Monday Morning Design Wall 3/25/2013

 Happy Monday!  Running a bit late today as I was unable to get my pictures uploaded.  I did what I could and now I will just move on!  I spent the weekend in Chicago, well, more specifically, Glenview Illinois, just north of Chicago.  My family was celebrating my brothers 50th birthday, Happy Birthday Doug!!  I did hit a quilt shop and found a fantastic bead shop in the next town.  I also broke into my grandmothers cedar chest, using a hair pin and found the most beautiful linens, which she hand embroidered in the 1920's to the 1950's I would guess.  Wow, I cannot wait to work on a whole cloth quilt using the beautiful linens.  Check out Judy's blog and see the rest of the design walls!!

Monday Morning Design Wall 3/18/2013

 Happy Monday!! I have been working on finishing up old projects as my new years resolution and finally got the last block on my flower quilt done. I am still working on the embroidery for some of the blocks so I hope to have them done soon.    So, since I will be spending quite a bit of time in airports next weekend, traveling to Chicago to celebrate my brother's 50th birthday, I treated myself to starting a quilt I have been holding back on starting!!  Yippee. It is Alex Anderson's grape leaf patterns, can't remember the name right now but it turned out so nice!!  I am working on finishing up some quilts as I just received the notice that Dixon May Fair is only weeks away!  Yikes, I need to step it up to finish a few quits up so I can enter them in the quilt show.  I just need more time!  I spent last weekend in San Luis Obispo with my daughter, husband her her boyfriend.  We had a great time! Next weekend is Chicago...I need a vacation!  Check out Judy's blog to see all the other walls!!
