The Autumn leaf block quilt. This is the beginning layout, I'm sure it will change before it all gets sewed together. It's queen sized.

blocks from a different angle and yes, there is one block in there that is put together wrong. That will be fixed. Can you find it?

The first layout of the autumn leaf quilt.

Waiting so patiently.

Congested parking lot in Mt. Hope, Ohio. We heard there was a horse auction going on at the auction barn.

That's better - and activity points too!
Burning Bush (turns red in the fall), in great need of a trim

Moonbeam Coreopsis, my absolute favorite perennial. Just beginning to bloom.

Midnight enjoying the new grass.

A little miracle gro really made the lillies bloom profusely. BEAUTIFUL! I LOVE yellow. The tall green things are future gladiolias.

This was taken this evening-June 10th, looking up from the street. Day Lillies are in beautiful bloom, diahlias are coming up, (bottom left), lots of other perennials growing too.

Trimmed the forsythia WAY back and moving lots of mulch and shale that was there.

More work on the hill, this was taken in early spring as I was trying to spread mulch on the hill area, and plant grass on the upper flat area. We tore out all those nasty evergreen bushy things that were growing on the front of the hill, and replaced it with grass.

more quilt pics

women of the Bible quilt. I did an online study with some ladies several years ago. We studied women of the Bible and made a quilt square representing each, then wrote the women's name on the block. It was a lot of fun and I learned a lot too. Too many quilts and not enough beds in the house so I have two quilts on this bed that is here in the guest/computer room.
My best little quilt tester ever! this is Casper, and he's the best kitty!! Talks to everyone, loves everyone. He's a big boy at about 14 pounds, but oh so sweet. He came to us as a stray, but I think straight from Heaven cause he's a real keeper.

Cheryl, from my quilting group, got me started on this organizational process. She brought empty bolts from the fabric store for us to take home. I love to store my fabric this way, it's like going to my own personal "Fabric store", right here at home. thanks Cheryl for the great idea.

"My flower garden quilt". I backed it with pink and did all the hand quilting in black thread.

Another close up of some of the blocks. This was a stack and whack quilt. So fun to make.

Close up of some of the blocks in "My flower garden quilt". I love the vibrant colors in this quilt. This is my DH's favorite quilt that I've made.

Cindy's bird house theme pillow case. Made for a dear friend who is starting her battle with ovarian cancer. She will win!!!! I love birds, and Jesus said that not a sparrow falls without the will of the Father and we are more precious than many sparrows . We feel so helpless when a friend is faced with such a diagnosis that we want to do something. This is my something, love in a pillowcase.

Fish theme pillow case, I made one for my dh and one for a friend
