Mother's Day Early

Our daughter, Amanda is leaving Chicago for her new assignment in Japan. She will be gone for 2 years! Such is the way of the Navy!
Despite all her packing and moving, she did not forget about me!! She sent her Mother's Day gifts to me early!

I am so lucky...she loves her momma and NEVER forgets to tell me how much! She is the sweetest, and I will miss her SO!!

Testing 1-2-3

I am trying new apps...since the last update on my iPad, I have lost BLOGSY.
And the other app I used made the posts too small!


Janeene turns 60

I was finally able to give my eldest sister the quilt I made for her 60th Birthday!
We celebrated on her actual birthday by going to Koki's, her favorite teppan place!

Today, most of the family gathered at The Yardhouse!

As we left the restaurant, this lovely rainbow was waiting for us:



















Got home and saw this picture sent to me by my daughter, Melyssa! She is already using the Cherry Blossom Basket I made for her as a mobile diaper station:






Made it home to have time to sew up one more block for my "Anniversary Quilt" that I have been slowly plugging away on for years-this is a quilt I hope to put into a quilt show when I finish:
