Goosey Goosey Gander: Friday Finish Version!

Made this for my Mom for her birthday.  I am pretty sure she liked it!!  She has a sunflower kitchen, and the green fabric has pretty little sunflowers.

The back, no ties to tangle with!!

Mom always is shocked at how much I can accomplish in so little time.  So, she watched me cut the scraps, stacking the fabric.  I showed her some chain piecing and made a nine patch block.  Then I showed her how to have some good old fun!  Disappearing Nine Patch!!  Mom took the rest home to do herself.  Go Mom!!!

Soaring Past Time for Vickie!! 
74 pieces


19 goslings made from the Wavy Navy babies

2 dozen...eggs?

These are made from the Soaring Past Time babies.  Even smaller!  I think I may have taken the geese thing too far.  Anyway I enjoyed making them, but don't know what to do with them.  So,  the gaggle are winging their way to Vickie as they are. 

Don't forget to visit all the other Friday Finishes by clicking on the button on my left bar.
Going to sew with Dee today!!  Hope you all have as much fun as I will!!

I'm sorry... be late, but I really have been missing Friday Finishes!  Quilting my quilt is on hold (burnout) as I really needed to finish something.  To top it off, the urge to cook has taken over!
One of my specialties.  Chocolate, chocolate chip pancakes with strawberry sauce!  Yesterday's, breakfast!
Spiced peach butter!!
Bing cherry jam!
Made this apron years ago for a quilt class.  It is great for canning jam.  See the bing cherry splatter?  Exactly!!!
Saw this idea here!

Had played around and made these hexes with scraps.  Was going to make a new valance for the kitchen, but I like these better!!!
I am calling them dish quilts!!  They were great FMQ practice.
The backs are old towels from the rag bag.  The bindings were left-over from other projects.  That means these are totally free!!!!!  Yay!!!!
Here is what I have so far from the spray paint venture.  Lovin' that Hunky Dory!!!

So there is my very late Friday Finish!!  Be sure to check out the other finishes by clicking o the button on my right sidebar!!

Hanging Around

This is STILL in progress.  I have been on the go for the last two weeks, so it has been slow going.  I will admit though, that I am getting antsy to move on.

I have chosen two blocks for my Sew Bee It bee.  This is one.  As part of my process pledge, thought that I would show you my scribbles!  Nope, no graph paper.  I have a Gremlin that keeps "borrowing" it. 

When I have quilted all I can stand at a sitting, I am trying to keep up with my other projects by doing the cutting.  These are my final four pinwheel blocks, and two trial blocks for Sew Bee It.

These hexes have been carried with me on my harried way the last couple days.  All scraps.  Think that I will let you wonder what they are becoming.  Not sure the white background is a keeper, but wanted to use up scraps, so we will see.  Might tea stain it!!

On a brighter note, I won Joan's giveaway last week, and already received my Kate Conklin's Charm Bracelet Pattern!  It looks so fun!  Since I already won the most wonderful fabric (Paganelli), I am not going to enter any more.  But you should (read:  Anna Maria Horner's Good Folks)!!!!!
