I've been busy

This is my friends quilt. It's a center panel with some plain and a pieced border. She wanted something simple but I talked her into letting me do what I wanted. I love how it turned out.

You can click on the pictures to enlarge them for more detail.

Our granddaughter, Jessica, starts school next Wednesday. We have everything she needs. The neighbor moved out (school teacher) and gave us enough school supplies to supply 4 families, I bought her 2 new pair of shoes, and Joe took her over for orientation this morning. She may choose to join Civil Air Patrol. I hope so. It can really make a difference to her future.

I hope everyone has a great week.

What's going on?

It's been a long time since I blogged. I have a very boring life.......busy but boring.
I just finished the 6th quilt for a group of ladies. I will only post pics of one of them, the most beautiful and the one that took the longest.
Now I can get back to some of the UFO's I found (from 12+ years ago) and back to the charity quilts for CPS. I really missed being able to do those. Right now I only have 3 ready to go.

And of course one of my little helpers, Bear. This is how he lays.

My friend has to go out of town frequently for her job so I have been taking her husband down to Riverside for his radiation treatments. They have been very dear friends for years and Brian is from Scotland and I love hearing him talk. I keep them both in my prayers that all goes well.
We now have our 13 year old granddaughter living with us. It's a treat to have her here. I taught her the basics of knitting and she has taught herself much more since. She has also been teaching herself to crochet.
She is a quick learner and smart as a whip. She will start school the 22nd and her school is right across the street. Convenient.
I hope everyone has a great week.
