Forboding Sky.........

this is what the day looked like today.... so I decided to spend some time in the sewing room.... as it turned out, the clouds went away and the sun came out... but only for a little while.



I made some cards today.... I need a few for different swaps... plus for birthdays... so I spent about an hour making these...




I also have been wanting to make a disappearing nine-patch quilt for awhile. I really should be working on other UFO's, but .... I just wanted to do something quick and easy today. I received 7 fat quarters in a give-away from Bluebird Quilts and thought they would be great for the disappearing nine-patch. - and I was right! The 7 fat quarters made a quilt about 35 X 45..... and this is what it looked like before I added border...



and I fiddled with the setting and added a small red border and then a green border... and now I have a lovely lap quilt for my mother in law...... hope to quilt it up tomorrow....

Love the quilt and also your cards. Are your cards all made by stamping???? I wish I could make such beautiful cards. You are really very talented.
