Happy Birthday to me:)

My birthday was yesterday but I celebrated most of last week:) Went to a retreat with some friends and had a whole lot of fun!!!! Oh and even got some sewing done!
So needless to say there was no quilting going on:(

I do have a few pictures....




First is Rosette 10a:)
3 more Spargo birds are done:)

And I got my quilt back from the quilter:) Bet you thought you would never hear that from me???
Well Staci has a computerized long arm system and I really really wanted circles on this one!!! And it is really really hard to do perfect circles freehand!
All the fabrics are hand dyed by a lady from Austin and the teal is just Kona. I have a scrappy binding already made and will post a picture of it when it is all done:) It is all mine:)
Should get some quilting done next week since I am finally home for most of it!!! Hubby ripped the floor tile out of his bathroom so next weekend we will purchase the last needed items and pout the floor down on the 4th:) It is getting done:) Have an awesome we…

Hope all the Dad's had a great day! Hubby had both kids call and got a gift card from Cabela's:) He also got to mow today:) LOL! He would of yesterday but we finally got new phones:) YEA!!!! So of course that takes a few hours and then more hours to program the way you want:) We went from a Galaxy 5 to an LG7 ThinQ... a definite upgrade in picture quality and speed! All the accessories will arrive tomorrow from Amazon:)

Have no idea where the week went but it did and fast!

Monday quilted, Tuesday was lunch bunch, Wednesday quilted and took MIL out for her 91st bday dinner, Thursday errands all day, and Friday quilted. Not too much to show you though:(

Full feather row on the top border.

Then a great dinner at Cheddars back home:) So a fun filled day.... we were at the eldest granddaughter recitals yesterday:) She had 2 dances at the noon show and 2 more at the 4 pm show:) They all do such a great job!!! And she made company so now we get to attend competitions also:)

Of course I pretty much quilted on the Judy Niemeyer most of the week:) It is all done:)

I got my temporary crown and also went on a road trip with me bee. So will need a day off just to catch up:) The road trip had us heading to Elm Mott to the Simply Fabrics Shop and

HI all:)

Busy week! Don't know where it went!
I quilted Monday and Tuesday, finished my root canal on Wednesday, errands and haircut on Thursday and then more quilting on Friday. Unfortunately I don't have anything finished to show you this time:( The Judy N quilt is taking up all my time!

Then yesterday I decided while Hubby was doing the yard work I would clean the windows and wash the curtains in the living, dining room and kitchen. Well that lead to an all out Spring cleaning!!! So now all 3 rooms are sparkling:) yea!!! I even waxed my wooden floors in entry and hallway:) The bedrooms didn't get anything done:( We are planning on painting Hubby's room so it will get cleaned then:)

Hubby also got his bathroom painted and the light put up:) YEA!!! Next is pulling up the old flooring and doing any repairs and then laying down wood looking vinyl:) It is coming together:)

SO the only pics I have are these:

A look at the quilt I have been quilting......
The new light fix…
