2 projects done... :o)

I have gotten a few projects finished up over the last couple of weeks. Finally, I can get on to more fun things... :o)

First off, is this queen size quilt that I hand-quilted for my Mom. I had made the top a few years ago, and she was going to hand-quilt it. But she passed it back to me to do... :o) It has a puffy batting and I just did a minimum amount of hand-quilting on it, that kind of echoes the *Trip Around The World* pattern.

This next project was for a customer thru the local quilt shop. He brought in this quilt that he said his grandmother made, that was a *family heirloom*. The problem was, every single bit of hand-embroidery that she had done, was GONE! Who lets a *family heirloom* get to that point. I am all for using quilts, but take care of them before they completely fall apart! HA! Anyways, I re-did all the hand-embroidery. There are 6 large blocks on it. To me, it is rather drab, but I do like the finished embroidery. :o)

So like I said, now I can start concentrating on some projects that are more fun... :) Here is a little peek at the items I am getting put together for Beatrice for our F-R-I-E-N-D-S swap! I hope she likes what I have come up with for her... :o)

Thanks for visiting!

I agree about the family heirloom. You did a good job on it though. The trip is really nice, hope your mom likes it. It feels so good to get things finally done, doesn't it.

You must have the patience of a saint to do the embroidering! It is beautiful and the owner should be very happy with it.
Your friends swap looks like fun. :D
Have a wonderful weekened!
