Happy Birthday

I'm celebrating my birthday today. I turn 62 so can draw SS which I will get my first check next month. I'm very blessed to have a wonderful family and friends. I started quilting about 12 years ago and love it. This week is the Mid Valley Quilt Guild Quilt Show starting tomorrow Thursday thru Saturday. I have 2 art quilts and 1 wall hanging quilt. I will be a hostess/white glove quilter on Thurs and Fri from 9-12. It should be a lot of fun. More pictures and news on the Quilt Show later. We are going to Red Lobster for B-Day dinner with Paige, Lee and Mike. I will post a picture of my 2nd birthday.

Happy Spring/April

I love April because it is my birthday month and Spring has finally arrived. I finished 2 projects this past few months. I started a quilt at the retreat on the coast in Jan and finished it this week. I placed it on the quilt machine yesterday and plan to get it done by the end of April. I don't believe in having UFO's. I took a 2 day class called Zinnia with Melinda Bula at Sisters in 2011. I finished the Zinnia in August but finally did the thread play in March 2013. I wanted to get it done to show her this year at Sisters. I'm taking her 2 day class in July called Hibiscus. I was able to show her my Coneflower at Houston in 2011 but was unable to get in her class. She is a wonderful teacher. My Zinnia turned out great. I used Sulky Rayon thread which makes the Zinnia POP. Here are a few pictures of my Zinnia.
