Log Cabin Loonies .... and Finished ( or Not ) Friday AND!!!! TGIF Friday!!!

 You all!!! I get to be the DOUBLE HOST This weekend!!! And you know what... DOUBLE FINISHES right???  

So lets just get to my First Finish!!!  A while back ( Ahem, don't even think it!!) Julie K started a little Log Cabin Loonies sew along. And I kept looking at these fabrics - and decided to jump in. Well this week! I decided that that top needed some quilting and!!! sit down for this... Binding.... oh ya!!

What is this world coming too... Binding more than one quilt this year... crazy!!


And look at how pretty that looks on my refinished wood floor!!! I haven't moved furniture back in, because - well - I am painting now... and may have a few other things I want to do first.... Who ever let me start the refinish project.... your in trouble!! haha!

This is the back. It's kinda  a crazy paisley and I wasn't sure I was going to like it for anything, until I finished this top! I think it goes with it just perfect!!


And Finish ( sort of) Number 2: Along the way of my redecorating, I had some crazy ideas. And when you have a crazy idea - you have to see it to the end. I LOVE photography, and I LOVE using my photos as decorations - and now!!



I have NEW KITCHEN mats!!! I am so excited!!!And Guess what!! If you want to bring home a little bit of my country to your house - you can have one too! We have CATTLE DRIVE ( Or Spring Spa Day)   or The Three Amigos  available right now.   I just love these - and again.... check out that wood floor!!! NICE right?


There is actually one more Finish to share. And I will be honest, this one doesn't quite excite me as much as my quilts. But A lot of you have been praying for and thinking of my Mom... and now you know .


Alright so NOW!!! Let's get to those Finishes!!

Alycia, you couldn't have picked a better backing for that quilt. It's perfection. Bravo! Your floors are definitely gorgeous and those mats are awesome! I'm praying peace & comfort for you and yours. oxoxo

The log cabin quilt is amazing-very vintage looking already!
The new flooring is beautiful--the mats are incredible but it would take me a long time to actually WALK on them! lol

What an incredible attitude for your mom. Thank you. We had a death in the family this week, too, and yours is such a lovely way of dealing with the loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Love the quilt, but man, those kitchen mats are sensational!!!

So sorry for the loss of your mom. Hugs to you and your family.
Your quilt looks great and that backing is perfect for it. Congrats on the finish binding and all! Cool photo mats, too. What size are they - for the floor or placemats for the table?

Linda Swanekamp said...

Pleae accept my sympathy on losing your mom. It has to be so hard and disorienting. Maybe you could come up with a quilt design that we could all make and donate in honor of your mom. Something she would love to see. I love your horse fabric. Would love to see some of your mountain/landscape designs on fabric.

So sorry to hear of your Mom's passing, but heaven has surely gained a new angel. Wonderful finish and I do adore your mats, just wish they went with my decor!

Love the floors and log cabin loonies finish. Sorry to hear about your mom’s finish.

there are no instruction manual for how to be the daughter of a mom who is now gone. Lots of people have suggestions but they are just that and each of us has to find our own way--losig your mom is still losing your mom no matter how old you are and how prepared you are and how much you may comfort yourself with the idea she is in a better place....it is still your mom.

it leaves a whole in your heart---

if I were your neighbor I'd bring over the requisite casserole and ask you to tell me funny stories about your mom---

Sending you a big hug through the wires here---

WeedyMama said...

My condolences. I think Sylvia Weir said 'it' very well. And I'm glad you finished the puppy quilt in time.

Big Hugs.
