Happy Palm Sunday:) Easter is hopping right at us:) I did get a few projects finished in time:)

Beautiful days here!!! Love the sunshine and mild temperatures. Of course the kitties love the live TV shows... the windows are open:) ha ha!!!

Hubby and I ran off all day yesterday:) We went to Llano quilt show. A nice small show of about 100 quilts. Then to Inman's for BBQ lunch:) Then to local quilt shop. Then back roads to Fredricksburg to quilt shop. Of course we are that close to Kerrville so had to go to Creations:) Back through Fredricksburg to Marble Falls to Bluebonnet Cafe for dinner and took pie home:)

There were quite a few bluebonnets near Llano and Marble Falls:) I think there will be more in a  few weeks.

Ok on with pictures:)
Beautiful Bluebonnets!!!

Hello everybody:)

Busy week and lots of rain:) Am SO read for the sunshine!!!!!

Hubby and I went to see Colton Dixon... he was on American Idol... and Matthew west at the Expo Center just about 30 min away:) Terrific concert!!!! Love when we go do things together!!!

MIL stayed home by herself... has been doing that for about 2 weeks now since SIL left. She got really lonely on Thursday and hubby came home and got her convinced to go into a nursing facility. Of course he hasn't had the time to go get her signed up yet:( Maybe Tuesday. If there are no rooms available they do have like a hotel option... she can stay as long as she wants and then check back out. Told hubby to get her in that and she can wait until a room opens up for her. She is very social and being by herself and not being told what to do every minute of every day by FIL is finally getting to her. I on the other hand would love the new found freedom... oh wait  I already have that:) haha!!!

Got lots to show you:)
Lo…

Half way done with March already... where does the time go???

I should be in TN right now visiting a friend but family medical issues changed all those plans. Maybe another time?

Hubby and I did run away to Ft Worth last weekend for a huge Christian concert. Winter Jam 2015. There were 10 bands and Kari Jobe popped in for a song:) So really 11 performers:) We spent the night in a hotel right across the street from the convention center so no parking or traffic issues afterwards:) Great planning on my part!!!

Well got a little quilting done this week....

First up is Maleah's quilt. Not sure of the name of the pattern but really like it!
Tried to make it look like the fabric was really going over and under with the quilting.
Cool backing!
Cindy gave me a scrappy quilt to quilt and asked for loops all over:)
Loved looking at the fabrics and saying... I have some of that:) haha!!!
Backing.
Dolly gave me one of her daughters quilts to quilt. It is the jelly roll race but she made her o…

Well we had more ice and some sunshine this week... what a wacky weather year! We did have snow on Easter one year and I SO hope we don't this year!!!

Busy week but I did take a few days off to sew for me:) Just had no quilting mojo:)

This is what I did get done:
Gayle's wedding gift quilt:)
Love the reds, greys, and blacks all together. Used Featheration pantograph with a grey thread.
Back....
This is Jill's Ghastlies quilt.
I love the pattern and this is the first Ghastlies I have quilted:)  I told her to keep the border the way it is all angled:)
Close up.... loopies and circls.
Scaredy cat backing!
This is one of Maleah's. She made this all flannel for her grandson.
Love the feel of flannel!!!
Just looped all over and then did a little extra in border:)
These blocks were donated to Project Linus, put together by Cindy and bought by Shelley.
I was ordered.... um asked/begged  to finish the hand stitching.
I am SO not a fan of featherstitching but after hours and ho…
