Broken wrist slows me down but not for long...

Yes, I broke my wrist on April 28 on the last day of skiing!  I have one more week to wear the cast and then I'm back in the saddle.  Meanwhile, I've managed to do some quilting, and a couple of other projects.  Here is a little toddler dress I finished today.  It's an experiment in "Whimsey".  I made yoyos with buttons, added ric-rac and ruffles.  The pattern is simple, only one piece, a yoke.  The rest is length and width to fit, with faced slits for armholes.

It's nice to see a new face...

I thought I'd pop in here and say HI and tell you about the website.  It's new.  It's simple. and it's live!  Check it out at  www.bonniesews.com   In the Annex you'll find a dress and a Crazy Floor Cushion!  Check back soon for more goodies.  Thanks...Bonnie
I am Bonnie Russell, owner and quilter, and my business is making beautiful quilts and making quilts beautiful. NABQC came about as a partnership between the love of sewing and hazelnut farming. That's how the name was chosen. My husband, Fred, is the nut farmer, and I do the sewing using many bolts of fabulous fabric. My studio is located in Dundee, Oregon, the beautiful Willamette Valley, in the center of a hazelnut orchard. Experience came with 42 years of dress making, 40 years of marriage to my wonderful, loving, supportive husband (34 years of nut farming), 25 years of raising three daughters, and now we have seven grandchildren to mentor in Future Quilters of America!

With a Statler Stitcher and Gammill Optimum Plus longarm quilting machine, a 14 foot table, and the drawing program AutoSketch, no project is too big or too small. Anything from hand guided meandering to custom digitized designs can be applied to a project to complete that labor of love.
