March Madness

Last month we had a nice group for our Judy Day. We had about 13 or so and it was great because we were able to help each other with tips we had picked up in our class. It is a fun day to just get out of the house and sew with a nice group of quilters.

Janet was in for a machine quilting class this week and brought her finished Hawaiian Star. It is absolutely gorgeous!

I also took a close up of the center. The colors are scrumptious.

Our friend Juanita made this beautiful bracelet with charms she received in a swap last Oct. Isn't it great? You can see the felted wool pieces in the different charms. Next Friday we will be working with some of the felted wool at our Freaky Friday.

We have been busy working on several new patterns at Quilt Country. One is Free to Fly, a butterfly quilt, and the other is Sweet Hearts. The photo of the heart quilt is the smallest version. The hearts are raw edge applique.

Riding with Joshua

Today Joshua and i were in the car and saw a big fire truck. He was talking about it and I asked if he had ever been on a fire truck before. He said no, he wasn't a fireman. I told him you didn't have to be a fireman to go on a fire truck. He said he wasn't a fireman because he had always just been a kid. I snapped this one with my phone at the red light.

The other day Joshua and I were on the way home from school and we were singing along with Raffi, there's a bug on the floor, on the floor. I tried to snap a photo of us being scared while we were singing. Of course we were already home and just waiting for the song to be over. The photos are blurred because he is moving around to the music a lot. His favorite Raffi song is Willoby Wallaby Woo. (not sure about that spelling.)

Freaky Friday, Tony & Tina and The Caucus

It is almost time for the March Freaky Friday! It seems impossible that it has been a month! We are having a great time with this class and I think the students and customers are too. Below is a photo of Tonya's paintstick piece. She is so good about taking her project home and making it into something wonderful! She is one talented lady.

Since I last wrote we also went to see Tony and Tina's Wedding. It is a very funny musical about a couple from NY and NJ and their families and friends. It was really funny and you are a part of the wedding, not sitting in seats in the audience but part of the group. We laughed a lot and you just never knew what they were going to do. There was a "cheesy" wedding singer who had a great voice. He actually sang through the complete reception. Below is a photo of my husband, Tony, with the daughter of the caterer. She was very "goth" and never smiled once! She just came up and put her foot on the table next to Tony and waited to see his reaction. It was SO funny! The second photo is of Krissy, my daughter in law and the wedding singer. I think you get the idea. The third photo is Tony with one of the bridesmaids. She was having boyfriend trouble and came around often. All of the ladies seemed to like Tony. I think he was an easy target. Go see it if you get a chance but it is not for kids.

Well the primary/caucus is over. It has been an amazing year, one that I think will be remembered for some time. Tony and I decided to go check out the caucus at the Lewisville Town Hall. There must have been about 200 or more standing in line to vote in the caucus. I snapped a few photos with my phone. The quality isn't that great.
