I just LOVE Sundays so much!  The world seems a little more at ease and everyone seems to smile just a bit more, in spite of all the hard times.

It seems almost like Fall is here and that's my favourite time of year.  I have been able to get back to enjoying my early morning coffee and breakfast on the porch after the kiddos and hubby are gone and the animals fed and cared for.

It's just so peaceful and I wish every day were this lovely and happy.

With gratitude and appreciation, Alohas to you all ...

Scrappy Star

Okay, so now that I've got the hang of the "Easy Carpenter's Star" or Wheel as it is also known, I'm addicted! 

Here's a smaller version my first made w/scraps from my daughter's jeans that she outgrew and left over scraps.  Of COURSE I had to have a pucker right in the middle! grrrrr ... I still like it though and am working on another w/some other scraps.  I'm trying to figure out a way to join them all together into one quilt and make a couple of other into simple lap quilts.

LOVIN THIS!!!  Thank you Marcia of Quilter's Cache for the easy pattern!  WOO HOO!

Easy Carpenter's Star

YYYYAY!  I finally did a Carpenter's Star!  I have been wanting to do one for so long but been too intimidated lol!  I found one on Quilter's Cache and LOVE IT!  I used one Layer Cake called Holiday Flourish and some red background fabric and VIOLA!  I actually did it!  SO excited!

Another Top

I finished another top and LOVE this fabric line.  It's called "Bar Harbor" another by Moda.  This was from the Moda Bake Shop line of free patterns.  I knocked this out in 40 minutes!  I LOVE IT!  and do plan to make a few more!

Now if I could just get them quilted! LOL!  What is the dEAL with this blog?!  I post pics and then afterwards can't get the text to left align?!   More reasons to not work on this site, really don't like that I can't get it the way I want it to look, oh well, another non-techie moment :(
