Happy New Years!!!

It has been "forevers" since I have made a post due to a total hip replacement.  It was a total success, the pain is gone and I am back up running, well not literally but moving much better.  The month of Nov. was a blur trying to wrap things up knowing that I would be down for a bit.  I was blessed in that my surgeon did the anterior approach which allowed for a very quick and wonderful recovery.  I had no restrictions like that of the posterior approach which has allowed me to be back up in no time.  I am going to share some photo's of what went on before surgery, so hope you enjoy them.  The plan from here on out is to get all those idea's that ran through my head during my recovery time into actual projects, so be looking for new things to come. Meantime, have a wonderful New Year of blessings and exciting quilt adventures.
This is my "Comfort Quilt" that was presented to me at out end-of-the-year party.
Some of the blocks from my "Sampler Class" in NM
Some blocks from a class Lake Havasu, AZ
 I shared my mystery quilt and my shadow quilt with some gals from Silver City, NM

Pictures from my "UFO" Retreat, oh what fun!!!

My Spot in the Bloghop!

Welcome to my spot in the blog hop!!! What I would like
to share with all of you is how easy and fun it is to use 
AccuQuilt products to create beautiful quilts.
I am going to show you what I have done with
one of their fabulous dies the Arabesque #2.
My quilt is "Pour Out Your Heart" in which I
used it for the splash! 
I used it again in "Big Blue".  Great quilt for the little
guy in your family.
And then again in my Christmas runner.
Look what you can do with the tumbler block! My quilt
I am designing with this thought, is in the works and should
be out very soon.  Be checking here at my blog to see 
what the final outcome is, but meantime, create your own!
With the AccuCut products, designs are endless.  
There are kits available on my website all pre-cut,
pre-fused and ready to be put together.  How easy 
buy a kit and enjoy your new quilt.
Thanks so much for joining me in what I love to do!

September already!  A new month and new designs.  I am so enjoying putting together the apple core
blocks and so I made a pillow with some fishing fabrics I had and appliquéd small fishing swimming 
around the pillow.  The kit is called "Fishy Dreams".  

I completed the Calendar BOM for October.  Pumpkins and Scarecrows!

Where do the days go?

Time can get pass you in a flash of a moment.  I have been busy with classes and designing.  Here are a few pictures of some finished products from the Châtelaine and Bow Tuck classes  and the Apple Core place mat that I gave a "woodies flavor".  I made some wine cozies for some of the holidays to sell at my up & coming show in September!  Starting to get ready for the show in between classes.  The Châtelaine's still need to have their bindings finished but you can get the idea.  This is such a fun class because the gals get to be creative designing what fits their needs and wants best. I love the ring that Suzie put on hers to hold her glasses, wish I thought of that for mine!

Just a few of the bags!

Here is the black & white bag that I made 
for myself.  I had a watch party the night 
before so I had to have a bag to match.
Visit Melissa's blog and check out these
awesome watches! 

The woodies place mat. These are so much fun
to make using the "Curve Master"

Seasonal Wine Cozies!

Tuesday Tea Towel Toppers

The Tea Towel Toppers have begun!  What fun we had Tuesday making the first topper.
The gals loved the pattern and loved the fact that they started it, finished it and took it home.
I added a tea bag pocket for them and that got finished, too.
 Back to the design board for the next topper.
Keep posted to my blog and my website for more.
