my father is retiring as of the end of this week YEAHH DADDY!!! so he has started household projects. my husband hurt his back yesterday, so i got to do a lot of the work. lets just say men have no sense of following directions. If i handnt been the "foreman" of the project, who knows what this thing would look like. LOL
but it was a nice rewarding day. I am truly blessed when it comes to the parental department. they have always been there for me and they deserve NOTHING but the best from me and life. they have been married for almost 45 years, been through 2 daughters and still love us :)
I dont know where they find the love for us and our kids.......... but its never ending.
now i must go take a motrin and put lotion on my sunburn.....its tough gettin' dirty.
have a great week!

I have had this fabric for my oldest son for awhile. he is my music guy, my electric guitar player, my metal head. I reallllyyyy wasnt sure if he would appreciate a quilt....or even use a quilt.(warm blooded like his momma). then i found this light weight quilt above on clearance at target and decided to make pillowcases out of the guitar fabric. his room is mainly black furniture. (teenagers-what can i say)
ADDED LATER---i whipped up this big ol comfy pillow for my teenager too. hookem horns! just a big ol fleece pillow. no true shape LOL
i also have a few other projects im going to start working on today, finally! spring has been busy......hope you are all finding a little time to sew.

God has gained a true angel. Granny, who we have all come to know and love thanks to Valeries blog, has passed away. I am truly grateful that I was able to buy a quilt from her, which i will love and cherish for years to come.
To her family.....my sympathies. Thank you for sharing her life with us! God Bless you all.

thank you ROBIN for my CUTE potholders!!! i love them!!! these are from potholder pass 2. i signed up for #3 and need to do something really fun and cute! maybe wonky stars? Heidi my sewing buddy got me hooked on wonky stars last week. they look fun to make.
ive had a busy week! havent been able to do much with fabric other than daydream at work about things to make. i also have a busy weekend, so my sewing will probably have to wait until our next Friday Night Sew-in. i did pick up a cute little gift yesterday for the giveaway...but im hiding it for now :)

its hard to see, but the stitching even looks like a zipper/button area on pants. she did a GREAT job. THANK YOU KRISTIE!!!
