New stuff

First of all, I want to thank "Dollbugy" for buying my quilt in the recent auction! Your generous check will go towards finding a cure for Alzheimer's.

I've been busy with this and that, some things I can't share, other things I can.

Here's more fabric from the workshop at Teresa's. I painted over some ceiling tiles; after the fabric dried I dry-brushed all over so that the pattern would show better.

Detail. I intend to use this fabric in the border of my snowflake quilt.

I like this butterscotchy one. Teresa has some really cool grates, tiles, etc. Her blog is

I recent re-covered the seat cushions on our landing. Man, it was harder than I remembered! I may have to re-do one of them, but they will do for now. Matilda approves.

I made the seat covers as a result of our new bookcase next to it. I love it! It came from Plummers, and it is real wood. Unlike the previous bookshelves which were faux rosewood.

I think this is the cutest sundress ever. Whipped it out yesterday, from fabric purchased at the Long Beach Quilt Festival. I hope Samantha enjoys it. She is already imitating the chickens at the farm. Yes, for any new readers, our granddaughter lives on a farm.

The butterscotchy one positively sings! Am also so very miffed that I couldn't swing wearing a sweet dress like that anymore.
