I’ve been thinking of finishing up some old quilts and quilt blocks, I have acquired over the years.   I looked at two today. 
I looked at this quilt top first.  It is hand pieced with tiny stitches and held together very good.   It is not finished and I do not have the fabrics to finish it off.  I’m planning on blocking it off and adding borders.  The bed it is on, is a queen size, so this quilt is a nice size to begin with.    
This is the other quilt top I looked at.   Like the first one, it is not finished and is a nice size.   This quilt is also hand pieced.  The stitches are much larger and looser then the first quilt, and this one has more character, if you will.   
This top has a few problems I will have to address, like stains and seams that have come undone.  

I like both of these tops.  The colors are bright and I think they will make pretty quilts when finished.  I have decided I will work on the first top I viewed, as it will be the easier of the two, to repair and finish.
Yesterday I mentioned the next afghan I work on, will be the scripture afghan.  Today I wound yarn into balls.  It took some time to do and about half way through, I was thinking I need to buy one of those automatic yarn ball winders.
This yarn is from a project, I started a year or two ago and decided I didn’t like the pattern.  I have had it stored away, and decided today to wind it all up into balls, to use in the scripture quilt.  I have the remaining yarn, in these colors, still in skeins.  
My wrist will probably pay the price tomorrow, but it had to be done.

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.

  1. Thanks Cindy! 🙂 I have emailed the company for permission to share the scripture afghan patterns on my blog. I hope they will allow me to do so.

    Have a great week!

    God bless and keep you,
