RABBIT EARS or DOG EARS!!!! MAYBE CONFETTI!!!

Today I spent about two hours in the garden cutting off those things,
 I made lots of confetti, wish someone was getting married so we could use it!!!
OK, girls, you all know that you have to cut these things off!!!
before cutting!!!


after cutting


Sewing in the garden, putting a quick row of sewing to stabilize the saw tooth border before quilting.  Tomorrow a little ironing to get those seams ready, and on to the frame for quilting. 
 I will do an all over feather, she (the owner) would like it simple.
She (the quilt, can't call it "it") is almost ready to go home to the Island of the Reunion.

Plans, so hard to plan!!


                                                                      HOUSTON!!!!

 Yes!!!!, Houston, can you believe it, things are slowly getting together, I have signed up for  classes with Sue Patten, and Dusty Farrell. I will be helping at the APQS booth, and then off to DesMoins, well, more Carroll for class to learn everything about maintenance for our APQS super longarm quilting machines.  After Carroll up to Duluth, yes!! Duluth!!! for a class or two with Karen McTavish!!!
Happy, scared, dreaming, and so much more, but wow, Houston, here I come!!!! 

GO FOR IT!!!

Hot!!!! Top down!!!

Today was a part quilting day, did a little quilting, then it was a top down, out on the town girls afternoon out day!!!!!  Went and had lunch with Muriel at Mc Do, then we went cruising down to
Le Grau de Roi, which is about twenty miles from here to go window shopping and more..... It was
a little more because I cracked for a dress, and a top and slacks, then Muriel cracked for a top and slacks, looks very patchworkie!!!!! Plus with a top down you need a hat, a  beautiful purplish hat with a  bow, and it stays on while the top is down!!!  Just a great day!!!
