I have been gone so long blogger has changed.
What's up with that?
Where to even start.....
last week my
sister landscaper came down.
We shoveled 8 pickup truck loads of dirt,
6 pickup truck loads of mulch
and laid 122 rock wall blocks.
I just love to take vacation.
I did take off three days and headed to Paducah.
I drove 1320 miles. I had to drive back and forth everyday because
of Stevie but it was totally worth it.
I took a few classes and learned so much in each class.
I met some wonderful people and it was so nice to be around people that I could talk quilting with.
I also helped the economy as much as I possible could.
The quilts were absolutely beautiful. I took quite a few picture, mostly of the quilting, but the Show stated not to post.
I finished Jonah's quilt just in time to FedEx it to his mother for the Benefit. Jena, Jonah's mother, said there were a lot of nice comments and a lot of people wanted to win. The lady that won the quilt had told Jena when she was filling out her raffle tickets that she wanted to win it for her mother who has ovarian cancer. Her mother stays cold and she said it was the perfect size. The quilt and the other items they raffled off raised enough money to buy two helmets. They were shocked and surprised to raise that much money.
Thank you everyone that bought raffle tickets and made a donation.
I never got to take a really good picture because it was always raining. Pictures do not do justice. It was so pretty and very hard to give up, so I am glad that the quilt helped raise the money that it did.
I also managed to finish up another quilt. Some of you may remember last year I made a friend of mine a quilt out of his fathers shirts who had passed on.
I had wanted to use the scraps to make his daughter, son and mother a quilt also.
His daughter is graduating tomorrow from a local university with a nursing degree.
She has helped me through the years raise money for Stevie's BuddyWalk so I wanted to do something special for her.
another quilt from her Paw's shirts. I sent it to her today but she won't get to open it until tomorrow. She is receiving her pin tonight.
On the design wall tonight is a quilt for Teacher Appreciation Day.
This is going to be a quick one also. Stevie's teacher assistant secretly helped the
children paint a block.
I bought some really cute fabric in Paducah for the borders and sashing.
Got to run and start working on it, has to be finished by Wednesday.
I love stress!!
