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:)
