Book of Ink Circles Progess

I was sick on Thanksgiving day and our internet crashed so I found myself with lots of time to myself. I was able to finish another square on my BoInk. I was going to work some more on the frame but I ran out of black floss. So, I used that as an excuse to keep working on the blocks. :)

This weekend, I should be trying to work on the quilts. If I don't wind up going shopping that is. ;)

Here are the puppies! It's amazing how much they change as a few weeks go by. The adult dog is not the mother, it's Aunt Julie. She loves to play with them. For the most part, she has been very gentle with them. We are working on weaning them now.

Where Has The Time Gone?

Wow! It's been a while since I have updated my blog. Mostly because I haven't been working on anything lately. Until now that is. I hate it when I get so busy that I don't have time to make something. Stitching, sewing, painting, ect.. are the ways that I relieve stress and when I'm the busiest, that's exactly when I need to relieve stress! So here's what I've been up to.

Here is the quilt that I am making for my cousin Nathan. I have finished the quilt top!

I pretty much designed it myself, not that the design is real complicated. I wanted to leave the army, navy, air force, ect, fabrics in wide strips so that he could see all the details of the fabrics. It ended up a little bit longer than I expected but that should work out just fine since my cousin is super tall and still growing.

I added these cute stars in the corners to give it interest. I am quite pleased with how it all turned out and I'm sure he's going to love it.

Now I have to machine quilt this one and Emily's quilt (the one with the butterflies) before Christmas. If I have extra time, I may make a few pillowcases to match both quilts.
