Keep on movin'….

 Just a sneak peak at my Material Girl's Challenge quilt. I love the colors! It is very "fall-looking".  I may have to hire someone to quilt it to get it done by the deadline!
I am finally decorating with some of my quilts. One of the extra bedrooms was perfect for a day bed and my antique sewing machine. I am still waiting for my husband to help me hang my quilt rack so I can hang more quilts-he's not so excited about that!

Fun in the sun..

We have been busy working on our backyard at our new house. Since this picture was taken, the bricks  have been removed and my husband dug a trench along the fence for drainage. We hope to have cement poured soon. We also had alot of dead trees removed along our back fence. I have been able to sew a few of my challenge blocks together. It is supposed to be a house theme-can't show any pictures yet!
I was able to give my great-niece Cadence her quilt at our Father's day party. She loved it! I was very suprised at her reaction-she was very pleased and gave me a big hug :) Cadence is the girl standing in the pink shirt. (notice all of the dirt surrounding our pool-we have alot of work ahead).

Block of the Month April and….

I finished my April blocks a little late. Started on May's blocks and ran out of one of my fabrics. I was trying to use my stash, but oh well, had to buy more fabric! Can't believe we only have a few blocks left. Then on to the Applique!

Material Girls party in Los Osos

This is the quilt and pillow I made for my niece's birthday. They just moved into a new home and I thought this would be great for her new bedroom.

Quilt retreat


I recently went on a quilt retreat to Cambria with these lovely ladies. I did not get my quilt top done, but had a great time gabbing, watching movies, and quilting….oh, I forgot, eating too! Love these kind of weekends!

Siblings...


My aunt came to visit this month and loved my Mom's purse I made. So she asked if I would make one for her and her daughter. Of course, I could not say no…so these two purses are being shipped to Texas this weekend.  Sibling rivalry and all that…...
And this beauty bloomed from one of our trees in the backyard. It was planned to be removed, but now that I know what it can produce, I think it will be spared :)
