CAN YOU HEAR ME LAUGHING......I JUST COULDN'T STAY AWAY...

Still not visting very many blogs....sorry...

So let's see what the old Bejeweled was up to in her break?? All of a day....geeeshhhh



Cute little beads for the cosmetic bag below. (pictures are out of sequence...)

Gift for a friend that is leaving the island.



matching cosetic bag.



My GO is getting quite the work out! My husband came home today and saw these and said...my goodness Barb, what on earth are you going to do with all of those (he will see the postal bill soon enough...so I didn't answer). Then he said that he needed to put a lock on my stash or there won't be any after too long....hummmm



Finished this pink quilt (butterflies are made with the go cutter). Finished Saturday



Tumbling block quilt finished, Saturday. Practising my swirls...



Sometimes taking a break is nice but it sure gets lonely.....unless you have someone to break with....anyone want to come over?

Boy,you have been busy! I am overwhelmed by how much you did! I would love to come over, but the miles make it impossible. Joe is pampering me terribly as it is my birthday week, so that has been nice.
Glad that you are creating so much!

ME!! I'll come over... Say the word and I'll start walking.. I'll even bring more fabric!!! The bags look really great. Nice job!!!

Fiesta said...

I so wish I could visit with you Barb. You make beautiful quilts and such and make things so fast. I procrastinate soooooooo long.
I think though we would chat more than sew.

I love the little tumbling block quilt. The colors are so soft.

Jackie said...

Your swirls are fantastic! I'd love to see a close up of them. :)

Tangos Treasures said...

Wow all your stuff is beautiful!!

JustCindy said...

Your friend's bag is so cute! Love that fabric. Looks like the GO has helped you cut out lots of quilt blocks. The butterfly quilt turned out great as did the tumbling block.

Gene Black said...

I do, I do want to come over. But I have to work (sigh!) so I can pay the house payment etc.

I would ask you to mail some of those (tumblers) to me, but I broke down and ordered that die. I admit it, I am weak.

But hey, if you use up the stash, isn't that a GREAT reason to go fabric shopping? ---just saying...

Terry said...

Not only have you been busy, you've been very productive. Cute tote with matching makeup bag...it will definitely make a nice gift for your friend. And I love how your butterfly quilt has finished (lovely). And then you tease me with such a cute tumbler quilt with excellent swirl FMQ. Yumm. Great job on all.

Looks like the break did you good and that creative button was in full force. Love the swirls on your tumbler quilt.

Robin (rsislandcrafts) said...

So much for a break lol. I was wondering how long you would actually be able to stay away from your blog.

I love the cosmetic bag. Nice pile of shapes all cut out and ready for the next sewing day. I'm guessing it will take quite awhile for you to work through your stash lol.

SheilaC said...

Busy as usual!!!

And I am glad you missed us a little bit :) and came back so soon!

Rachel said...

You're like the Energizer Bunny - you just keep going and going and sewing and sewing. I LOVE that tumbling blocks quilt. Your swirly quilting is perfect for it! You sure have been busy on your "break".

Barb said...

Love your tumbler quilt! So calm and cool with swirls of stitches :D An awesome picture.

kpaints said...

I'll be right over!!! Oh, darn, I just took a little vacation...of course, if I was around you every day would be a vacation!! I love all your finished projects! The butterflies are just adorable and I love the swirls...beautiful! Wish I could do that....at least the front of my quilt is finally done.

Kim D. said...

Oh, your friend is going to love those bags. Cute beading on the cosmetic bag. Love the butterfly quilt and the tumbling block quilt is awesome too. You are one busy lady. I'd love to come over for a visit.

quiltmom said...

You must dream about quilting too- what a nice body of work for a weekend- Love the quilts especially the one with the swirls.
Your friend is lucky to receive the very lovely bag.
Thanks for sharing- Hope I am as productive on my vacation from school.
Two more weeks to go.
Warmest regards,
Anna

Patty said...

Your tumbler quilt looks very nice. I'd love to come but alas, must stay in New England this summer.

Rumi said...

How wonderful it would be to be able to pop on over for a visit. I'd come home with SO much great Samoan fabric though. Serious luggage weight overage!

Jean said...

Sounds like fun...glad you are getting lots done, I would guess hubby has not idea of the stash, or wouldn't think you would be running out? lol

Judy C said...

Glad to see you couldn't stay away blog land wouldn't be the same without you. Look at all the stuff you accomplished.
I have been busy trying to get the last customer quilts done before the dreaded knee surgery.
Maybe once I am laid up I will be able to get some of my stuff finished. Glad your back!
