Oct will be here in 2 days... wow!!!!

Oct 1 is my MIL's 65th wedding anniv. How totally cool is that! We are getting what family lives close together and going out to eat:) Should be fun:)

Drama has been quiet this week so I am starting to do less stress eating:) yea!!! I am to the point of just buying the next pants size and worrying about it next year... it is coming pretty fast anyway:)

Woke up this morning to a beautiful slow rain:) We got a few showers in
 the past few days and it has been lovely!

Had a nice day with the girls and we went to Round Rock for their quilt show. As always beautiful quilts but the bldg is to small so they can not be fully appreciated.

We ate breakfast at the Monument Cafe in Georgtown. All free range and local produce and all homemade:) The waiter was cute too:)

Here is what some of us ate.....
Had to snap this pretty fast as it was disappearing:) It's banana bread french toast with carmelized bananas and sauce:)

Howdy ya'll:) I am saying that with my best Texas accent:)

This was another fast and furious week... seems as all of them are lately!
The folks are doing good and besides son drama all is well here:)

We had 3 inches of glorious rain this week and a cold front so the windows have been open for 2 days now:) The kitties are loving it!!!! My pocketbook too!

Ok so here is what I did get done this week.....

This is Monica's Christmas Star. Really didn't want to give it back to her:) Guess that happens to us longarmers once in awhile!
I used my lessons from Angela Walters Dot to Dot class again:)
Here is the back!
This is Karen's Quilt. Not sure of the name but it is so soft and beautiful! We used another Army wool blanket as the batting. It is SO heavy! But that's what she likes.

Here is the star in the center. I did swirls to kind of set it apart from the rest of the quilt. Forgot to turn the picture... sorry.
Here is a closeup of the feathers in the inner border. Am lo…

Howdy ya'll!!!!
Another busy week around here! Not sure how I am staying sane except for my quilting and music:) Oh and my walks:) I am back to walking and it sure clears the brain matter:)
You would think with a short week it would be a quiet one but nope... always exciting with in laws:) ha ha!!! I asked hubby permission to leave MIL in Walmart one day.... never responded so had to bring her back:) ha ha!!!!

I did get some awesome quilting done:)

                        This sweetie is a baby quilt made by Judy:)
She cross stitched the blocks:) She lets me "play"
Love the backing too!
Christina's Sock monkey quilt.
Great idea just using yardage and adding a border:)
Another yardage quilt:)
I looped both:)
Oh what do I see.... yes I am quilting feathers:)
Karen wanted a wool Army blanket and batting in the middle. Rediscovered that wool makes me itchy esp when I had to piece it. Did quilt beautifully though!

Hung it on my design wall.... just love it! So did Karen! …
