Busy, Busy, Busy

I didn't do much sewing in March because I spent a couple of weeks with this little sweetheart.
Rileigh lives way too far away from grandma.  So all my time there I was enjoying and spoiling her.
But there was hand work being done in the car riding to her house and home.  I finally finished my charming star quilt and gave it to my friend for her birthday.
I sewed on lots of Beads of Courage bags.  When I returned home I gave 20 bags to Cincinnati Children's Hospital.  I probably still have another 50 to finish.  I alway take these with me so I have something to work on when I have an extra moment.
And this little one was so glad we returned home so she could be rescued from being boarded.

Nina got a new dog bed yesterday because she chewed up the old one.  The joys of having a puppy.

I have been sewing since I came home.  I made chemo hats.  I am still looking for an easy pattern to make hats using light weight fabric to make them.   If you have one please share the information with me.
I made a baby quilt, blocks for a QOV quilt and I am sewing blocks for a retirement quilt but no rainbow blocks.  I hope to have these finish soon so I can share them with you.

The Hands2Help charity challenge started while I was away.  It is a fun challenge for a very worthwhile charities.  Please take a look at Confessions of a Fabric Addict to read about it.  It is not to late to join.  Today there is a great tutorial over at Sarah's.



  1. Looks like you've been making up for lost time with all you've been doing! Thanks for the shout-out!!

  2. I saw your charming stars quilt and for a minute I thought it was mine! LOL Congrats on getting it finished! :0)

  3. Wow! Home from your trip already! Time sure passes quickly. Glad you had such a good time with that little sweetie! Thanks for the 'Hands to Help' link. I love your Charming Stars quilt, esp. how the center of the stars is a slightly different color than the points. Really makes a nice statement!
