Cemetery Angels

Something about fall makes me want to go wander around the Allegheny Cemetery and look at all the angels. It seems like such a peaceful place compared to the rest of the city and I think partly it feels more like home to me with the quiet and the trees. I have been taking some pictures of the angels. I think they would look neat blown up and framed, but I haven't done that yet. It seems wierd to want to hang that in your house. There's something about the angels and the buildings that is cool though.

Log Cabin Style Quilted Pilllow

I had a leftover block from a baby quilt I made awhile ago, so today I finally got around to making another pillow from it and listed it on Etsy.

Little Pillows

I had a couple blocks left over from that baby quilt that I made several weeks ago - apparently I was having trouble counting at the time. Anyway. I thought they would make a cute little pair of pillows, and after staring at them on the back of my couch for a few weeks, I finally sewed a back on them and stuffed them and listed them on Etsy. I hope someone wants them!

Custom work I'm slowly getting done

I have an order for several custom items that I've been working on and I managed to get some work done today and took some pictures.

These are flour sack kitchen towels monogrammed.

This is one of 3 quilts that I'm making for the same order. I've got the other 2 mostly done. Just have a bit more quilting and then I can add on the binding and they'll be finished.

Pretty Flowers

I don't have much of anything else to show you right now, but I thought I'd share these instead. Actually, I have been doing some work and will take pictures in a day or two to post.

I've done nothing, but. . .

I haven't done a single thing since the last time I posted. I mailed off the baby quilt I just finished, but that is the extent of my accomplishments in this arena. I intend to baste and start quilting that chocolate & ivory one today though.

BUT. I've said it before, but it must be repeated. You must visit Heather Bailey. She's teasing with her luscious photos and I for one am impatient to see the whole thing. She's got quilt tops pieced from the new fabric line, but you only get a peek.

Another One Down

I had a fit of productivity in the quilting department and basted, quilted and bound this little guy yesterday. Didn't get anything else done, but ya know.
