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 been quilting and playing. Oh and losing a bit of weight:) haha!!! Sure it will find me again after he gets home.

So here are some pics of my work:

 

                           Here are the Project Linus fleece blankets I machine embroidered for Pat and Shelley. 21 total.



                  Sorry the giraffe is sideways....just turn your head:0 haha!!!

This is Ms Neva's Garden Party


I had a lot of fun playing:)

This is the back.....

This is Mary Ann's Mermaid quilt for her grand daughter.

Empty spaces mean fun quilting!

She didn't want any quilting on the mermaids.

Played with one of my new toys on a Project Linus quilt. It is the swirls board from Loricles. You can see it on the left...the yellow thing:) It did an amazing job on the quilt. Still need to practice a few more times before going to customer quilts. Have one loaded for practice already:)

Hope you had an sew lovely week and may it continue!!!!
