Quilt Time

I hope everyone is enjoying fall. I love the smell of the air and the wonderful times of football, bonfires and lots of fun. The other day the dj's on my fav radio station were trying to explain the phrase"It smells like fall" and just what that smell is. I have to admit it made me stop to think what fall smells like to me. I think of crisp air, very clean smelling with a scent of bonfire and a bit of dampness. What does it smell like to you?

I have been so busy that I apologize I have not been able to keep you all updated. There will be lots of posts coming showing you what I have been working on. Here is a small quilted wall hanging that is in progress and will go on the chocolate wall in the bedroom that my sweetie painted not too long ago. (Yep he's still painting and it's looking good around here :)

I want to do accents of aquas and greens with the chocolate color. This was quite by accident that it became wall  I meant this quilt to make it to my etsy shop, but my sweetie saw it and wanted to hang it above the bed. How could I say no? To finish it off, I will make the back of the quilt a sold block of blue and a solid block of lime green with a break of the white in between them and trim it in the lime green.  Pics to follow in a few days.

Here is another closeup. I am loving the solid colors with the abstract fabric for the center block against the pure white sashing.

Don't forget to let me know what fall smells like for you. I leave you with a pic of sweet Buddy enjoying his nap in the sun (sorry it's a bit blurry but I had to take it thru the window so I wouldn't wake him spoiled)
 Oh and that reminds me that I must change my banner to fall now.........

Mary Janes

My camera is back and it works like a charm again.  Canon was so wonderful. They fixed it for free, (I know I already told you that several times, but I still can't believe it) and I had it back in a week. They even buffed out some of my scuffs from using it over the years.

My honey was busy painting some more today, the living room is now a wonderful yellow gold color, and I was busy finishing the idea that has been in my head for quite some time........................................................

 The new style of baby shoes are here!  Mary Janes meet everybody, everybody meet the Mary Janes.

I have been revising and reworking them for a little while now until I was happy with the final design. I have always loved the mary jane style on little girls. Super Sweet!  Then add some great fabrics for the lining and bow and instantly it becomes new again. And some of the fabrics are very limited, so that style will be a one of a kind. These will be up on Etsy today.

I'm super excited to see how these change and evolve as I change the fabrics.  Now I'm off to enjoy my Sunday, it's a beautiful sunny, hot day here and I see some swimming in my future :)

For My Furry Kids

Do you also watch the Saturday morning shows that do great home makeovers on a budget?  My sweetie is hooked on them, and I enjoy watching them with him. A few months ago one of the shows lead him to paint our kitchen apple green. I absolutely love it!  So cheery. He picked the color and it turned out so great. Well last Saturday had the same effect for the bedroom. One of the shows had chose a dark chocolate brown and painted one wall with it, and left the other 3 walls the off white color they originally were. It was stunning! He got a whim on Sunday afternoon about 4:30 to paint the bedroom wall the same color. I was at a quilt show loving all the beautiful handiwork of some very talented people, and he called me to have us meet at Lowe's to pick a color. We chose a yummy chocolate brown that makes me want some chocolate every time I see it.He painted it in 4 hours and it turned out just as stunning as the show. So now I have the bug to keep going and make new pillow covers, a duvet cover, curtains, shades and of course a new dog bed and cat pillow. I know exactly what I want for everything in the bedroom, I'm thinking shades of blue and aqua with the chocolate brown.

I couldn't decide what I wanted for the furry kids pillows. They will mainly be in the living room (which is also getting a wall painted-he's thinking a medium golden yellow). I knew I would find just the perfect print and I went shopping today. Only made it to one store. I fell in love and can't wait to make the pillows.
Whimsical Kitties! :)

These were just such fun that I couldn't resist! I think they will make sun fun pillows for the kids, don't you? I will show you the finished items real soon....but for now can't you see my fuzzy dog sprawled out over the fun She loves cats, she thinks they are her pets too :)  There's never too much cuteness is there??

Weekend Fun

So I was telling you all how much I was in love with the new banner pic. I found this great pincushion by Anna Maria Horner last week and knew exactly the colors I wanted to use. Yep, pink and yellow :)  You all have to make one, they are so stinkin' cute. You can find the free pattern here.
Cute huh? :)

Ohhhh, what will these lovelies become????

Whats on the needles???? Hmmmmm.....

What is going on here???  I can't wait to see, can you???? Stay tuned for more.

Oh and my camera is going to have a good outcome!  I took it to the camera store this past weekend to have them tell me how much it would cost to fix. They said that Canon was taking care of this problem for free.  FREE!!!  My camera is not new by any  I just had to call the 800# and set it up with them.  My shipping label will be in my email box in the next 24-48 hrs. Yep, they are picking that up too :)  For now I am using my dear BF's camera I got him for Xmas.  I can't believe it, and I should have it back in 5-7 business days....yippee!!  Pictures will be flowing when I get it back.

Well time for some snuggle time with my sweet dog then off to bed. Have a super nite!
