Mary Belle

This is my newest pattern! I named this quilt after my great-aunt "Belle" she taught me to quilt. She always seemed to have a quilt on the frames in her living room. I use to stay at her house with my cousin and we would play under the quilt frames and I was always intrigued watching her take all those tiny stitches. she was my inspiration in making this quilt. I hope you enjoy!

My girlfriend Louise and I had a mini retreat in St. George. We decided to make these cute pincushions with the thread catchers. It was so much fun to laugh and get time together to sew. I am working on my next pattern.. I showed you the picture of the block in my last post.

Another busy time.. but summer is about over!

Well I got the kids to help out with the canning. This is the last of it for awhile.. I hope. They are putting the pears in the bottles for me. My son has grown up with me bottle so he gets the whole idea. My daughter in law is great to pitch in helping whenever it is needed. I am so lucky to have them. Who would believe these two are very traditional! We do most of the canning for my parents who are in their 80's for Christmas gifts.
I started a new quilt this week! I haven't decided on a name yet.. if you have suggestions I do love to hear them!

Another block!
The summer is about over.. hard to believe! I am heading up to my family's cabin for the weekend so I can get some rest and of course sew a few more blocks! Thanks for stopping by.. I love reading everyone's blogs.. I need to blog more.. but I am not going to let that one stress me out!
