Busy, Busy, Busy!

I thought the holidays were busy, but this month is proving to be quite challenging getting "it" all done!  A few friends needed their quilts in a hurry, so I machine quilted them--
This kit is made of organic cottons from The Village Quilter

Perfect baby gift!!
Nichole Webb Rivera has a great video on YouTube about how to make these Bottom's Up Hearts.  Her website, YesYouCanQuilt , is full of useful information.  Love making these little hearts and the overall design is delightful!

The same friend made another quilt for a special gift....
Pinks and browns always remind me of chocolate covered cherries!
Just a sneak peak...
And finally, here's a small sample of some of my custom quilting.  Lisa H. Calle has great rulers for sale on her website Stone House Quilting.

What have you been working on??  Do you have more time to quilt in the summer or winter?  What fool-proof organizational technique do you use to make sure you get time to quilt?

Just A Scrappin'

Today is my day to be a guest blogger on Just A Scrappin" and am grateful to Linda for allowing me a chance to share my paper crafts!  As I'm sure you've noticed, most of my time is spent on all things quilty, but I think it is good to stretch myself and try something different.

If you have a chance, please stop over at Just A Scrappin' --Linda has lots of creative people posting and you're sure to be inspired!

Branching Out, Just A Bit!

Cricut Expression, like the one that lives in my house!
Although quilting is my favorite past time, after, of course, spending time with my family, I do have another hobby I like to dabble in--paper crafting with my Cricut!

So, in order to get inspired and improve my skills, I follow a blog, Just A Scrappin', to learn about the newest cartridges and techniques.  Am excited to tell that I'm going to be a guest blogger January 18th!  My focus will be on a few cards and tags made for the holidays!  Hope you'll be able to check in (and maybe cheer me on a bit--this is the first time I've ever "guest blogged!") on the 18th.
