Halloween quilt

Here is the quilt I made for my quilt guild secret sister for October. I had the pre cut shapes that already had fusible on them. I just arranges them and machine button holed around the shapes. I quilted it with a pumpkin vine pattern I made up as I went along.

my birthday!

I had a great birthday today! I went to lunch with my youngest daughter. She also got me some clothes for my birthday. My hubby got me a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
Aren't they gorgeous!
My eldest daughter came over on Saturday with the Grandkids. They brought me a bouquet of sunflowers which I added together to my hubby's bouquet. They also got me a balloon and a Starbucks gift card and kitty fabric.
Here are some fabrics I got from my online group C-R-A-F-T. I am in the birthday swap where you send two fat quarters to each person signed up. I put down florals and batiks. Great fabrics aren't they!
I had a great birthday!!!

For our friend Judy

What I have been doing for a week!!

Okay, the fabric was getting a little messy on my shelves. Not a lot mind you. So I straightened one pile. Well of course the rest looked really bad now and I went on refolding and straightening all my fabric. I do get myself into these cleaning situations sometimes. At least it looks all neat now. Till I decide to use it and have to go thru it all and mess it up again! LOL
