My  DH and I have decided to give each other a new lamp for Christmas.

We ordered them from Amazon and they only took 2 days to get here!

Stained Glass fun!

I had a great time Friday and Saturday helping my sweet friend, Myra, hang up all of my stained glass pieces!  She made these for some 'transom' windows in our old house and when we moved I brought them with us.  I also had a large one.  Myra lives in Colorado Springs and she and I have been friends since we were in Junior High School, seems like 100 years ago.  She came to our home town to spend a couple of weeks with her mom and she was able to come spend 2 days with me.
We moved into our new home in October of 2013

Here are a couple of pictures we took today.

This window is in our Breakfast room.

 This one is placed in the window over our bath tub in the Master Bath
 I have a window like this on either side of the fireplace in the  living room.  The red fleur di lis looks great.
This is the window in my sewing room.  I
This is my sewing room from outside!

bear paw blocks

I have been working on this bear paw quilt top for a couple of weeks.

I found some fat quarter packs that had orange and red and yellow and purple pieces.  These colors screamed bear paw block to me.

Scrappy Log Cabin quilt

This was a fun quilt that went together pretty quick.

I pulled out a bin of scraps and cut them into 2 inch strips.
I found a couple of yards of an off white fabric with small flowers.

I did not plan which strip went where..... completely random placement.
I did try to avoid having the same fabric end up next to each other.

Here is a picture of the quilt top.   It is about 62 inches square.


































I had some fun with the left over strips to make different sort of border.
This is a close up of one of the corners.
