A Bloggy Break

I've decided I'm going to take a bloggy break for a while. Life is just too busy...filled with lots of fun things to do and see and lots of family time.....and spending as much time as possible with our little dots :-)!!

I still will be visiting all of you, and counting on lots of inspiration along the way!! Happy June everyone!

A Graduation…..a BIG birthday wish and BINDINGS!!!

mosaicbed1881b61a11cd7e6a06a9a6842e2168af0fa69 A week ago tomorrow our nephew graduated from high school…a handsome graduate I have to say, and there’s his big sister ( a college graduate a couple weeks ago) helping him out. We had a wonderful family celebration before the ceremony and lots of us there to cheer for him. We are all so very proud and just know there is a wonderful future ahead for him.


Look who’s birthday it is today……our very own Miss Red Geranium. I stole this picture from her blog and it makes me laugh like crazy…in a good way of course. Not only is she having a birthday was an “O” in it, her new online store is minutes away from opening. It is so darn cute and Sharon is very excited for everyone to have a look see……BADGE

Isn’t this button too cute for words. Her webmaster…talk about being professional…is still working out the bugs. She will have a newsletter and all kinds of fabric, patterns, books, kits, notions and on and on. The site is AMAZING!!! Sharon is busy getting products loaded on, so I’m thinking shopping should be happening at any moment. So go have a look see , Daisy Cottage Quilting, and give our girl a big birthday wish.

I have been locked up in my sewing room working on031

BINDGINS!!!!!!!! Business is booming ! All seven of these quilts belong to my friend Jan, three of which will be hanging in The Sisters Quilt Show in Oregon next month. Last night at our friendship group Jan shared them with us………….we all weremosaic60c8ea465e9ad85a6c41078ce79ffeabf5158fe1 jealous--- very, very jealous. She is such a prolific quilter …amazing the amount of quilting she gets done. The green one on the right is a graduation quilt filled with wonderful picture memoriesmosaicd8287e45ec4a4b4c772887dfe81422596ed2c6b4 . She is fearless when it comes to quilting, and makes patterns that I just look at!! Wish I could size the pictures a little bigger, but I couldn’t quite figure that part out! I think if you click on them they will enlarge. In addition to doing these bindings, there have been Mothers Day quilts and wedding quilts, so no quilting happening here! Call me crazy (many have!), but I love doing bindings!!!!!

For The Charming Club this mon6a011168a24766970c013482c78103970c-320with I am going to catch up on the Jelly Roll Along blocks (2 behind) and follow along with the quilt along, a minature version of the Between Friends pattern that Darlene shared with us. Thanks Kelly and Darlene for the great quilt along idea.

Happy June 9th everyone!
