Christmas projects

The red scarf and hat were made for Kim. I love this scarf pattern. The hat with ear flaps was made for Lori. She loved it! I made the origami crane for the tree. Lots of pausing of the video as I made each fold... I love it!

Early Christmas gifts

Now I can show two of the Christmas projects completed. I gave these to Angela and Grant on Thanksgiving so they can be used throughout the season. The rest will have to wait...

Quilt Retreat

I had such a wonderful time the past few days at a retreat at Dwight Mission. I can't show all my completed projects as they are Christmas gifts - however, I DID finish ONE sock, the other is about halfway done. So proud of the Kitchner stitch on the toe!!! The campus was absolutely gorgeous, dressed in fall colors.

So "fallish" out today. Wind is blowing, leaves swirling all over the place, cool and sort of damp, a bit cloudy. I love a day like this. Ryan has a football game tonight, perfect football weather! He is 8 today - hope he has a great game.

Fall 2010

Love the Kitchen Tour in Nichols Hills , a ritual for Marilyn and I. Beautiful yards and gardens this year. Had fun knitting the skull cloth! Perfect for Halloween.

Oklahoma City Zoo

Abeautiful day at the zoo with Ryan and Lisa Kay. We did NOT feel the earthquake but the flamingos were going crazy, wonder if that is why!

Halloween Table Runners

I just love these runners. One for me, one for Leslie and one for Colin's piano teacher, Lavonna, as a birthday gift. She loves Halloween the way our family does!

Signature Quilt

In 2007 my small quilt group in Norman, Material Girls, did a block exchange. I requested star blocks in dark blues, dark reds and off white. Finally, in 2010, I finished the quilt. I love it and will treasure the blocks made by good friends.

Fall Table Runner

This is called a ten-minute table runner. It was easy to do and I was able to use fabric I had on hand. The pattern is available on-line.

Becky, Darby and I saw this guy as we were leaving Sealed With A Kiss, a yarn shop in Guthrie.

Pin Cushion

Made this cute pin cushion today at Quilter's Corner today. The pattern is by Darcy Ashton. I love working with wool and love hand embroidery. Isn't the little pin a cute addition? Directions included in the pattern. Thanks, Mary, for a fun morning.

New Apron

My very good friend Becky made me the most wonderful apron for my birthday. The fabric is lucious and it's reversable. I'd like to wear it for a jumper!!!

You Decide...

So, I started a redwork project. This is the January block, just completed. Working on February. I've printed the August design. I'm just thinkin'...2010 or 2011. In MY mind, I already have the first one done for next year!

Original Artwork

From my wonderful niece, Angela for my birthday. I love my kitty!

Autumn Wisteria

Isn't it beautiful...

Jury Duty

Well, at 8 am, I reported for Jury Duty. Finally got the call at 2:00. 50 of us went to the 8th floor to be told this was a criminal case, murder. I was not among the first 30 selected for questioning and felt pretty good about that. But then one juror was dismissed and guess who's name they called? You got it, MINE! Then I had to go through all the questioning by myself. But, when they dismissed 18 of us, I was one of them. I was sure glad. The last time, 12 years ago, that I was called to Jury Duty, it was also a murder case. Very interesting, but also very stressful. Glad I don't have to decide on this one. We went back to the jury room and they dismissed all but 35 of us. Yep, I'm going back tomorrow...

Welcome to my blog!

This was the beginning of my quilting journey. One winter in the late 1940's both of my great-grandmothers came from Missouri to Oklahoma to spend the winter with my paternal grandparents. The two of them pieced Dresden Plates,by hand, from fabric scraps. Many years later, my mother hand-stitched each plate to a muslin square. She made a few extra plates because they had pieced only enough for three twin sized quilts. My sister and I each completed a twin sized quilt and my sister also completed a king sized quilt for my parents. I completed mine in 1999. It is hand quilted.
