This has been the best week ever in awhile:) SIL was here all week so I got to go out to lunch with the girls, get my haircut, go to a play, quilt and sew:) yea!!!! Of course I am back on duty starting tomorrow and will be on for a week. We are trying this to give us more of a break then the 4-5 days we were getting before.

Ok now to the fun stuff.....
This is Marlene's Veterans quilt.
I looped with stars on the top half above the poppies and just looped on the lower half.
Love love the batik backing!!!!
Corolla is ahead for Christmas with this quilt! She still has to add buttons to Santa's face.

Hello all!

I am so exhusted from night calls from FIL. I have a hard time sleeping and if I am woken usually do not ever go back to sleep:( So I have been functioning on about 12 hours of sleep the past 3 days:( SIL is coming tomorrow and we are going to try a week on and a week off. I am behind on everything:( So needless to say I have pics but not much quilting.

Ok I got one quilted last weekend... I think I showed a peek last week:)
Love this monster panel!
Marlene just lets me play!
It was a nice day that day.... we had tons of rain ... well ok almost 3in last week and that is unheard of in Texas in July! This how Bob sits every morning on my lap as I am reading emails:) He has become the official studio cat.
Please take my good side!

Hope everybody is sewing a bunch!!! I am sneaking in a bit every once in awhile:( Wish there were more hours in the day but I would probably sleep more then:) ha!
The in laws are getting PT twice a week and a nurse coming so there are 4 days a week with things going on... add a Dr appt for FIL this week, Guild Mtg and I have a Dr appt Friday and you can go ahead and call this coming week over already:( Oh well there are always the weekends:)
Talking about weekends..... nice transition Eh? SIL came in Thursday so I ran errands and met Hubby for dinner. Fri I quilted and had a full day for me:) Yesterday Hubby and I ran away to Buda TX. They have a lovely Quilt Shop that I have never been to... how did I miss that one? They just moved to their new location in April. Lots of fabric and gifty items.... hence the name... B&B Quilting and Gifts. Found some Moda trims, a Bird Brain pattern... love them!, and small book of embroidery designs:)

Love the quilt in the stone!

Surprise!!!! Yes I am still alive and kickin:)
Just been caring for the folks and quilting when I can.
Ran away last weekend to the farm house in Giddings. It was my bday gift to myself:) The girls and I had a grand time... lots of laughing, eating, and wine:)
MIL is doing WAY better!!! The Dr took her off 3 BP meds and now she is back with us:) She kept falling asleep... her bp was in the 80's:( No idea why her Dr did that to her. A second opinion is always good! She is going to Bingo and helping around the house. She also is dressing herself and doing her own hygeine:) yea!!!!
Now if we could get the FIL better we will be doing good! He is dizzy from his meds... has a bunch of specialist appts coming up so hopefully that will help. He is getting weaned off 1 BP med but it was replaced with another:(

Well this will be pretty picture heavy as I am cramming in 3 weeks of stuff:) Will try to be better on posting:)
