New Penguin Cheer Block

If you read my blog, you know that I got myself into a block of the month with some friends awhile back. I finished this month's block yesterday (just in time for our deadline). This one is a big one, but it was an easy one because of the size of the pieces.

If you want to follow along and try your hand at this block of the month, the patterns are here.

I also finished an art piece yesterday but didn't get a picture taken of it. I'll take the picture before too long and post it.

New Cap

I know it has been awhile, but I have been on the road most of the spring and summer. Traveling with my husband, going to quilt shows (Paducah and Chicago), a family vacation with my kids and ALL my grandchildren, babysitting with my grandson, and traveling to Arkansas to visit my son and his family have made trips to my studio far too infrequent. I AM working on some pieces--another "extreme" embroidery piece, a quilt to hand quilt for my granddaughter, a quilt for my daughter, and a quilt for a friend who had a fire at her home. All of these are in various stages of completion.

Today, I worked on my new baseball cap. It was plain white when I bought it, and (of course) I can't have that! I decorated it with some of my Zentangles, and I sure like it better.

Drawing my "doodles" is really relaxing. Give it a try.

I Think It Was a Hit!

Tomorrow is my granddaughter's ninth birthday. We got to be in Arkansas for the celebration held earlier this evening. I gave her a fleece panda bear rag quilt. I think she liked it! Happy Birthday Bianca!

(The quilt isn't standing on its husband is holding it up!)

All of the grandkids have gotten quilts now, but when the other girls saw this one, I got requests for a cat quilt and a monkey quilt!
