What I am working on….and a BIRTHDAY!

I am a bit in between projects….

I finished up my Roll, Roll Cotton Ball Mystery quilt and it’s ready for the quilting machine.  I finished my UFO #6 and it’s on the quilt machine.


I want to start my Uptown Girl quilt….I want to start cutting up my shirts so they are all ready for when my new Scraps and Shirt Tails book comes.  I am eagerly waiting for Judy at Patchwork Times to pick a new number for the UFO Challenge.

Hopefully I will get this quilted this week so the UFO can actually be COMPLETELY finished.

Judy has a listing of LOTS more Design Walls.  You can check it out here.

At our house we are in the midst of birthday season.  Last week it was my oldest’s birthday….Today it’s my Kayla-Kay’s birthday.  She is 23.  If you’ve been around internet, you may have ran in to Kayla.  She is the artist behind the website, www.kddoodle.  She’s the blogger Kayla K’s Thrifty Ways.  She is a student teaching right now and she is a server at an area restaurant.  She is an accomplished knitter and quilter.   We are super proud of her.  If you remember, last week I thanked our older daughter Kelli for letting us try our parenting skills out on her.  Well….Kayla also needs to be thanked.  Kelli and Kayla are only one year and six days apart.  So Kayla was just as much a guinea pig as Kelli was….and so Kayla…thanks for being the wonderful girl you are and Happy Birthday.  I hope 23 is your best year yet!

  1. How do you like the Pfaff Hobby Grand on the frame? Right now I have that machine and machine quilt on it table top but I am thinking about getting the frame for it as well.

    The quilt looks very nice btw!

  2. It is GREAT to finally get them on the frame, dont you think? Or on “the Rack” as I refer to it…Looks like that quilt is going to be a beauty…
    I have that machine and old Inspira frame. I love it, infact, I bought a Viking Mega Quilter from a friend so that I could have one for pieceing, which I also love. It isn’t a “true” long arm, and there are limitations, but it gets the job done. It has served me well for 5 years now!

  3. I am really impressed with how much you got done in just one month. And both of them will be quilted soon!

    I had twins but I believe having children 1 year apart is more difficult. And yet, how nice that you appreciate your children and say so. What great parenting.
