It seems everyone is showing a list of finishes for 2011 so I figured I would join in and bring you up-to-date on what was finished during my blogging absence.
Koala Redwork – Quilted, sham finished and delivered to My Dear Luis’ little boy. He didn’t seem to be impressed, but Mom and Dad loved it. They now have three of my quilts – Tessellated Wedding, Pink Ladies and Koala Redwork.
Pinwheel Parade – Quilted, sham finished and delivered to my nieces’ little boy. He loved it! Seems he has been on a black/white/red kick lately. He wanted to paint his room black, but Mom turned him down, LOL. Now they can work around the quilt!
Summer Breezes – Quilted, sham finished and delivered to my Aunt Sis. It made her cry! She loved the quilt and found it hard to believe that I made it specifically for her. She has an efficiency apartment in an assisted living facility and is very particular about her room. Now I have to make sure that she actually uses the quilt and doesn’t put it away for a “Special Day”. That’s something my Grandmother always did and it drove me crazy. I told her she had to use it, if only for a bedspread, because every day is a “Special Day”. She is in her early 80’s.
Here are two pieces of handwork that I finished. Remember, I don’t do needlepoint? These look like needlepoint but are actually counted cross stitch. I picked up both these pieces as kits at my local thrift store for $1.00 each. They have been getting a lot of these in, so I have several stashed for the future (as if I needed any more, LOL).
I am still working on my list of WIP’s (works in progress) or UFO’s (as everyone else knows them). I am going to try and match Katie May for finishes this year. She is signed up with Judy Laquidara of Patchwork Times. I am going to fly on her coattails, LOL.
Love from Liri
