Working on right now

I have many projects going on right now, because I get some many ideas in my head, I can't seem to keep up with my thoughts. I woke up this morning with a whole new plan. I read a blog of a special someone from the HGTV board last night and read that they liked turtles. Well it was the first thing I thought of this morning. So, I got right up and went to the sewing room, to make her a gift. I know she is a crazy quilter and likes turtles. I had make these crazy blocks I made months ago (don't know why) but just had to try. I ended up using 4 of them on a pincushion for a swap I was in, but still have quite a few left. They are made with very cheery fabric. I had also made a hugh long row of prairie points with the same fabric for another quilt but ended up not using it, because my Cliff wanted the quilt after he seen it put together, and I though prairie points were kinda girly. Okay, so I have all these crazy blocks and matching prairie points. I pictured a tote with these blocks and a turtle on the front of the bag with some thread painting on it and the prairie points on the top edge of the bag. I also thought I could machine embroider her name on the front also.Just as soon as finish this I'm going to post a pic of it. I have also been working on some dotee dolls for another HGTv swap. Here are some of them. Other things I'm working on daily are my Demise of SBS and Sam blocks, I am handquilting a quilt for the QWL(quilt with love). There is a sweet lady on the HGTV board that goes by the screen name MedeMo, she put this hugh effort together to make quilts for our troops that are over seas. She takes in quilts, blocks, and tops. I have also cut my fabric for Bonnie Hunters "Rocky mountain stars" quilt, this will be for one of my sisters. This quilt goes with her sorta primitive/country/cabin look she has going on in her house. I have fabric washed and ready to go for my brothers scottie dog quilt, and a ton of muted earth tones for my other sisters quilt. I think it will look good with many different fabric, to give it that scrappy look.
