It's been awhile since I have been able to spend any time Quilting or blogging.. and I've felt a bit lost. Like so many of you, I use our quilting time as a therapy.. Stress reduction and relaxation. Another reason I've been Lost and MIA is I can not seem to get into my Flickr Acct...I can see pictures, but it won't let me get to any of my groups or my email... I think I am just going to have to start over with FLICKR.. I have reached out to my swaps via email and shared my problems with the Leaders and working on getting caught up...but in the mean time I took blocks I received from a couple of my Swaps, and made two projects for my bedroom.
Instead of tackling a KING size quilt. I ordered a generic plain gray colored comforter..(after receiving the comforter I sorta wish it was a tad bit lighter, but it will work just fine until I find the right one)....and will use BED runners to decorate and change things up a bit in my room. This happens to be the first project I have COMPLETED for myself in over a year.. shoot it may have been over two years since making something for myself, now that I think about it.. *giggle*.
I LOVE how it turned out. I used the Wonky Pinwheel pattern from GreenLeaf Goods... I had a few blocks I had to unsew and resew so that the rows lined up for the pinwheels properly...and there are still a couple that somehow I goofed up, but you can't really see them unless you start to look closely...*wink*.
I was fortunate enough to have just enough squares left over to make an oversized pillow, perfect for propping myself up with to read or use my computer in bed! Here it is.... I LOVE it TOO *giggle*
I wish I could say THANK YOU via FLICKR to all the ladies that helped me make these blocks on FLICKR and post pictures to my Flickr Acct, but it won't let me sign in...so I'll have to find them under a new log in I think. But all the Ladies did a wonderful job on the blocks and I absolutely LOVE them all!!! SO IF YOU are Visting my blog and worked on any of these blocks for me I AM GRATEFUL!! and I LOVE THEM ALL!!!
My New bedroom is coming together nicely...I added some bright colored solid pillow cases until I can make some printed projects... a wonderful pillow I received in a previous Swap..
Some Candles and Bottles I found from Hobby Lobby and Artco to decorate around the room with......Which I was super Excited to find...
I am a bit worried about my money tree...It's look a little pale and I don't know what I've done to cause it to happen :'( (Any advice is appreciated)
Here's the Bed all Decorated....
Excuse the Wrinkles... It was straight and then... Jasmine Photo bombed it before I could get a shot... and I didn't realize it was still all wrinkly until I enlarged the pix.. HAHA.
Thank you again to all the wonderful ladies that helped me make these blocks. It's been rejuvenating to get back into my sewing mode... I've actually worked on a couple other projects since finishing this up and I can't wait to share more soon.
Hugs and Till Next Time.....
