Whew, "where" have I been?

First off, let's look at some more finishes!

A little Christmas in June. This pillow and runner are a Thimbleblossoms pattern by Camille Roskelley.
I ran onto this little apron pattern over at Patternbee.com and decided to make it up for my niece. Light blue is her favorite color, so picked up this Mary Englbriet fabric and went to work. I hope she likes it.
Scrappy Pink Baby Quilt~I put a flannel back on this, machine quilted it on my old old Singer with wavy loopy lines. Very Very Fun. I seem to like simple simple quilting as I get older. :)
Nine patches sent in May. These are for the swap that Anina sponsored. I can't wait to get mine. We were required to send 16 blocks in May and 16 again in June.
Hot Pads for teacher gifts: I bought a grommet tool and have used it several times now~I've been able to find both gold and silver grommets.

OK, so that is part of 'where' I've been. Otherwise, in a nutshell I've been away dealing with life's challenges...
Take Care~~

Ooh I love it all. Espcially those hot pads. I just have to use the grommet! I'm seriously thinking about making that table runner now too. Although I should probably get me tree skirt done first don't you think?!

I love the idea of using the grommet tool on the pot holder. Great stuff.
