Quilting Fun


While I love the satisfaction of finishing a quilt, it isn't the only way to have fun with quilting. Fun also comes from the great outings with girlfriends, shopping expeditions with Grandma, or just sitting in my "thoughtful spot" chair perusing magazines and books. The thrill of the next project waiting just there on the horizon...

Happy Birthday Mom!

Last night I traveled to Hillsboro, my hometown, to celebrate with my 4 siblings and various in-laws, nieces and nephews. What were we celebrating??

My mother's 75th birthday!!


Doesn't she look great? We had such a fun evening. We met at LaCascada, a really yummy Mexican restaurant in Hillsboro. Mom had a couple of margaritas (several of us did!), and she was quite happy as the event drew to a close. *wink* She really had a good time! Well, we all did! It is such great fun to have us all together.

I haven't sewn a stitch since Saturday's event at History Day. No, I take that back...I did sit down at the machine and began constructing the star blocks on the French General Stars I've started. Did about 20 minutes of chain piecing...Minimal sewing, then...

 I do have quilting with the Frankfort girls this week - Friday morning. I plan to hand quilt on one of my Schnibbles.


Happy quilting, Friends!
