A quilt

I finally finished  this quilt  I started back in October. It is made with scraps  I got from sewing club. It has a light blue back ground ( a twin size sheet (I cheated)). It measures 46"x70". It is machine made.

I have been sewing, but life and posting pictures has been troublesome. Blogger is only letting me post 1 picture per post. Need to sit and figure it out. 

  To date I have sewn 27 items for the BH kiddos. And a few shirts for me and a lot of pot holders.  Can't believe I sewn that much with 2017 being a troublesome year.

That's all I have for now.

Take care.

Now what?

Got this bundle of 1/2 yards for Christmas. I cut and sewed them together  and ran out. But not sure how to move on. So far it measures 58" x 66".
I would like it a little bit bigger to fit our queen size bed. 

We have a snow  (ice) day. Roads are icy and on some roads traffic is at a stand still due to the ice. I am staying home and hoping to get some sewing in.

Total number of items I sewed for the kids at BH homeless shelter was 43. Would like to increase that number. Total numbers for our sewing group was 577 items. I also did do a lot of sewing /quilting for myself and family members. So sewing in 2016 was good.

Take care and be safe,
