Happy Belated Mother's Day.......

Happy belated Mother's Day to all of you who are....

or take the role of Mother in one way or other.

My Mother's Day was spent with my most precious Mama!

So thankful for my wonderful mother, and my
wonderful sister who is also a 
wonderful mother.

It was the first time we were able to be in church
together since the quarantine.
Nothing makes my Momma happier than
having her children and grandchildren in church with her.

Mom won "eldest" mother at church.
And, no, she doesn't care that anyone knows that.
She is beyond happy to be where she is, and
is thankful she can do what she can do
at 79 years of age.

Mom and Dad's pastors are so very nice.
Isn't the orchid beautiful?
Almost as pretty as my Momma!

We all had a nice meal together after church.
Pardon my glazed expression! LOLOLOL
I was delirious with happiness!

The happy recipients of Mother's Day goodies.

It was a big day for my niece, (aka Sugar Doll) also!
We celebrated her college graduation!
She graduated with her 
Bachelor's of Agribusiness:  Animal Science
degree and is headed to the University of Missouri,
College of Veterinarian Medicine.
Lilly Mae is volunteering to be Sugar Doll's first patient
while she is using her brand new stethoscope.
We couldn't be anymore proud of her!

Do you all recognize this girl?
Abby got her summer "do"......
She went in as Abigail the Golden Doodle and came out as
Zsa Zsa the Poodle!
Oh my!  NEVER AGAIN!
I know she is comfortable, but, if a new "do"
can change your attitude.....it certainly has this gal's!
HIGH! MAINTENANCE! LOLOLOLOL

Mother Mabelle is back to her coop doing her
normal chicken duties, like eating bugs
and laying eggs.
Here are the 4 baby chicks she hatched out.
They are thriving.
At this point, I believe 2 are hens, and 2 are roosters.....
to be continued......

Lil' Bubs who is almost as tall as me now has been
incubating his own chicken's eggs.
He has had great success......
a chip off this ole' block! LOLOLOL
I'm really proud of him too!

Well......I thought my Featherweight, Miss Bev, had bit the dust.
Enter my Super hero Dad!
I couldn't get the foot pedal to work at all....
Leave it to my Father, Mr. Fix It........
Miss Bev was up and running in literally 5 minutes!
Sheeeeeesh!  I wish I had inherited some of my dad's 
know how when it comes to fixing things!

And, if this isn't a great site!
Momma is helping me piece a quilt for my sister!
I think it is so special that Mom's hand and name
will be on this quilt!  My sister will be so excited!
You all KNOW I always participate in my friend
Lori's Doll Quilt Swap.
I got this idea from an antique quilt I found on social media.
No name to attribute it to.

Here is a close up of it.
I really enjoyed making this for my swap partner
Pat in Wisconsin.

And, this is the beautiful little quilt I received from
Linda in Virginia.
DELICIOUS!
I love the butterscotch and chocolate colors!

It has already been hung in my home....
right outside the entrance to my studio, next to 
the doll quilt I received from Cecile
last year!
Thanks Lori for hosting another great Doll Quilt Swap!

Hey Quilters!
I hope you have been enjoying this departure from the norm?
I try to answer some of the questions that have come in
about eggs.
If you have a question, don't hesitate to ask it!
Less than a week for Mother Mabelle's clutch to hatch!
Thanks for all of your encouragement and support!
Keep on Quilting!

Mother Mabelle was moved today.
Not that it makes a difference, she is such a committed sitter.
She gets off the nest at night, and gets her a drink, and a bite to eat,
and to relieve herself.
Almost 1 week till the hatch if all goes as planned!
Today I share more about eggs and an update on King Tut.
Thanks for all of the encouragement and support!
Keep on Quilting!

Mother Mabelle Check-in 6
It's been a few days since we last checked in.
Answering some questions about a hen laying eggs today.
If you have questions about eggs, this is the week to ask!
I will try to answer your questions!
Who knew a Mama Hen could stir up such interest?
I hope she is briefly taking your mind off of other things!
Thanks so much for your encouragement and support!
Keep on Quilting!
