    I would think that a princess quilt would always be popular! That was a lot of work, but how nice that you could come through for the grandmother, and her twin girls.

      Thanks so much! It was fun making the second quilt – the embroidery really turned out better, I think. ~smile~ Roseanne

    What little girl doesn’t love a princess? Very cute – you did a great job! Thanks for sharing on Midweek Makers!!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Susan! You persevered and got it to work, huh??!! Well, I thank you for that and for your sweet comments. I will try it myself next week – I know where you are if I have issues. HAHA ~smile~ Roseanne

    That was speedy work! Congrats on navigating all the stress to a couple of fun finishes.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Kate,
      Boy, you hit that on the nail! Every time I started getting anxious I just told myself no, there is plenty of time. Usually I would go OMG, OMG – I’m never going to finish this in time. HAHA Those ‘Stay Calm’ signs are spot on. ~smile~ Roseanne

  4. Roseanne, Congratulations on your speedy finish! You certainly went above and beyond. I can just imagine the tears of enjoyment and all the warm snuggles the girls will have. Great job! 🎉🎉❤️

      Aww, Cindy. That is too nice of you to say. I’ve been tracking the darn package and it still wasn’t delivered yet – so much for paying for 1-2 day service. I don’t know how USPS counts but this is day 3 or 4 when it was mailed on Monday! Good thing it was finished quickly. ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. This is such a cute and effective motif with the hearts in the plain blocks.
    I think you typify the old saying…if you want something to get done, ask a busy person to do it.
    My mind spins when I think of all I accomplished in my working life esp. compared to what I am doing these days. But then no deadlines is a reward of retirement too!

      Hi Jocelyn!
      I certainly agree that no deadlines are the reward of retirement! I hope you are enjoying it immensely – I am looking forward to that in 5 years. One can create their own deadline though. I try to do that with the weekly list – more as a focus to keep me on task. Otherwise I’m like, hmm, what do I need to get done? What am I working on now? HAHA ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. I do not know how you two get so much done…and even hold down jobs too! You must be like the battery bunny that just keeps going. I wish I had as much energy and productivity as you all. Beautiful quilts.

      Peggy! That is so sweet to say!! I guess we work well with deadlines – I recall that same thing with papers that were due in college. Once I say I’m going to get something done, I usually do. That’s why I was so darn disappointed with my October OMG fail. That is just not acceptable to me! Thankfully no customer was involved. ~smile~ Roseanne

      • When I was in college I had to do assignments as soon as I received them (on my job also now that I think about it) because I was always afraid something would happen to make me…..gasp….late! Thank goodness I have overcome that a little. 🙂

Please leave a reply - we would love to hear from you!
