Time seems to be racing by and I am trying to keep up with it.  Not sure that I am having any success, but I keep trying.  The DH got his cast of this week and is now in a boot. He still is not supposed to walk on it, but he does.  DD#1 is slowly recovering from her back surgery. She got her staples out this week so that is a bit of progress. She is ready to start sewing! I got her a sewing machine for Christmas and promised her sewing lessons when she was ready for them.  We never got started before surgery, but she is ready to start doing some simple projects and learning her machine.

Despite the best of intentions, I am way behind on my gift giving already this year. I missed 3 birthdays and I 'owe' 4 baby quilts. I had a top made for one of the blankets, but never got a backing I liked. This weekend JoAnn fabric had  ultra plush on sale so I bought some for backings. Now I just need to get it quilted. I made two charm square blankets with the Pure charm pack. One is for a project at work and the other is for my DD's friend who has a 6 week old baby boy. ( All of the baby blankets are for boys).

I got the borders on my BOM guilt from the book Hop to It. Here is the book

Here is my quilt. The design wall is full, so the photo isn't very good, but I will try and get a better one taken when I get the wall cleaned off.

I finally got started on this quilt  (I posted the photo awhile ago, I won the patterns from Lori of Humble Quilts).

Here is the fabric:

Now if I can just get them sewn.

Stay warm and keep stitching everyone!!!


  1. With all the nursing you've been doing so far this year I think everyone will understand delays! That said, you've made some progress. The baby quilts are very sweet, and your BOM is impressive. Enjoy teaching your daughter to sew as well!

  2. All the quilts are really pretty and I love the "Hop To It" quilt. Are all the blocks appliqued? It is so beautiful! Hope everyone is feeling a lot better.


  3. I'm glad to hear both hubby and daughter are making progress. Hop to It is beautiful. The baby quilts are perfect for little boys, too. I hope things settle down for you soon so you can get back to quilting!

  4. I love the Pure fabric. I just made a table runner with it. It makes really cute baby quilts too! I was lucky enough to meet Lori in Oregon and she is so sweet. Her quilts are amazing!

  5. I'm glad things SEEM to be settling down for you. I'm sure you'll then catch up with things pretty quickly.

  6. Glad your family is getting better and more mobile;) The baby quilt is the colors;) And the applique quilt is wonderful;) Take care and don't worry about getting stuff to people....they can wait;)
    Happy Quilting!!

  7. What a beautiful stack of fabrics! And your quilt tops are all wonderful! Time heals most things, and soon you'll have quilting time again. ---"Love"

  8. Glad to hear everyone is doing better. Your baby quilt is really adorable, the applique is wonderful. Take care. Connie204

  9. I especially love the two 'Pure ' quilt tops. (I might have to buy some of that fabric.) I hope you and your daughter have a wonderful time bonding over fabric.
