Quilting update...

As I mentioned back in late May, I took on doing some English Paper Piecing and creating these wonderful hexagons by hand. Who knew it would grow so quickly? I didn't hold out much hope I would get this far so I am both surprised and thrilled with the results. It's almost done and ready to become a "real" quilt. LOL! This is my BBQ (baby brother quilt) in honor of my brother Santos who passed away in May of 2012. Many of the fabrics are from clothing that belonged to him.

Catching up...yet again

Hello all,
My poor little blog has been neglected by me yet again. Just where do the hours in the day go? I did have a few weeks off recovering from surgery and I did manage to get some stitching, reading, and even quilting done while I was at home. So here is a little of what I been up to. I stitched "Miss Peepers" by Little House Needleworks awhile back and finally got her laced and framed. Being in the patriotic mood in June I took on "Sams in Stripes" by Cross-Eyed Cricket (CEC). I have the most perfect frame for this piece and hope to have it laced and framed real soon.
