About my header

My shed is my header by my son Darrell, He painted the Robin for me and said that it reminded him of me. Because Robins use other birds nest and if there is an egg in it, they will take care of it just like its their own. He said thats what I do, I have always taken care of others in need of a home when I come across someone in need. Isnt that Sweet, I had told him I wanted a bird and this is the one he chose. Robins have solid blue eggs which are the symbols for him and his brothers and the speckled egg are the others I have taken into my home. It was very touching to me because he researched his piece, He is a true artist and has lots of great jobs. my neighbor had hers done to

MY FIRST QUILT LINKY PARTY

MY FABRIC RELISH LINKY PARTY

my fabric relish


HERE IS A FUN LINKY PARTY AND IT WOULD BE REALLY CUTE TO SEE EVERYONES FIRST QUILTS AND READ THE  STORIES , I DECIDED TO SHOW MY FIRST MACHINE QUILT, IT WAS FOR MY GRANDDAUGHTER LILLYANN, I SPENT A SMALL FORTUNE BUYING THE FABRIC, BECAUSE I DIDNT KNOW HOW, THE BIGGEST 2ND MISTAKE I MADE IS ADDING ALL THESE HANDMADE RUFFLES TO IT AND TAKING IT TO THE QUILTER. SHE SHOULD HAVE TOLD ME THE RUFFLES WOULDNT WORK THE WAY I HAD ADDED THEM, SO WHEN I GOT IT BACK, I HAD TO TAKE OFF THE EDGE STITCHING AND TUCK IN THE RAW EDGES OF THE RUFFLES. I KNOW I MADE A FEW OTHER MISTAKES BUT THAT QUILT IS STANDING UP AFTER NUMEROUS WASHES AND SHE DRAGS IT AROUND ALL THE TIME SO IT WAS WORTH IT ALL. THE GORGEOUS FABRIC BY MODA, LILLY AND WILL HAS REALLY HELD UP FROM ALL THE WASHES. 

JUMP OVER TO MY FABRIC RELISH BLOG AND JOIN THE CUTE LINKY PARTY OR JUST READ HER CUTE CONFESSION. I ADDED THE BUTTON TO MY SIDE BAR AND WANT TO READ YOUR STORIES TOO. SHE ALSO WANTS TO DO A GIVEAWAY !



I EVEN MADE A HAT FOR THE FIRST TIME WITH THE SCRAPS, I STILL HAVE FABRIC, I BOUGHT SO MUCH BUT IT WILL BE PUT TO USE.
