SINCE MY LAST POST!
I really don't know what to say folks.........
I can't believe how time flies!
Please allow me to share with you some of the things that have transpired at the Quilt Cave since my last check in with you all!
FLYING! FLYING! FLYING!
WORK! WORK! WORK!
And these things...............
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this shot of me and the family.......
where were we?????
At the wedding of my beautiful cousin, Meredith!
Congrats to her and her groom Steven!
Their wedding and reception were gorgeous!
(As you can see, I am sporting a "Summer Haircut" as it is referred to by my
blogging friend P of The Way I Sew It.
The "Scrap Club" at O'Sewpersonal
is in full swing as we had our first meeting discussing the history
and making of a log cabin block.
Almost 50 quilters have joined in this time around, and I LOVE
hosting this very talented group of quilters!
Stay tuned for inspiration from the various works these quilters
I was invited to speak at the Pike-Lin Quilt Guild in Clarksville, Missouri.
I was able to award these 2 veterans their very own Quilt of Valor
thanks to you all who contributed blocks for the block drive.
I NEVER tire of doing this on behalf of you all that sent in blocks!
On another note, my calendar is filling up with speaking engagements this year.
If you or your guild would be interested in having me present some Quilts of Valor,
along with my scrappy trunk show and lecture, please let me know ASAP!
And, YES! I DO travel! LOL
Just contact me via my email in the upper right corner of the blog.
I am in the middle of a particular project that I can't show right now,
but, was in need of some recycled shirts and plaids which are red in color.
I made a plea via Facebook, and look what happened.....
From left to right,
My friends Linda, Cherie of Quilted Jonquil, and Alycia of Alycia Quilts,
all bombarded their stashes and sent me these delicious
Quilters are simply the best people!
Thanks to these ladies, I can now finish my project.......and hopefully share it with you all soon!
You all KNOW I spent Father's Day with.....
I can't brag on my parents enough.
I thank God every day for the parents He gave me.
Me and my sister (at the piano) were able to sing a song in church while my
dad played along with his bass guitar (front left) on Father's Day.
My dad had me and my sister singing from a very young age.
My earliest memories are of my sister playing the piano (yes she started young and was taught by our paternal Grandmother), my dad playing the guitar, and everyone singing along. My sister, cousin, and I even traveled around singing gospel music at various churches. And, although we don't get together as much as we would like to, it is always nice to be able to sing in harmony with my sister and dad.
There's a little known fact for you all! LOL
My blogging friend Julie of Quilt Diva Julie
has had astounding success with her new book, Build-a-Barn.
I am eagerly awaiting a signed copy from her and can't wait to
play with her technique......however, in the meantime......
I have built my OWN barn......well, umm, I suppose it is the
Chicken's barn....but, you know what I mean!
A fresh coat of paint has done wonders for this little shed, ummmmm, BARN!
You can see the before photos IN THIS POST.
which quilt block shall I place on the side of it??????
Any suggestions from you all out there????
And, Lil Bubs would LOVE to introduce you to some of the occupants of
this new barn.......
My favorite hen, Sweetie Pie, loves to ride on your shoulder.
Sweetie Pie is a Light Brahma chicken.
And here is Lex, an Old English Blue Bantam rooster.
I LOVE his grey/blue coloring!
Next up, is Ricardo the Rooster.
This guy's name really suits him perfectly.
He is a White Faced, Black Spanish bantam rooster.
He is extremely rico, suave!
And last, but, not least is Little Bit.
He is a Red Crested Polish bantam rooster.
When his plumage comes in full force, he will be quite the spectacle!
I will share with you the other residents of the chicken barn as time goes by.
They certainly are pampered birds with their very own babysitter!
Little Sophia Annabella LOVEs watching her chickens!
Remember, give me some ideas for which quilt block to place on the side of my newly
renovated/ recycled barn!
Post a reply to this blog post.
Thanks for all of your encouragement!
Thanks for all of your input!
Thanks for flying...........ummmm....I am not even going there! LOL
Keep on Quilting!!!!!!
