Something for me

I got the A is for Apron book a while back and have been wanting to make something. So I finally did. I picked up the pear and apple fabric last week and the pink this weekend. I love the combo. I was having trouble enlarging the pattern. So my darling daughter helped me. She was able to get the rounded edge copies and I winged the rest. I think it turned out pretty nice. Maybe I'll wear it on Thanksgiving.

Another Quilt for Lady

Here is Lady's living room quilt. I finished it yesterday on Friday craft day. I have a lot of red in the room so it goes well.

I pieced the back and I think it's as cute as the front.

And here she is Queen Lady. I think she likes it. It looks like she is saying thanks mom I needed this.

Lady enjoying her new quilt

Here's Lady enjoying her new quilt. It looks cute but I think I need to wash it so it's nice and soft for her. She likes them well worn. Her other one is almost done just need to sew on binding. Hopefully will get done and show you this week.

Okay I've lost it now I'm making quilts for dogs

Okay, I'll admit it I'm a little crazy. I made a couple of quilts for one of my dogs this weekend. I'm almost done still sewing on the binding. I made them for my dog Lady. She always lays on the couch by me. When I moved into my new house a couple of years ago and got a new couch. I always laid a quilt down beside me and she would lay on it. I took the one off the living room couch to wash and just never got around to putting back and she is just lost. She just doesn't know where to lay. So I made her one for the couch in the office where we spend most evening. And one for the living room which I'm still working on just about done will blog about later this week.

This is Lady on an old scrape quilt I brought at a garage sale. Just not as cute as the new one I made her. She is such a girly dog. I started the quilt thing so she wouldn't get the couch dirty. Now she can't sleep without one.

Still in a funk

I'm still in a funk don't feel like crafting. This picture is a good example of what it feels like inside me right now. Foggy and gray. But I do have hope as you can see the bright sun trying to break out. That's the crafter in me trying to come through.

So sad

I don't usually talk about politics here as I think of this as a craft blog where I blog about crafts. But I'm so depressed about the result of the election that I can't even read all 25 of the blogs on my google reader tonight. I'm sad for America. I don't think we know what we done. Enough said I will try to get back to crafting tomorrow.

Finishing up some more projects

I know it's hard to believe but I can still blog. I haven't just be AWOL I have been crafting. Here are a couple of project that I finished.

I did finish it in time to hang before Halloween. I started it last year so it is nice to have it done.

I've been working on the chicken wall hanging quilt for about 2 years and it's done.

Sugar Rush( a is a pretty new project for me. I bought it on my end of the summer vacation and started it in Sept. Can you believe I finished it. Good turn around for me. I even played around with the picture in Lightroom. See I have been doing things. Made a Christmas table runner this evening. I try and show it this week sometime.
