Sew What?

I have been busy at my sewing machine since last year.
While visiting my sister-in-law up north,
many an hour is spent on our projects. 
This little turtle pin cushion was really fun to make.
This is the quilt I made for my great grand daughter Haven.
Hard to believe she is a year old already!
I did this memory quilt wall hanging
for my niece/daughter Becky,
featuring her three adorable kids!
When time permits, I work on myblue bird quilt, 
made of 8 different blue bird squares.
This quilt was done for a second cousin
of mine, she and her daughter have had
several health issues; the large hearts are
for her, the small hearts for her daughter.
For Tara's graduation, I made this in her 
favorite color, purple.
This year is Kiley's graduation, and I am
making hers now.  
I'm also in a couple different fb quilting groups.
We've been having mug rug swaps, this is one I 
made for my secret swap sister, under the theme
"April Showers Bring May Flowers."
I'll be leaving tomorrow for my trip up north to see
my brother and sister (in law).  We'll see what 
sewing projects we do this time!
I'll be back Wednesday!

White Coral Bells

White coral bells
upon a slender stalk,
Lilies of the Valley
by my garden walk.
Oh don't you wish,
that you could hear them ring;
That will only happen when
the fairies sing!
I hear them ring!
Do you believe in fairies?
I do.

Our little Chip got a makeover. He was having some health issues,
so we gave him a puppy cut!
He was on steroids to help, but they made him plump out.
He's no longer on the steroids, but now we're having a
terrible time getting his weight back down!
He was so uncomfortable with all the hair, he's more
active now.  Hopefully, this will help.

I can't believe it!! After many long months, I've finally been able to access my blog!  As hard as I tried, I couldn't get back in.
So much has happened since October, my great grand daughter is now 1!  My grand daughters have both graduated, are both college students, and I'm so proud of them both.
I'm a lay minister at our church, and really enjoy it.  I was going to go into the ministry as a local pastor, but several different factors made me realize I am doing God's work right where I am, and I am satisfied with that.
I'm going to go catch up on your blogs, and will be posting again soon!
God Bless!
