Quilting again

I've been quilting again and testing a few new rulers. I LOVE them! (Will post more about them after the testing period) After a couple weeks off it feels like forever since I quilted, I feel renewed. Here's a cable border I haven't done in a while. I forgot how much I like this treatment. Nice and clean.

I never tire of clean lines.

I've quilted many lighthouses before but never any like these. Fun!! Gotta love a little whimsy in life.

A little more whimsy....... love me some jumbo flowers. (New rulers for the sash)

Amoebas....hard to see in this small picture, but their there. (click on pictures to enlarge)

And finally a full picture of the first quilt. I am loving the border on this quilt! I am so lucky to get such fun quilts to work on. What a variety = )

The other day Kay posted a picture of her "Gramcrackers" hand. (great name!)) I loved it! Hands in a photo really speak to me, and hers was just precious. You could feel her spirit and imagine the life she led. It made me want to know more about this wonderful woman.

Here's a photo my niece Cassie took a few years ago. I love it. Hands tell such stories, don't you think?

And here's an oil that my sister Robin did of my daughter Amy's hands holding her daughter Emma as she met her new little brother Liam for the first time. You don't need to see more than a mothers hands to see the love she feels.

When I was little I loved my grandpa's hands. I loved how they felt and how he was missing most of his finger tips from woodworking accidents. (Once when he cut off a finger grandma cut a hole in a little box and stuck her finger up threw the hole and laid it on some cotton with a touch of ketchup. She'd ask us kids if we wanted to see grandpa's finger and then wiggle her finger when we lifted the lid. Ahhhh memories. Grandparents are the best!)

Book club report

Typical B&B book club meeting. No one read the book so we're postponing the discussion until December and the person who was assigned to bring food thought it was next week. So we ate yummy fruit, giggled and planned a girls lunch date for next week and a BBQ with the men next month. We are SO not about the books. Oh and of course we discussed going to the midnight showing of Eclipse. No wonder all our brainy friends quit on us lol.

June's book

I finally decided to start listening to this months book for book club (since we discuss it in 3 days). I hope everyone is reading it, it should make for a great discussion.

I love book club! I look forward to seeing my friends, eating, laughing, telling stories and occasionally even discussing a book. I don't think we have ever had a month were we all read the assigned book but we sure have fun!! I think we're more about the giggles and field trips.

Ah-ha momment

While driving home from Costco and discussing some of my newest food allergies Chad laughed and said "Maybe your just allergic to all foods now". Brilliant! I blurted out " Oh my gosh I'm not fat! I'm just really swollen from food allergies, the more I eat the more I swell...and if I quit eating the swelling will go down"! So there is my answer. I will never diet again. I will just handle my allergies better. Tee hee. Now doesn't that sound better than a diet?
