About candiharris

I'm married to an amazing man, have three adult children and two wonderful grandkids. Both extremely talented and in College( although I may be a tad prejudiced ) I love God, my family, my quilting, new recipe's and I attempt gardening.

The Process Pledge

I took the Process Pledge today and thought I’m really giong to try and keep it up. I just finished the binding on three quilts for a friend. They’re all three for her grandbaby, one is a baby quilt and the other two are a little larger than Crib size. They came out pretty good, but not without a lot of issues along the way. lol I have one more to do it’s a red, red&white stripes, and black and white with red scarves on puppies. It’s really cute. It’s flannel so won’t be used till winter I’m sure. It’s almost the size of a twin bed though, so it can be put on the floor and the baby can lay there and play. He’s just turning two months old now. I’ll post pictures of them later today. Have a great day all!

Lots To Do

This is the pillowcase I’m making to match the quilt for what we now are about 99.9% sure is a girl.  She’s due any time now, so now I get to go crazy with pinks. lol

Here’s the quilt I have on the frame to start tomorrow morning.   It’s pretty warm back there all ready, so won’t work on it tonight.  This is for a 12 year old little girl who is the new granddaughter of a dear friend od mine. 

Tops For The Girls and Baby are Done! yahooo

I finally got the quilt tops done for my dear friends son’s girlfriends two daughters. lol  I also got the two done for my daughters fiance’s two daughters.  Two are for Easter gifts and the other two will be given to them at a baby shower to be held at the end of next month.  There are two of the top one, that’s the top and the fabrics in the top.  There are also two of the second one and that’s the top and the fabric’s in the top.  The bottom one is a wonky one for the young girl who is 12.  I don’t think she would have appreciated the kiddy fabric.   I’ve also got two more going that are large baby quilts.  These were quick one’s to do because I don’t have a lot of time to get them done in.  I hope to start quilting them tomorrow or by the week end at the latest.

UFO Group

I belong to a UFO group and once a month we take one full day to sew.  It’s a Friday one month and Saturday the next.  We start sewing at 9 (or is it 10) in the morning and sew till 6pm.  We take a picture of what we’re working on and post it.  We check in periodically ro show where we are at.  Friday I worked on a fall quilt attempting to get all the blocks done.  I got them 2/3’s of the way done so will try to work on them a little more today. 

This is one of the blocks of the quilt I’m working on.  It’s not flowers in there, it’s actually turkey’s:) lol  The colors were so perfect for what I wanted that’s what I went with.   Hope to get some more done on it today.  I seem to get distracted very easily these days.  Have a great day!

New York

Well, we went to New York the 14th through the 21st of Dec. and what an incredible trip it was.  My brother Frank, my sister Loretta, my daughter Jo and a dear friend of ours Dianna all went.  We stayed in an apartment in Manhattan which was really nice because it gave us so much more freedom.  We all took different pictures of the various places we went so I have some and the others have the rest.  Soon we’ll be able to get them all together.  We saw the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall, went to see In The Heights at the Richard Rogers Theater, went to the Empire State Bldg, Central Park, Times Square and on and on and on.  We even got caught in a blizzard.  When we went to the theater it was snowing, but when we came out it was a blizzard! lol  We had a ball.  We hiked to a restaurant and had a late dinner, then hiked down to the subway and took it to within two blocks of where we were staying.   The snow was absolutely gorgeous, a dream come true when you’re in NY this time of year.  Here are a couple of pic’s one from the Empire State Bldg. (it was foggy so visibility was low) and the other of the Plaza Hotel.  The first one is Times Square, which is always packed with people!!
