New project "Now and Forever"

I am thinking of joining another BOM. It’s very cute, it’s combo piecing and applique. It’s called “Now and Forever” design by Beth Ferrier. It started on Valentine’s Day and the directions will be given every month on the 14th. The first step is available here.

It will be fun quilt and I love the flowers and the bright colors. I will be picking colors this weekend. It’s so romantic looking quilt!

Happy Sewing!

Wedding Quilt and Bedroom Curtains

I made curtains for my bedroom. My mom send me this lace fabric, but I didn’t get around to sew them until now.

When we moved to this house I made curtains for the living room, kitchen, my sewing room and now the bedroom. The bedroom took a major renovation. It had a pink carpet and pink stripe wallpaper that was kind a cute, but the hubby didn’t like it :). So we had to strip the wall paper, and we got a new carpet and we paint it. Thanks to our friends Chuck, Heather and Bret for their help! My hubby let me pick the colors and I love them. It has a two different colors on the opposite walls. Here is a picture of the quilt on our bed now:

I started this quilt before our wedding. The fabric was a gift from my mother-in-law. She helped me pick the fabric, but my color choices were based on my favorite color green and my husband’s orange. They go together so nice! :)) What is on your bed?

Happy Sewing!

Life is Grand Award

I got a second award! Life is Grand! Thanks to my dearest friend Millie, from “Millie’s Quilting” for nominating me for second award! She is a professional long arm quilter and she has a very interesting blog, so be sure to stop by here!

Life is Grand! Yes, it is! I usually learn from my own experience, I learned that life is precious after I lost my father. I miss him dearly!

The Rules are I have to list 5 reasons why my life is “grand”, and then pass it on to five more peeps.

1. My life is grand because I am married to the love of my life.
2. My family is in good health!
3. I have the best family that supported all my dreams and told me I can do anything I want.
4. I am very happy my dad met my husband and he really liked him. I am thankful for that.
5. I have met a lot of good people in my life and I keep meeting more.

Now is my turn to nominate 5 blogger with this Grand Award:

Another finished UFO

I finished another project in February. This is my “Ribbon Star” table runner:

The back of the table runner looks good, too! I used a fabric from my mom’s stash. I brought it from Bulgaria. It feels so good any time you finish a project, isn’t it?

Happy Sewing!

Valentine Food

My hubby is a very good cook! He made homemade pizza. Isn’t he talented!
I made Emeril’s flourless chocolate cake. It has a pound of chocolate in it! I used an Orange flavour liqueur instead of Kahlua and orange extract instead of vanilla. I was out of parchment paper and I will definaltly use that next time to help take it out of the form. It was soo good and chocolaty!
