Well our birthday month is coming to a close. I turned 47, dad 75, Kaelea 12, Derrick 16, and Ashlyn 21. When did I become so old. :P
I have been busy with my quilt construction. I have 3 at the machine quilter and another almost finished. I have finish my sister's purple quilt, Aunt Betty Jane one in earth tones, and still waiting on the blue/brown quilt. Will be happy when I have them all. Paying for the quilting is $ but so worth when you see how they turned out.
I am working on a pale yellow and blue floral quilt. I changed my mind and this is the one for my friend Ros. The Best Friend quilt were just now her colors and would have stuck out in her living room. So this new quilt will be better suited for her living room and personality.
Darian's quilt is also at a different quilt maker, I just couldn't figure out how to make a t-shirt quilt with 3 t-shirts. So a friend offered to make the top and Cheri will do the machine quilting. He graduates on May 14th so will have to hurry them up a bit. I hope he likes it.
I actually spent Saturday down in the scrap room. I joined a page swap for Inspired in May. So I had to create two different layouts then multiply it 9 times for a toatl of 18 pages. I completed them and Timonthy mailed them yesterday for me. I had everythin I needed at home. Amazing used my stash, I did look over some other pages from a different swap to get some Inspiration from, it worked.
We just finished our spring break, bad thing for Derrick and I as we were sick 3 days from a stomach bug. We had to cancel our trip to see Ros and Will. I was so sick I couln't eat all of the chocolate covered strawberries sent to me from a commander in Iraq. I sent over a whole bunch of cards, store bought and homemade, plus a box of cookies. She sent the strawberries were a thank you. I was so surprised, never expected that wonderful gesture.
Jean, Mom and I are off to Mom's weekend at Ashlyn's sorority in Kirksville. We will leave on Friday after work. Mom has a room so we won't be crowded in Ashyn's appt. Plus she says we snore to much! Imagine that. This is the first year I have attended. Grandpa goes on Dad's weekend and really enjoys himself. There will be a silent auction too. We all three love those.
