Whole cloth mini quilt

I started this little quilt several months ago and have finally gotten back to it.



I using three different shades of blue and a very tiny stitch to fill up the background.



Not sure if I am liking the darker blue so time to contemplate my next move!!! I did echo quilting around the butterfly but I don't like it around the corner designs. So ripping that out and will just have to see how I feel about it!!!

Hope you are all well!!

Quilted Bookmark, done finally!!!

 


I Finished this little bookmark for my sweet neighbor who loves to read for Christmas. And I gave her a new book. And a cozy soft blanket to cuddle under while she reads. She is the best neighbor ever and being able to give her something special warms our hearts!!!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and I pray that you have a safe and blessed year ahead!!!


Love Martha

Not quilting, but having fun with some painting

 



I've been doing some acrylic pouring, just wanting to learn something new. This was a swipe and then I added the snowy trees. Never ever have I painted snowy trees. 
They turned out pretty good.
In order below, the swipe, evening out the landscape, adding the first tree, adding more trees and snow, and the final product which is also the first photo.
I hope you like it.
I am pretty pleased with the end result.
This is not what I started out with though!!! HAHAHAHA








Take care
God Bless

Special time with my great-granddaughter


 My granddaughter started this quilt maybe 10 years ago!!! During that time she entered the army, got married, had a baby girl. So she has been really busy.

Yesterday she came over with her little one and worked on her forever quilt, machine quilting on my Juki.

And I got to have some one on one time with my great-granddaughter. It was a great day.

You can see my granddaughter in the background quilting.
And check out that serious face on our GGD!!!๐Ÿ’Ÿ

Bailey didn't know what to think about the little human!!!

My favorite photo by far, the two checking each other out closely!!!

We made some progress on the quilting. Next time she is down in our area we will work on it again. I have a sewing machine for her to take when the family moves to Texas. I need to get it cleaned and serviced so it will be ready for the long trek to the new home.

Hope you enjoyed the photos!!!
Take care
Martha

"Always Looking Up" is finally finished and ready for hanging!



Isaiah 60:1-4 

1 Arise, shine out, for your light has come, and the glory of Yahweh has risen on you.

2 Look! though night still covers the earth and darkness the peoples, on you Yahweh is rising and over you his glory can be seen.

3 The nations will come to your light and kings to your dawning brightness.

4 Lift up your eyes and look around: all are assembling and coming towards you, your sons coming from far away and your daughters being carried on the hip.

I do love reading Isaiah๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–



Here's the back of the quilt!! So bright and cheerful๐Ÿ˜€


I hope to get this one hung up in one of the medical offices here in town very soon!!
We all need the Light in our lives.

Take care and see you again soon,
Martha

Time to block out the heat!!!!

I decided on this fabric to block out some of the heat that is coming into my sewing room through the direct sunlight from the skylight.


I do love the light, believe me, but the heat inside can get intolerable.


It's supposed to hit 100 degrees today so keeping the house cool is important. It will still get up to 79 degrees with the heat pump, fans and keeping the window coverings closed. 
I was wondering if I was able to block the sun from the skylight if that would also help?
It is worth a try.


Sew I found a lovely fabric and got to sewing.


Almost feels like I am under the ocean.
And I love that!!!!


๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€


Now, back to quilting!!!!

Take care,
Martha
