More sewing.....




a shopping cart liner for little grandson in Idaho!


A sundress for my oldest grandchild...she too is heading for Jamaica shortly!


And finally, the early morning light on the two almost finished Christening dresses for the twins...





This has been really fun, I brought the sewing up from the basement to the kitchen table....just love working in the heart of my home!


The down side of obsessive sewing ( at my age anyway) is inflamed bursa on a heel....the foot which uses the foot pedal of the sewing machine, as well as carpal tunnel issues from lots of cutting and hand sewing (I cut lots of fabric for cutomers at work too!). I know I should stop sewing and just read for a while.....maybe the rest of Lent?

The Christening gowns are gorgeous! You are so talented, my friend! You make so many beautiful things! Do you have photos of the quilts you've made in an album somewhere? I know you've made a lot over the years! ♥

Ohh look at all the pretties! Sewing is such fun, but I agree, you'd better take a little break.

Thanks, Diane!

I have many of my quilts in the "Lila's Quilts" blog listed on the side of this blog with my other creative sites!

And I freally do need to take a break!
Blog more, sew less?

The dresses are lovely! Hope you'll show pictures of them wearing them!
Does painting bother your hand? "C" gave me two of your paintings as gifts and I've framed them. They are beautiful--I love them! I'll be posting about them in the near future--hopefully I'll have more time to write--I am so looking forward to summer break!
