So happy to be here to share with you all this week... I want to start out with happy wishes to all my Mom readers...
I am linking this post to my Canadian bloggy friend Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching HERE <<<
PLEASE take a look at her awesome blocks she is constructing presently and showing off progress on her blog today :) I really am enjoying watching this project come to life!!!
I have an updated pic of my grandkids to share on this day also!!!!
Here is Kaydence at 11 months old... her mother is in the background too :)
Aren't they both just beauties!!!?? She is an awesome mom and DIL also!
Kaydence turns 1 year old on the last day of May !!!! She lives in Tennessee where we are all from... so I doubt I will be seeing her before she turns one... but I love finding shots of her!!! lol
And here is a cool shot I found from March 2016 of CJ with his dad... my oldest son DL :D
And here he is playing with the little wagon in our Florida room :) xxoo
As for me??!!! I have been sooo busy!
First some update shots of Brandi's Starlight ~ Starbright Quilt I am working on in my PVC frame :) Last week I was almost 1/2 way through the 4th block of 9 on this quilt...
Today I took this shot...
Here is the whole framed up part for you to see on this 4th block progress...
These blocks are each 28" so it is hard to get bored or tired of this quilting... if you love hand quilting... and taking time to share pics with you helps me chart my progress too! Halfway through the 5th block will be halfway... I am anxious to see that come about sooner than later! :)
So what has been keeping me away from quilting on Starlight ~ Starbright??
First I cut and shared my starting progress on a flying geese border for this quilt center to get adorned with...
I must say I love the end wall hanging for our living room though!!!
And this flimsy will be the first to adorn my newly finished Hinterberg Hand Quilting Frame my honey & I finished this week!!!!
Last week I shared the frame shots while it was being made... but this week I am sharing it adorned with the flimsy above!!!
First though... I want to share the quilting frame in place... it is 10 feet long and that can be a no go for some quilters as space is an issue for something this long... but check it out!!!
Here you can see our living room... I am standing in the dining room/kitchen area to get this shot...
I also marked the center of the fabric "leaders" on each pole with a permanent marker to mark the centerpoint... you use this to mount everything and not have it cattiwaumpus on there! lol
I do want to give a HUGE SHOUT OUT in this post to my friend Wendy! Find her blog here where she is currently showing her BOM for May.. a very cool block... including directions for assembly of this "Puss in the corner" block! >>>>> HERE <<<<<<
You see this frame wouldn't have been on my radar and I would have still been using a hoop only for these bigger quilts had it not been for her encouragement and the way she is soooo versatile with her frame too! She has a Hinterberg frame built from a kit like mine is... and the company just recently had some kits made up for sale... I got this one just about 6 weeks ago and look at me now!
Wendy has encouraged me and my honey along in this process and shared pics and info about her frame and how she uses it best with all she has learned over the years... I am blessed to call her my friend for sure!!!
And before I let you go... check out what my daughter found last week at a neighborhood yard sale!!!!
But check out Daisy now next to that doxie foot stool!
Enough pondering with you for today I think.. Have a blessed Mother's Day wherever you are and remember no matter what...
