Hello Dear Friends
Welcome to my humble blog.
There is not much going on.
Just working on hand-quilting
my 35 year old quilt top.
I think after 35 years
it's time to get it done, LOL.
Also I spied this adorable
little sign on

Those of you that follow me
know that my time away from the
house as well as my budget
are both on the tight side :)
So I went out to Steve's
shop and gathered what I needed
to make a budget copy.
Thanks for stopping by
a very warm and special
to all of you that are praying
for my Sweet Steve.
God Bless You All!
Your blogging sister,
I love your creativity, Connie! You are always making something beautiful.ReplyDelete
So cute and cheery for a cold winter day.ReplyDelete
You don't need to spend money when you have the gift of creativity.
That is a great sign! Good job! I can't wait to see the finished quilt. Beautiful!ReplyDelete
So much needlecraft going into that pretty quilt.ReplyDelete
Well done with your sign, it looks very professional, Connie.
Hi Connie, your 35 year project is coming along well! As always, sending good wishes to you both.ReplyDelete
Your embroidery is beautiful! And I love the sign!ReplyDelete
Connie, your stitching is so neat and pretty. I love the buttons and trim you are adding to the sunbonnet girls. That quilt is going to be so cute. Can't wait to see this one finished. Love that little sigh too, it just goes with you pretty mantle and fireplace.ReplyDelete
Fun stitching!!! I love your new homemade sign. Clever!!!ReplyDelete
Sweet, sweet quilt..and lovely mantel..ReplyDelete
Your embroidery is coming along well and it's looking lovely. I like that little sign you made about winter melting into spring! So uplifting.ReplyDelete
Your both often in my thoughts!
How could your January mantle be any more beautiful! I love it! Seeing your work on the "old" quilt is giving me the urge to embroidery something. Those little girls look so delightful in their wonderfully embellished little frocks!ReplyDelete
I like your "budget copy" just fine.ReplyDelete
The quilting and embroidering are so lovely too!
I adore that sign and may just copy you on it. I'm glad you're staying inside and warm. Are you supposed to get the snow we are on Friday? Right now the prediction for us is 8-10 inches.ReplyDelete
How is Steve and how are YOU? I pray for you both daily. So does Dennis. I hope you can feel my hugs and love.
There's more going on there than there is here. I haven't worked on any projects lately. Your quilt is looking great and that sign is wonderful.ReplyDelete
Love that little sign!ReplyDelete
Hi Connie- A Happy New Year 2020 to You and Steve. Love the Sign you have made - you sure are very Crafty- love the Mantel and it's decorations too. Best Wishes. KEV.ReplyDelete
Connie, the first quilt I ever bought (not made, but bought) was a hand quilted Holly Hobby for our daughter when she was about 3. It basically fell apart over the years as it was used by both my daughter and grand daughter. It didn't have all the cute "add ons" that yours has, but we loved it. Quilting is a great way to get through those cold winter days.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful sign!! Sending prayers for your hubby xoReplyDelete
Your hand-quilting and embroidery are fabulous, Connie. Love your little sign too. xxReplyDelete
So glad you are staying warm and cozy in your sweet home. I absolutely LOVE your f/p and mantel every time I see it! It is still in my "wish book" of what I want for our f/p!! The sign is so perfect.. I like the idea of using a permanent marker rather than painting the words. And your quilt.. is oh so darling and so neat that you are stitching by hand. I used to do that on smaller things and it is very restful. We may get some snow tonight or tomorrow night, so maybe you will too! A light sprinkling would be OK, but not much more. I've been on a real "roll" making some fabric Christmas gift sacks.. so fun and I can't stop! Hugs to you and Steve... MarilynReplyDelete
What a nice little sign you made as you wait for spring.ReplyDelete
I don't like to hurry winter along though, I'm one who really does enjoy the winter and snow!
Hi Connie!! Oh your stitching adds the perfect amount of adorable! And it looks fun to do too! (BTW...the best signs are those that are homemade:)ReplyDelete
Hi Connie, Your hand stitching is beautiful. I don't know how you have the patience to do that! Turning Burr weather here again. Dentist appointment today. Have to have a tooth pulled. Ugh. Hugs, NancyReplyDelete
Your quilt is coming along great, I love the stitching you are doing on the pieces :)ReplyDelete
I am always amazed how you always come up with great projects with what you have around the house, great job on that sign!
Your 35 year old quilt is a treasure and will be even more wonderful when finished. Your mantel is so pretty. Enjoy the soft glow. Hugs to you, and prayers for Steve.ReplyDelete
Not much going on here either. I rather like your take on the sign. I like the photos of your hand stitching. So pretty.ReplyDelete
I am truly loving your 35 year project! Sunbonnet Sue brings back so many memories. I sure wish I could write so straight like you. You did a wonderful job on the sign! And I am already ready for those winter days to melt into spring, haha. Your mantel is very pretty. Stay warm and cozy this weekend~ReplyDelete
Wonderful rendition of that sign ! I can just picture you all snug and cozy in that sweet home of yours, working on a lifetime quilt! Beautiful job there too !ReplyDelete
thankyou connie for your lovely comment, I told himself and he beamed, lolReplyDelete
I notice that you use your serger for edging the motifs to be stitched on the quilt, I've never thought of doing this, I must give it a try. thanks for the tip.
Actual I don't have a serger; I did that with the zigzag stitch on my sewing machine. Thanks for stopping by to visit, I love company;)Delete
Your work is so lovely, Connie. Can you possibly send me your email address? Mine is firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you, ConnieReplyDelete
Your quilt is coming along beautifully Connie, you do SUCH beautiful hand stitching work! Praying for you and Steve. I didn't know if you had an update, as Diana had mentioned your situation on her most recent blog post. I pray that the Lord undertakes with a great healing for Steve! Your sign is darling, looks so cozy above your fire! Are you getting all this snow? We have gotten a bunch this weekend. So pretty watching it fall! Many blessings to you sweet friend, and continuing in prayer for you!ReplyDelete
Your hand quilting is superb, Connie, and I love the sign. As always, you have an idea and make it happen. Fantastic! I continue to pray for Steve, and for you. Hugs to you both. NancyReplyDelete
Your quilt looks beautiful, good luck on finishing it. You will be thrilled when it's complete. Praying for you and Steve.ReplyDelete
I forgot to mention that I love your sign, it turned out great!ReplyDelete
Your mantle is beautiful and I love your sign! Your quilts look so cozy Connie! :)ReplyDelete
Your little sign turned out just right.ReplyDelete
Love seeing all those sweet images of your lovely quilt. Your winter mantel looks so inviting.ReplyDelete
