Holidays eww!

So I have had a lot going on lately the last couple months were a killer at work always are but I am not as young as I used to be 
Yes yes it is true but I got a new toy it's been on my bucket list
A silhouette cameo ( cheers )
But as usual a week after I got it from Amazon if you wondered  they came out with a new one but I am happy oh so happy with mine I have not used the sketching pens yet
But I have cut fabric for some pillows 
if you've never heard of it please go to Pinterest it can draw and cut uses files from the site for free or less than a dollar no cartridges to buy like the cricket and who hoo the things it can cut and draw  I have a few projects on my Pinterest board and there are a lot more
 I'll share here hopefully soon
 Painting and recovering this old chair


Going to be white with a turquoise chevron pattern 







Freckled whimsy did a tut over at the sis six blog about these positive negative pillows using the deer head die I loved it so I'm doing some for my niece 
I am going to start a new Pinterest board of just my projects soon I hope you'll look me up
It's going to be another busy month and the father of my neises husband passed sat so that takes 3 coworkers out after they just got back from vacation so I'm pooped and back to the grind tomarrow

dissapearing rings

well here it is my version of metro rings using the ccr ruler by sew kind of wonderful I  really did not plan this one I just used some fabric I had laying around to get the hang of this pattern and then ran out of fabric so this is what I came up with of course my husband doesn't understand the whole improvising and modern quilt movement
so without further ado



he says it looks like its not finished but I love it
got the binding on this also I finished it last year and he had to point out a couple seams didn't match he is so helpful
and my beautiful niece got married on Friday so happy for her


like a sweet Amish couple
