Happy Hallow Progress

I am down to completing block 8 for the happy hallow quilt. It is about half done and will be completed tomorrow as I spend an hour with Sarah at the speech therapist. So yesterday I got a start on putting the quilt itself together. Sorry about the terrible photo:

Once block eight is complete it will go on the bottem right and then I will move on to completing the first inner boarder. Once all the boarders are on it will be time to embrodier the spider webs in the four corners of the middle boarder and then off to be quilted. Have not yet decided how I will do that...any ideas welcomed.

A Purse for Me

I had every intention yesterday of completing block 7 for the halloween quilt as it is nearly completed. I got distracted with this project however:

It is bag C from Simplicity's 2617 with Fig Tree's Dandelion Girl and linen

More Finishes

With just two more to complete I will have to soon find something else for my on the go bag. It feels so good to be getting this project completed after having the supplies for seven years. Thankfully this is not a habit of mine.

Happy Hallow 4

Finish stitching block 4 of my Happy Hallow quilt last night. It is the biggest block in the set of eight so I know it is all down hill from here. So excited to be finally doing this project.

Have also been sewing Easter dresses for the girls this week. Nearly complete and loving them.

For Kelsey

One of the nieces is getting baptized here soon and her mom asked if I would make a dress for her. They are coming by tomorrow to make sure it fits and I hope they like it. I used Simplicity's 5645 for it with a lace overlay on the skirt.

A Few For The Week

Just a couple things completed this week. A dress for Miss Sarah, although the pleats in it did not show up in the photographs:

A tea towel as a thank you to a lady from church who brought us dinner Weds. night after Miss Sarah spent the morning at the hospital having a procedure done. The design was one of Bird Brain's free designs last year:

And the third stitchery for the Happy Hallow quilt:
