Oh what a glorious morning! Unable to attend services this AM but fortunately was able to attend LIVE and online. This message was awesome, so thankful for this marvelous option.
I'm going to do bible study and the crank up my sewing machine, well hopefully, because I need to find all my flannel FQ's and see if I have enough for to make a rag quilt. I pray I have enough to make a lap quilt for my nephew, before I head north to see Him and my beautiful, sweet great nieces. I think, if I recall correctly that I was choosing dark colors...plaids. Should be an interesting morning.
Praise God for this gorgeous, even if it is very cold, the sun is shining for bright. Wishing everyone a beautiful day. Love to you all!
As Maddie says each night in her prayers...." God please help those who are sick and don't let those who are not sick..get sick." And " thank you for my wonderful life".
all please stay warm and safe and happy quilting!
Doing my version of groundhog day.
Quilting My Rainbow
I'm just taking it easy today, it's my birthday. DD is working a double shift today so we will be having a small get together tomorrow night. She's making one of my favorites, ribs and cole slaw. DGD has sung the birthday song to me. Waiting for the big game tonight, GO RAVENS.
Bonita:I'm just taking it easy today, it's my birthday.
You certainly deserve a day off, Bonita, especially on your birthday. Have a happy one and a wonderful year.

Happy Birthday Bonita hope you have a great day.
I managed to get the Twister quilt together but it is not wide enough, plenty long enough though. May try and do a small twister border with the left over fabric.
We bought a shelf yesterday for my craft room but when we got it home I didn't like it, so we took it back and bought 3 small corner shelves which look much better. Just need to varnish them now and then maybe DH will put them up for me. Just wanted somewhere to pop quilting bits when I am trying to cut my fabric.
Why do the weekends fly by? Back to work tomorrow but it also means I have rehearsal tomorrow night I sing in a large choir ( 300) and we have our next concert April 21st so lots of words to learn including Swahili as we are doing a Lion King Medley!!
Hope you all have a great week,
Happy Birthday Bonita.
Have the very best birthday ever, Bonita.
Happy Birthday Bonita !
I have to say I slept in this morning...somthing about stepping away from the sewing machine at 5 am makes you sleep past normal hours. I woke up to a big ball of fluff nuzzling me. My great pyrenees wanted in be in bed with mom so we snuggled and slept in. I was shocked she found space with the 5 labs already in place. DH came in and asked if I was ok with all them around he asked if I needed anything....when I have them all and they won't go out or mess with him I am hurting or going to have a super bad day. After I got up I said my pain meds worked I took 5 labs and 1great pyronese *giggles*
I grabbed a cup of hot tea to look out and we got snow last night. So out to do chores. Nothing major going on with all the critters. DH had brought the eggs to the house and was walking back out and he slid down the drive...I didn't laugh nope I not wanna be next slider. He didn't fall but he wouldn't walk that way again.
We went down to stoke up the fireplace....this will make for a great evening of sewing and getting more things in order. Since my sewing room is the basement I have the fireplace,. It makes for warm sewing when its cold out. Mandy has demanded her pillow be put back under my sewing table. Then of course there is one under the cutting table for usually Katie. Then Cleo, Einstien and Cleo take over the sectional couch. So after we read a few more posts and check emails we will all be heading to sew and see what we UFOs can get done.
I hope everyone has a great day!!! Happy Quilting!!!!!
I'm a material girl....Want to see my fabric collection?
Maddie is such a wonderful young lady, you must be so proud of her Nan.
Today I have been trying to work on a denim circle quilt for a friend. I just finished cutting all the squares for my centers, which are based on the answers to the Suduko puzzle on the date of her wedding anniversary. I am also hoping to work on my Quilts For Kids.
Got a fabulous bargin at Michael's,on an Ott light. You know they are rather pricey. I had been watching on that clamps to your table in the clearance section $49.99 for about 6 months hoping it would go down some more. Well went there on Saturday, the whole clearance section was gone. Saw a Ott light floor lamp with no price, so took it for price check (was going to use my 40%) and just get it. Well, I thought the cashier said $89.99, she said no miss, that is $8.99, I asked her to check again. I thought I had an out of body experience, can you imagine getting a $200.00 Ott floor lamp for $9.00.
If you need one I would check with your local Michael's and see if they are having the same sale.
Happy Birthday Bonita!
Renee What a deal I wish I could find one of those at that price.
Worked on Nephews quilt, its coming along but I'm going to have to make another trip to fabric store in my concentrated search for orange fabric, thread completely slipped the brain, and I discovered I have only half a spool! I don't know when the Weather will let up though as its snowing again.
