Back to Quilting

It's not that I haven't had anything to post but it wasn't very quilty. I have finally finished school. Yes, I am a college graduate!!! YEAH!!!!! I now have extra time on my hands and I have great plans on what to do with it. Haven't started any of them yet ( not really) but hopefully soon. Mostly I have started catching up on my sleep. Don't know how I am going to make up for three years but my body is trying! I have some pictures to share.

This was the ring bearers pillow that I made for my niece's wedding. I was so pleased with how it turned out. I used more beads than I have ever used but it was beautiful. The wedding was incredible and we all had just the best time!

I have been wanting to make a bag since I have seen so many of them on other blogs. This is my first attempt. I gave it to my sister as a very small thank you for all that she did to help me through school. Whenever I make something I try to make one for her too. I am working on my bag next.

I read so many interesting blogs and I have decided that I need to sew more so that I have more to blog about. So I'm signing off and getting started on the first redwork project (that I am doing in blue) that I have ever tried. I'll post a pic soon!

A little knowledge....

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. I have wanted for sometime to change the header of my blog. I want to come up with something but didn't have a clue where to start. In reading a blog there was a link to a vlog that gave instructions on how to do this. So off I went, totally unprepared because I didn't have a picture ready. I did have a picture of my baby Bea so I tried this. However, the picture is so big and I don't know how to fix that part. Some I guess that I am making progress but still have a ways to go. It's been a long time since I have posted but I will get pics up of what I have been doing. But now I have got to get back to my blocks!
