100 degrees for the whole week:(

Image
Well July has finally arrived! I remember having these high temps as early as May and June some years but I think it will be here to stay for awhile:( We did get teased earlier..... Oh well we are always thankful for James Carrier and the invention of the air conditioner!

Have no idea where the week went!!!
Monday I quilted.
Tuesday the plumbers came and went and came again:) The faucet I bought was broken and they needed a part that was not on their truck. So I ran to get it exchanged and get the correct drain. By the end of the day it was done:)
Wednesday was sick all day:(
Thursday errands all day! Had to get more items to finish off bathroom and Calli went to vet for the first time. Now that was a hoot! She was rather pissed off about having to go and actually flipped around inside the carrier. The vet tried to calm here with a sprayed towel... nope she was not having that. So she finally did the scootch and pull and was able to give her her shots. She is about 6 months old and wa…

Happy 4th of July!

I know it's over but it was just last week... made Thursday feel like Sunday or Monday???
Hope everyone enjoyed the day! Hubby and I laid the flooring in his bathroom:) Today we put in the trim and will call the plumbers tomorrow:) Slow and steady:)

Since we were short 1 day this week I didn't get much done:(

Here is the memory quilt I have been working on for a customer. Will be adding a rail fence type border on each side with shirt leftovers. It needs to be wider.
Here is a peek at the Guild's raffle quilt. It should be finished tomorrow:)
And here is our lovely bathroom:)
And our vanity:) So glad this project is getting close to being finished! Next we will paint hubby's bedroom and replace his door... the cats have done considerable damage throughout the years.
We had almost an inch of rain this week???? It never rains in July!!!! Starting to cloud up so hope we get more today!!!
Busy week coming up! Hope yours is busy as well:)


100 degree weather has arrived:(

Summer part 2 of so many parts has arrived. We are to have 3 100+ days and then a cool front with 30% chance of rain for the end of the week. Just hope we are in the 30% chance area!

Spent most of the week quilting... you will see LOTS of pictures:) Yesterday we picked up the flooring for hubby's bathroom. We will be working on the 4th.... hope to have a lovely picture next week!

On with the pictures:
Sewed my binding on my hand dye quilt:)
Mary G sent this antique quilt home with me the last time we were in Dallas. I think her MIL or Great MIL made it.
The quilt was perfectly square and meticulous!
I am SO glad I am not doing the binding on this one. Left the border unquilted in case she wanted to cut them off... I would try to do them with a bias binding.
I picked a muslin backing... yes reversible:) I will deliver it next month.

Judy Mc is a Great Grandmother and started this one when she heard about it.
He is only a week old and it is done:)
TOO cute!!!
Kathy J always has the …

Happy Birthday to me:)

My birthday was yesterday but I celebrated most of last week:) Went to a retreat with some friends and had a whole lot of fun!!!! Oh and even got some sewing done!
So needless to say there was no quilting going on:(

I do have a few pictures....




First is Rosette 10a:)
3 more Spargo birds are done:)

And I got my quilt back from the quilter:) Bet you thought you would never hear that from me???
Well Staci has a computerized long arm system and I really really wanted circles on this one!!! And it is really really hard to do perfect circles freehand!
All the fabrics are hand dyed by a lady from Austin and the teal is just Kona. I have a scrappy binding already made and will post a picture of it when it is all done:) It is all mine:)
Should get some quilting done next week since I am finally home for most of it!!! Hubby ripped the floor tile out of his bathroom so next weekend we will purchase the last needed items and pout the floor down on the 4th:) It is getting done:) Have an awesome we…

Happy Fathers Day:)

Hope all the Dad's had a great day! Hubby had both kids call and got a gift card from Cabela's:) He also got to mow today:) LOL! He would of yesterday but we finally got new phones:) YEA!!!! So of course that takes a few hours and then more hours to program the way you want:) We went from a Galaxy 5 to an LG7 ThinQ... a definite upgrade in picture quality and speed! All the accessories will arrive tomorrow from Amazon:)

Have no idea where the week went but it did and fast!

Monday quilted, Tuesday was lunch bunch, Wednesday quilted and took MIL out for her 91st bday dinner, Thursday errands all day, and Friday quilted. Not too much to show you though:(

Margaret made this snugly quilt:)
Feathers in the border and loops in the center... she used a poly batting.
Full feather row on the top border.
Backing.
Finally another UFO is in the quilting closet. I think I made the blocks 10+years ago and finally made it into a flimsy. The red fabric I bought during our Waco trip with the Be…
