The Fair...and Weddings!!!

I've been missing on here for over a month. I haven't been hiding, not on a trip but just plain lazy about blogging, I guess. I will attempt to catch up a little today. Here is a picture of my Quilted Village hanging at the County Fair. A couple of ribbons attached themselves to the quilt. First was the blue ribbon and second was a purple ribbon. It was awarded the Judges Choice for the best item in the Machine Quilted category. I was pleased..

Ring Bearer Pillow for Grandson's Wedding

Corner of Pillow
I made this pillow for my first grandson wedding on July 6, 2013. Hand embroidered on the wrong side of ivory satin. The corners were pieces of the straps from the bride's dress. She took the straps off and wore the dress strapless..
This was the first of my grandson's weddings this summer. Number 2 was on August 3, both weddings were beautiful and were lots of fun. The days just didn't last long enough.....

There was just so much going on the past month and a half, that blogging was the furthest thing from my mind. I hope I can get back in the grove now and make some entries here on a timely basis...Sew until next time...Have a Stitches kind of day....Bye for now.....


  1. Congrats on all of your ribbons. Congrats on also adding two new family members this summer. Very good excuses for not blogging. Family is much more important than blogging.

  2. Congratulations on the weddings! Pretty soon you'll be making quilts for great-grandbabies!
