2 Quilts and a Flimsy

I made a quilt for my sister, Jessica! I had made her one before, but she informed me that she didn't like it, or use it and it was "in the back of her closet" and it "wasn't purple" (it was)...and although my feelings were hurt (not that she realized this or cared), I made her another that was DEFINITELY PURPLE!!! Even the light color was a very light lavender!


On the other hand, I made a quilt for my sister, Jana for her birthday this month! The material was so "her" because she loves traveling in her motor home with her group of friends! She couldn't have been more grateful and surprised!






Also was commissioned to make a quilt for a friend at work to give to her sister-in-law who was just diagnosed with breast cancer. I found the perfect fabric and it is now at the flimsy stage!



Hopefully will be quilted tomorrow!

Virginia March 2017

Got to go visit my daughter in Virginia for a week! I had a GREAT time!

This is the first picture with my daughter where SHE is in scrubs, and I am in normal clothes!

We went looking at model homes, as Melyssa and Darkel will most likely be buying a home soon! They were LOVELY...



Of course, I set up my sewing space: MElyssa was kind enough to get her sewing machine out of storage for me!

Went to Crackle Barrel for breakfast (don't have these where I live)...yum!
Shopping at the outlets 90 mins away from Melyssa's home: SCORED a Brighton purse I have had my eye on for months....and Melyssa paid half!!
Got mani and pedis:
Bought and assembled a crib:




Made cookies with their anniversary date: looked much better before baking!


Melyssa INSISTED I go to a quilt shop before I left! Found many treasures....and fabric for AUNTIES diaper bag!


Do I look happy or what?

And our last meal together was AWESOME, by the beach!



Kali Miyoko Johnson!

Grammar Jo is SO happy!
