Lots Going On

Finished all of my binding. Three of my largest quilts (and one of the oldest) DONE!

Check out the new ironing board. Isn't it pretty. 18 inches wide and four legs. Every ironing board I've had in the past was a hand-me-down with T-feet...the T stood for teeter-totter. Ever time it would tip I'd have to remember not to grab the iron and hope there wasn't a cat (or my foot) underneath.

I finished the quilt top I started at my mom's.

And pieced a back for it.

I started Sherri's (This and That) Monday Mystery. Normally I wait until after the mystery is over but this time I decide to brave it...here are the first two blocks. This is going to be fun.

I also cut all my solid scraps into strips and started a new quilt...I'm planning on making a quilt using only solids...

...way out of my comfort zone but I'm really excited about it.

Finally Busy

I went to visit my mom last weekend hoping to get away from the heat; it didn't work. While it was cooler (103-108 at home, 96-102 at my mom's) it was still too hot to do much more than sew.

I started a new project...and almost finished it.

Don't worry I didn't neglect my mom...

She was right behind me working on her own project...she has been making a bazillion of these little wallets. 

Check out her sewing space. An old treadle coffin sewing machine cabinet. The original sewing machine is gone, her Elna is under the cover.

Her sewing machine foot pedal propped up on the treadle pedal makes me giggle.
