It's nice to be back in blogland after being away for over a week. While I was away my husband said I rec'd a package from Germany and I said, "Oh! that must be where my pincushion partner is from!" Arriving home I found my parcel waiting for me and as soon as I opened the box I knew I got spoiled! Look how sweet she had everything wrapped :o)

I just love the pincushion and all the special goodies that came with it. Now, this pincushion really is special. The roof flaps lift on both side..one side you can use as the pincushion and the other has felt to store your needles, too cute!!
Thank-you soooooo much Suzie from littlebusybee.blogspot.com :o)

I made a baby quilt for a girl at work. I think it turned out sweet. I just wished a had enough ric rac to go all the way around(I LOVE ric rac!!). Anyways, It looks nice just being used on the top and bottom. The squares are made from charm packs(Simplicity by Moda).
Although I have a long way to go on achieving perfection with maching quilting, I was pretty proud of my job on this one. I was just going to stipple but thought I would be more creative :o)
Cute little Label. I just used steam a seam and hand blanket stiched around.

I was washing my daughter bedding yesterday and after hanging this quilt on the line I thought I would take a pic to show you. This is one of my earlier quilts that I made about 4-5 years ago. She has outgrown sunbonnet sue and uses it as an "extra" for the winter months. Hopefully summer will officially be here soon so we can lose a layer of blankets on our beds!

The blocks were pre-stamped blocks that I cross-stitched and embroidered.

Side view.
I never did get my lap quilt quilted yet, but I do have a baby quilt all basted and ready to be quilted. It's for a girl at work who is having a baby girl. I am hoping to have it complete by tomorrow night or sat.
