Willis wheel gets a work out

Grandson, Lane's 12 b-day  Pictures are of friends who are taking their first rides.  Quite a long line, Big Thanks to Uncle Ed for helping everyone on and off.    We purchased this two-seat wonder at an auction about 25 yrs ago.  It has gotten a lot of use over the years!

yardsale frames and a little cut cut ready to hang in the kitchen

  Now that I 'found' and cut out the veggies for this yard-sale find it is ready to get moved to the kitchen.  I used two different 8 x 10 prints of veggies and cut one in half vertical the other horizontal.  I then fussy cut around the produce and attached images to a blank piece in the frame.

This adds just a hint of color to my kitchen.  The frames are a bit fancier then I would normally like but they are growing on me.

I still need to take everything off the wall, fill holes and find a level, etc....  this may take longer then I planed for--lol

5 quilt tops in 2 days lot's of fun (and fabric)

Shouts out to my 'two quilt top holders'-  Thanks girls!

I have been busting stash this week.  Wednesday was a fun day to get together and match up fabrics for kid size charity/donation quilts.  Smaller strips of material were sorted for making one of a kind keepsakes.

Jasmine and Amelia pulled favorite fabrics for themselves and their younger brother Robert.  These three are the visiting grand-kids of a friend of ours.  Our grandson, Andrew made a top too but I didn't get a photo yet.

Don't fall !!

Amelia (age 10)  Her applique fish still needs sewn down. (top left)

Robert (age 7)  loves the fabrics his sister picked for him-- lots of baseballs

Jasmine (age 12)  never to young for a love of chocolate! 

Amelia had extra pieces she likes so we made a doll quilt and pillow with the leftovers.
