Moving On From The Blog Fiasco!!!!!

OK, I have stopped whimpering ……in the scheme of things this is not a biggie!!!  So moving on!

There are a couple group deadlines I am just squeaking in under the wire….. The Simply Charming004 Mini  quilt along, and Christmas Through The Year.  Happy to say my mini is done, including the quilting and binding!!!!!.  I used scraps left over from a quilt I made a number of years back, from the line, Old Fashioned Charm.  I will be linking up over at Kathy’s for this finish.  Thanks to Kathy and Darlene for this fun quilt along, and a big shout out to Darlene for cheering me on in more ways than I can say!!!!!!   Kim has a link up for projects finished this month for the Christmaschristmasthroughtheyearbutton Through The Year group.  I quickly whipped up a couple oven mitts (above photo).  It feels good to have my Christmas box with a few things tucked in there already.  Thanks Kim for continuing on with our group!

Yesterday was my meet up with my friend Lani!!!  So fun.  There’s a quilt shop halfway between us (about a 1 1/2 hour drive).  Of course there is a quilt shop involved!!!….. Quilt N’ Things in Montrose, and then lunch at our favorite Mexican food restaurant.  Talking was the best part of the whole day, and we covered so much!!!  Love you to pieces Lani.  You have always been such a good, constant friend to me.  Lamosaica291c3f5f84ced23deab17282a3d389118c00d07ni brought along some show and share, and we had ourselves a trunk show in the back of her car!!   These first two quilts she made for a charity group…mosaic019f7d4d210110525cb16babf6fdc7da237e531cso cute and two lucky little ones will be happy to have them.  Then there’s this parade of beauties…..WOWZERS!!!  I love each and every one.  We are planning a quilt getaway weekend at her cabin in the woods….I can’t wait. 

Thanks to my friends Chris and Karen for quilting my Quilts of Valor quilt, I am happy to report it is all done.    I finished the binding yesterday afternoon.  This quilt was made up fr001om swap blocks I received through a Prodigy quilt exchange 15 years ago.

Now on to fixing my blog!!!!  Happy end of the week everyone.

Singing the blog woes song with you. I have been hearing so many people having trouble and I am just waiting for it to happen to me. Hope everything is back in place for you. Your mini table mat is darling, I added it to my list the first time I saw it - cute pattern. And I love those oven mitts, I have one Darlene made and I had a really hard time putting it away when I packed the Christmas decorations away. Kudos to you on a very pretty QOV - an organization near and dear to my heart.
Happy that you were able to spend a wonderful day with your friend! Sounds like the best kind of way to spend time!

Love the soft colors of your mini... it's ready to greet spring! I think the back seat of a car is one of the best places to have a trunk show... I'm sure people passing by understood completely! Glad you had a fun day with your friend, too!

Oven mitts! Love it! They truly are wonderful and I would love to make some someday.

I love your mini quilt and oven mitts. I keep telling myself I need to make new ones since the family burned my other ones while they were in the kitchen but then I made pot holders instead. It's not the same. Perhaps I will squeeze in some time to make some oven mitts :-)
