This is my newest quilt project. This is a memory quilt for my son's Preschool Director that is leaving for South Dakota at the end of month. The white blocks each of the kids and staff drew on. I hadn't thought it all the way through so I was telling my friend the one that got me into quilting what my plan was. I was going to sew 4 white blocks to form rows and then seperate each row with a color strip. And the next thing I know were at her mom's and they were designing a quilt top and the next thing I know were cutting blocks and sewing a quilt top! It turned out MUCH better than my original thought and I'm so happy with it. I used scrap fabric that I had from my sewing days and the colors came together so well and even though I didn't have enough fabric we got creative and it turned out beautifully! My Grandma would call it Dumb Luck when things just happen...so this quilt is named Dumb Luck!

This is the newspaper article the local paper did on couples that met on the internet. We were one of the couples chosen. I hate the pic of me it's too goofy and I was totally embarrassed that it made it in the paper but at the same time it's pretty cool.
Ok so I have to confess, I've gone partially digital! Ok there I've said it. I still love my bug and all of my toys but lately I've been wanting to get pages done and I don't have a craft area that I can just leave things out. So I have to haul everything out and then put it all back again. AND I don't have many pictures printed. I've been watching a few of my FB friends do digital and well I thought I'd try it. I've been able to get pages done quicker and I really like them. So I'm not hanging up my paper bug and all my goodies but I'm having a lot of fun!

Here's Block of the month #4. I almost didn't get this one done. I started it the day before it was due and I cut it too small. So My friend had extra fabric I was able to use to cut it correctly I re-cut and had it sewn in about 6 hours and was able to make it to block of the month the next morning.
