Yard Work, Sewing and a Journal Cover

I have been helping DH with some heavy yard work over the past few days, but I have finally gotten the borders sewn onto the lap quilt. I will try to get a photo or two the next bright sunny day we have.

I worked on this little journal cover on and off over the past week or so. I just finished adding the 2009 on the cover. I scanned this, that’s why it is so closely cropped.





















It looks kind of Christmasy, but when I went looking through my stash I saw that red wool and had no idea why I bought it so I thought what the heck might as well use it for this.

A Look See

Okay, I still don’t have the borders on this, but here is a peek at the lap quilt top. The colors are more vibrant than they look in this photo.
















I was in need of a new eyeglasses holder and made this last week. Nothing fancy but it is sturdier than the old one, which was really quite floppy.

I'm Here

Once again more time has passed since my last posting than I would like. I have worked on and off on the lap quilt and have the top minus the borders sewn together. No photo yet.

I hope everyone had a lovely Mother’s Day (those of us who celebrate at this time). DS came for a visit. It was nice to see him. Was planning to grill out, turned the gas on to preheat and when I went back to put the steaks on no heat. OUT of gas!! So cooking was moved indoors. Everything turned out fine.

Hope to have something to show soon. Take care everyone.
