Latest book

I finished reading Major Pettigrew's Last Stand, by Helen Simonson.  What a fun read!  Not a deep story, but fun and light.  I love a good character and Major Pettigrew didn't disappoint.

Fun little wall hanging

I love ruler work.  I find it very relaxing, so this project was just what I needed.  Sue did a great job piecing it!

I loved how the treatment in the dark blue border turned out.   Too bad it wouldn't show up in a photo =(

I love spring!

   It's getting harder and harder to stay indoors and focus on work.   I keep going outside to check on my plants.   Here's a few quilts I managed to squeeze in.  Once the heat hit's I'll be in my studio with the AC cranked up all day!   Hopefully I'll be cranking out quilts all day too and getting back on schedule.
Fun colors! 
Sometimes I like the back just as much as the front!
One big mama!  Someday I'll make one of these....someday.....
I LOVE how happy this quilt is.  I would have been just fine if the owner never came to pick it up lol.

Not happy with Blogger right now =(

Happy mothers day!

One of my fondest memories of my mother is her hats! Here she is (far left) trying some of the hats she made on a couple customers. When hats began to fall out of fashion she switched to wedding crowns and veils. I loved playing in her studio, those veils were far better than the half slips I used to wear on my head for dress up. I was blessed to grow up with two amazing parents. The best ever!!!

And this is how I remember her most. Smiling, bright eyed and wearing a colorful moo moo in her garden. I wish my kids could have met her, she was such an amazing and talented woman. Not one of us 7 kids ever heard her say a negative word against another person. Gossip simply wasn't in her vocabulary. She used to learn a new word everyday and used it in sentences when we got home from school. Which usually ended in fits of giggles. I remember her laying on her death bed hemming a dress for me. She was too sick to even sit up but she wanted me to have that dress for the dance. Love you mom!
