Good morning sweet Chickadee's
My mom used to say Monkey See Monkey Do when someone did something someone else was doing. Well I did just that. lol This has just been a cutting table for me for some time. When Lori over at http://beeinmybonnetco.blogspot.com/ showed us how she did her pressing/ ironing table I knew I had to do it. My creative room seems very small with my quilt machine in it. There is just not much room for the ironing board and I have been searching for a solution. So my sweet David unscrewed the top and we stabled batting first, then ironing material and last the sweet gingham from Flower Sugar 2013, you can find the fabric at http://www.donnaslavendernest.com/ I still use this as my cutting table but when I need to press I just have to remove the cutting mat. If you want to see how Lori did it you can visit her at http://beeinmybonnetco.blogspot.com/ Thank you so much Lori, this has made things a lot easier.
This is one of the Quilty Barns I did over the weekend. I think there is one ahead of this one, hopefully I will get to sew it this week. Well as you can see my corner stones should have been a darker lavender. But I loved the little purple flowers so much they clouded my judgement lol. I had not done a lavendery/purpley barn yet and I guess I was just determined. You know if you have not started your Quilty Barns it is never to late to start. You can visit http://beeinmybonnetco.blogspot.com/ to get started.
A few weeks ago I got these really cute patriot kids in the mail. I rarely win anything so when Marlynne over at http://mcreatesdaily.blogspot.com/ emailed me and told me I was the winner, I was over the moon with excitement and could not wait to get them in the mail. Thank you so much Marlynne for these cute kids. Every time I display them I will think of you. If you have not visited Marlynne at http://mcreatesdaily.blogspot.com/ you really should, she is a very talented lady.
I have been piecing and quilting for a couple of ladies in town and that has been keeping me busy and I just can not believe August is half over.
Hope you have a wonderful day and get to create.
