MIA Mondays…

I keep forgetting to take pictures of all that I’ve done, (or should have done)…
This weekend I finished this on point 9 patch star top. My friend Ellen and I cut the strips for this 3 years ago, LOL I think its about time I got mine sewn. Stills needs to be quilted. I’ll  put it in the “To Be Quilted” pile, and see if the quilt fairies take care of that for me.

A girl can wish can’t she. I really like this pattern.
Another finish for June’s UFO challenge at Quilting Adventures I’m calling it Looking Back. I really enjoyed adding all the beads. I should do more of this, its fun and its small 12×18.

unbelievable weather

The perfect summer day, highs in the mid 70. But it won’t be long before its 95 or higher…
Worked on my June UFO, I always forget how long it takes to do bead work, until I get into it. I spent a good bit of time deciding on what I wanted to do and then more time finding the right beads. I made 3 small mirrors (3/4″) encircled with beads and sewed them onto the surface. Then I started adding beads, beads and more beads to make them look and feel like they belong…still have 2 more to do but I like where its going. Another couple of days and I should be done…
