lydia & sylvia

YIKES!  it has already been a couple weeks since Quilt Minnesota finished up.  we meant to get sylvia rolling again, but it has been crazy.  we spent the first week recouping from a busy–busy 17 days.  the Thursday after Quilt MN my designer sister, Tina, took part in the RAW natural artists fashion show down in Minneapolis.  didn’t get home until about 3 am then to bed around 4 am.  needless to say, we are all still a little tired.  we wrapped up QM on Monday and as section leaders we will be part of the panel that picks out QM14 fabric in a month or so!  Mel flew out to Boston on Wednesday and has been hopping around the New England states since then.

i have taken up cross-stitch.  right now i have 1 over half finished and another waiting patiently to be started.  these are both kitted and ready to go.  i’ll be listing them in the etsy shoppe early next week.  below is Violet’s Blue by Blackbird Designs.


we got in some wonderful new civil war prints and mom whipped up a new civil war lovely which is named Lydia (which is named after my Great-Great Aunt who lives in Jamestown, ND and is 104 years old and still lives at home alone.)  we don’t have her quilted yet, but i do have pictures.


lastly…sylvia…which mom had finished on Thursday, but i haven’t had a chance to get a post done.  below is Oklahoma Dogwood, Old Maid’s Puzzle, and Orange Peel.sylvia orange

next week…Pineapple, Pinwheel 1 and Pinwheel 2.

have a wonderful weekend!

happy stitching!
