Its hot! :)

I made it out here to Yuma, Az this afternoon and boy is it warm :) I will probably go crazy over the next two weeks without my sewing machine but I did bring some quilting magazines and I have internet access so I hope to stay half sane at least. I found some pictures on my laptop of quilt tops I have in progress and I thought that I would share them with you....

This first one is made up of some light weight cotton and strips cut from men's button up shirts

The second is some more light weight cotton.

Yuma, Az

Starting tomorrow I will be out of town for two whole weeks! Normally that is not horrible but this time I can't take my sewing machine or any fabric to cut. Boo! What the heck am I going to do? Go through withdrawal! That's what!!

My first post :)

I have read lots of blogs here and there and all over the web but I never really thought about making one of my own using blogger. I have blogged over on Xanga for years but that was more personal and much more anonymous. This blog is meant to be all about my quilting and sewing projects. I opened a facebook to showcase my quilts and sewing projects and this seemed like the next step :) I want to start selling some quilts, probably on Etsy but that might not be until later this year since the summer seems to be too busy and we are never home!

Until my next post, here is the second quilt I made for my daughter. I finished it in 2008 when she was almost 4. She loves the Little Mermaid :) It's backed with a vintage sheet and the binding is kinda horrible but I didn't know the "proper" way to bind a quilt yet!
