Hot, hot, hot!


It has as you can see a hot week! I guess it is August though:) I am ready for the kids to go to school and I bet they are too!!!
Was a great trip to Dallas area this past week! We went shopping at some of my favorite shops and also attended the Plano Quilt Show. Some beautiful quilts for sure!
Before I left I did get some quilting done:)

Cam made this cross quilt for her in laws. It has their last name and wedding date on it.

She just wanted loops all over and it turned out so beautiful! 

And a solid back to show off my loops:)


This one will hang in her sewing room. I looped except where the pictures were.... the 4 corners and center... those I outlined.

This is the sewing block:)

Once again you get to see all my quilting:)


This is my shopping haul:) Yes there was a cat theme going on:) You know I really need to make a quilt with all my cat fabrics one day:)

Am home most of this week:) yea!!!!
Will crank up the AC in the studio and quilt all day:)

Hope ya'll have a great week and let me hear those machines a humming!

August is here.....

Wow hard to believe August has arrived and with rain and cooler temps??? Surprise!!! We are due more rain and the high on Tuesday is only 84???? We are normally in the 100+ so it is definitely welcomed!!!

Quiet week this week with me being home all week:) Well I did have to get groceries...so yes I quilted:)

Lori Beth made this cute Doxie quilt for her MIL for Christmas.

I just free motioned a wavy line all over it... really modern effect.

She put this sweet Flamingo on the back

My chemo quilt is all done:)

Here is the back... just used leftovers:)

My newest project is coming along.... I am using my FIL's shirts for this one. It is a Bonnie Hunter pattern. I  have all the neutral cut into strips and am working on the darks now. 

Judy made this sweet ABC quilt for her grand son that sis due in Nov.

Really played with it:) Hard to see all the quilting on the pic.

Sweet flannel backing fabric.

Martha won the BOM from guild last year and made this quilt with those blocks.

The ornaments all used different fabrics and backgrounds.

Was fun quilting them all somewhat different:)

Here is a pic of the backing fabric.

Made some pee pee tepees for a gift:)

My Lucy Boston is coming together rather nicely:) Only 3 more rows and a border to go:) I think I will get it finished this year:) I am so ready to start something new.... my Millifore!

Hubby and I have been dieting since we came back from vacation... he has lost 18 lbs and I have lost 12:) Really unforgivable that men lose faster then women!

Hope everyone has an awesome week... I will be gone for most of it so there will be a lot to tell next week:)
