Howdy everybody:)

Man this taking care of old folks is hard! I remember taking care of the kids and I can certainly compare it to that! Of course I was younger then too:)
The Dr appts and the daily afternoon shopping trips are eating up all my time.

So needless to say not much is getting done around here but I did get to go to San Antonio Quilt Show and stopped off at Magnolia Pancake Haus.... yummy!!!!
This is a picture of my pecan waffles with peach compote and homemade whip cream:) The pecans are in the batter... they were so light and fluffy!!!! Will try the bacon ones next time... and yes there will be a next time!

Of course we had to stop at the Bluebonnet Cafe in Marble Falls on the way home for Pie Happy Hour:) I took a whole pie home and there is still some left but not much:) Love the high meringue!
Chocolate Meringue:) YUMS!!!! Hubby had the parents while I was gone. He lost them in Walmart 2 times:) Now he knows what I go through everyday:) He pretty much has them on week…

Hi ya'll!!!

The in laws arrived safe and sound last Sunday:) I am still adjusting to their schedule:( I usually did errands and such in the morning and then sewed in the afternoon well that is all different now. It takes them all morning to get ready to go shopping at 1:30-2 so I am not getting to much done:( Will have to figure something out as the quilts are stacking up! At least everyone understands:) Thank you!!!!

I did get one quilt quilted really fast on Mon and a few PL's and that is all the quilting this week. I have been getting a few more medallion blocks sewed and a bit of embroidery on the machine done.

Oh and yesterday was the babies birthday! Wow a whole year old!!!! We had a small invitation only party:) Which meant all the indoor cats got to attend:) There were party hats but they were not happily worn:( But the special Fancy Feast they all got for snack was wonderful... I am guessing so as there was none left:) he he!!! Would of put a candle on one can but did…

They will go a few hundred miles a day and then spend 2 days in Biloxi to gamble and spend time with my daughter:) We have the house ready just need to wash the outside down and mow:) yea!!!! I hired a sweet lady to clean for me me:) I am getting wiser:) haha!

I had a VERY productive week:) Too hot to do anything else:)

First up is Marylyn's Texas quilt:) Remember it was on the frame last week. I got it finished:)
I did paisley filler around all the letters.
She wanted a 1/4 in outline around each Prairie Point so I got to play with a ruler. Was pretty easy and then I filled it with loops.
Here is the back. She loved it and that is all that matters:) yea!
Next up is Heidi's baby quilt.
Did a loop meander all over.
She used a sweet flannel on the back.
This is Sue's Hidden Star quilt.
