The miracle of technology

Not posting too much but I have been reading and trying to comment.
Otherwise I have been busy planning a baby shower for my first grandson due to arrive in 10 weeks.
With the power of technology we are able to now see 3d pictures inside the womb.
A miracle indeed.

Baby bibs and a Giveaway

I have not made much in the quilting arena but I have been working on some baby things for my new grandson due in September.
I found a link on Pinterest for these monster bibs and they have been such fun to make. Other than that I have not made much more yet. Basically very tired when I get home.
I have been doing some reading . A few months ago I purchased this wonderful book at Green http://www.greenfairyquiltsblog.comFairy  Quilts and on my lunch break I have been reading it page per page so that when I make another quilt I will not have to break my head trying to come up with a quilting design because Judi has planned it all.
Judi and Clint have offered a generous giveaway to one of my lucky readers.
You get to choose three charm packs.
Follow the raffle copter rules and good luck to everyone. Head on over to Green Fairy quilts and show then some love.

A new quilt for my grand daughter

With my daughter having a baby come September, I am on a time crunch to get all my nieces and grand daughter birthday and Christmas gifts done early so I can help with her baby and plan a baby shower all before school starts again in August!
I had started a scrappy trip around the world months ago so I just put it together, appliqued some bears and called it done!
One birthday gift ready to be wrapped!
Any one else tasked with making gifts early this year?

Making the most of what I have

Since I joined fabriholic anonymous I am still making the most of what I have and not purchasing any new fabrics.
A close friend is having a home built and she wants a set of towels for her kitchen so I am making her a dozen. One for each month.
Since I have been decorating kitchen towels for years now, I went through my stash of towels and re-modified the ones that were not wide enough.
One year I was totally out of towels and I asked my daughter to shop around for me since she lived in a bigger city and all she was able to find at the time were some Target valentine towels.
Because they were not wide enough for my stove or anyone else's I just stuck them in a drawer.
In one of the pictures you will see the small pink Target towel versus my redone version.
I stitched up February 1st so now I just have 11 to go but they are all redone with new borders so it is just  a matter of adding the embroidery.
The design I used I believe came from embroidery library.

Midnight at the Oasis Part 3

Finally! I have the middle border on. I did not like the border that came with the pattern so I designed my own using the GO cutter. These borders literally took me months since I needle turned each one.
Now to part 4.

Handmade Challenge

I make handmade gifts every year so this year I decided to sign up for the challenge at SewCalGal
My first gift of the year is this jewelry set for my granddaughter who turns 9 in October. Because I am always pressed for time I make all my gifts early.
Also yesterday was my 25th wedding anniversary and hubby and I are going to celebrate in Alaska in June so I will not have a lot of summer time left over to make my gifts.
I am so excited about this trip. It is so well deserved. The last time we took a big trip was our honeymoon.
Tutorial for bracelet is here
