Qults mom made and a quilt I will make for great nephew

My mom made this as a surprise for me in May of 2009..I have not used it yet as not sure if I wanted to give to my first granddaughter as I have another one made for her but not the 3 princess one.. this is a close up..I had asked her when she showed me when she had it basted, boy I was surprised..and chose a metallic gold thread she quilted by hand and she did have trouble but I think she did great..I love my quilt!! Also been saving up anything and everything to do with the 3 Princesses but mostly Cinderella when I can just find her..lol the little girl in me.


Here it is finished..May 10, 2009..from my mom to me..




I did buy fabric for my first granddaughters quilt in 2008 when mom was busy making the "Dutch Girl" and she did not want anything to do with Sue Bonnet Sue..I had some really old quilting books and also looked online and she wanted this one..called "The Dutch Girl" I also bought extras so she could make it larger for a twin bed for those colder nights..lol..Mine is a bit different that the others..I bought most of the fabrics for the quilts mom made..not any more..she still has Jensen and Jason's to make..she's been waiting for me to fix her machine but I haven't because she get weak but I think I will now as she does need to do something.. Sorry the photos are from me hanging them on my designing wall in Studio 2 and it was hard with back and knee problems but could not get dh to help me last night..but no matter how it hangs it is beautiful..I will give it to Sophie when she is ready to go into her bed..it is wrapped properly and in my closet.






Here is the full quilt hanging the best I could on my own..if dh is willing to help I can remove this one later on and put up a better one, but I do not think it is needed..as you can see the beauty of it..just click on all the photos to make it larger..mom quilts her quilts by hand and appliques the blanket stitch around every piece of the Dutch Girl.








I am going to make this quilt for great nephew who is due in March of next year... would have loved to have made it for Sophie but they had that room the way they wanted it and nothing else..so I did not bother too..yes I bought the slashing fabric the rest I will use my tons of fabrics that I have already..It is from Ruth Blanchet's site Arbee's Designs by a designer name Jennifer Houlden. I will make it to fit a twin size bed also so will make it to accommodate the size..Another beauty..hugs and have a nice week..Lorraine

Almost done and still have the cap to do

I should be done with this by the end of the weekend and than I can start the cap. I sew the body and sleeves together after it is finished knitted, which to me in not important, been tempted a few times..I usually have 3 knitted items to knit..and also other things to do in between. This one hurts my tendinitis on my thumbs and wrist..so I go to larger needle items and it does not hurt as bad...so I can get a lot done. Since I am almost to the point of putting my red purse in the washer machine, I started my lit sister's purse...hot pink with metal handles..have to still find them online...my lavender purse will have to wait till I can find d rings with clamps before I can finished that one or make a handle with the yarn instead..not in the hurry to make that decision yet. going to eat a small and late lunch and take a nap..could not sleep to well worrying about my dil..hugs, Lorraine

My sister in law Kathy had this photo of my brother Don with his fish he caught..boy it looks good..sorry Don I am not good as what type fish looks like..was it is..lol love you so much and miss you..love to all Lorraine

Diaper Stacker pattern/Dr appts

These are the fabrics I choose to see what color I will add the initial S on the top of the diaper stacker..The fabric above will be on the bottom about 12 and on the top. the middle will be white..

This is the pattern finally found one I wanted..I made mine for both of my sons, one is going to be 40 in dec..lol..

Tomorrow I will be going to my last dietitian apt..could not make it for the last month.

Went to the Dr on wed..first one was my eye specialist and well, you won't believe it because I am still having problem believing it..I have a mold in my right eye...when he told me, the first thing that came to mind, dahhhhhhhh, was the mold we get in the bathrooms..lol than of course I realized he was talking about molds on our body to make sure I understood him I kept pointing to all of them on my arms, and few on my face..we have to keep an eye on it to make sure it does not grow..it could become something else.. Went and had my ultra sound that afternoon and I think I might be OK because she kept on saying oh that's good..she check my left, right kidneys, my bladder and under my belly..so a lot of photos was done..she told if it was serious my Dr would call..well I did not get a call so I feel pretty good..Have a great weekend..hugs to all..Lorraine

PS..will put up a few photos from the shower I gave tomorrow..they are so cute..
