Wishing for fun things...

Hi all: Above is the start of my little Red block of the month, Red Delicious. The block is so cute, now just needs to be appliqued down. Lots of Red!!!I am feeling pretty under the weather, I have a super bad cough and congestion...sound familiar to any of you? Above is a baby quilt I finished for a friend at work, due December 30Th! They are hoping for a tax deduction...or a New Year's baby! The photo was taken in our messy break room at work. I quilted this on my little Brother domestic sewing machine.



I have also been crocheting, see above! Dishcloths...lots of them! Nice cotton, fun to work with, and fast.
Hope everyone is well and waiting for the sleigh to arrive, and to also celebrate Jesus birthday!!

So sorry to hear that you're under the weather. Perhaps your dear hubby might make you a pot of chicken noodle soup? ;-)

Looks like the Mom-to-be is delighted with her gift! I like the size. It's adorable and quite a sweet gift from a sweet quilter!

Oh I'm with you! I just love crocheting dishclothes and scarves and such. Anything that I don't have to be too mindful about.

Get well soon, Jules!

Oooh! And the applique! It's looking terrific already!!!

Hope you're feeling MUCH better after a weekend. Love the red block, and the baby quilt is adorable. And aren't knitted dishcloths great? They hold up well too, which surprised me.

Isn't applique just the cat's meow.

Also that is a great quilt.

I'm also going to be doing those blocks (a combination of applique and embroidery). Love the baby quilt!

The UT graduation was really nice and we are so excited that we only have one in college now! More money for me to spend on fabric and crafts. You have some beautiful handwork. Are you Texas girl?

You are definitely a woman of many talents. The applique is adorable! The baby quilt is so sweet and the dishcloth is too pretty to use on dishes. I love all your creations.

Julie,
I'm fairly new at blogging so I don't think I have my site set up like it should be. I sent you my email address though. Hope to hear from you. Hope you are feeling better.

Such a sweet gift for a new baby, I love all the blues you put in that quilt. The red birds looks like a fun project, I love any quilt with red in it.
I hope you feel better soon.

meggie said...

Love the little baby quilt!
Also the cute red birds!

Lady of the Cloth said...

I love the birds on that red block and the baby quilt is darling, is that an Irish chain? looks a bit different from the pattern I use and I like the large white squares in there better than mine.

Your red birds are soooo cute! I just love them!

Nancy in MT said...

That's exactly where I got my inspiration for my Three Bird Quilt, I doubt that I will be able to find the time to continue with all the blocks, but I fell in love with the birds and then saw a white and red wool quilt in APQ and I knew what I wanted to make.
Thanks for remembering I still exist.

I just love my pink dish cloth......thanks so much......

Love your Red Delicious block. I have finished the birds too but I am doing mine in redwork. I have so much applique going I thought I would do something different.
Merry Christmas.
