I've been trying to post these fun photos of my mom and granddaughter but the phone has been temperamental.

I have been having problems posting blog posts on my phone. Fingers are crossed that I can succeed via the iPad! These are photos from a recent visit with Warren and Valentina, plus a dress that I recently sewed for her. Val is turning one in about a week!

The last photos from our visit to Central NY in August. I loved this photo of Sammy holding a chicken! There is a photo of my mother holding a chicken as a girl; I will try to add it later.

This is the quilt I made for the Yvonne Porcella tribute, organized by Pokey Bolton. I call it "A Toast to Yvonne (And to Strong Women Everywhere)." It was inspired by the toasts made at Dinner at Eight dinners.

These photos were all taken today with my Easy Macro Lens, which I bought recently at Photojojo. $15. It's a lens embedded in a sturdy rubber band, which wraps around my iPhone, but it works! What do you think?

Now that our little senior doxie is too old to go on neighborhood walks, I am spending more time with her in our back yard. While I make sure she does her business, I also have been doing some trimming and weeding. I've become a little obsessed with oxalis - it's overwhelming when I look at the whole yard, but if I take it one weed at a time, then a handful of weeds at a time, I can keep at it. Maybe someday it will look like I made a dent. ;-)
I have also been able to go on longer walks on my own, not slowed down by the dog. It feels good, although I miss my walks with Gingie-Baby, really I do.
All the weeding outside has spread indoors, to my art studio. The fabric from recent projects has been mostly put away, and the remainder is in a basket rather than the floor. I was going to show you a photo of the basket, but it might tell too much about my last quilt, so I won't.
I am also trying to organize my sewing and knitting patterns.
I know, it still looks messy, but at least they're not all over the floor. And they'll be easier to finish organizing now.
I am working on a small quilt, too. Handwork now, machine quilting soon! I will show it soon.

I finished the two quilts I was working so hard on and have been sewing some clothing. Matching granddaughter dresses for Sammy and Val.
