6 months

So Andy and Rick have now been dating for 6 months. Andy loves Rick and we can totally see her point. Rick as you may or may not know is a super dude who is very creative and attentive. His past hand made creations have been very cool and thoughtful, last night's set a very high bar for future projects.
Nothing says I love you Andy like a hand made electric chair. She was floored and thrilled.
We are planning on letting it be the X-mas tree a la Nightmare before Christmas.

Mary's quilt

So I have been working on Miss Mary's birthday quilt since I finished Miss Margo's birthday quilt. I've had the embroideries done and was waiting for the right fabric to make itself known.
Sat I went to a yard sale held by one of our fabric reps. She sold her samples by the pound (a lovely idea to be sure). I purchased 16lbs, more than enough to fill the couch.
In all of this treasure was a group that answered the call of MaeMae's quilt. Here is the pieced top. I hope to have time to quilt it soon. I will be backing it in purple wedding satin (because my girl knows what she likes and she likes wedding satin!). I'm not sure what challenges the satin will present in the quilting process, but there is only one way to find out.

who knew working everyday would cut into my blogging time?
So here are some random images to entertain you.
