mostly work , a what if and a very fun friday night.....

did a couple of beatrix potter quilts up for nancy this week....like the double loopy thing


started out w just a simple  zigzag idea but ended w a feather  design as well
got started on this kingsize quilt for judy....love the colors xoxo


this is my "what if " idea of the week....i have so many of these inspirations but i  really think this is a great design  and  i so love these solids together
35 women with red wax party favor lips...almost 70 red shoes...plus a party bus = one very fun night

weekend update

I definitely had more fun than nick this weekend....while he repaired our broken clothes dryer and installed a beautiful new dishwasher ~  i spent a whole afternoon in the yard ~ mostly digging up dandelions but that's ok cuz it was sooo nice out ~ and i sewed of course...

made this fun little pin cushion for somebody special

made these wrist keychains ~ inspired by the poem below ~  for my very grown up girls who are leaving for  mexico on wednesday....whenever my kids go away i think of this poem...

[i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]

BY E. E. CUMMINGS
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
                                                      i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

and i got this finished on the longarm for another someone special...i will post another photo when i am done the binding


happy monday to all xoxoxo pam
