My new love of Quilting has taken over my life!

I really love quilting.  I have been doing this for about 2 years now.  I have sewn practically my whole life and started at age 11, but never really gotten into quilting.  I decided a couple of years ago that I would start making baby quilts for new babies that were coming to our family.   (We actually have number 27 on the way)  So some of the recent babies have gotten quilts.  Here are some projects in the form of table runners and baby or small quilts, that have been completed in the last year.

I find myself dreaming about quilt blocks now!!!!

Just getting around to posting some stuff.  My phone has not been working really well and I don't have a digital camera any longer.  Vintage Christmas here.

We have moved to a new house, and have a new computer and we got things are figured out on that new computer, so hopefully I really will be back to blogging more regularly again.  I even figured out how to get the pictures from my smartphone onto the computers.  Yay!  Here are some new things at the new house that I have done up in Burlap, and a bathroom makeover with an Oregon Coast theme.  
I found this Paris inspired printed Burlap for my table runner.

 Here is the entrance to our new home.  New to us, but the home is 18 years old.  The front door had never been painted, so I choose to paint it white and redid the trim in a biege to match the stucco.
The bench was one we brought from our old place and I restained it to give it a fresh look.

The before in the guest bathroom.  Someone painted this mural quite a few years ago.  I know that it was the someone's artwork, but it wasn't me.  I found paint to match to cover the mural and then after our trip to the Oregon Coast this summer, I changed the bathroom with that trip as inspiration.
BEFORE

And below the After
 This was the mural wall now painted biege.

 I found this old worn out board outside and turned it into a great place for bath towels to dry out.
Two craft projects I did for the bathroom, were some great things I have picked up off the beaches I have visited, and the seahorse print was printed in black and white and then I colored it with chalks.

Some of the babies in my life

Yep, I have 23 grandchildren that either already call me Grammy, or will call me Grammy and here is a little secret,  There is more to come.  I love everyone of them so very much.  It is so fun to see their fun little personalities and cute ways even when they are babies.  I am in love!!!!!!!

I am back to blogging

I am back after a long absence from blogging due to what else, but technology problems.  I won't go into the reasons, I will just say that I am happy to be back, and wanted to post some new things that I have made with Burlap accents.  I love using Burlap!
