Tiny hearts

I am pretty embarrassed at how far behind I have gotten, but I'm trying to catch up and finish!! In the mail tomorrow and hopefully in time! I really thought I could handle doing this and having a baby. Then I also moved!

Becca's Peppermint Blocks

So, I meant to finish these blocks before we went to the States in October, but clearly that didn't happen.  I did finish them right after we got back, though, and they have been sitting there mocking me ever since.  In clearing off the sideboard in preparation for Thanksgiving decorations, I saw them once again and decided now would be a great time to send them off.  Hopefully you can still get your table runner done in time for Christmas!

And of course, I had to include a Swiss block. :)  Becca was my first friend when I moved here, and boy was I happy and thankful to have her.  She made the transition much, much easier!

Advice from a 1949 Singer Sewing Machine manual.

All I can say is that I am glad that I have a can sew when your house is messy AND when you, yourself are messy. 
In fact, the messier the better. Here's to sewing anytime!

Mardie is catching up on all her posts...

Most of these squares have been sent off long fact, I sent of Amy Gardiner's without taking a picture first! With great embarrassment, I present the following: For Camie, Kristin, Jen, Nicole and Amy C.
(Why, Oh, Why is Kristin's square off to the right like that!!! Arrrggghhhhh!!)

Amy, we have books on umbrellas, ballerinas, birdhouses, homes, foreign places and ships anchors! I can't wait to see this finished!

it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas-

Polka dots and Snowflakes-
A table runner is a great idea and I can't wait to see it.  I've always loved pinwheels!  I hope these are ok.

Little Helper

I think I'm going to love this quilt. Like a good little helper I tried to make these just right but somehow the end pieces almost always ended up narrower than you wished. Sorry! Hopefully they still work. 
I love you,
