A Finish For Glynis!

I swear Glynis does not sleep!  She just keeps banging off quilts left, right and centre!  Exquisite quilts!  Wonderful quilts!  Quilts that are on MY Bucket List!  Do I sound just a wee bit envious...ok...downright jealous?!  Well...maybe just a little!  :o)) But that's OK...because when I see Glynis' creations it just cements my reasons for wanting to make these quilts!!

For instance, this quilt...we both bought the kits when we were down south at Grand Country Quilters in La Mesa, CA!  Love that shop!
Glynis finished it off last week...and it is wonderful!  WAY better than I remembered!  My pictures DO NOT do it justice at all!  It is made from Diamond Textile fabrics with a lovely pop of orange and then the wool pennies in the centre of each star add a whole other dimension.  And I have the kit...somewhere!  (insert happy dance!) haha Yes, I have got to clean out that cupboard but it is in there somewhere!
The pattern for this quilt can be found in Primitive Quilts Magazine...:o)

Glynis is also working on this Kim Diehl Quilt...this one is on both Sandy and my To Do List...and it is going to be DDG (drop-dead-gorgeous)!  It is going to look lovely on Glynis' kitchen table!

This table topper can be found in 'Simple Appeal' by Kim Kiehl...and is called 'Penny Garland' 16.  See...I'm not completely unorganized!  I KNOW where my books are!  :o)))

 Yup...I'm loving this!  But then I love everything that Kim Diehl creates!  I just wish she wouldn't name her books 'Simple Whatever"'s too confusing for this 'Simple Brain'!  It's like Buggy Barn naming their books 'Crazy Whatever'...  I can never remember which is which...'Crazy, Eh'!

So it's the end of another week and August is flying by!!  I haven't lifted thread or needle towards ANY of the projects on my GOAL LIST and it feels wonderful...except for that little niggle of 'darn'...I was on such a roll!  But sometimes we have go with the way that the wind is blowing...or we will get mired in the mud....metaphorically speaking, of course!  No mud or wind around here...(have I told you how much I want RAIN?)

Maybe I will get back on track in September...?  We shall see...I will say this, August sure was a FUN month!! :o)))

Anyway...I hope that you have a FUN Friday and happy stitching!~P  


  1. My August has flown by too. I'll hit the ground running after our County Fair is over in September. Great finishes Glynis

  2. Two more gorgeous quilts by Glynis. She sure is amazing. And you're right, I don't think she sleeps.haha

  3. That Glynis.....she's amazing. I wish I had her mojo right about now. I think I went 6 weeks without picking up needle and thread and I was miserable. I was having fun, but the hand sewing action seems to calm me. It's definitely my therapy! I'm a huge Kim Diehl fan too and love all her books. I read them more than I sew from them. LOL

  4. Glynis has done it again. I have to agree with about the titles of books from those particular designers. Cute marketing idea, but I can't keep them straight either.

  5. Beautiful quilts and I do love Kim's designs, I have a few that I want to make.


  6. great quilts, sounds like you like all of us have a long list of to dos

  7. Glynis inspires us all! I had to laugh about the Simple books...I have a couple and keep getting them mixed up!

  8. I saw this Kim D one at our local quilt are's gorgeous! Keep having fun!
