Happy Easter belatedly, Baby Door Badge, Quilt blocks and other things.





Special thanks to all the well wishers for the littleMan. OK, its been awhile.Where does the time go..... with a new baby???? I really don't remember them being time consuming??? Of course maybe that is because I am an old lady with "Sometimers". Meaning I can't remember stuff ....sometimes. But I never showed the Baby door badge, I made for our "WEE" one to hang at hospital and on front door when we brought him home. Its a TEXAS thing I think??? Used to make them for the flower shop I worked at when we were still there. Its pretty much a TEXAS HOMECOMING MUM, in baby colors! Also, wanted to show I did actually sew a couple of squares.... who remembers how long ago? My weeks seem to be running together and going nowhere...if you catch my drift.I have actually started to sew on my Baltimore blocks again...as I sit quietly ..... while my eyes still focus...and before I fall asleep! I have today begun to cut some strips to work on the SOUTH AFRICA letters, aka, Tanya style, that I hope to add to my South African Memory Quilt very soon....AND made a stack of Scrapbook pages.... without photos...on them yet..... because I have so many pics to get developed.... that I know I will have photos to go on the nearly 25 pages I have put together. I am so jealous....seems like when I want to/feel like sewing....I am either too tired to start a project... or not in mood to mess up DD's place. So I am going to work on organizing my bedroom...so that I can cut...and putter over books....when the mood strikes me. I did break down and buy both the Civil War Quilt books. But can't even think about starting them....until I get finished with this last star quilt. Think I may put these on point in Medallion shape first...then add the other blocks to the edge. I only have 10 finished so far.... so more to make in order to finish. I am also sharing a photo of DD's quilt that she made for a beginners class she took. It is so fresh and colorful.Hope you all are having a lovely, spring week. I am loving the signs of Spring here. Have a lovely next couple of days.

Glad to see your back!! It is so hard to be a woman and staying for an extended period in someone else's space. I am feeling for you and sending you some warm hugs!!!!

Your daughter's FIRST quilt? She certainly has an eye for color and uses that big print so well. It's definitely a quilt to be proud of.

I love the picture of the baby with the Easter bunny how adorable.
I think the door thing is a Texas thing I have never seen anything like it. Your star blocks are so beautiful I love the brightness and contrast between the blue and green. Great job!

Those are a texas thing, but I had only seen them on teen aged girls for homecoming before....

I've never seen anything like that Texas Homecoming Mum, it's very pretty. The baby is so cute with the Easter Bunny.
Don't let all that stuff get you down, it's a huge adjustment for you being in someone else's space and a baby. You're getting more done than I normally do, and what you are working on is all quality. I hope you find your groove soon.

What a sweet little Easter bunny visitor *s* I've not ever seen the door decoration before . . . but I can see 'Texas' written all over it! Happy Spring.

The Easter Bunny is a little creepy looking, but the little man is cute enough for the both of them!

Coll, you should put that "captcha" picture verify on your comments, so you wont get any "click here" spam.

Dae's quilt looks awesome. When I saw it I thought "Thats unusual for Coll to go with Alexander Henry Fabrics." Sure enough, that bottom one is Dae's. Wow. LOVE that FABRIC! I really like the blue green you have too. I've never made that block pattern, I'm scared I'll mess up the points.

Take care, I'll see ya soon!!!

Lots to comment about, but your QUILT is really a lovely combination of colors. I've aimed for that combination of colors but was not successful, but YOU did!
