"Blowing Rock"

Barbara and I went to Blowing Rock in Boon, NC .... It was very windy and it started to rain when were out on the platform to soak up the view.... What a lovely place to go.... I could not resist climbing up one of the rocks.... Yes, that's me in the third picture.... We bought apples on the way home.... I made a apple pie when we got back.... Yummy... Enjoy  Hugs :)

"Funraising Quilts"

These three quilts were to raise money for my girlfriend's brother-in-law who needed double lung transplant  surgery.... When Barbara told me that her brother-in-law needed the surgery and asked if I would make a quilt for a fund raising for him... I said that I would and when I was telling my friends on the Cape they wanted to help as well.... My friend Adele donated these three quilt kits... The top quilt is for a girl, the second is for a man, and the third is for a woman... Click on the to get a better look at the .... I was overwhelm with her generosity... She has a business in selling quilting products.... I sewed the tops together then quilted them... We did very well at the silent auction to raise money for the surgery.... A BIG Thanks to Adele ... Hugs :)

I want to introduce a new addition to my family.... This is Princess.... A friend of mine took her in till I got to be with her.... The story behind this lovely cat is... Barbara's step-daughter found this cat outside her house crying... She gave the cat to Barbara and, she took her in and took her to the vet.... Someone had to throw her out their car because Princess had two cracked teeth, scraped chin and scraped pads... She also had eye infection.... The vet said that she was approximately 11 weeks old... She is 100% better and Barbara could not keep her because she has 3 other rescued cats... So, she has become mine...I fell in love with her right away.... I just do not know how someone could be so cruel... Hugs :)

Katy"s Quilt Top

Katy and a few of us did a shop hop two years ago and she (Katy) fell in love with this pattern... She asked me to do the hand embroidery and I said yes.... After Katy sewed the top together, she gave me the top to do the embroidery... Here is a closer look at the embroidery below....

It was done with stem stitch and cross stitches... I did not work on it steady but just under two years I was able to give it back to Katy.... Oh, I forgot to add that Katy mixed up the materials .... The white in the middle was suppose to be where the dark teal is... But, I think it looks lovely the way it is... She is also happy the way it came out... Enjoy Katy, I enjoyed doing this for you... Hugs :)

Pin Cushion and Thread Catcher

My Sister wanted me to make a Pin Cushion and Thread Catcher for a friend of her's.... Her friend loves dragon fly's ... My sister's friend loves her gift.... I have made so many of these for friends of mine... Hugs :)
