It will be my first PROPER quilt. I say proper because I don't think my first 2 quilts would qualify as, PROPER.
I made my first quilt as a teenager. I made it out of old blue jeans and to "quilt" it I just tied yarn in knots at each place the four corners of the blocks connected. That is how my great grandma Campbell did it and I wasn't aware there was any other way.
My second quilt is a doll quilt I made about 20 years ago. Here are some pics of it and the coordinating cross stitch pillow I made:

Hello! I hope you are all doing well!
Well, today I’m posting a project that I didn’t plan; it just sort of “happened”.
While I was working on the pillows, I was sorting through my laces, and I came across these kitchen curtains that I purchased a while back from my new favorite place to shop - the thrift store! I bought them for the lace bottoms but I had inspiration.

Celestial Lamp Shade 4 of 4
Ok, here it is; the last one for today!
I love all things celestial. I even have my half bath decorated in navy blue and gold suns, moons and stars. I purchased this celestial material at Hobby Lobby ages ago to cover some stacking boxes (and I still don’t think I've gotten around to that yet! ROFL) But I decided to cover one of the 3 ugly lampshades with some of the material. (Now, remember, this was BEFORE I realized the white medallions would shine through with the light on! LOL

Shabby Chic Lamp Shades 1 of 4
Wow! Less than a week and I’m back already! Cool! And woohoo!!! I finished the first four shabby chic lamp shades! I still have one more to finish, as you will see later, plus I still need to cover my own shade from my bedroom. I will post them when I get them finished!

I can’t believe it’s been over a month since we've talked! I am sorry for neglecting you! I've been busy working on projects and taking pics to upload, I promise! And I will share them with you once they are finished. Right now I’m working on several lampshades (and another I need to start for myself lol). That will be my next project to share with you. After those are finished I will be working on pillow covers and after that I’m going to start quilting again. One big one for my bed and smaller ones for pot holders I think. Maybe even some mug rugs too once I get on a roll!
