Hope everyone had a Blessed Easter:)
Quiet one here with a nice meal and hubby:)

What a week... I got hives.... have never had those before and never want them again! Have no idea what caused them either:( Am back to "my" normal finally:)

Got quilting done anyway:)
This is Pat's quilt for her grand daughter's wedding this summer.
She had collected purples for awhile:)
Just looped allover:)
Jean is a snowbird and made this quilt for the house here.
Not quite sure what the pattern name is.
You can see I swirled the background and big swirls in the flower petals. There were feathers in the border also:)
Elaine made this fall quilt for her son.
Her goal is to finish all her UFOs:) Don't we all wish we could get all of them done!
Just loops all over... love the backing!
Erlene made this Star quilt.
Of course love the modernism:) I quilted swirly feathers in the border and swirls in the background. The stars got matching colored quilting:)
She added the black along the…

From shorts to sweats!

As you can tell in the title we had a wonderful week of weather:) Yes 90 degrees with a million degrees of humidity until Friday night and then VERY cold North winds and back to ling pants.... huh wonder what next week will bring? No rain as predicted though:( Everything is green and the bluebonnets are blooming:) Just beautiful!!! Haven't gone out to take pics yet... maybe next weekend?

As I told you last week this was a pretty busy week and I was only home a few days....

Monday I was sick:( Tues I quilted and went to Guild.
Erlene made this beautiful blue Block of the Month quilt.
She wanted my fathers with a swirl so put them in the border. I also quilted each star a bit different.
Can really see quilting on the back:)

Wed I had an awesome class. It was how to turn a picture into a quilt. Learned SO much as this is out of my comfort zone. Just needs to be stitched down and embellished... have the next purrtrait picked out. This is Gemma.
Thursday errands and worked on class pro…

April Showers came early!

Hi all!

It seems that Mother Nature wants to be ahead of schedule as we got 3.5 inches of rain last week. It rained every day:( Yes we needed the rain but I needed the sun!!!! SO happy to see her again!

The temperatures will be up and down all week... up to 87 and down to 39 one night. I am thinking more sickness ahead! There are many that have had to go to the Dr for this bug going around... it is lasting anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months:( UGH! I don't have time for that!!!!

Was a nice quiet yet busy week here:)

This stunning Dessert Sky was made by Mary W.
I played with lots of feathers:) 
Used a variegated King Tut on the top and a solid on the bottom.
Was a pleasure to quilt:)
Ophelia made this adorable Poppy table runner.
She wanted the poppies to pop:)
There were half feathers on this one:) Used mostly black thread.
My Dahlia quilt all done for Chemo patients.
Another Chemo quilt all done:) Makes you feel good to know they are going to a good forever home:)
Well BB8 was all…
