The weekend

This is what I got done over the weekend.... My Mr. & Mrs. Claus's house block from the "Welcome to the North Pole" book . Pattern by Piece O' Cake Designs. I think this is my 4th block finished. I'd like to have it done by December so I can hang it on the wall for Christmas.

Two embroideries done for my camping quilt. This one is from a "bareroots" pattern.

And I started a new quilt today. My best friend from high school has been begging me for years and years to make her a quilt. She asked again the other day and I finially gave in. She wants a cowboy boot quilt. I told her I would only do a crib size. This is what I have so far.

I took the kids to make tie-dye T-shirts today at the quilt shop, Quilting Adventures. Monica taught them and they had so much fun. The shirts are still in the bag waiting 24 hours before we can open them. So my next post will probably be the results of the cool tie-dye class. Thanks Monica, your a great teacher.

Busy woman, as usual! I took our shirts out of the bags so I could hang them to dry. But they haven't been washed yet. And my fingers are quite orangey-red!

Ugh. I edited this comment for a typo and now there's a big "this comment has been deleted by the author" note. It makes it look like I unleashed a torrent of curse words or something. Really, I didn't!

Wwo, antother house, I am still working on my third. But I think you do them on machine (if I have looked at the picture correctly) and I do tehm by hand, so it gives you an advantage. I so much love your colors!
I think you should be able to get cowboy boot fabrics somewhere, wouldn't that be awesome?

I am always just in awe of your gorgeous quilting/embroidery projects, Amy! You do such an amazing job on all of them -- it just leaves me dizzy with all of the work that goes into these labors of love!
