Friday Update

First I thought I would start by sharing this picture of a quilt that I believe to be made
by my DH's grandmother. It was found among the belongs of a uncle who passed away this pass March. I don't know for sure and no one else seems to know, but from the other quilts
I have seen of hers, this one is her style of quilting. She made the most
of the scraps she had and although they are not perfect or exactly color
coordinated, they were made for use. To keep her and her family warm on some cold nights.
Unfortunately, some of the quilt is in need of repair and I am going to do the best to repair it
for our family.

I have been hiding from my blog lately.....I am thinking I need an overhaul and just not sure where to begin. I call it "Rosinton Cottage" because I live in the little community of Rosinton in Baldwin county, AL. But to tell the true, I haven't done much around and about the cottage lately. Most of my doing has been in the sewing room. So I am posting some pics of what I have been doing lately!
Also I have been a little under the weather, I have RLS (Restless Legs Syndrome) and they have been giving me a lot of pain and sleepless nights. Doctors running test by still have not found
what is going on yet. Go back to doctors this week for more test..OH Boy!!

Here are some pics of Maddie in her "Feliz" from this book. She loves to loved to wear and twirl in her dress.

Also the latest dress I made is her "pumpkin" dress. I wanted to make a fall/Halloween dress without the scary designs. Found this great little pumpkin in Etsy here

Til next time and maybe I will work on that blog restyle....
