On The Design Wall

I've started a quilt for my grandson's Bar Mitzvah in November. I don't want to wait till the last minute, so I'm working on it now.  It's too big to show it all, so I will post a picture of it when it's finished.

A Birthday Brunch

This week the ladies really surprised me.  They planned a little party for my 75th birthday.  They really know how to keep a secret.
They brought me a bagel, lox and cream cheese sandwich.  One of my favorites. My quilting friends gave me a wonderful gift and Sara got the funniest birthday party gizmo with candles. This was small at first, then opened up with birthday music.
 Thank you ladies.  It was a really fun morning for me.

Avigail has started a new project using a panel.  If it looks familiar, you are right.  I also made a quilt using this panel.

A Birthdy Gift

Thank you to my wonderful sister Sandy.  She made me a purple shawl for my 75th birthday.  She is the best and far more talented than me.  Am I jealous?  Maybe!

The Ladies Are Almost Finished

Rina has been working on her girls.  Most of the stitching around them is completed.  Just a few more things to do and then on to hanging it in her sewing room. Yes, she still has to work on their faces.

Stone Art

Renee has been making what I call stone art.  You place tiny stones on to a sticky design.  It does make some lovely pictures.  Renee saw a design that she liked so she made what she felt was as close as possible to the original design.  It is turning out really nice. I'm sure one of the ladies will comment on what this craft is really called.

A Quilted Project

Sara has made a cover for a Kenmore mixer.  She used fabric that was already quilted so it was quick and easy to make.  Sara did quilt the orange fabric that you see.What a great idea.

Somethings The Ladies Made

Rina started a wall hanging.
 Shifra made a pillow
 Sara made a zipper bag. She was even able to complete it after being attacked by the sewing machine needle.  Check out the bandaged finger.
Ruth completed the binding on her latest quilt.
 Susan did some hand quilting and assisted everyone on making coasters and fabric bags.
Renee and Miriam made place mats.  Unfortunately I didn't get pictures of everything because of camera problems (ME).
