I joined The Old Red Barn Quilt Along and these are the fabrics I pulled from my stash. This should be a fun thing to do...every week for 6 weeks the directions will be posted on what is next to do...this week...gathering fabrics and week cutting...etc. There are prizes every on the Janome button and you can get all the info.

Here are 35 9 patch blocks I made foir crazymomsquilts Block A Day 9 Patch Quilt Along. I squished them all together to get in the picture. This is another fun quilt along.
Below are the 2 1/2" squares I cut from my scrap basket...I think I can get LOTS more blocks from these.
My block for the Around the World Quilting Bee has been received...but, I am still waiting for the block from Brazil...seems like it's never going to get here!

DOLLHOUSE BOOK finally finished! Complete with embroidered paper doll, clothes and house furnishings. This is the front, garage has car inside.

This is the back, shed has a lawnmower and a bicycle inside.
Here is a shot of the kitchen...the 'rooms' open in a circular fashion. The kitchen has a stocked fridge and freezer. The oven opens, inside is a ham baking...or go to the freezer and take out the turkey!

Here's the cozy living room. You can see the little doll lounging on the sofa watching TV.

Here's the bedroom. The cozy quilt is attached to the sheets. There is a tray with a snack on the bedside table.

The armoire is open to reveal the doll's wardrobe.

This is a bathroom to feel 'special' in. The vanity opens and hold bathroom necessities!

Here's Margret in her Christmas shirt from her sister, Linda.

My First Blog...Margret Mary's Place

Well here it is. After seeing sooooo many interesting and beautiful blogs, I've decided to try one for myself. I've chosen Margret Mary's Place after my little 'hot dog' Margret Mary. She's as cute and as sweet as can be.
One of the best reasons to start this blog is that I joined the Around the World Quilt at SummerSadie and Crazy Mom Quilts quilt along...Block a Day!
I am really excited about being able to post pictures and make posts.
I don't know my way around all this yet, but hopefully I will learn as I go.
It is going to be great fun being a part of this Blogging World.
