Got a few things finished

This is a little miniature scarecrow I made for a swap and then decided it just wasn't something I thought my partner might like. He's about 14" tall.

So, I made this for her and it felt more like what I thought she was hoping for. It's the size of a piece of printer paper.

And then I finally finished this queen size top that I had made about a year and a half ago. I lost this top more then once during my moves and just about everything that could possibly delay it being finished happened but in the end, we were all happy with how it turned out. The piecing and top itself turned out great but my quilting on this was not some of my best work. It was easy to for me to see I hadn't quilted in awhile but no one else seem to see what I seen. That's the wonderful part about making quilts for others they love them no matter what and never pick every little stitch apart like I do on my own work. But I've always felt done is better then perfect, so I'm very happy with how it turned out.

OH how I wish I could sew

I really miss just sitting and sewing. I know it won't be long before I can have all my sewing stuff out again, but I am missing my quilting sew bad. I know one thing for sure once I do get to drag all my clutter out again, I will be quilting up a storm. You can bet there will be threads a flying.

You know what I love about blogging

When you get to missing your family and loved ones, you can go back to the beginning of your blog and relive all of the wonderful times you spend with them. At least the ones you wrote about. I didn't make it all the way through, because I'm about to cry now. I do miss them.
