Getting things done

Getting things done lately for me hasn't been easy.  Summer ending, way too soon for (me anyway), and getting back into a routine with time management isn't my strong suit.  I got my Brother PR 1000 ten needle embroidery machine that I talked about here.;postID=6867215754255438753;onPublishedMenu=posts;onClosedMenu=posts;postNum=5;src=postname And I love getting to know that machine.  A baby shower, a birthday celebration, spending time with my adorable Grandson's, work, garding and least we forget FOOBALL all vying for my time, and attention.  There have been a few warmer days and the pool at my Mother in Laws also calls my name.  So that I was able to finish a couple things is a huge surprise to me.  
Shape book for a Baby Shower
This shape book was a free pattern at Joanne's the pattern called for grommets, and ribbons to tie it together, I wanted a handle for mine.  I love the way it turned out, and would like to make more (someday).
Glamour Rocks for the Birthday girl
I really like the way this turned out, my new PR embroidery machine made this so easy to finish.  The birthday girls name is on the front.  
Pool fun with the Grandson's
Pool fun with the Grandson's
A weekend spent with these two is always full of fun, and laughs.  I can't get enough of them!   
Stewed Tomatoe's 
These stewed tomatoe's were made from my mans hard, loving work in the garden.  I can hardly wait to make some Chili with those baby's.
Season opener 
A win for the home team!  Sad that RG3 dislocated his ankle, and will be out for the season.

It has been over a month since I last blogged, so I apologize for the long post.  I was busy getting things done.

Thank you for stopping by.  Happy Piecing,

The Ocean

There is nothing like being by the Ocean for the soul, the mind, and the body.  Here we are at the beach for fun in the sun, and vacation with my two adorable Grandson's, plus two (out of three) of our young adult children, and my man are making memories yet again.  We arrived here at Ocean City, Maryland on Friday at 5:30PM, and since the pool closes at 6pm (I know, 6PM? what were they thinking?) the boy's and I headed to the beach first thing.

We are here for the week, so plans have been made for lots of adventure's to come.  I will blog with more later (hopefully).

Happy piecing in the summertime, my favorite time of the year.

Spent the afternoon crafting

Not my normal crafting though, I spent the afternoon out on my deck painting and deco-podging a wooden tray.  I have been collecting cigar bands from my man's (bad habit) for quite awhile now, and always telling him I was going to make this tray for him.  Well, today was the day.  I started with this tray.
Plan wooden tray

White paint 

Cigar bands for collage

Almost finished
I say almost finished because I still need to add the Mod Podge clear acrylic Hi-Shine sealer so we can start using this pretty tray.  I love the way it looks, and my man like's it too.

Now back to enjoying this beautiful afternoon.

A Romper

Well, once again it's not a quilt, but it's a finish none the less.  A shower gift for a neighbor to give as a gift made by your's truly.  I love the little trains chugging along, and the little train buttons.

Romper for a little boy
I'm happy to say this one took no time at all, and I have another one cut out and ready to sew.  

Today I attended a class at Tomorrow's Treasures Quilt Shop on the the Brother PR 1000, and all the amazing thing's it can do.  I have a Brother PR 600 ll six needle machine, which I have had for quite a while now, and it's good, but I am really ready for an upgrade.  This baby has ten needles, and a camera, and lots, and lots of other amazing additions which my six needle will never be able to do. 

Brother PR 1000 Ten Needle Embroidery Machine.
Love my six needle as I do, but this baby is at the top of my new wish list.

Happy piecing, happy embroidery,
