Raffle quilt progress

The raffle quilt is ready for quilting! I made some changes in the applique design, adding to the medallion instead of applique on the borders. The quilt should be finished and be displayed at a Christmas Tour on Dec.11.

Christmas quilt progress

I have been working on the Christmas quilt I am making for our Guild's Holiday Festival which will be held next year in Sept. A friend helped me make the log cabin blocks. I need to add the borders and start the wool applique. Hoping this original design will raise a lot of money for Stitching Memories Quilt Guild of Duncan, Oklahoma.

Wool pansies!

Today I have given myself a restful day after 9 days of family visiting. We have had so much fun, had family pics taken too. Before company came I had been rushing to finish the Teapot quilt for the quilt show and church quilts before that. I do need a rest!
Last week I made appt with my eye Dr. because I was having trouble getting used to my new glasses. Everything was blurry in the distance, closeup was OK. My eyes were 60% more nearsighted that at my checkup on Sept 7. He told me to see my Dr for blood sugar test, how surprised was I ???? it was 432, next day fasting # was 236. She started me on medication that should take it down slowly. I have a meter and check it 2 times a day.  I certainly had no idea that was what was wrong with my eyes, I have been very thirsty lately but had not connected that symptom to anything --- probably thought it was from too much machine quilting and piecing !!! LOL  All that lint you know!!!

I purchased this wool handbag at a craft show last weekend, wanting to embellish it. So today I have been cutting wool and gathering it for pansy shapes. I LOVE IT!!! I have ordered some taffeta, velvet and ribbon from Sue Spargo to jazz it up. Just pinned for now.
