I have the privilege this week of doing a binding on a customers’ family heirloom.  It is quite old but not antique.  In the second photo, you can see where the original quilter started hand quilting it.  Our store longarmer left that in place to preserve the history for this family.

The photo where you barely see the needle, well, that’s my part.

the call of the sea is beckoning me

to sit and just be

with so much sadness and uncertainty around us mixed in with hope and future plans, my toes need to be in the sand with the breeze in my ears and my face turned to the warm sun


A finish!

IMG_0863This sweet little quilt was meant for Confessions of a Fabric Addicts’ Hands 2 Help annual donation drive.

life gets in the way sometimes and I just missed the deadline.  It is hand pieced, but machine stitch and flip finish.  I also sewed across the short bars, and around the outside solid gray border.  It is backed with a light green fleece that has monkey faces all over.

Hope it brings someone comfort.

May 28.  The anniversary of the day my mother was born.  This year I find myself ALMOST able to think of this day as one to celebrate.  My heart still aches.



It’s flying here

This month has really gotten away from me!  The kids are extra busy with end of year concerts, art shows, camping trips, and all the projects the teachers can assign.  Plus there is graduation prep, shopping, announcements, two baccalaureate services, prom coming up, yearbooks.  Add to that one husband who has been out of town twice, and going again.  Regular household duties.  Plus work.  And you can see why I’m losing sleep and getting really run down!

the next 3 weeks are jam packed for us.  A dozen or so different doctor visits.  There is only one evening on my calendar that does not have an activity or two or three on it so far.  Even our Sundays are packed, we have Bible school starting, a graduation picnic to attend in WV, and the baccalaureate services on two different weekends.  And this mom LOVES it!

im so proud of my kids sticking it out to the end of the year.  They’ve both had some obstacles to overcome this year. Of course, who doesn’t?


Keep it up!
