Pink Saturday

Welcome to Pink Saturday everyone.  It's been a while since I've posted.  I was sick for almost two months and then trying to catch back up with everything and of course life got in the way too. lol  Here I am and so happy to be back though.  Be sure you go by Beverly's How Sweet The Sound

This is the pink quilt I've been working on.  It started out as a comfort quilt and has turned
into a queen size quilt. lol  I think I got a little carried away.  I was having
fun with the pinks and next thing I knew, there it was.  It does need
a couple of borders to make it a little wider but the length
 is just fine.  I have another one on the frame
right now so this one will wait a while.
This is a sweet little spring TeaPot that I have and I just love it.  Just
looking at it makes me think of the wonderfl days we have
ahead of us.  Right now it's one storm after another
that we're dealing with but hopeflly that will
be over before too much more.

Happy Pink Saturday Everyone!

Nursery Quilts

Well, I'm at work so I can't pull up any pictures to post but I can do that when I get home later.  I'm making  much needed quilts for the nursery here at church.  I've got about 14 or more ready to quilt and just finished the second one.  So hopefully this week end I'll be able to quilt several and then I can sit back and stitch the binding on when I'm here.  (In between work that is.)  When I get home today I'll try to remember to take some pictures, thinking of it and doing it are two different things.  I think about it here but when I get home I tend to forget, so I just wrote myself a little note.

I'm also on a Yahoo group that has been making hearts to swap.  What we do is, each month everyone makes one heart and then there is a name drawn to see who gets them that month.    Of course then that name is taken out of the drawing and she draws the next winner.  This month Rose Anne won the hearts so she will pick next months winner.  Pretty cool huh?  We're going to do a second round of it, so we'll all have enough to make a wall hanging or something we'd like to do with them.

Ok, it's back to work, so I've written myself a note to take pictures when I get home.

Have a great day and a great week end!

My Pink Quilt that started out as a Comfort Quilt

All these years
I've been quilting and I have two quilts. No, make that three.  One is a Christmas Quilt, the other is a Halloween Quilt and the third is one made of primary color blocks when my 18 year old grandson was born.   I haven't kept any for myself.  Well, I LOVE pink and I started out making this pink quilt for myself as a comfort quilt, but it kind of kept growing and growing and growing.  Now it needs to grow two more borders,  A two inch and a three inch. lol  So I pulled some pink out of my stash and I'll try and get those on this week.  THEN  I will put it in line to quilt it.  I'm quilting a "HUGS" quilt, and then I have some children's quilts to do first, then I can do this one for my bedroom.   So we'll start the spring off with a pretty pink quilt on our bed.  Thank goodness I have an easy going sweetheart of a husband.  Have a great week everyone.
