"...in a time lacking in truth and uncertainty and filled with anquish and despair, no woman should be shamefaced in attemping to give back to the world, through her work, a portion of its lost heart." Louise Bogan, American Poet 1897-1970

I Won Another Book!!

     I can't believe I forgot to share my good news with you! I won this book,

from Pat Sloan's Blog! (see her link in the Blogs list)  She was having this huge giveaway and I won the book. I'm so excited!  Thank you, Pat and Emily Cier!!  Here is the Amazon link so you can take a peek.
     My last post was about Kristi's quilt, Tipsy Log Cabin.  It was mailed last Wednesday and it should be getting to her today. *fingers crossed*  I should have mentioned that Dave at Wooden Spools did the quilting. He was the one who quilted those beautiful roses in each square and the leaves in the borders. Thank you, Dave!!  I have a long way to go before I can quilt anything that detailed. :o)

     Happy Quilting!
     Blessings, Deborah

Two Quilts Finished!

     My last post was ten days ago and I had some quilts to finish. I have finished two!
     Kristi's quilt called Tipsy Log Cabin (see original post and my last comment for credits) here:  http://quiltingyaiyai.blogspot.com/2011/04/finish-up-friday.html#comments.

                                                                    Tipsy Log Cabin

                              There are two sets of Prairie Points. This also shows the border quilting.

                      Quilting shown from back. Each block has a rose quilted in the center.

     This is the Quilt of Valor soldier quilt that is finished. I found out a local man is going to Afganistan in December and he will be given my quilt before he leaves. Gives me goose bumps. My husband told me they grew up together and he knows him well. More goose bumps. I am so honored.
     Two down, two to go! YAY me! Who am I kidding. There are two left that were mentioned in my last post, but there are far more than that on my WIP list.  *grins*
     Wishing you blessings and finished projects of your own, Deborah

Happy October!

     Oh boy. It's October already. How in the heck did we get here? Geeesh. I'm behind and all I can say to family who are waiting for their quilts is.....life happens. The unexpected. The horrid. The joyous. A quilt will be coming to you soon. Promise. No really.  It will.
     Soooooo many quilts, sooooo little time. Deep breath. I admire all of you who manage to write a blog post almost everyday and pump out a quilt a week. You are amazing! I want to be like you!!
     In this order - Kristy, Soldier Quilt, Nancy and SIL. Onward. Starting today. Go!
     Wish me luck.
     Wishing you a blessed day, Deborah
