This handsome guy below is my oldest grandson who turned 20 last week! Talk about feeling old, LOL!! He is a sophmore at Butler University in Indianapolis and is studying to be a teacher. I am so proud of him and I know his mother, who is looking down from heaven, is just as proud!

the last pattern of Bonnie Hunter's that I have done and what alot of pieces I used. Great way to get rid of alot of scraps and have the quilt look good too!
This is how it looks hanging up in my quilting studio and I still couldn't get the who thing in one pix. If it wasn't raining I would take it outside but would have to hang it over the fence. Oh well, no matter how I look at it I still love it!
Hope everyone is having a quilty day!!

It has been forever since I have been in blogland. Alot of changes in my life have been happening and things have calmed down and are back to normal, whatever that may be. I have been doing alot of piecing but little quilting and so I thought I would start quilting again with this wonderful table runner. My dear friend Angela pieced this for me in exchange of my quilting one of her quilts. She does such a wonderful job piecing and that makes this runner even more special! I have had this Thimbleberries kit in my house for I don't know how many years and am so happy that it is finished. It will be on display in my kitchen through the Thanksgiving holiday and I will love having it there to enjoy!
A little bit of what has been happening is that last November I had quit my job and spent many months at home quilting and enjoying my life. Alas the hubby wasn't too happy about it so I have been hired on at Wal-Mart an hour away. The fun part about my new job is that I work in the fabric department! I have had alot of fun there, talking to quilters and also to the college kids that come and buy fabric to make Halloween costumes and such!! I am amazed at how many of them are ambitious enough to do it! I can honestly say that it is never boring! That's about it. Now to go and check out what everyone else has been doing!!!
