WIP-4 / Road to California Quilt Festival 2015

Okay, I went and I had a really good time. Perused the aisle at my pace and visited many quilting friends through out the day.
I did purchase fabrics for up coming WIPs that I will turn into wallets for sale in my shop.
WIP by tent maker from Cairo
Watched the tent maker speedily work his magic at appliqué and boy was he fast and good. Raw cuts as he went and flying hands with the thread and needle. 'WOW', was really all I could say.

Beautiful quilts and lots of shopping and memories made, again.
I love the show.

Thanks to Angie, for allowing me to link to her WIPs over at http://quiltingreadersgarden.
How are your plans going for your project?

You know your a Quilter when….
there is more fabric in your house than food.
you learn to quilt and forget how to cook.
you stay up way past your bedtime to sew 'One more set'.
you think your chores are an interruption to your quilting.
you have more projects planned than ten lifetimes.
you clean your sewing room and everyone thinks your leaving.
your idea of heaven is quilting with friends.

I come very close to being a true quilter.

minke and dots
I know this is a challenge for me, to keep the WIP's going as well as sharing them as they progress. Thanks to Angie over at, I am reminded and inspired to keep at this. Only time will tell how well I do. And time is an issue.
bumper pad ties
Juggling the family responsibilities and the out of home job as well as my Etsy shop, I find very little time to blog. But I am going to do my best to share with you what I am working on.

WIP #2 Yay!

I am a little late on this but maybe I could say I am a little early. This was my grandson's baby quilt out of a panel and its companion fabric.

I have been very busy with making wallets for my shop. No complaints. 
I feel like everyday, that I finish with one, I have finished a new quilt.
We quilters cut fabric up, sew it back together, quilt it and bind it right? 
Well, that is what I do with the wallets I make.
I make lil usable travel, fit in your purse, stuff all your precious articles size quilts, sort of.

Hope your work in progress is making you sing.
I love this kind of therapy.

Time Keeps on Slipping...

I can not believe how fast this summer has gone by. We were just out of school for the year and now we are getting ready to start again.
Although, I will not be homeschooling this year.
I have so much on my plate and so little time to devote to the important task, so she will be attending a school close by.
I will continue to babysitting when needed, which seems like most of the time.
I have been continuing to make new items for my etsy shop, but not as much as I need to.
I don't really know where the time has been spent.

Inspiration's Big Bear 

Vina De Lastonnac Temecula Ca. 
I did go on a couple of quilt retreats, around my birthday.
I have been searching new ideas for items to add to my shop.

47,000 attendees Packed House
I attended two night at the Harvest Crusade, at Anaheim Stadium.
And I guess getting ready for another grand baby.
#6 grand baby coming soon
Time just never stops.
What has been keeping you busy this summer?

Baby's Birthday

Wednesday will be my baby's birthday and she will be 28. Wow how time flies. I have been so busy making theses cell phone / passport cases for ladies in my Summer Bible Fellowship group, that I almost didn't have the time to make her something.
Sew…. I squeezed this in today, just for her.
I think she will really get some use out it, because, she is going to have another family member in November. So with her little one, and one on the way, she will have her hands so full, she'll need something to keep her phone handy.
Hope you are enjoying this summer so far.
I have been sewing these cases for almost two months now, and have finally caught up with myself.
What do you think of all these? Do you like them? Everyone who has one, Loves them!
They tell me what they would like to have whether, color or theme and I create.
I have enjoyed them. I think I will add more to my shop soon.

What is your color or theme?
