Oct 19, 2014

Fall  back:) Yea!!!!!!! Will see how long it will stay this time:)There  an old saying.." If you don't like the weather just wait a bit and it will change:)" Ha ha!!!!

Well got quite a bit of quilting done this week:) I have one on frame that I quilted on for 2 hours  on Thurs and then spent 4 1/2 ripping it all out:(  It is reloaded and I have been working it since... ast1/2 way done with it. Hope to have it finished by the next post or at least by the time I leave for Houston Show:) Yes I am going this year!!!! You would think that with it being just 4 hours away I would go every year but "things" would come up and I couldn't go. Mostly when I was an Election Tech because that was the end of Early Voting and we would have to get ready to set up for Election day. Since I resigned from that last year to care for in laws that were suppose to stay forever but then went back to Fl.....I have more time:)

I have a wonderful dentist appt tomorrow...  had my cleaning on the 6th and then on the 9th I flossed and popped a filling out:( Finally got an appt for tomorrow... they aren't open Fridays and Mon was a holiday... Columbus Day. Hope he can just refill it and send me on my happy way!

Ok enough about me:) On with some pictures:)

First up is Megan's Christmas Tree.

I got to play so used a paisley fill around the tree and curved feathers in the corners

Here is the back:)

Had to order thread for Cam's Star quilt so it took a bit longer.
Sorry about the leaf shadows but it does make it look interesting:)

I LOVED quilting this one!!!! Love the negative space!

I filled it all in with swirls and pebbles.

Did Dot to Dot quilting with Angela Walters technique.

Look it's reversible too!!!!!
 

My sunflower is growing;) Only 28 more rows to go:)
 
 
Oh an update about the in laws... mostly because  know you are all wondering. I am still not doing any of the care. FIL came home Tuesday and SIL has been taking care of them. She left Friday night and will be back tomorrow so Hubby took over duty. Of course we had plans to go to LaGrange to visit the modern exhibit at the Quilt Museum. SHE said we could go and they would be alright but I could tell Hubby was not comfortable with that so I told him we could stay home... I could be mad either way! He was thankful and spends a little time with them but thinks they are happy to be on their own without HER hovering over them and telling them what to do all the time:) As far as I have heard they are doing well for their age:) ha ha!!!!
 
Have a super duper awesome week!!!!!!
