What I did on my summer vacation....

Hi Everyone!

We are back from Rome. I have tons to show you... hope you don't get bored. I know haven't blogged for a while so I thought I would show you what I have been sewing... then some pictures from Italy...

Here are the projects in no particular order:

Dresdens (20 of them... possible for a quilt for my bed)

I had some fat quarters of Verna leftover from another project and made these strippy blocks...gotta get them sewn together.

Here is the last Jelly Roll block.

I sewed some hexagons on my trip (this is just a few of them):

We don't celebrate Halloween (really) but I fell in love with this line of fabric called Moondancers. The witches crack me up. So I thought I would make a few kitchen odds and ends for my etsy shop and family.

This is a tablerunner:

These are going to be pot holders:

I am making a bed quilt for myself from Fandango... this will be the first time I have made myself a quilt for my bed. So far I love it... these are half of the blocks.

Last but not least the Pat Sloan quilt along with Old Red Barn Co on flickr (left over Mill House Inn... I decided I couldn't buy any new fabric for this quilt along):

Thus concludes the sewing portion of our program....


It was hard to decide what pictures to show of Italy these are just a few of the over 600 we took (don't forget you can click the pictures to see them larger):

This is the villa where we stayed, Roman Villa Silj.

My husband, son, daughter and I inside the Colosseum.

Inside the Colosseum looking down into the animal/people cages.

The Trevi fountain.

The kids at Pompeii (I know you can't tell where they are I just like the picture):

The dog the day after we got back... wanting all of the attention:

Let me know if you want to see more pictures of Italy I didn't want to overwhelm...

Talk soon...
