I had a nice little get away time...
mid-week I took some time off and went to Livermore
to help my son and DDIL with the baby while they
finished up school.
(him, the credential program and her, teaching/finals)
So that meant a perfect opportunity for grandma and baby bonding!
We did manage a little outing...
to the Farmer's Market one evening...
with a little side trip to the LQS!
Here is Melissa from In Between Stitches and us! The baby loved all
the eye candy in the store. Melissa just became an Aunt last week!
(please don't make fun of my clothes... I obviously need to learn to pack more
options to wear when I will be holding a baby that spits up... I think she got me every time)!
There were several of us at BOM Rehab!
It was good to see you there! And if you weren't there...
feel free to join us... no Doctor's orders are necessary!
Celine at Esprit Patch was busy working on her embroidery. I love the
"Success is not to succeed but to try".
Good words to remember!
Carol from Carol's Crafty Creations was back in the Rehab and
it looks like she got a couple of things accomplished!
She inspired me with her Henrietta Whiskers blocks that she was working on!
This is Anne from Bunny Hill... I found this picture from Market somewhere...
do you see the new block of the month behind her? umhmm, she is at it again!
Cheryl at Dots To You made another block in her Designer Mystery BOM!
(note to self: get your hands on as much of that fabric as you can)
Debbie at Ti's the Season blog made another block for her Christmas BOM.
It's a beautiful block! She has 12" and 6" blocks to work with.
Here we have another Christmas block and this one is from Fiona!
She is at Quilting Fairy blog! Love these snowmen!!!
I think this one is a Bunny Hill BOM.
Jennifer finished two of her blocks here!
They are from the Little Miss Shabby BOM.
So cute! I have been seeing some finished quilts
lately of this BOM... so adorable.
Jennifer doesn't have a blog but is joining in with us now in the
Awk! Can you stand these sweet prim baskets?!?
These were made by Marcella... she is moving right along with this project!
Here is what Sherry from Blessings from Our Nest blog made in the BOM Rehab this week!
It's another Christmas project. I love the embroidery projects.
Oh and lookie here! This is a finished Designer Mystery BOM
completed by Kim at A Peach in Quilting blog. Awesome.
I love this setting . It's so fun.
And now, I told you that I was inspired by Carol and I wanted to
make the Bunny Hill BOM from last year.
I got started and thought I would at least make a background or two...
but then I got carried away and didn't want to keep pulling out fabrics to see if
this month coordinated with that month yada yada...
and before you know it... I had all the backgrounds done.
I saw a sweet version on Anne Sutton's Flikr group and I am
kind of going with those colors and just adding in a hint of Fall.
I even traced off my applique pieces. But I am not going to applique
this project. I am going to go ahead and fuse the pieces.
I have another applique project coming up... and that will keep me busy enough.
I am pretty new to it... and consequently... pretty slow at it too!
