Leader Ender / Split Nine Patch is finished

Finished this top today......


And now I want to make a really scrappy back. 
Maybe using up some orphan blocks 
that need a good home. 

This was a fun leader ender project, but my
2 1/2 bin of scraps doesn't look any smaller... :/

Visitors from San Diego

My son and DIL are here visiting us this week. We had a nice dinner last Friday with friends and family that was most enjoyable and the weather was so nice ,sunny and warm. It was if they brought the San Diego weather with them. 

My son is re-building a guitar while he is here for one of his band mates. 


He put the first coat of paint on last night.
It looks quite a bit different from when he first brought
It out of his checked baggage. The base and fretboard were
Wrapped in his clothes tucked into his bag. 

I am adding borders to my split nine patch quilt....

Mrs White in the Sewing Room with the Scissors.....

Remember playing the game of Clue!
Today I brought home Mrs. White!
She is a new (to me) 1968 Singer Featherweight. I got her from a good friend of mine who had 3 of them! She bids for them on EBAY and the Goodwill site and then cleans them up and tunes them and then they go to a new home. She even took apart my black one and cleaned her and oiled her. 

I made a few 4 patches to try her out. Such a nice stitch.


Look at her cute little tatted spool pin doily!
My niece made it , such cuteness.


I am so spoiled! Yes I am.

Celtic Solstice on the frame!

Not mine but isn't it beautiful. This is one that a friend at my Quilt Guild finished. Yes I said one of....she had two finished and brought them to be quilted. I talked her into letting me quilt one for her. I have it about 2/3 finished. Now this making me want to finish mine!

 
She really did a nice job piecing these blocks. So many pieces.
It is a pleasure to quilt! I' m using a panto called Sassy.
Neutral thread called "sesame seed". and I haven't used this batt
before. It's called  Warm Bond an 80/20 blend. Kind of like the Hobbs
that I use most of the time.




This is one beautiful quilt.
