What a week-end...

Yes that's me with Tim Holtz. Went to Kansas on Fri. and had a class with Tim on Sat. It was a great class. It was a Patchwork class. He is holding the work in the picture below. Mine isn't finished yet because my do dad's got in one of the other girls bags. So I will have to find something else to work on. I think I have a quilt to finish. We had a great time. Did some shopping and eating out some great places.

The second post for today....

This quilt is Amy Butler fabric and the pattern is called Just Can't Cut It. Great and easy pattern for big design fabric.

Took a workshop yesterday with the River Heritage Quilt Guild of Cape. It is called Cane Weaving Wall Hanging. Size is 26" x 32". Had fun and a great lunch. This is a great guild. Lots of hard working people in this guild.

Last night was our Guild meeting in Cape and this is our Opportunity Quilt. I made 3 of the bloks. It is 84" X 96". Wonderful quilt. We will draw at the November Meeting. Let me know if you want a chance to win this wonderful quilt.

Long time no blog....

I have been busy. This was Chris graduation in Milwaukee from MSOE on May 28, 2011. Came home for two weeks and will go to work in Milwaukee. The first picture is Chris ready to go up and second picture is Chris crossing the stage.

On May 27, we had to put Sugar out. She was getting bad. We don't know for sure what it was, heart or lungs. It was so hard for me to let her go. She has loved me for 7 years. She would of been 12 years old on July 5. I was very lucky to have her as my dog.

Then on June 4th Greg bring 4 Turkey eggs that the tracktor ran over and no Mom to be found. We went to Caleb's graduation party in St. Louis and got home late that night. I weent to get the bag of eggs out of the car and they had hatched. There were 4 wild turkeys running around the car. We lost one but we put the three in a box and started to feed them.

This is the same 3 on June 15. They are growing. There wings are getting real big. We are going to take them to a man who can raise wild animals. He has raised eagles,deers and etc. I just want them to go back into the wild.
