And the winner of the most done this month goes to...
Someone else - not me.  Hahaha

Oh so my New Honey asked me....What are you making the hedgehog for?  
Me:  Nothing
New Honey, perplexed by previous answer: What are you going to to with it?
Me:  I don't know, maybe nothing.
New Honey, shakes head not understanding.

It's hard to break in a new honey. Hahaha

I don't know what I'll do with the Hedgehog - but someday it will be just the right piece for just the right project.

I have finished up the quilting on the place mats.

 I did quilting around the flowers.
(These are in process pictures.)
 As I worked on them, I could tell my free-motion quilting was easier and smoother by the 3rd place mat.  Hmmm....that's probably why they say to practice before starting a new project.
At any rate - I really do love this clear quilting foot I bought.  It was easy to put on, even though it's been a long, long time since I originally used it.
I used a ruler to get it just the right height.

I used to be such a doer.  I would come home swim, make dinner, clean a little, then sew and just be so productive.  Now... Nothing - Zip.

I probably need a new project. Right?

My daughter sent this to me - I thought you might enjoy it.

Happy Stitching,


  1. Hello Linda, Those place mats are lovely and the quilting is great. I think we all create things in readiness for a project somewhere down our creative path. It sounds as if you are enjoying life....wonderful. Love that quote!

  2. Such lovely placemats. I love how you have quilted around the flowers - and it all looks very neat! x

  3. Hi Linda, I saw you comment on Bethan's blog and popped over. Don,t know why you are not on my readers list.
    Like to read your posts.
    Lovely work you've done on your place-mats...

  4. Men just don't get it. There doesn't have to be a use for what we are creating, we just need to create! Very pretty place mats.

    1. No - he just doesn't get it, but he's still a keeper!

  5. LOL yep, educate him properly!! That little hedgehog is too darling. Sometimes something is too cute not to make, even if there's no finish plan! Love your quilting on the placemats!

  6. Pretty placemats, and beautiful quilting, you didn't choose the easiest flower design ;))
