This post is a major Catch up with what has going on around here. Yes, I have been busy and in-between busy I have worked on a few things. So here you go!
Two years ago I craved a Funkin, here you can see how it looked. Well this year when I unpacked it there was a little accident and the middle part broke off. There was too much detail. So anyway we decided it looked like a monster's mouth and we decided it needed a tongue and some eyes. How do you like the new look? I just used paper for the tongue and eyes.
We purchased some new inside decoration and one is on loan to us. All at half price, my 2nd favorite price.
I have done some tying of Mr. B's quilt but I most admit I am not loving this. I need to get it done for Christmas or before because he needs it and has been very patiently waiting for this. I was going to give it to him last Christmas. But life happened.
I felt like doing some piecing.
I really wanted to make the Twister Jack-O-Lantern but I couldn't find the pattern at any of my favorite places. Here is a link to the pattern. So I decided to make this little snowman that I was going to make last year and didn't. This is made from a charm pack. I found the squares hard to cut in half with the little pointy edges. Better done than perfect. It still needs some embellishments before it is sandwiched and quilted.
I also took two quilting classes. This is my piece from the walking foot class. Yes I have taken classes before and I have done most of my own quilting, except on three quilts. One of my goals for my retirement was to become a better quilter and so I took a couple of classes, this one was the walking foot class, the second one was the free motion class. I learned a lot from both of them.
The best part is I learned some new ideas for quilting so maybe I will get out of my same old same rut. I didn't take a picture of the free motion sample yet so I'll save it for another post. I took the classes from Sandy Davis at A Quilter's Oasis.
And last but not least I am still making more Yo-Yos for my Yo-Yo quilt. From this post in
August you can see I have a
few more yo-yos, but not a lot.
If you click on this link, it will take you to my Genealogy Blog and you can see the Family History Scrapbooking pages I have made. I am loving how they have turned out.
Have fun whatever you are doing!!
