Some Mid-Week Minis!

Here's a few more of my minis that I finished recently. 

This one is from the Jo Morton Little Women Club 8, which took place last year. I'm also doing club 9, although at this time "doing" consists of fondling the JM fat quarters and looking at the other ladies finished projects in the email newsletter LOL. Hey, I can live vicariously through my fellow quilters, can't I? 

 And this little quilt is from a series offered by Farmhouse Woolens, one of my favorite shops!  

2010 is turning out to be the "Summer of the Mini" for me! Wonder what this next season will bring...I predict a wooly Fall ! Well we still have many weeks to go til then, so only time will tell :)

A Woolie Ol' Glory

I just love Buttermilk Basin patterns! I purchased this little wall quilt kit from Karen Perry of Farmhouse Woolens and it worked up super quick! And came out just so cute! I cheated..I didn't even quilt it, just tied a few buttons shhhh don't tell the "quilt police" :)

It's another scorcher of a day out there again today..hmmmm...I guess I won't feel so guilty if I stay in and sew some more then! LOL

A Bitty Finish

Yes folks, don't fall off your seats, but I finished MORE THAN ONE PROJECT TODAY!! woohoo for summer staycations! LOL

These little framed woolies are from the pattern Itty Bitty Button Pictures from All Through the Night patterns! They worked up fast and were alot of fun!  Gosh, will I be as prolific tomorrow as I was today? Is this the start of a new trend? Or more like a fluke of nature? LOL

I'd put money on the fluke...but only tomorrow will tell :)

First finish of my Summer Vacation!

I finished my first vacation project and just LOVE how it came out! The whole pillow front is wool with perle cotton buttonholing and embroidery and the back is a cotton print. 

It's been unbearably hot here for the last few days...temps in the high 90's and today is no exception! I was up super-early this morning and just couldn't stay in bed, so it was a good morning to finish this pillow up and move on to something else :) Luckily there is NO shortage of quilting projects in my house LOL

Just had to share!!

These pics are just too precious to NOT share!!! I made my youngest great-niece Susannah a cute quilt, and her mom, my niece Stephanie, posted pics on Facebook of both her kids and their "auntie robin" quilts! She has SUCH cute kids I just had to share :)

Susannah and her girlie-girl quilt!

And her big brother, Bryan with his jungle quilt!

Seeing these two cuties with their quilts reminds me so very much of why I love to do what I do!! Every scrap of fabric and piece of thread becomes a labor of love for those who mean the very most to me!! Oh oh..I better stop now..Auntie Robin's gonna cry :)

So tell me why do YOU do what you do?? And does it bring a tear to your eye sometimes? LOL Dang, I think the older I get the mushier I get!!
