My Wall....

I finally finished the pineapple top yesterday.  It measures about 40" square.
  I know it's taken me forever but I just haven't been feeling too good lately so I haven't been sewing much.
I love how it turned out and I'm going to hate to donate it when our guild auction comes around.
But I'm just going to have to suck it up and get over it.  Dang!!  hahaha

Here's a closeup.

I still need to get it quilted but for now I'm setting it aside so I can start on a small wall hanging that a friend wants me to make for her.  This should be fun.  

I'm heading on over to Judy's Design Wall Monday to link to her post.  
Come on along and join me.  
I hope you're having a great day. Glad you stopped by.....Linda

What's on my Design Wall?

Four blocks sewn together and a whole lot of little stringy threads.  That's what's on my wall!  haha
It's been a slow sewing week for me but I have managed to get three more blocks made since I took this picture.  They're still in the pile waiting for more to be finished.  

This week has been filled with other things than sewing it seems.  A couple of days spent picking out new flooring for my sewing room and the other bedroom.  Then changing my mind and choosing something else.   We're finally getting rid of that godawful 40 year old carpet that we put in there when we built the house.  
Go ahead and snicker..... you all know the kind of carpet I'm talking about.  
Yes that's right!!  Shag!!!  OMGosh what were we thinking??!!
Well anyway.... the last of May we'll be busy clearing out the two rooms so the guy can have a clear shot at laying the new floor.  I'm looking forward to not having carpet in there so it will be easier to clean.  

And a couple more days were spent getting the camper advertised and showing it to a couple of different people and gladly one couple bought it.  Soooo glad that is done!  

This week I plan to spend more time sewing for sure.  For now I'm linking to Judy's Design Wall Monday post so head on over to see what others have been doing.  

I hope you're having a great day. Glad you stopped by.....Linda

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.  We shared the day with our son's family (even though the girls were not able to get home from college -- sadly) with delicious grilled hamburgers and mouthwatering salads.   A warm sun and blue sky allowed us to enjoy a relaxing afternoon outside.

Today I'm planning on working on my latest project for our Guild Auction.  A pineapple table topper.....  

Blocks finish at 7" and there will be a total of 16 to complete the center.   
I'll add a couple of borders to finish it off and I'll then have two out of the three projects for the Auction completed.  
I love these fabric colors!!    
So now I'm going to link over on Judy's Design Wall and check out what other quilters have been working on.  

I hope you're having a great day. Glad you stopped by.....Linda
