Had an awesome Birthday and thank you for all the birthday wishes:)

Loved all my gifts but have a special place for these:

These are hand knitted owls:) I saw them when I was doing the Birds Blog Hop and Patchahouli Moon had these on her blog. I sent the link to 2 friends that knit. One asked the other if she was going to make them. She said she would try:) Thanks Karin!
Just the sweetest!!! I did get a little quilting done this week but mostly sewing:) This is Kim's scrappy quilt. I just loop meandered with a variegated thread. Love the colors!

Hello everyone!
I am posting one day early since tomorrow is my birthday!!!! I will be 33 again:) ha ha!!!!
It has been a hot and busy week for me:)
So onward with the pictures:
This is a panel I had bought in Fl at Christmas. I used Texture magic and wool batting and quilted it heavily. You really can't see that in the front view but definitely on the back:)
This is the Calla all steamed and scrunched up.

A great closeup! I made a pillow for Joan's anniversary.
I was a winner:) Yea!!! This came compliments of Lisa from In The Boondocks blog. Thank you again Lisa!
My June Toes in the Sand BOM. Am really loving all the different blocks in this one! 
This is Jill's Tempest quilt. She always makes the neatest modern quilts. Because IT was so square she wanted swirls quilted on it so I used Deb's Swirls Panto in Grape colored thread.

Just beautiful!
This is the back. Love it!
This is what is in my hoop now that the Christmas quilt is finished. There is a picture below. I a…

Bee Field Trip Pics:)

Okay Kathy emailed these last night:

Here we are in front of the Quilt Museum door:) From left to right: Diane, Rosemary, Kathy, and me:) Even though it's not allowed to take pictures the lady in charge took one of us in front of the Mighty Oak quilt. It was made in 2005 and the maker is no longer with us. I went back a few times and always saw something different each time I went. They are her original designs and the crazy patch has lots of hidden treasures:) Brenda got to get in this picture with us:)
Rosemary and I caught looking at the yarn at the Quilted Skein:) Kathy went crazy when she saw this rooster outside of the Gerline's Quilt Shoppe so we had to pose and be still while lots of little grasshoppers jumped all over us! Lucky Brenda got to take the picture away from the critters:) Oh and it felt like 100+ in the sun!

We are at Meme's Quilts now:) I was talking to this gal about her computerized quilter. Learned a lot but still won't get one. I do way too muc…

Summer has arrived!!!
90 degrees with humidity is just yucky! I am walking at about 7 am and still dripping when I get home:( I could only walk 2 days this past week...I bought new shoes and they gave me  a huge blister on my heel:( I am thinking I should be back at it tomorrow. And I was almost up to 5 least that is the goal again:)
Was home and quilting most of the week. Oh and dog sitting for a really good friend that is moving at the end of the month.
Our bee also went on a great field trip on Friday. We headed 2 1/2 hours south to a town called LaGrange Tx. There is a wonderful Quilt Museum there:)You can check it out here:  Kathy took some pictures but I haven't received them yet but will post when I get them:) We also went to a few....4 actually quilt stores.
 First we went to All Around the Block in Giddings and if you couldn't find something you needed there you were out of luck:) Yes I found some Christmas green I need to make …
