Up and down week..

Image
I truly mean up and down. The allergies have triggered vertigo so I am fine sitting still or laying down but once I am up and moving so is everything else:( UGH!!! It's an inner ear thing so more antihistamines... have had it before but it's been awhile:( Feels like your drunk without the wine drinking:(

I did get a few things done though...

Gayle made this runner for her church.
Just rays of love in the quilting!!!
Pat made this Doxie quilt as a gift for a visiting friend next month:)
Love that the pups are on the back also:) Just loop meander.
Ruth Ellen made this chemo quilt all from her scrap stash:) Awesome!
Just loop meander quilting.
As you can see just simple quilting this week since I don't know how long I would feel well enough to quilt. Have a more complex quilt loaded for this week already... high hopes:)
Millie is all done except for her fill in border pieces. I have ordered 3 yards of Kona Hyacinth for that:) So finished up the 3 Spargo birds I have been negl…

We got rain:)

Had to believe it would rain in August in the great state of Texas but it sure did!! Of course my house didn't get much but Dallas area did!

Pat and I traveled North Friday morning VERY early to attend the Plano Quilt Show. Was a good show with tons of vendors... so many we did not see! A lovely lunch at Abuelos and then cards and drinks at Linda's house:) Saturday was MABD in Allen and then the drive home.

It rained almost all the way up after we left my house and about 50% of the way home. We SO need it!!! No complaining here!

I got the quilt that was on the frame finished and that was about it for the week... not sure where the days are going but they are going fast!

Here are my pictures:

This is Shelley's antique Trip Around the World quilt made entirely of Hexies:)
Lots of feathers:)
As you can see on the backing... I did change thread colors throughout.
Millie is all put together except that empty spot and the fill in pieces. Having a hard time figuring out what colo…

Not sure what happened to this weeK:)

The week got away from me... I had a sick day Monday,  quilted most of Tuesday, Wed quilted a bit and finally got my crown put on... they forgot about me:(

Thursday I was at vet office at 7:45 am to drop Calli off to get spayed, nails clipped, tail checked and get her boosters. That was fun! Tried to get hubby to catch her since she loves him more:) She tore him up with her nails:( So I finally caught her and stuffed her in the carrier... she is a bit wild:) Then went off to get groceries and take a nap. I got like 2 hours of sleep the night before... Jax and Waldo were NOT happy there was no food out and let me know it over and over again:( Brats! I got a call to pick her up at 2. She had a lovely cone on.... so when I opened her carrier she flopped around like a fresh caught fish on the ground:( Poor thing! She hid under my bed for about an hour or so to regain her strength and went into kitchen and flopped some more but by golly that cone was off! Was getting worried about her yest…

Busy Busy week:)

Hi everybody,

Got a lot of things finished up this week:)


Janice's Kitty quilt... and yes I did give it back to her after I was finished quilting it... LOL!
Had lots of fun quilting curlz on each kitty with matching thread:) They each had such a personality!
She had embroidered Jerry in the corner... he is taunting the poor babies!
Gray backing so you can really see the quilting:)
Hard to see but I quilted paw prints in the other 3 corners:)
Rosette 11a all done... have started the 12s and then to sew it all together:)
My biggest finish is Andrea's memory quilt made with all of her dad's shirts and pants.
Was definitely a challenge and I am SO happy with the end result!!
Hubby is holding it up so you can see it better:)
Yes there are even socks!
This sis the back.... bowling fabric, a baseball panel and more shirt fabric to get it the right size.

Had more scraps leftover so made her 2 pillows for her sons:)

My goodies I bought at the Quilt House in New Braunfels. They had …

I was wrong... 100++++ degrees all week:(

UGH!!! It is WAY TOO hot!!!! I am trying to keep some of the grass and the plants alive. Also Fuzzy has been coming in everyday... the other 2 will not:( I have seen them both panting:( Have been giving them fresh cool water twice a day... poor babies!!! Suppose to be more this coming week:(
This is the time in Texas I am NOT a happy camper!!!!

At least I was home all but one morning and I got back as soon as I could! But we do need to eat:) LOL!

So since I was here I got a lot done... I mean a lot!!! Wait for picture overload!!!

Dolly made 2 Judy Niemeyer runners. This is the first one.
Lots of pebbles....
back shows some of the quilting. Was definitely a different one but liked the way it turned out! I would try to make one of these but that would be about as big as I would go:)
The second one.
Lots of echoing and feathers:)
Love the spring colors!
