Has It Been A Week Already?!!!

Great turned photo! (sigh) It has been a very busy week for me so I haven't taken much time to visit blogs or post on my own for that matter. The above photo is just a little peek of something in the works that I will reveal on my next post. (promise Cheryl) It is that time of year again when the hummingbirds are back so why not in my quilting too.
This is a glimpse of a quilt from Della for her grandaughter. Originally Della said she would like frogs but then decided on hearts and loops. Her grandaughter is into frogs at the moment...gosh this would have been equally cute with frogs leaping across the top.


Carol's Sweet Spot quilt was done earlier last week. Hope your feeling better today Carol!


Fun mail and a win from Cheryl. Darling table topper, appliqued kitchen towel and who doesn't love chocolate? Cheryl also sent one of those cards that you open and it makes noise. I opened it and liked to come out of my pants. It was so unexpected yet so funny. Wished I could have seen me!


Another fun parcel from a Liz Scott. These fabrics are so unlike anything that I would buy or have in my stash so I'm really looking forward to trying something different with them. Still trying to figure out what that something different might be. These came through a giveaway that Stefanie had and I won!

I realize I haven't shown much of what I have been up to these past weeks. Trust me when I say I've been quilting alot. I'm anxious to share glimpses with you and spill more details.....soon!

You have my attention with that first picture. Will be looking forward to the reveal on that one. :)
Love the other quilts - lovely, lovely quilting as usual! Hope your weekend is a good one. :)

Gerri said...

What beautiful quilting. You are one talented woman!

Carol said...

Wonderful quilting as always. I agree frogs hopping across the quilt would have been very cute. If I could get over the sore throat I would be very happy, hopefully soon.

Karen said...

I LOVE that quilted hummingbird - how adorable - can't wait to see the rest :).

Oh I love hummingbirds and your quilted hummingbird is too sweet! That is just so lovely!!

Looks like you have been busy and when that happens, blogging just has to be put on the back burner.

Congratulations on your win of the giveaway!

I'm so lucky--it's my quilt that Mary put the hummingbird on (plus lots of other wonderful little creatures, which I've already seen previews of.) Just amazing! Mary, I absolutely love your ideas! Can't wait to see the rest!

The hummmingbird is just perfect and I love the quilting you did on the pink and green quilt, too. I've seen people make those egg table runners and carrot-shaped ones, too.....CUTE!
