Tabletopper Quilted

Well here is another UFO done. It was a tin of square by Moda and pieced and sewn and machine quilted by me. It was a nice and easy fast and fun project.

Hope you like it too. It can be used on a end table or anywhere you would like.

High Desert Bead Society Round Robin

The High Desert Bead Society is doing this round robin starting this Saturday at our meeting.
Six ladies will bead on her and then we'll put their names in a basket and drawing the winning name to win the doll completely hand beaded. It should be tons of fun.

The girls that will be beading on her are:

Ruth Osborne, Dian Moore, Paulette Smith, Paula Euell, and Alice Perkins, all of the Prescott and surrounding area's.

Good luck girls in this fun project. I will be posting updates on this doll as it goes around.

Doll form made by our own Rhonda Kivett. Thanks Rhonda, great doll.

Back of Global Warming doll

And here is her back.

Global Warming Doll

This is a doll for our Global Warming Doll Bead along on my BAD yahoo group.
It was headed up by Robin Atkins, one of her dreams to do someday and thought we all would like to contribute to her cause...

The form was made for me by Susan Feldcamp, a bead friend from Mesa Arizona and is made of felt. It was fun to bead on felt, I never did this before. Thank you Susan for such a wonderful gift.

The bottom of the snow is all in various colors of white, in ll' seed beads

And the tips of the branches are called ICE in l5's, love those l5's for my dolls.

It was a fun project.

Alicia's Princess Quilt

Here is a picture of my g/daughter's Alicia's Princess quilt. Aren't all little girls into this Princess theme these days!

My daughter picked out the fabric and now have to wait for my turn with the machine quilter.

Alicia will love it for sure. Its smaller than a twin size, more like a throw for over her bed. The quilting will really really make this quilt. I can't wait to get it quilted.

Quilted table runners

And here are some pictures of two quilted table runners I finally got the bindings on.
I've had them for many, many, months, another UFO done.

Progress on Rock

Well I thought it was time you saw some pictures of my Beaded Rock, which as you saw many posts ago, it really is my d/h's sponge he used to wash his car with.

Its going very slow for me because I hardly have time to work on this. But hopefully, by posting some progress pictures, it will keep me going.

Hope you like it, its great fun to work on and I have no idea where it all is going!

Rose of Sharon

Well I was just going to the sewing/beading room and looked at my flower garden and thought you all have to see my Rose of Sharon, its getting so tall and the best blooms we have had yet since we lived here, which is 6 years this past June. We have to keep wire around them because of the deer, arent they everywhere!

HAPPY 4th of July


Please keep our soldiers in your prayers in these uncertain times.

Were going to a 4th of July party later tonight when the sun sets, listen to music there, they all play different instruments and then watch the fireworks.

Hope you all have a safe 4th of July.
