Ok summer has unofficially arrived her in Texas:( Once the A/C is on it usually stays on. We did have a few lovely days of rain....unfortunately some in Texas had tornadoes and other destruction:( Please say  a little prayer for them!
The rain did help our yard and the flowers that just grow around here without my help:)

Funny how one sunflower just grows in the middle of the yard:) That's my studio on the background.

This is Lori Beth's ginormous quilt:)
It is a king size monster:)
She wanted it to be reversible if she gets tired of one side.
So I quilted it with just white thread.
And did loops and e's:) She loves it!

Hey hey hey it's May:) ha ha!!!!

Was a fast and furious week with lots of things going on and the weather was unpredictable! Was 87 on Wed and then the high for Thurs was 56 and that was right at midnight? Wow!!!! The main thing was no snow!!!! We broke lots of records! I do remember an Easter where we built a snow bunny.......

                                          This was in April 2007.

Ok enough fun! Here are my accomplishments for the week:)

                                  First up is Christina's Star quilt

Love the swirls in the surrounding blocks:)
Here is the back.... too awesome!
Ok new customer that needed a Bday gift for his wife.... the next day! Men!!! He had just gotten the chairs in and while I was at it could I make his too:) Sure!
So had to make labels instead of stitching directly on the chairs as they did not come apart.
He was happy so I was too:)
