Hi all!

Well I have to say Quilt Con was just..... AWESOME!!!!! The quilts were awe inspiring!!!  Took a bunch of pics but can't decide which ones to post:) It was set up beautifully, not crowded so you could actually look at the quilts! Love that! Also great vendors! The major peeps were there too to show off their new items...Coats and Clark, Moda, Crafty to name  a few:)

I only bought 2 books by Angela Waters and of course got them signed :) Yea:) Insert small giggle here:) Should of taken a pic with her:( Oh well.....

Ok so before I go any further.... FIL has Follicular Non Hodgins Lymphoma. It is a lazy cancer:) But it is stage 3. Hubby is getting him moved to a rehab facility next week and then after 2 weeks of gaining his strength they will start a regime for his cancer. Since I am not there I get all the info second hand and not always correct:( So this is the latest info I have. Hubby is planning on flying home in a week.

I have been busy while I am by myself and have bee…

Hello one and all:)

What a whirl wind week it has been here!!!! Hasn't stopped since I got home and there is no end in sight!

Not much customer quilting being done this week. Did get one baby quilt done and have a big one still loaded and waiting to be finished. Life has gotten in the way once again:(

My Fil is in the hospital in Fl so hubby flew down and will stay until he is well enough to travel. He and his sister want to bring both parents back to Texas so we can care for them...they are finally on board. They are both almost 87.

Of course I can't do anything from here except pray and get their house ready for them. They live next door when they are here which is real handy now! My work will come after they arrive...... I am thankful to have them as inlaws and will do everything I can for them:)

Ok now on to the fun stuff!

Well with Valentine's Day there were gifts to be made:) This is my grand daughters shirt I emb with mylar...too cute!!!

This is the Bunkhouse

    I walked everyday about 3 miles and took a few pics of things I saw.
