Been busy with the kids out of school, Father's Day weekend and planning a quick trip to see my grandson for the very first time!
((((Oh Boysieee!!)))))
Can't wait....  Sold two baby quilts on Etsy to help with some bills so it's cutting out
to be a good start to Summer :)

I also made a Little Girls party dress and a new digitized France Linework Blocks set!

I know,
I said that I'd post Saturday about the quilt process.
Just was not up to the weather but have finished all that today ;)

The pictures and information with links for tutorials
which go along with the steps taken in the quilt's creation
are up right now, on the "projects" page.
 Just use the navigation bar above to get there.
Hope your day is stitchin' along smoothly with no broken needles or thread ;)

I finished a baby quilt yesterday and finally got it listed up on my Etsy store.
Not bad for only the second quilt I've ever made that is not a rag quilt.
(I might be getting the hang of this)

I don't feel well today so I'm not going to post the pictoral progress that
I recorded throughout the making of the quilt but will do that tomorrow hopefully.

I will also have the pictures of how I closed the binding.

For now though, I am posting just to check in and assure that I have not gone awol
from my blog.

Here are pictures of the front and back of the quilt:

The front is an x's and o's pattern with a frame of strips and the back has an x and o for a hug and a kiss ;) It ended up being 35" x 35" square.
(and I only broke 8 needles meandering)
(cringe- I'll explain later) 
 On a positive note:
The polyester thread worked beautifully.

I would adore your thoughts on
what you think of the added strips on the front
and if it was too much extra on the back and also...
      How you price your quilts?!

This weekend I started a new quilt using the x's and o's tutorial video over at - I found it doing a search for ideas on what can be done
with charm packs.

I'll post some progress pictures and as promised, when I get to the binding
portion, I'll show you how I close mine.

Something else I managed to get done between last night and this afternoon,
is a brand new embroidery designs linework set called Pedigree Dogs.
I've done them in both 4x4 and 5x7 sizes. They are up on my embroidery site and also
for sale on Etsy at both sizes for the price of one.

Here is a picture of the set if you are interested :)
