My oldest son is 17 years old today! Another son that makes me proud!

Thank YOU!

I don’t have as much time to comment on all of the blogs that I read lately. So it may seem that I’m not reading them. I am, as much as possible. And I want to thank all of you for sharing your lives and your sewing and your families with me. No matter how harried I’m feeling, how tense or distracted I am… when I see that Google Reader list show up on my computer screen my heart beat slows, my muscles relax and a smile spreads across my face just knowing I’m about to spend time with some really great friends.



Almost half done…

Hey, Debra and Rian, how about if I just cut the bottom half off and call it done?!!

LOL! Just kidding!!


Another Year

April 18, 2008

It is my son’s birthday today. I remember that day 15 years ago very well. I am happy to report that he turned out to be worth every minute of it.

Happy Birthday Michael!!

This week I am working on a quilt for Habitat for Humanity. My guild presents a quilt with every house that is built here. The quilt is a colorful 9-Patch with unbleached muslin sashing. I’m quilting a simple panto with roses and ribbons on it. It is sure to turn the new house into a home!

It’s Coming Together

April 10, 2008

You may have seen these photos before on Debra’s and Rian’s blogs.

They sent these parts and other pieces to me and I am putting them all together and quilting them up. (I shamelessly lifted the photos from their sites… Hi Debra! Hi Rian!) We have high hopes of getting this quilt into IQF this fall. Apparently there are some rules about showing the quilt before the show so I can only show you a peek. But here is a small peek.

I’d better get to the quilting table and get busy!!
