It seems I have been sick forever. I'm trying to play catch up. Nasty bronchial cough that just seems to linger on and on. I've totally lost count and we just turned in 5 that I didn't get to photograph so I have no idea what the count is at this point.
Starting with Number 1 through 4.

Does this relate to another thread? I want to hear the story of isolette quilts and what you are doing. They are lovely. Hope you are now feeling better and able to share the story of your quilts. Are they going to a neonatal unit?

It is fun to revisit them. I like number one as well. It gave me an idea for a DG friends quilt. Im wanting to use the swap charms, blocks etc, in one quilt, all together. I was going to take al the charms and make a big twister basket, but I also think cutting them and doing something like that quilt would be good too.

A few more. Blossom is on the right showing her new Easter table runner. Christine is on the left, she is our very special ironner. Blossom's
granddaughters were visiting but camera shy. Also visiting was MaryEllen, Judy R's mom. She managed to make several quilts for us while here. We loved having her join us. Carol V. also joined us.

Baby Footprints. Front & Back of a new method for flannel reversibles. I was so thrilled that we emptied a lug of flannel , but wouldn't you know it, at dinner last night we received two bags of flannel. Enough to make 3 more quilts. Sheila dropped in briefly to drop off and pick up items as she was on her way to a longarm class in Orlando. When she met us at the library she was just bubbling over with new things she had learned and couldn't wait to try. She's holding a table runner that was on it's way to be backed and finished. Kathy fnished it last night at the library and into the lug it will go.

Before Maryellen, Judy R's mom, left to go back , she and Judy made two more flannel quilts for the hospital babies. Judy leaves tomorrow so she dropprd them off and said goodbye. They are reversible so I have taken pictures of the fronts and backs. Flannel 1 front and back, flannel 2 front and back. Carol V brought back Mary B's finished 2" squares which Carol added borders to and layered andquilted . She also made the binding and sewed it on. So lovely all I have to do is photograph and deliver to the baby leader. What a team, I am truly blessed to have so many wonderful generous quilting friends.

"A 100 years ago" (OK, I'm exaggerating,it was 40 years ago) I used to make custom vests for my boyfriend, he was a waiter at Farrell's Ice Cream Parlor. I remember doing a Mickey theme with BIG applique on the back, and really fun "circus" vest that I carefully centered this big picture fabric on. An elephant on the back, an acrobat on the front of one side etc. When he was done wearing them, his brother (a manager at Farrells in Seattle) took them there and sold them used. It was soooo much fun!! I need to find a way to get more creative and ENJOY my free time now.!

Mittsy, I have found a quilting guild about 30 miles away. Maybe I can finally get with a group of women in person and do some sewing! I love your projects, they are always beautiful and fun.

Since I turned 70, I have found I really love the interaction with the younger members that are in our group. It helps keep me young and informed. I think it very sad that all of mom's friends have died and she lost that interaction Pat, I'm sure you'll find something fun to do. My granddaughters, both of them, loved the Sun Blossoms from youtube. We made two of them and they went home with them. I have saved the supplies so we can do it again as a craft project with them. The dress I copied from the thrift store was a big hit with dgd Taylor and dd Lisa, but Hannah was bummed because she forgot her bathing suit so she wouldn't try it on. Taylor held the dresses so I could get this picture.

Yes, I'm grateful to have friend & co-workers of many ages. I LOVE the flamingo print!!! flamingos have a special place in our family... lots of practical jokes involve a stuffed flamingo my brother brought home. It made the rounds in our family for years.

We used to mess with my dad over flamingos. He was the sort who if he had paint and a brush, everything got painted until he ran out..bird houses, rocks, etc. That's how he got blue flamingos in his yard. My mom was livid but we had to keep it going by continuing to buy flamingos and putting them in the yard every chance we had, We put about 50 in the yard when he was coming home form the hospital after cancer surgery.

Mom was always carping at dad for something so we felt the need to stick up for him. He fell in love with Shoe Goo and was using it to fix everything. Mom got mad and told him he wasn't allowed to buy another tube. Of course we all decided to give him some for his birthday. Contest was to see who could wrap it the most uniquely. Winner cut open a 2 liter bottle, put in the Shoe Goo and sealed the bottle closed again.

Here's a few more quilts. The yellow and green was purchased by Christine as a baby/toddler gift for a new girl baby in the family. The scrap quilt was made from strips left over from other projects. Used up a lot of scraps on that one.

Now please heed this warning and look no further if you haven't eaten recently as I am posting pictures of our farewell to snowbirds River Lakes Stitchin Chicks covered dish luncheon. The food was awesome!

We rec'd a bunch of started blocks that I turned into a small quilt for community service. It was kinda blah, so I added applique of cups and cupcakes. Finished is better than perfect! We're off to Scotty Culp Community Center in Satellite Beach for a sew in with Margie Engel and the Coastal Quilters. Charging the camera so hope I'll have pictures to share. Have a great day!

I did have a super day. DH took me out for lunch, liver and onions, mashed potatoes and gravy, lovely salad. Just yummy. My friend Judy made me a beautiful purse. It's really nice, both inside and out ! I spent most of the day embroidering lambs on a baby quilt. Had to put one black sheep in the flock. Not bad for a scrap quilt.

I think you mean the Sunrise, it's run by a Greek couple. I've eaten it there and it's very good. But no, we went to Barrier Jack's, it's much closer to where we live..
I'll pass the kudos to Judy.

This will start our 2014 baby quilts, I'm quite behind on my picture postings.
Works in progress. 1,2, and 3. We had a few sunbonnet blocks (hand quilted) donated to us, and Lois turned them into quilts. Pictures 4 & 5 are Dottie and a Valentine quilt she was quilting.

Mittsy...I so enjoy all your pictures. Thank you so much for taking the time to them share with us. You and the ladies are doing a great job. I am still making childrens quilts for a local church for their Romanian mission group. I also sew for Project Linus. The quit pictures you post have helped me see what other ladies are sewing and gives me inspiration. Love that sunbonnet sue sashing fabric around the sunbonnet block...very cute!, haven't seen that before. I did buy a book of sunbonnet sue patterns last year but have not gotten around to making any, but after seeing these blocks,...I feel like I want to get "around to it" soon !

Take care. tish

My newest great granddaughter was born March 1st. Due to size and other complications, she is in the NICU. When we walked in the first time I was so pleased to see a handmade quilt on the Isolette she was in. Unfortunately she won't get to keep hers, the next few times she had different ones so It seems they keep them there to re-use.

She is gaining now after losing a few ounces at first. She definitely is a snuggler, think she's knowing if mommy has her she won't be getting all the probing and pokes. Less tubes and lines all the time. I'm thinking the feeding tube will go very soon she's eating well, also eliminate the bottles and put her directly to the breast.

Speaking of which, I got to give the first sewing lessons to my DDIL and we also made pizza dough and cinnamon rolls. She's turning into a domestic goddess. She and the rest of the 5 kids were raised by a divorced mother working long hours, there are things she didn't have time to learn and her mother died when DDIL was young adult.

I had the same situation with my 1st. DDIL Her mom died when she was just 8. She had never eaten out. never sat a table with the family and eaten a meal. Couldn't cook, didn't know the first thing about cleaning or caring for a baby. But she learned. She and my DS divorced after 12 years. Both are remarried now and on good terms. She says the best thing I taught her was to read for pleasure.
She still considers herself my daughter and the feeling is mutual. I'll be seeing her when I go to TN next week.
