 A beautiful church!
 This is a glass sculpture that was hanging in a hotel on the river walk....I think it was the Hilton or Hyatt ...there were 6 waterfalls as you walk through the hotel and you end up at the front of the Alamo.

March 22

Ok just noticed it has been almost 2 weeks since I have posted. But I have been busy:)
I have been quilting Marylyn's Stitchers Garden quilt and it was on the frame for a week....no didn't quilt on it everyday. Life got in the way. It is finished and shown below:) she did an awesome job on it!!!! She even made yoyo's for it......love it!!!!!!!! It is a fun quilt to quilt for me because I get to play in all the borders!
Ok back to life. Was heading to my first new "bee" mtg and got a flat:( So had to replace 2 front tires. Didn't make it to the mtg:(
This week we were lucky enough to get rain.... 6 inches of it in about 24 hours. Needless to say the studio got watered too:( So I had to suck 2 1/2 steam cleaner buckets of water out of the carpet.....no major damages. The cabinets and bookcase has a little water damage on the  bottom. Thank God as I was locking up for the day I put the batting roll on the quilter as it would of been damaged! I am getting to where I put everything up that is close to the front of the bldg just in case:)
Then yesterday I had to have the oldest of my cats put to sleep. She was getting VERY ill and at 18 I wasn't going to go to extreme measures:( So then to deal with the depression I quilted:) I had 4 baby quilts to do and got 3 done:) Also one got bound. I usually don't take pics of those unless they are extrordinary!So today I am catching up on my sewing...I am working on a Pumpkin BOM, a snowman BOM, and a row quilt swap. That should keep me out of trouble today:)

Loop Meandered this Civil War colored Flimm Flamm quilt for Sandra. Love the colors!





 Great yoyo in this pic!
 Love all the little border places to play!
 Redwork Easter from Bird Brain Designs. Yup all hand stitched and hubby painted the frame for me:)

Marylyn's Texas Proud Quilt





She machine appliqued the whole quilt. I did mine all by hand and they both turned out beautiful!!!!! A true Heirloom!

Mandy's Quilt

She wanted flowers and dragonflies scattered in some of the blocks.


Very Springlike:)

She got these fabrics on a shop hop.

I stippled around the chains to make them pop:)

March 6th

This is the quilt I quilted yetserday for a customer. It is a Flimm Flamm pattern using Civil War reproduction fabrics. All she wanted was Loop Meander quilting all over it. Love the colors!!!
I am also posting a picture of the 32 yds of fleece I got in today to cut, punch, and then crochet around for Project Linus. I usually buy a bunch when they are on sale and that holds me through the year:) Year before last I donated 106 fleece blankets. Of course now with the business I can't make that many but every little bit helps:)
