Hi ya'll:)

I had a wonderful birthday week:) I went with some friends to Giddings and LaGrange and spent a few nights:) One night was in a Motel 6 because the AC was not working at the farm:( We survived and all met in my room and drank wine and played Quiddler:) There was a show in Giddings and of course we went to the Museum in LaGrange and all the shops:) FUN time!!!!

The grand kids came over today and we had a pizza party:) yea!!!! Man I am SO tired after they leave!!! What energy they have!!!!!

So needless to say I didn't get anything quilted:) I did get a little bit sewn before I left... the quilt on the frame will hopefully be done tomorrow or maybe Tuesday.

When I posted Puppy I had forgotten to place the picture I used next to it. 
My 2 BOM are done:) I am keeping up pretty well with it!
Well enjoy the week and I should have lots more to show next time!!!!
Happy Quilting!


Happy Father's Day!

Hope all the Father's are having a great day! Hubby is taking his mom to cemetery to see his Dad. Then lunch and bingo and his day is full:)

The temperatures have been turned up and so has the A/C!!

I was home all but one day last week so got lots done!!! Yea!!!

My Texas quilt all done:)
I quilted loops and stars all over.
Gave it to my sister in law.
Sarah made this beautiful Dragonfly quilt.
I gave the dragonflies antennae and there were swirls all around!
You can really see the leaves and curls in the border.
Sue made this Alaska Attic Windows. 
She had bought the kit when she was in Alaska. She is going back for a quilt cruise next month:)
Just a large stipple all over is what she wanted.
                                                      Carola made this lovely vase quilt.
She cut up a panel and then filled in with the blue.
I outlined all the flowers and vases and then lots of curlz!
Her backing fabric.
Erlene made this beautiful Jewel Box quilt.
I had 2 different plans d…

Summer has arrived:(

Image
Well as the rain has stopped, the humidity has risen and the thermometer has been turned up:( So if is 90 degrees it feels like 98:( UGH! This sis the part I don't like!!!! The older I get :) the less I can handle the heat:( But then life goes on:)

Friday evening I was sitting and enjoying a nice glass of wine after a wonderful bee meeting when I heard a crack! Went outside and saw that a big limb on my MIL tree had fallen on her house. We are thinking very gently as there was no damage:) yea! But of course we spent our Friday night cutting it all up and moving to curb for pick up on Wednesday. Always scary when your hubby is on a roof with a chainsaw!!!! But we got it all done and probably sweat out a gallon of toxins in the process:)

Very busy week and weekend so far! Lots of quilting and yesterday we went to grand daughters recital. Man are the little ones a hoot!!! Hayden is 5 so she was the 2nd youngest group. I loved the show and especially when she yelled "Hi Nana"…

June has arrived:)

Image
Yes June has finally arrived and it brought more rain:( We had over 2 inches last week:( I am hoping that is all for a week or 2 as we really need to dry out! We have not had it as bad as others so we do count ourselves lucky!

June 1 is also my business anniversary:) I made it 5 years so far... yes so far..... I hope to make it 5 more years:) It is the longest I have very been at anything except my marriage, my children and some friendships. I usually only last 4 years at anything I had jobs in before... I get bored:( You guys keep me learning all the time! Thank you:)

I did get some quilting done this week. I have one still on frame about 1/3 done so will show it next week.
Started back with a easy stipple on this cute Doggie strip quilt for Margaret.
Used a variegated thread on the top.
And on the backing. Margaret also stitched this beautiful Rose top. She has beautiful stem stitching!
Outlined it and then did curlz all around.
Love the leave and curlz pattern from Swirls and Twirl…
