My granddaughter turned 12 this past week. Emilee loves cats and does her bedroom in black cats. Her favorite colors are black, purple and seafoam green (the cats eyes). So I made her a quilt to fit her bed. It was a long time in coming as I had never made her a quilt before. She loved it and I was proud to finally gift her a quilt.

I love anything to do with my Alma Mater, Belgreen High School, so when Tressa asked if I would make a quilt with her daughters tshirts, I gladly took the job! I love how her quilt turned out!

Tickled Pink Blog Hop! It's My Day!
Carla from Creatin' in the Sticks is hosting this fun blog hop and I am happy to be participating! Hopefully this will nudge me back in to blogging! This is day #2 so if you missed yesterday use the list below and go back and see their tickled pink projects too! I have been working on customer work so I decided to show off 2 of the most recent finishes as they are both PERFECT for the hop!
The first thing I am showing is a quilt I made using a little girls clothing that she wore the 1st year of her life. LOTS of pink and lots of little girls tickled giggles. There were a lot of monogrammed items and I think it turned out great.

Sunbonnet Sue and Overall Bill
All 50 USA states are represented in this quilt.. Sue and Bill's clothing is from Northcott's state flower fabric line. This was a huge swap between 50 ladies. We all had to do 50 blocks using the state fabric we were assigned. At the end we sent them to the hostess and she gave everyone 1 block from each swapper. Was a lot of fun and a whole lotta work but so worth it!

Show Your Stripes Blog Hop! - It's My Day!
I received these fabrics in a kit from a blogger several years ago and now have them in top form just waiting to be quilted. It is just a dab bigger so it can go to a 1 - 2 year old little boy. You will find some stripe fabric in the quilt and the jelly roll strips make stripes of their own. Some little boy will love this!
This is one of my favorites. I didnt use a jelly roll but cut my strips of fabric for this one. Lots of polka dots and sewn together in stripe form. :) Very bright and cheery. It could be for either a girl or boy. It needs an outer border but I dont have anything in the house to match.. I just might add a multi color stripe border on it or maybe bind it in stripes. Decisions decisions. :)
Someone will win this Tree of Life panel. I will use the random number generator on Saturday, Feb 27 at 9am Central time to choose the comment number and whoever made that numbered comment will win!
I do have these for sale so if you are interested in one, just give me a shout!
Well that's it for me. I hope you have enjoyed being here! Be sure and visit the other bloggers that are showing their stripes today!

Some Of My Stitching
I have been a needleworker most of my life, creating my first quilt blocks by hand at the age of 8. My granny Ella taught me but would not let me use her sewing machine. Those are the only quilt blocks I ever hand pieced but I have been quilting, sewing and using a needle ever since!
Next to a needle and sewing machine is my favorite place to be.
Although I have been a quilter for the past 36 years, I have found that I can find contentment and enjoy just sitting with a different kind of needle in my hand at various times. I love to cross stitch, embroider, knit and needlepoint. But not in that order. I actually don't have a favorite any longer...
I just love to Create! no matter how!

The Tree Is Up and Another Gift Out The Door!
A stocking with a vintage piece of linen to adorn the top.
A matching Tammy bag because the stocking just isn't big enough to hold it all. :)
The matching stocking and Tammy bag.
I just love the handle on this Tammy bag. It has scroll type swirls in the metal that match perfectly with the scrolls and swirls on the fabric.
My sweet hubby is playing hard to get! ha!
