Let Us Not Forget

Let us not forget those men and women who are currently serving in the military and those who have given their lives for our freedom.

Happy Memorial Day Everyone!

The Wedding Quilt

Finally!  It's finished and I have a picture!  Hope Bonita likes it.  It's so pretty, if it didn't have someone else's name and wedding date, I'd keep it.

Off today for a four day Memorial weekend.  LOVE these weekends.

Pretty Flowers

I decided on a whim that I need some color on our porch.  Got a few pretty flowers.  Lowe's was pretty picked over.  Dang it.  I'm thinking a trip to Home Depot might be in order.  

Mountains, Shop Hop and More

I had a fabulous time in the mountains!  My friends, Rita and Laura DeMarco from Log Cabin Patchworks, invited me up to take part in the North Georgia Shop Hop.  What a fun weekend.  There were 7 shops taking part and Laura and I hopped to each one all in one day (including their shop)!  In a little Miata convertible no less.  Sooo much fun.  Did I take any pictures?  Of course not!  I left my camera in the trunk all day.  Doh!

Anyway, it was a great time and the shops and shop owners were fabulous.  I will post a link to all the shops we visited that have websites in case you get up to that area of Georgia. 

I did get some bad news while I was visiting.  Rita and Laura have decided to close the shop.  Rita just turned 70 and wants to TRY and retire. . . again.  LOL!  And Laura doesn't want to run the shop without her.  I don't blame her.  Soooo, Log Cabin Patchworks is closing (a group staff picture).  Sniff, sniff.

Lots of Embroidery

I'm finally back and look what fun things I've been working on.  A new burp cloth.  Cute, cute.

Also, some new towels for a friend of a friend.  The beginning. . .

and somewhat the end. . .

The second glass is almost finished and then I embroidered a name on each towel.  

I'm heading to Blairsville, GA on Friday for a weekend of Quilt Shop Hopping.  Very excited!  I will take lots of pics.  My friends, Rita and Laura DeMarco (mother and daughter), own a wonderful quilt shop in Hiawassee, GA called Log Cabin Patchworks.  If you're in the area this weekend, please stop by.  I know they would love to see you.

I'm also picking up the Irish Chain quilt I made for my friend, Bonita.  Very excited to see it!

Ok, I'm off to pack.  One more day of work and I'm on vacation!  Have a great weekend and I'll talk to you when I get back.
