A Finish, And A Conundrum

How in the world does all of this -

fit on this?

Well, at least it DID fit...until I took it off.  Couldn't get it all back on to save my life.  I might need to finish a few projects.  [Please disregard the dust - I haven't been home for six months!]

But hey, I did finish a project!!!!  One of the happiest quilts I've ever designed....it's a solid fave at my house.

I am so in love with this little quilt.

I adore outline quilting by hand - very relaxing!

I started this quilt back in April of this year.  It has changed a bit from the original design, and I couldn't love it more.  I can't believe it took me so long but I did have some distractions...and then, I had to hand quilt it because I was at my aunt's with no sewing machine!

If you love it too, it'll be a free download in my craftsy shop later this week, I'll let you know when.  I'm writing the pattern now.

I've had a lot of company while I've been working on it.  Apparently we're getting all new water mains and culverts on our street -

I don't think my neighbor is getting into his driveway tonight....

The mailman had to come back, and then hand me my mail.  I can just imagine what the street is going to look like with all the rain we've got coming!

Off to brew a fresh pot of coffee and do some writing!

Love that pattern, and if I do machine applique stitch ,will that do??? Please, I would love a download. And the water, well over here there are gale winds in most places, snow in the south, and it is coming north, we are snug inside, like you, coffee, mine is by the fire. Stay dry and above water at all times. I'm so glad you are home. Hugs.Jean

Your little quilt is fabulous! And I think the hand quilting makes it just perfect. So glad you're finding time to quilt.

Love the pattern Allie. I had to laugh about using your exercise bike
to pile things on. What better use is there!

Live A Little is a good thing for you to remember. You have been so busy the last 6 months.

That's a happy little quilt - you must smile when you look at it :)

OHHHHHHHH the mud you'll have for the next while - what a mess!

Dolores said...

Love that little quilt. I'm glad I don't live on your street. MUD and more mud. Nice to see your photo on the profile. How's your mom?

They do make a bit of a mess don't they :-) It's the noise of heavy digging machines digging our NEW DITCH :-) and not being able to squeeze through our own front gate that really got to me last year. We still say, if we ever see a hard hat again it will be too soon. Then we go to the main road and the new road build is still going on... hum, only another year of it to go. Love the new quilt Allie. Lots and lots of love, squeak to you soon :-) xxxxx
