An Inklingo Finish!

I fnished my second, hand pieced quilt for this year! It's called Pies and Tarts, it's a Sue Daley pattern and was made using the Inklingo method. If you've never heard of Inklingo, you havn't seen the most exact way of piecing ever! I use it for the exactness of handpiecing but it can also make machine quiltng very exact and easy. Linda Franz, is the inventor and you can read all about it here.

Honey has a Passion Too

My husband builds hot rods....but this one is very special, this is the car he had when we were teenagers, he found it about three years ago...THE same car !!!!He bought it and totally rebuilt it! The upholstery isn't done yet but the body looks amazing. The colour is called Chanpagne and Root Beer, kind of like us. LOL It didn't look anything like this when he bought it but I Love love love it now!!!
By the way it's a 37 Plymouth!
