It was tough getting all my stuff into suitcases to come back home. Kitty is sitting on the Kaffe Fassett kit I bought at Under the Sea from Material Girls with birthday money mom gave me.
|Note to self: Don't bring those big-ass platform shoes next time. They take up too much room in the suitcase!|
This is a tray of fabric Mom cut up while I was there to make Andy (middle son) a bow tie quilt. Last I spoke with her, she said making bow tie blocks is boring. I hope she sticks with it; he will love it. (I plan to upload pictures of her hooked rugs on her blog when I finish this post: Linda Brannock's hooked rug designs)
Ha! I got photos of the moon flower open. Mom has been drying the open blooms and framing them. They are really pretty, but I don't think I got a photo of the framed one.
Joey is really glad I am home; he assumed the quilting cat position right away as I got busy making a baby gift for a young friend of one of Andy's. She married a fellow Collins Hill HS graduate and they are stationed in Hawaii. She announced (on Facebook) she was in labor on Friday night while I was in Kansas City, and then it was MONDAY before she posted anything else. Not being a close friend, so not on the phone tree, I was anxious to hear everything went well. Little Lucas is safely here, so his quilt is under the needle.
I put some denim I scored at the local GW store on the back to make is super durable for dragging around sandy beaches.
I think they'll like it.
And here is an unfinished item that I want to play around with.
The colors are fabulous, but it has some problems.
It's a holiday weekend; enjoy your family and get some sun!
