stacked coin quilt

Got the strips cut for my Stacked Coin Quilt.

And the coin cut also.  Using the Daisy Chain charm pack my darling daughter got me for Christmas.
Now all I need to do is get sewing.  I'll keep you posted.

Got some stuff on the walls in my craft room

I finally got some stuff on the walls in my craft room.  My pumpkin stitchery by my clock.

I got some IKEA lighting up and cord covers made.  A couple of old drawers hung on the wall to store little cute things in.

Also some more of my stitchery framed and up on the wall.  I like them.  Might take the frames down and paint them a different color.

I love this iron

I bought a oliso iron about 2 years ago and just fell in love with it.  Well, about 4 weeks ago it started not lifting some of the time which means the iron doesn't shut off.  My lovely daughter Christina emailed the oliso company and they sent me a new iron to replace my 2 year old one.  Now that is what I call good customer service.  She told them that we loved the iron but the auto lift had stopped working.  Next thing I know I got and email from them saying they were sorry I wasn't satisfied and they would be sending me a replacement iron.  I would definitely buy from this company again with that kind of service.   So here's to lots of pressing and auto-lifting.  Have a great weekend.

Saturdays finds

On Saturday I went to the Star Malls Antique store with my friend Kandi.  We haven't done that in such a long time.  I was looking for thing to decorate my Sewing room and boy did I hit the jack pot.  I found this great little traveling iron.  Look like it is new.  I haven't tried it yet but I bet it works.

I also found this neat little sewing basket with so fun buttons, needles and hooks.

I love the green thread and buttons they look so springy.

And I found this tiny little westie charm I just had to have him.  After all my gmail is westiesgalore for a reason I have 4 of them.  This little guy will stay in my sewing room so I can look at him everyday.  Hope you all had a great weekend too.

My new little friend

This is my new little friend Baaob I made him this weekend.  He turned out really cute.

This is the book I used to make Baaob.  I just love these Japanese books.  It's a good thing there easy to follow because I can't read the directions.
Here is Baaob's back side as you can tell he is a little guy.

I can't wait to make some friends for him.  Maybe this week.

I think this is the last of the red work for a while

I think this will be the last of the red work for a while.  I think I'm going to try something else.  I have the new crewel I got last week and a few project in that book I would like to try.  I haven't done any crewel since I was in high school and let me tell you that was a loooooooooooooong time ago.  So I'll keep you posted on how it's going.
