We had a busy July 4th, Rick and I went out for breakfast, then to buy fireworks for the grand kids. We watched 2 movies then went to watch the grand kids swim at my brothers. When we got home we took a nap. Watch some TV and weather, I was sure glad to get the rain. The kids still got to set off the fireworks. I finally finished my jacket I have been working on it all week, and I love it. Here are some pictures.

Today I did something new. I have always wanted to learn to tat (lace making). I went to the Chisholm Trail museum in Kingfisher OK. where a group meets the 3rd Saturday of each month from 1-4. The ladies that were there today were more than happy to teach me how to tat. I made a small butterfly pin. I had a great time and best of all it was FREE! There is a lace guild that meets at Rose State in MWC on the 2ND Sunday of the month from 1-4.

This stack n whack quilt is called Puppy Love. I started this quilt top 4 years ago when I found out that my daughter was having a girl. I am a little slow in getting it done. But she will get it for her 4 Birthday this fall. Today was our all day sewing at the church. We all had a great time. I am ready for our retreat next weekend, it's going to be so much fun.

It's been a few day since I posted anything. Just been going to T-ball games. I went shopping on Friday with a couple of friends and had a great time. I bought the backing for 2 quilts. Saturday me and my little darlings (grand kids) colored 3 dozen eggs. Saturday was such a nice day we did our egg hunt. Or I should say our 3 egg hunts. They just couldn't get enough of hunting eggs. Sunday my husband did most of the cooking for Easter dinner. My grand kids helped me plant a tree rose for my deck.

Today I found out that my grandson James who is in kindergarten is receiving the best reader award for his age group in Grady county. There will be a ceremony at the Chickasha high school this month. My grandson Gerald who is in pre-k is receiving the best student award. I am so proud for my grand kids. Tonight I am keeping my grand-daughter while the boys get a special dinner for being good students. So when she is here there is no sewing instead we play make-up and wii. Yesterday we had an all day sew at the church. We had 16 members attend. I taught the stack n whack fan quilt. One of my best friends helped me with the class. All the fans turned out beautiful.

Well it snowed Friday night and Saturday morning, thanks to Mother Nature I was able to finish 2 more UFOs. To cold and wet to do anything outside. Sunday was a nice sunny day. My husband and I did spring cleaning so no sewing today. Tuesday is a all day sew at the church some will be doing a stack n whack, and the others will be doing machine embroidery on Capri's. Thursday I am going to the Chickasha quilting guild with some friends to check it out. I am going to start a new project on that day. The pattern is Beacon Hill from Quilt magazine August/September 2007. My fabric for this quilt is browns and pinks. I have added a picture of this fabric and the fabric for my mystery quilt for the NNNQG retreat is April. I finished a Christmas stain glass table runner and the count down to Christmas.

I have been very busy since the retreat with work and my little darlings (grand kids). I have done some machine embroidery. I have also been working on a new stack n whack, and new fabric for another stack n whack. Oh did I mention that I love, love, love to make stack n whack quilts. I am waiting for the mail I ordered a new stack n whack book on Amazon. My fabric is ready to be quilted (by me) for the jacket class on the 3rd Saturday sewing day. My daughter called me on Friday and ask me to make a baby girl quilt for a shower, of course I already had baby boys quilts. So I made 3 small baby quilts on Saturday. Saturday evening my washer machine went out. So I had to spend hours at a laundromat. Here are some pictures.

This past weekend was the Renegade retreat. I worked on several projects. I made 2 Christmas stockings, table runner, scarf with pockets, wall hanging Santa, and finished my stack n whack quilt top, and the count down to Christmas. Of course we went shopping for fabric a few times. I bought the fabric for 2 new quilts, and some backing for some tops I have ready to go to the quilter. In the quilt guild I belong to I will be teaching the stack n whack fan quilt on the 5Th Tuesday. Today I received my new 10" Dell notebook, and I love it so far. Oh did I mention it's Pink. Here are some pictures of the projects. The bluebird fabric is a challenge for us to make something with this fabric as the focal fabric by our next retreat in August. The pink and green churn dash block is the quilt we will work on at the next retreat.

Well yesterday was the 4th Tuesday of the month that is when the Renegade's meet. We are a small group of quilting friends. We have a great time together. We meet in the afternoon and sew for about 4 or 5 hours and have dinner together. Earlier in the day I went to Joann's fabric and bought the backing for 2 quilts. I took 6 quilts to my quilter. Today was a work day but I did find time to go to Dillard's and buy me a new Fossil handbag. Well I think it is time to get on the Wii Fit.

Next it was off to Cole to pick up my 3 grand kids from their other grandparents, drove them home to Amber. Then if was off to Wal-mart to grocery shop for my mother and finally home for dinner with my husband. Needless to say I didn't get any quilting done today.
