A Little Quilting and a Lot of Sewing

January 26, 2009

I have been pretty busy lately working on some ordered baby quilts and making Miss Elly some dresses. The quilts were nothing special, but the dresses turned out pretty cute. I’m having a hard time making myself quilt when I’d rather be making dresses for Miss Elly. My dh keeps asking me just how many dresses does one little girl need and I keep telling him as many as I can make.  I’ve already ordered fabric for her Easter dress and can’t wait for it to arrive. I have the design of the dress in mind and am anxious to get started.

Here are a few of the latest dresses. I didn’t take pictures of the last batch I sent. I just wish I could go up and spend a few days cuddling but with the weather issues (pond chopping duties) I can’t get away. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get up there in the next couple of weeks.

Here is the latest quilt I worked on. I have another to put on the frame tomorrow but it’s a panel quilt so it will go fast. Then I can get back to my dresses.

That’s it for tonight. The weather is really bad. We’ve had freezing rain off and on since this afternoon and they are calling for 1″ to 3″ tomorrow. It should be fun chopping ponds in the morning. If we lose power, I have a dress I’m smocking on to keep me occupied until I can get back to my machine. I can use the machine with the generator but really don’t like to do it.  I was told I could use the Fun Quilter with the generator but I don’t think I want to take that chance. So, I’ll just smock away if we lose power.

Stay warm and cozy and Happy Quilting!
