Best of 2018

I was looking for photos for my favourite finishes of the year and discovered that I am so bad at remembering to take pictures.  I’m sure that by the time I finish and need to get things in the mail, I am in too much of a hurry.  At least that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

The first is Nova Lee’s Quilt.  This sweet baby girl is the second of my great grandkids so I went with a traditional pattern The Road to Oklahoma and treasured fabrics from my stash.

The second is “Homecoming”, my variation of a Lonestar, made for a friend who lost her home in a house fire.  It was made with fabrics from my stash from several designers that I love, sandwhiched with wool roving and beautiful batiks on a pieced backing and quilted on my domestic machine.  My friend will send me pictures when she gets the quilt in her rebuilt, off the grid home since I didn’t get pictures before I sent it off to her.  I needed to get it mailed right away so she would have it when they move in on Christmas Eve.

The third finish was finishing a move and getting my corner of the world set up after a very traumatic move (the paperwork is still being dealt with by the lawyers) after DH accepted an offer for the sale of property and several failed sales.  This finish meansI get to spend time every day with my machines in a tiny space which means I have to be very organized!

The fourth and fifth are photos of some of the mugrugs and organizers I made for Birthday and Christmas gifts.  I didn’t get photos of all 36 mugrugs, just 2 of my favourites.  All of them were made with bits from my “scrap bins”.  I made a total of 6 organizers in the perfect color combinations for the recipients.  I can share photos of one of them since it was a Birthday present and the recipient has already received it.  The others are all in the mail or already under trees.

All in all it was a great year of sewing, quilting and gifting.  Next year I will make sure to take more pictures to document my creative ventures.

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.
