One of these days..

I am going to be true to my promise to update my blog regularly or at least more often! 
I enjoy reading the blogs I follow but skip  mine totally... 

I was off last week to take care    
Hubby after his surgery and I did  get to sew ..

First project was this machine appliqued quilt.  
Pattern "Blessings Baskets" by Jan Patek in
the fabric "Hemming House" by Brannock and Patek. 

Then I machine embroidered a welcome on burlap  
for my long

 door window ..
Here is what the letters look like

 Fringed the burlap to make it more country style
and sewed them on a piece of Buggy Barn fabric.

This is a busy week ... Today is Shrove Tuesday so I am thinking homemade blueberry pancakes and a big batch of
peanut butter fudge and  for an evening treat I am thinking chocolate...
Tomorrow we enter into Lent with Ash Wednesday.. 
 as the saying goes L.O.V.E is in the air with Valentines Day on Thursday
Heart  table topper is brought out and proudly displayed; "indoors" on the kitchen table.  

Happy celebrations !


  1. So happy to see you post, Joan. Sending hugs to your hubby. Hope he is doing well.

    Question: How'd you like embroidering on Burlap? Do you see the stabilizer underneath? The reason I ask is that I recently purchased some burlap and want to start using some in projects.

    Have a wonderful Tuesday.

  2. Hope your hubby is feeling better. You really have been busy. The Welcome strip looks very nice. I would love to see a close-up.

  3. I've been watching for your blog, and I've been wondering where you were. I'm glad you're back, and the surgery is behind your dear husband. Your quilt and sign are both beautiful.

  4. I hope hubby is all better. I thought your life just got too busy with your guild to visit us in blogland. You've been working on some beautiful projects.

  5. Thank you for the close-ups. The letters turned out beautifully on burlap.

  6. Wow, what a beautiful quilt! Love it! Happy Valentine's Day to you!
