House block

House block with wool trim
I thought I would enjoy making these houses with this sew along but these house aren't my thing.  I made this one from a some shirts that were gifted to me from Dorothy Young, thank you Dorothy!  I think this block will have to be made into a doll quilt and I'll move onto my next project or heck even finish one in process!   I'm linking this up over at   WIP Wednesday.         Happy Sewing, Kim

She can fly!

Is there anything more fun than playing with your grandchild?  I don't think so!
I brought this outfit, got her all dressed, then did her hair ( it HAD to be just like the girl on the package) then made her "fly" around the room.  These are pictures of her looking at herself in the mirror flying like a "Fairy Princess".    I had the time of my life with my favorite three year old!

Sewing with Bonnie Hunter

Bonnie Hunter

Debby , Bonnie and Kim at "Cathedral Star" workshop joyfully  taught by Bonnie.

I'm in awe of Bonnie Hunter's ability to travel, teach with such enthusiasm, cheer us all on,
look at all our quilts that we brought for show and tell, blog about it all, and still end the day with "now I get to go sew", she couldn't wait to relax and sew in her quiet hotel room.  This must be how she recharges her batteries to do it all again.  Thank You Bonnie it sure was fun!
