Finish Along: Q4

With the flood in my sewing room among other things....

I certainly dropped the bomb on Q2 and Q3 Finish Along.

It's all okay!

We have a new baby, so life is certainly good.

And...I won 2 patterns from Q1 Finish Along.

Much incentive to finish the year out!

Here's a list of my Q4 Finish Along Goals:


1.  T-shirt Quilt(s)



2.  Cardinal Winter Quilt for Mom (christmas)


3.  Blue Quilt for Maxine (christmas)


4.  Three Little Words Cross stitch
I've got a long ways to go on this one!


5.  It takes a Village (ongoing)

I know, it's aggressive.  But I really need to push myself!

Peace to all,

Laura

OMG: October

So....I found another cool linky party.

They have monthly giveaways too!

One Monthly Goal.

Sweet and simple.

Here's my October goal:



To take this pile of t-shirts that my beautiful
niece Celeste dumped on me before
her move to Chicago in 2016 to make quilt.

I've sort of rummaged through them, organizing a bit
and it looks as if it may actually be
two quilt.
:)

Peace to all,
Laura

We have a baby!

Henry Michael 
was welcomed into this world on
September 6, 2017.







It's been a busy month!  We've been enjoying this precious gift.  

Peace to all,

Busy Summer

UGH!

I am such a slacker!  
Probably, in part, due to the fact that a pipe burst in June 
flooding my sewing room.

Most everything is still boxed up, since the repairs have not yet been completed!

However, in my make-shift living room/sewing room,
I've managed to complete two new baby quilts
for my daughter, Jessica who is 
expecting her first child, a baby boy, in September:








I've also completed some Stash Bee blocks:





And do.good stitches blocks:







Hoping to have my creative space back together before that new baby comes!

Peace to all,

Laura

June Bee Blocks

When I saw Rose's block at Stash Bee this month, 
I knew I had to make one!

I've seen this block around the net for awhile now, and I love it!

Lo & behold, the leader for this month in my 
Believe Circle at do.good stitches picked the same block!  
ha ha ha!  
At that point, I knew it was fate!

So...here is my block for Rose:





And here are the other two I made for Robin in other group:


Hive #7 (my hive): Rebecca asked for 
pink and yellow braided hearts:



What a fun month!!!

Peace to all~

Quilts in the Que

I have been busy...seriously busy!

Mostly trying to find a new job, preparing for interviews,
 planning a baby shower, spring cleaning, etc....


But I have some pseudo-finishes to share!

Sarah's Stars:


The top is complete and currently at my fabulous professional quilter.
My last niece is graduating next month...so this is the final graduation quilt!
Whoo Hoo!


Stash Bee 2017:




I finally got the top together for this one - I love how it turned out!
It's in hanging in my quilt room waiting to be put on the frame!
{still trying to come up with a name
for this quilt - please share any
ideas you might have}

Tic Tac Toe:



These blocks were created by the BELIEVE CIRCLE at
 do.good stitches on flicker and IG.

I love how this came together too!  Also hanging in my quilt room
waiting for some attention from me :)

I'll be drawing for the giveaway later today
and will post tomorrow!

Happy Mother's Day!

Peace to all,

Laura
