girl's weekend!

Did you miss me? lol. I left yesterday afternoon for the night with some girlfriends to one of their inlaws cabin. Four of us and we stuffed my 8-seater van full lol! We had a FANTASTIC time. I took all my stamps with me, except the Christmas ones-i should have taken a picture of the box lol.

I managed to make 19 cards, my goal was 10. We got in a few walks, had a surprise run in with a bear. We knew there was one in the area. We went to go for a walk Saturday night, turned onto the street and he was RIGHT THERE-talk about a panic moment! And no, the picture is not zoomed in lol

Enjoy the pictures!

How long are we going for?

quilt storage

After Jim's grandma passed away last month, we were offered their dining room set. We ended up moving furniture all around to get all the pieces in. One was/is a liquor cabinet. I didn't know what to put into it when I realized with our furniture moving, I has lost a quilt rack spot. Found a new use for the liquor cabinet. I have many more quilts in the drawer below as well


If someone had handed me these fabrics and told me to make a quilt, I would have laughed. But seeing them together, how lovely are they! The daisy fabrics make this quilt happen-great job Kathy!

And I love the pieced backing

quilted using daisies galore


There is something missing on this card. Maybe the colors blend too much? I never did figure out what it still needed before I popped it in the mail. I may make another one and try to figure it out lol

some days

I hate quilting.

This is mom's Mother's Day gift. It was a kit. The center panel was not cut square. I tried squaring it up and ended up making it smaller than it should have measured and as you can see, there is a loverly bubble in the center. I'm going to have to double batting the center before I quilt it and hopefully that will fix the bubble. I do not want to have to take this apart!!
