May 26, 2013

Wow what a week!!!!

I only got in one day of quilting as I was on the road the rest of the week:)
I did quilt on Mon but only got 1/2 way with a king size. Will finish it tomorrow so you will get to See it next week:)

Ok so Tues was lunch bunch group so we went out to eat and then visited for  a bit. Large storm coming so we all left early and I didn't go to guild mtg that night.

Wed Rosemary and I met and she drove to Waco so we could get a few tips and tricks from the amazing Molly! She has a quilt hanging in Paducah...I know.. wow!!! Learned a few things so will have to try them out:)

Thurs was errand day and I finished the Illusions Twister top:)

Then on Fri we went to Kerrville for their quilt show:) Lots of beautiful quilts!!!! Of course had to stop at the quilt shops... Creations in Kerrville and One Quilt Place in Fredricksburg. Oh and we had to eat so we stopped at Bluebonnet Cafe in Marble Falls for breakfast and then on the way back for Happy Hour.... slice of pie and coffee:) Yums!!!!
And it rained most of the day:( We SO need the rain though! We got 1 1/2 inches so the flowers were ever SO hsppy!

Of course yesterday was my recoup day!!!!

Ok so now pics:
Benjamin's First birthday is coming so his mommy wanted his Auntie Lou to embroider some tshirts. The theme is Monsters:) Too cute!!!

 
The Illusions top is done:) This is before the borders are added.

Now it has borders:) It is in line to be quilted... just have to figure out how:)

I won a pattern during the Quiltmaker Blog Tour from Relatively Creative Patterns.  Love this one!!!! Thanks again Lisa and Heather:)

                                     My Hydrangeas are SO pretty!!!!
 
Ok now to the pie:)
This is a whole Chocolate Meringue Pie for the Bluebonnet Cafe in Marble Falls.

                                   These are pics before it's cut:)

Here is a slice... is that meringue the highest ever seen?

 
Super yums!!!!! And the meringue will last for the few days it takes hubby and me to eat the whole pie:) It never sweats or falls. Just amazing!!!!
 
Now I am hungry for some pie:)
Happy sewing!!!!
