Sad day

Yesterday was a sad day for me. I learned that my husband's allergies may be made worse by my cat. It looks like I have to find her another home.  I have had her for five years but been married to him for 10 so he wins out. I'm sure I'll cry when she goes. But his health is more important.

A finish!!

Last Sunday I finished the baby quilt. Sure took me long enough.

Now I have another one to make. This time for a girl. I only have until October so I should get started now.

My son got married yesterday to a lovely girl he has known since high school. I wish them both the best and pray for the kind of marriage that I now have.

Here is a photo of the happy couple. And my favorite flower girl.

So when do I work on another quilt? I have to work during the week and then little M's birthday is Saturday so family gathering then and she has to go back in for surgery to her left ankle. Maybe when I go to the sunny side of the state I will pack up my sewing machine and supplies and work on it while M sleeps at night. Fun times.

Finally binding

I am finally sitting down and finishing the baby quilt. I have two more sides of the binding to do and I can wrap it up and get it to the babys parents. Then I find out another person I work with is expecting a baby in October. So I have pulled fabrics from my stash and will begin working on it next. This family knows its a girl so I didn't have to go shopping for anything. That's always nice. The quilt is a simple rail fence quilt.TTFN
