Well everyone, I'm proud to say that the quilt Ladies of the Sea took third place in the category of Large-Applique! I'm really very happy and can't wait to give it to my father. My parents will be visiting in a few weeks and the big unveiling will occur.

My father makes wonderful items out of wood and I wanted a stickle holder. Stickles are glitter paints that come in little plastic bottles. I asked my father to make one for me and of course he went way overboard and made the most amazing item. It has three drawers that slide out and handles on the sides for carrying. Isn't it great?

I keep looking out the window at the tree in front of my house for any signs of the leaves turning color, but alas no and with our close to 100 degree heat, I'm guessing fall is a ways away. We did have some rain last night, but even that was a warm rain. Well I guess I'll just have to wait. In the meantime, I did finish a darling quilt for the shop called Pumpkins and Spice and it is certainly help get me in the mood for fall.

Well I have two more quilts finished. One is quilted and ready to be hung at the store. It is Over Easy with yellows, oranges and greens. The second one is called Sweet Days and features a monthly embroidery block that I started while on our vacation this past July.
