What Caught My Eye!

Miniture rose in the backyard


A few things that caught my eye this week...........


Hopefully someday I will be able to make these fun Fabric Gift Bags from my stash! There is a video to follow along with!

How do they get so much done????  Well here is a something I do with  23 minutes. I have been doing this for a few years and it REALLY WORKS!

Love this three ingredient grilled chicken recipe from "Pinch Of Yum" . Don't you just love the blog name?

Some magical power just knew I was looking for this List. This came just in time for those summer days on the beach or on the back deck. Wahoo!

Chrissie D has a great tutorial on how to clean your rotary matt. Mine is starting to look a bit shabby.

Things Just Happen!

Am I behind or not?
I guess it is the way you look at.


I was hoping to have this pieced and quilted by now to meet the July deadline.
I was a bit over zealous!


So I have altered my goal for the ALYOF's 
This month is having it pieced and Junes is to have it quilted.


 Not sure if this is legal with ALYOF.
If not I guess I am a Outlaw!

Lovely Blog Award

Judy at Quilt Paradigm nominated me for the "One Lovely Blog Award". With so many great blogs, it was so nice of her to pick me as one of her favorites to share. As so many of us blogettes do--we create connections with other bloggers and Judy's creativness always has me locked in! If you have not been to her blog--please do--always something to see!






The photos are some things I have made or quilted.




We are to share 7 things about ourselves that you may not know and link 10 bloggers that we feel are "Must Reads and Follows".



7 Things!

1. My real life job has been operating and running a campground on the Jersey coast for the past 32 years! 


2. I have been working with my husband ever since I have meet him 33 years ago. And it works out great for us!



3.We have 2 sons. One is self-employeed and the other is a helicoptor flight instructor.




4.)  Our business is seasonal, which allows a nice portion of the year to quilt--ALLOT!


5.) My mother kindly nudged me to a quilting class 24 years ago and we both were hooked. Love that we can share this together!




6.) I currently am President of our local quilt guild and am a member of a Modern guild as well.


7.) May favorite part of making a quilt is the Quilting!

What A Beauty!

WIP Quilting Accomplish!

Diane is a accomplished quilter, quilting teacher as well as long arm quilter.




This is a quilt she made for a classs as a sample last year.



Her plan was to give it as a gift for a family member getting married.




Health has become a major obstacle for her which left her unable to quilt this piece.




Knowing how much she enjoys the quilting process,
for her to ask for my help--I knew it was serious.



Diane likes allot of thread on a quilt.



So that is what she got!




















Diane, I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed quilting it!
