It is officially finished

I sewed the last stitch on mom's quilt on Sunday of this week . That sure felt good , even have the label sewn on , how great is that !
You will be sick of seeing this lol .
 I also just finished another curved piecing art piece , this one is one of my favorite flowers , a poppy . Well in this case three poppies and a dragonfly. 

I just seem to want to do art work lately rather than quilting . 
Oh I also spent an entire afternoon decorating a tea towel, how silly is that . It took me more time than it was worth for sure,  but it is cute .  So for OPAM this month I had three finishes , the quilt, the framed art and a tea towel ☺
 We had company last week so most of my time was spent enjoying Alyssa as we strolled the beaches of our area.  It was so lovely to have her and I will share some pictures another time . 
 Well I thought I should make an appearance before the month was up, thanks for taking the time to stop by , I sure enjoyed your visit .
 Hugs Sheila

  7. Your quilt looks so beautiful, Sheila! I really love your stitched poppy art. It looks amazing. The tea towel is so adorable. Wonderful finishes. I want to sew, but paper arts are filling all my work spaces and just won't let me share my time between the two.

  10. The quilt is of course beautiful. But the tea towel - so cute! I don't think making that was time wasted at all - as long as you use it. If it is hanging in your kitchen waiting to dry dishes lots of people will see it and comment on it and it will give lots of joy. How nice that you have been having time with family.
