Replacement for Lost Quilt

Almost 2 years ago Mom and I both made a baby quilt for my great grandson Cayden who lives in Indianna , both quilts were sent to an old address unknowingl , we did not know my grand daughter and baby had moved, so who ever lives at that old address must have kept the box and not send it back , We have attempted to get it back,  but have no way to prove they have it . 
 So for last Christmas I decided to quilt this and send it to him . Now he has one from Great Grandma, maybe great -great grandma will make him something too.

Hot Casserole Carrier

Whenever we go to my sisters from Mom's to eat we always use her Casserole Carrier to carry the hot or cold bowl of food , I told Mom I wanted to make one for myself .

When we got back to her house one day I laid it out on this fabric to make a pattern, it is 33" long x12" wide ,the middle pieces to go over the dish is 12 1/2 " x 6" with velcro 6" long, one on each side. I cut a strip 4" x 8" for the straps folded over and top stitched .

                        I then machine quilted the flowers

            This shows it wrapped with a casserole dish, so much easier to handle a hot or cold dish with food .

Blue Bottles For Bottle Tree

I have been waiting to get  these for a long time , finally got some from my Daughter-In-Law a few days ago .She said that my son had some Bud Light Beer and so she is saving them for me if  he gets any more. Right now I have 5 and a few more would be good , however that does not mean I want him drinking just so I can get them .
I will find more somehow and I hope to get the tree stand made soon. Rebar would be the best if I can get my Brother-in Law to make them, other wise I will use wood.
I just love the color of this Blue ! It is so strikingly pretty !

Craft Day At Church ~ Valentines

A couple months ago , I thought about having a craft day at church for the children , I asked around to see if it was a good idea and everyone, adults and children thought it was a great idea , so our first class was to make these Valentines.
They all had a great time and want to do it again .
Our next class will be a spring project . I will show that afterwards !

New Table Top and Dresden Pot holder

This is a purple and green Dresden Pot holder I made my cousin, it should have been a Christmas gift but I ran out of time, then  I decided to experiment with a 1"square topper , since I know how much she loves purple I went ahead and made this for her too.I sent it to her in January.

I had lots of 1" strips left from a bag of fabric that w
as given to me , I was not sure what to make out of them and decided to try this .

Table Top For Samantha

This is a quilt I made for my Daughter-In-law  for Christmas.
I saw a quilt similar to this and I knew she would like it as she loves Roosters and has some in her kitchen.
I started it in 2010 and finished it in Nov.
I had put it away after being unable to decide on the boarder and sashing , then when I found what I wanted , I decided to finish it . She now has it on her table with clear plastic over it .

                                                 I knew she would love it ...
                                                   She was so surprised !!!!
