Mardi Gras Parades with the grandsons!

We had a full day today!

We went to our younger grandson's school parade.  The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day.
He is in the 4 year old preschool class.  Here is a photo of him in the parade... It was so sunny.   We had a great time.

After this parade we headed out across town to see the oldest grandson's school parade.   He is in Kindergarten.  It was a nice parade with a band and Mardi Gras walkers.  The kindergarten children all drove their battery operated vehicles.  Too cute.

Here is a photo of him in the parade....

 Miss Louisiana, USA was there too.    She used to attend school here.  It was sweet of her to come and support her school.  Such a beautiful, sweet, girl.
She took a picture with me.

Wall hanging!

My aunt made this and had it hanging in her sewing room, It is so cute! I just might have to make one for my sewing room!

16 dresses

I have been busy these last 2 days.  I made 16 little dresses to send with a mission group from our diocese next month heading to another country.  My sweet cousin has made 14 dresses so we will be donating 30 for this trip!
These dresses are so much prettier in person!

I have never done this before and it feels wonderful. I know there will be some happy little girls.  My DH suggested I find a simple pattern for shorts so I can make some for little boys.  I will have to do that.   I did not have to buy anything, I had all this fabric in my stash.  What a great way to use up your stash!!!

The loom is loaded!

I still have 4 tops to quilt and I know I said no new projects until I finish all the quilt tops I have ...but....weaving does not count since it is not a new "quilting" project, right?.....  At least that is how I am looking at it.

Here are a few pictures of getting ready to weave.   I will post a picture of the scarf once I finish it.

Blog problem

For some reason,  my followers list is gone and I can not figure out how to put it back on.
Can anyone help me please?

Watching Downton...

I just watched another episode of Downton Abbey.  Mr. Bates has figured out what really happened to Anna.  Look out Mr. Green....your days are numbered!
I am not sure I can wait to see what happens next Sunday.

I finished another one

I made this quilt top several years ago when I was learning how to do disappearing nine patch.  I used some random 4 inch squares and I found this floral fabric in my sash that I used for the back.

Mug Rug fun!

I am participating in a Mug Rug exchange and these are the mug rugs I made. I hope my "partner" like them.

I made one for a sweet friend. This will be in the mail tomorrow!

I made one for my DIL.  She wanted one once she saw the others I made.

I had so much fun making these mug rugs.  Now back to quilting another UFO.

Another UFO finished!

My sweet friend from Mississippi sent me these little blocks so I put them together to make a cute Christmas lap quilt.   I did FMQ so it was quick and easy!  I had to piece the two red fabrics together  to have enough for the backing.

She finds it too busy but I love this bright cheerful fabric!
