I did not have any luck working on my UFOs but this week I have pulled out Waltzing with Bears to start piecing the next borders which I finalized the design for the finishing blocks. 🤔

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.

    1. Hi Wendy. Grace is actually a great granddaughter. Can you believe I have grandkids old enough to have littles of their own 😉 I’m so happy to be getting near the end of my bin! Strings are sorted and ever so many squares and hats pre cut! I love playing with scraps 😁

  2. You have been busy!!! How in the world can you only have 3 bags of scraps left???? I just might have to fix that … if we happen to drive through your town next summer / fall … 🙂

    Your newest great granddaughter is a sweety!! Keep enjoying her pictures! One day you’ll be able to hold and cuddle her in person!
    Happy Quilting! 🙂

    1. Hi Gail. I think I might be getting my sewjo back. 🤔 I think Grace is a little darling. She looks exactly the same as Clarke when I first held her at 3 days. I’m hoping to meet her next fall maybe?!?
      Scraps for me! Woo Hoo! 😉


  3. Congratulations on your newest great-grand! What fun! I’m impressed that you’re whittling down all your scrap bags, too. That is always an ongoing project!

  4. Hi Carol! Lots and lots of goodness in this post . . . but come on . . . those baby shots are just the BEST ever. Grace looks so cute – I just want to scoop her up. Levi and Clarke are getting so big! What are their ages? Yippee for being down to only three baggies of scraps. Are the pink blocks for RSC? They all look interesting – one might be a wonky log cabin? Thanks so much for linking up toady! ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Thank you Sherrie. Isn’t she a beauty. I’m lucky her Mom sends me lots of photos of her big sister Clarke. They don’t live close so it will likely be fall or next winter before I get to hug or cuddle them. Stay well 😁
