Sunshine Kisses is finished!

 Hello everyone,

I finished my lovely Sunshine Kisses quilt. Ohh, I just love it! So soft and warm and snuggly looking. The Sunkissed line by SweetWater is still one of my very favorites.

This is an original design, by me. I pieced it and quilted it too.

 As you can see, I did straight line quilting, one row on each side of the major seam lines. To emphasis the 4 square patches.

 This is a darling size quilt. Just right for a toddler to have a picnic on, or maybe a tea party with lots of stuffed animals. It's also just the right size for the baby in your life. Measures 46"x46".

A few close ups of the quilting.

Here's a better view of the back. I took it before I had finished the quilt. I decided I didn't like the green on the edges, so exchange them for a gray.

I've decided to dip my feet in the selling waters around here, and see if I can make a go at making some Christmas money :)

 I don't have an Etsy store, or any other online store. I know there are quite a few out there, but I don't think I have enough stuff yet to get one.

If anyone is interested in my quilt, just send me an email/comment and I'll get back to you.

Have a great day!

Fall pictures...

 But not your typical ones of changing leaves and pumpkins :)

 These are some flowers my DD has planted and taken care of. She loves to garden.

 And she loves playing with the macro lens on my camera. Yes, she took all these pictures :)

 Some crunchy brown leaves...

Some bird berries..

One thing I love about Fall is the ever changing sky. We get a lot of clouds moving around and about, sometimes leaving some rain, other times just pretty-ing up the sky.

These are sunset pictures. I'll have to take some sunrise pictures one morning.

I'm always up before the sun is, and I love to watch it come up while I eat my breakfast.

Have a beautiful day.

A finished top

 Hello everyone! Hope you are all enjoying some lovely Fall days...I know I am, finally. It's just beautiful here. Warm and sunny, with some rainy days thrown in...perfect.

I started this quilt in the Spring this year. It was intended for a jelly roll challenge.

 I love the Sunkissed line, so was happy to get a jelly roll and start playing.

 But, due to some math problems (who else hates math??!) which meant some fabric shortages (as I wanted particular colors and didn't have enough in the jelly roll), I didn't get this cute thing done in time for the challenge.

Soooo, my fourth child is due in the Spring, April to be exact :)  And I thought this would make a darling Spring baby quilt.

Here she is, Sunshine Kisses.....I have plenty of time to quilt it too.

 And even though this quilt would be cute for either boy or girl, it is a bit more now I best make a more boy-y looking we won't know the sex of our baby...till he/she gets here :)

And now it makes sense, all my no-blogging and tiredness...yes?!

Have a great day!

I needed a new wallet....

 My old one was OLD. I've had it for 15 or 16 yrs! It was getting worn out, and I really needed a new one.

 Sitting like this, it's 8x4.5". I didn't want one that folds up small. I needed one that wont get lost in a diaper bag, come next Spring :) You all know how when you carry a diaper bag, you don't want to have to carry a purse too. So this will fit right in, and it wont get lost.

It's 8x14" when open like this.

 It has plenty of room for my cards, a zip pocket for cash/change and a hidden pocket for my checkbook.

I still have to put some velcro on the tip of the point and the back of the zip pouch, so it stays shut. But I didn't have any, so made one without.

I am not sure what I'm going to work on today. Maybe it's a good time to start getting some 'C' presents made.

What are you up to? Do you have a list of 'C' presents that you need to make too?

Have a great day!!

I'm linking up with Jenna this week, at SewHappyGeek. Thanks Jenna!
