Everything but the kitchen sink


Kim Brackett's book, "Scrap-Basket Surprises" has been one of my favorite scrappy quilt books.  When I saw this one, appropriately named "Kitchen Sink",  I knew I could utilize lots of scraps using the little pieces of fabric that were in my basket.  This was started several months ago, and this afternoon seemed like a good time to get the borders on.  Now it is ready to quilt...yea!

It's Labor Day weekend...where has the summer gone?  I have to admit that I am ready for fall...love the cooler weather.  Last night we went to the Kansas City Irish Fest...it was so stinkin' hot, very uncomfortable!  Then I went to the Sana-Cali-Gon festival this morning...lots of great craft tents, but once again it was way too hot.  After the 4th tent, I decided that it was not much fun and came home to my nice cool sewing room. 

Last weekend, the boys came over for a sleep-over.  Have to share these pictures of Jack...Gramma and Grandpa have to spoil them with donuts and milk for breakfast, right?



And then we can send them home in a sugar coma......


I wanted to share this link with you, it seems like I know too many women fighting the battle with breast cancer.   This is so beautiful.....

Kitchen Sink does lend itself to using lots and lots of scraps.

I have a friend who baby-sat all her grandchildren at one time or another. They used to spend summer days with her after starting to school. They called it Granny's Camp I think. She always had crafts for them to do. And they published a weekly newsletter.

Beautiful job on the scrap quilt! I had to do a double-take to see if it was a bow tie pattern. Very nice indeed:)
