Welcome. My husband and I have been married for 46 years. We were both born and raised in St. Louis, MO. But have lived in Southeast Missouri for 39 years. We have a farm and raise Angus cattle and some crops. My son and grandsons do all the work. I love paper arts but I have cross stitched for 30 years or more, quilted for 24 years, done rug hooking and woolwork for 10 years, Needle punch for 3 years, and needle felting. I have many good friends that enjoy the same things that I do. My Best Friend is my daughter Barb, and she enjoys the same things. I am lucky that we can get together and scrapbook, quilt, cross stitch or what ever we are working on at that time.
I did the applique blocks awhile back so all I had to do was add the borders.
This is Anna's Starry Night quilt kit I had. Turned out real nice. This quilt is 79" X 93". I have the backing, and binding ready to go to the quilter.
Then we had time to make those 15 min. table runners. It took us longer to shop for fabric then make them.
We had a great time at Quilt Retreat. It was cold, damp, and dark but with such great friends I didn't even notice. The sun came out on Fri. This picture is just a few of the gifts that my friends made or gave to me. There was a lot of bags too. Which we always need bags.
When the sun is out I get lots done. I got this Lil' Twister ruler in the mail yesterday so I had to make this Twisting Pinwheels. The finished size is 18.5 X 21.5". I don't know if I will put a border on it or not. All you need is 30- 5" squares and a 3" border to start with. I guess I should of made it out of spring colors but I had this Autumn charm pack and I wanted to use it. It was so much fun I think I will make another one.
