Change In Plans

Good morning folks...on my second cup of tea here at 8:00am.  I didn't finish the season off as planned, but it is what it is, eh...lol. I tripped on Sunday evening and broke my foot, so, I am out of commission for a lot of my routine chores.  It really throws one when things change so drastically all of a sudden.  I'm in no pain, which is wonderful! Just learning new ways to do things..lol
This is my right foot for hard to say how long now.  And I am in a wheel chair to get around, borrowed from a wonderful friend.  I would have been lost without her this week. Things will come together though, and I will work on quilting as much as I can.
It is so nice to have people who can help like this, as wheel chairs and things aren't always available when you need them.
Well, have a great day, and enjoy....I am getting better at this every minute...lol

Welcome to My House

Good morning all...today is my day to show my little project for this hop. I love these blog hops, don't you all?  Thanking Carol, again, from Just Let Me Quilt for the hard work in organizing these for us.
I thoroughly enjoyed making this piece..even though it is small...lol.  It is not your regular house, but it is a house. So, here we go....
This piece is a table runner, with fusible applique, and a little machine quilting to finish it off.

Again...since outdoor changed the true colour.
I machine quilted little stars everywhere to go with the stars in the background Fabrics. Thank you for visiting, please visit everyone on the list below.

Not sure why my list didn't come through, so, please go to Just Let Me Quilt for the list....so sorry.

WIP Wednesday

Linking to http://needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com/....hey folks, back again this week...yay!
Having my breakfast and tea waiting for the fog to lift so I can get out in the garden for a bit.  I have things pretty well caught up though.
This week's WIPs are as follows....
Ok, I finished piecing the Irish Mist...last week it looked more like this
And now...
You realize, the breeze stopped as soon as I took the quilt top down!   Lol. But, I love this quilt, and am anxious to quilt it.  This next one is still being hand quilted but near the end now.
There is one more row of blocks and borders left.
The Giant Dahlia is ready to be appliquéd to the background too.
This is almost identical to one I sold this summer.  I am working on a piece for the blog hop in Sept....ssssshhhhh.
I have one more to piece that is with the Dahlia order, which will be in grays and purples.  Will show you once I get started. I am going to try to get one ready for Lily today...if possible.
Now, besides this, here is what I've been up to..
And..
 

And sitting out enjoying the high tide from my back yard. That's it til next time folks...have a wonderful week!
