So, I have been gradually finishing up some things siting around.  My trip home for 2 family reunions was cut short because my family caught Covid.  When we got well enough to travel home, we were just sitting around not very energetic.

but, I did do some sewing every day to give myself therapy.  I finished up a mini - from a very long time ago!  The quilting was almost done.  But I quilted the borders and got it bound.  My foot give you an idea of the size!  


i also finally got the binding done on this quilt that I pattern checked for Shout 4joy quilter……I know some of you have done her mystery scrap quilts.   

i also got two more placemats finished.  These are a longtime project of English pped  dresdan plates that I have been doing.  I got 2 more done.

I got to have a sew day with Carrie and Cathy today!  Cathy made us lunch from a recipe from Carolyn!  Yummy, yummy!

i sewed 2 charity tops from blocks given to me from the guild.  Long ago I did a disappearing pinwheel with the group.  The first top of dotted  blocks given to me after to do something with….( lol, just what I need!).   The second one are mostly blocks from my demonstration. I may add borders, but I’m not sure what I have ….

Boy, all those quilts look very nice, Ellen!   What a nice sense of accomplishment to get them finished.  :-)

Viola, you sound very productive for charities. Could you send more information on the first two you listed? These are new to me.

I enjoy making charity projects and thinking of the people who will receive them.

Thanks for you help


I love your row quilt, so cute.

how cute!  Thanks for sharing with us.  Would you mind posting close ups of the blocks?  Would love to see how they are constructed, especially the fence & wagons.

I am going to a local retreat in two weeks so I had put together 3 I spy kits to work on.  But I really wanted some "mindless" sewing last week and made one of the kits. 


So now I need to replace that kit as the other two will go together super fast - I don't want to run out of things to do.  I looked through my idea binder and didn't see anything I wanted to work.  Then I flipped through my 2 I spy scrapbooks for patterns I wanted to make again and found several.  So now I'm on a marathon cutting spree.  When I'm done I will have 9 kits - yes way too many for the retreat.  But plenty to keep me busy for a few months.  smile

Thank you! I found the fence pattern on and purchased the wagon pattern from an etsy seller.

I recently finished the Farm Quilt and got it mailed off to my sister for her charity.  Here it is, front and back; I almost like the stray chicken on the back better than anything on the front.  LOL!

I like your stray on the back too.  I had meant to do that with a random rocking horse for my Christmas quilt but I forgot all about it until I was going thru my crap basket last night - oh well, too late now.
