Most women find change/money in the washer and dryer. I always find tools and drill bits.

I finally finished the beetle/bug quilt. I think I started it in June 2oo7. It is a costume order for a couple who collect the real thing, VW beetles. I like how it turned out. My favorite is the pink/orange convertible on the left.
Measurements: 36 X 41 1/2 ins.

We went to the farms market yesterday. I loved it, it was the first time I had been and I will be going there again. Here is a picture of some veggies/fruit I got. I've already eaten half of the black berries. I also got snap beans, but they are cooking on the stove.
Lit Jo found a rock there and called it his treasure. When we got home he wanted to paint it, so he did. Blue with yellow dots. :o)

I had never made a top before. I saw this so cute pattern by "Amy Butler" in my local quilt shop and thought I'd give it a try. I picked out some pretty blue and brown fabric. ( blues and brown seem to be my favorite right now).
It took awhile to figure the pattern out because I had no clue what I was doing, but it was a lot of fun. I love working with fabric and sewing.
I got to use my "zipper foot" for the first time. OH....that's how that thing works. LOL . I can't wait to wear it out. I am even thinking of making another one.

I have collected 2 of these toy sewing machines. I think they are the cutest things. I was a child in the 70's and I remember coloring in my Holly Hobby coloring book.
Also my pincushion collections. I love that there are so many different and cute pincushions out there. The blue chicken was my mom's pincushion from when I was little, I remember her using it. The little cupcake/icecream cone pincushion on the right is from a swap. A sweet lady from Canada sent it to me.

I figured out how to post a photo. Here is the beetle quilt I am working on. It is for a couple that I don't even know. She e-mailed me and said she was interested in a beetle quilt. I think it's turning out cute. I think my favorite is the pink/orange convertible on the left.
This blog thing is all so new to me. I am trying to figure things out and I am having a hard time. What are all these symbols and names? Oh my. I love to post pictures, but don't know how yet. I guess I will learn over time and get better at this. When I do figure this out , I will post a pic of the very cute beelte quilt I am working on.
