the hop. 

So sorry.

After while crocodile.

Showing my wings, maybe not?

Morning All,

As I was writing my title for this hop I found a big blunder.   But first these are the fabric 
scraps I picked out.  Love my scraps.

I haven't made any thing for my home for about three or four years.  While I was originally going to make a baby quilt with these appliques , but I had to switch to these kitchen hand towels because of shoulder pain.
It seem I may have torn my rotator cup,  I have been referred to an orthopedic surgeon on the 25th of this month. While I can't handle using the cutter and can use the scissors.  Enough of that.  

I'm cutting cost at home and we use way too many paper towels,  So I'm using white hand towels 
from when I closed my shop ( hair and tanning salon) for just drying hands in kitchen.  Hubby hasn't caught on to that part yet.  so  there are some stains.  The bright colors pull your eyes away from those and covers a few.

These are totally scrapy made and I have nine more to go at this time,  who knows for sure.  
The top one is almost finished  I have to embroider stilts legs and eyes.  
I will share as I finish them this summer

Oh yes the blunder out of all the birds only one had wings.  back  to the drawing board. 8-)

Thanks to Carol at For heading up this cute hop.
be sure to visit the participating ladies.

Where Flowers Bloom/ Second edit

Thank you Carla for hosting this hop.

Flowers can bloom in the strangest places.
For instance.

Or even better yet

Ok right off the bat I have had to edit my hop day post.  I have now been bitten by the blogger bug.  UGH!
I will have to reply on my blog to all your much appreciated comments.  I apologize for the inconvenience.

I need to add Amy's BOM link, some have asked where it was.

On to the original post.

I decided to finish a couple of UFO blocks and design my own small quilt.
Well that didn't exactly happen.  But close. 
The blocks turned out pretty good and are from a BOM  I was in a couple of years ago.

This is the biggest mistake in the block below,  I did not have a pattern and just used a block I found on line  I can't believe I did notice.  It is almost 1/4 inch larger than the others.  Was suppose to be a 12 inch block, still haven't figured out what I did wrong.  You can see I tried to trim it.
and it is still to large and lost its points.

And as you can see the HST boarders is way off too.  Instead of trying to halve way fix it, I have decided to replace the block and and remake the  boarders.

When I rework this , I'll put a darker lavender binding on it.  I think it will be cute when finished.  So I'm going to take a break from it for a couple days and work on some Christmas projects.

I'm really into my plushies right now.  Trying to stay away from stress and deadlines.
And these keep me happily sewing in between quilts. I don't want to get out of the habit of finishing projects.

Don't forget to visit every one in today's hop. 

Hoping I put a smile on your face today.
Be sure to visit the others on this hop for your flower fix.
