A TISKET A TASKET QUILT FINISHED

 
Remember a few posts ago I showed you the Tisket a Tasket quilt by Lynda? Here it is quilted and bound laying bunched up on the sewing room floor....(so I could be most of the quilt in the picture)
I love the quilting my friend LeAnn did.
I like to have the wool quilted on. 
She did some fun designs on the wool.

I had one flower left over and couldn't throw it away, so it is a lone flower on the back...poor thing, maybe I should have put a few more so it could be a little garden...next time!

ELECTRONIC TWIST TIES

 Do you know what these are?

They are twist ties for your electronics. They have a rubber coating and bend in all kind of ways!
I bought them at my Version phone store. They are SO fun to use and they keep your electronic wires in check!

BASKET QUILT PROGRESS

Here are a few of the blocks from the basket quilt.
All of the applique is done with wool.
I LOVE the juxtaposition of the wool and the cotton together. The top is finished and off to the quilters! We will see the finished project soon!

AQUA TYPEWRITER

I have been looking for an aqua typewriter for a couple of years. I keep looking at them on ebay....and think "I don't want to pay the shipping and you never know how well it works".......so I have had my daughters on the look-out for one. Friday my daughter called and said there was one for sale on a blog, and the woman lived just 17 miles from me. I called and went to see it on Saturday....and bought it! HOORAY! It works PERFECTLY, how lucky can I be? I know it is a crazy thing, but I really wanted one. My grandchildren won't even know what the thing is.
