Well so much for me getting back to more posts! Life has just been crazy (in a good way) and spring always comes with lots of chores and many family events that I just can't miss.
Right away I will tell you these pictures are not that great. It is raining here today so it's hard to get the true colors. I have always wanted a pink table runner so I could use it in the spring/summer, Mother's Day and any other girly gathering.

My guild is having a thank you luncheon at my house next week and the color scheme is pink, so that got me working on this right away. I love how this little girl just happened to be sort of fussy cut without me even trying, that (almost) never happens!

I really pushed the limits of my pinks from corals to deep dark fuschia. The lights all have a pink or almost pink print in them as well.

All the quilting is simple straight lines that T.O.O.K  F.O.R.E.V.E.R! Seriously like 5 hours worth! I like my quilting dense and even on a runner I put in the effort.

The backing is a pretty pink print that reminds me of a vintage sheet that maybe I slept on as a child. I wish I had more of it. I also used it on the binding. Note the binding is glued down and not sewn down, yet.

Some ballerinas and glasses (along with some threads) add fun and interest.

Some exciting news here, I wrote a pattern for my hexie pincushion! For right now if you wish to buy one you can get it at the Quilt Block 610-363-0404 or email them at For the locals The Quilt Block is located at 95 Welsh Pool Road Exton PA  19335.
I also included 20 small hexies in the pattern that you will need. You can also email me for more information

The grandkids are growing up quickly and I don't want to miss it. Here's Elliot with his beautiful blue eyes, he will be 9 soon.This year he is playing baseball and he looks so much like my son at the same age that I am constantly taken aback!

Jaxon and Cameron are coming up on 9 months old already! Isn't this the best idea to keep them corralled? My daughter in law Jenny found the idea on Pinterest. They love being outside and mom and dad can get some yard work done while they keep an eye on the boys.

Maddy has taken up track and loves it! She came in first place in the 100 and 200!  Those long legs are serving her well!
So these are some of the things I have been busy with this spring!
