It's that time of year again: where my friends and I get together to sew up charity quilts for our local community. They are more like throws, blankets, "kivers", etc. than real quilts. But we like to call them quilts. Since our goal is to get a lot of them done, we don't do the normal hand quilting on them that takes soooooooo many hours. Instead, we either quilt them by machine or just do some straight stitching here and there on them to keep them together during washings.
So, here are a few we made in the last two weeks. There are only 3 of us so far working on these, but others are planning to come in the next few weeks:
I entered this at:
RICHARD AND TANYA QUILTS LAFF#194
LET'S MAKE BABY QUILTS
and a few more places I can't remember at the moment. Sorry. IF you see this post at a different place than these two above, please leave me a comment to tell me where you saw it!! Thanks!!
Thanks for stopping by. IF any of you have any fleece or flannel or soft fabrics we could use to make more baby blankets, we would be happy to receive that gift and will make more charity quilts.
More will be posted as we progress on our projects. A very pretty embroidery machine applique is in the making and I can't wait to see it finished.

So sorry I have not been posting cards lately, but I have been busy outside. Here in South Central Texas, we have a full month in the fall and a month in the spring that is absolutely BEAUTIFUL outside weather. The rest of the year it is hot hot hot and humid!!
So, needless to say I have been outside most every day the last two weeks enjoying our wonderful weather. What have I been doing? Working with my horses. For those who might have missed it, I have two Gypsy horses aged almost 3 years old. I have been getting them trained for riding and then training myself to ride them as well. They are half brothers just a week apart in age and they are SO FUN to be around.
Look at those looooong white eyelashes on my Fergus. He is a handsome boy. (So is Brodie, of course) :-)
Thanks for stopping by. Next week I get to ride them and I can hardly wait!!
Have a happy week and do something creative.
