Lots goin' on...
Just checkin' in. Didn't want ya to think anything had happened to me! I am having a wonderful visit with my old college room mate- Kelli and I have been friends for 23 years! That's quite a long time. Last year, I went out to Oregon to see her for our birthdays and this year, she came here. They're one week apart- her anniversary is on my birthday! We have such a grand time together. Our lives run in complete opposite directions, but our friendship is still wonderful.
This is the doily I made for her for her birthday- FINALLY got it done! She is redoing her bedroom and using some pink as an accent color, so that'll go nice. That outer border in cream took me twice as long to do as the whole rest of the doily. I am thinking that next week I'll be back in the quilting room- watch out! I got some new thread for my birthday and I'm achin' to use it! My Mom also got my serger up and running while she was here- thinkin' that serging the edges of a couple utility quilts might just do the trick. Mom and Dad might be coming next weekend- all my yard work is waiting on him!!! My mower, weed-whacker, chainsaw- even the bushhog- broken. Hoping he can help me out with that!
That picture of Abe- taken by my sis- is just too cute and I had to share it with you. He and Exodus are buddies. Enjoy!

hope you're enjoying the yard hiatus while it lasts! Everything is sure to be fixed in one go, and then you'll wish it were all broken again :-)

Glad to hear you and Kelli are having a fun visit...but not one bit surprized at that:) Plans for next Sunday trip to IN are still on... If I run out of green crochet thread before I get to the border, will you loan me a few rounds?

Yes that pic is way too cute! He's not a babe anymore though, is he! When did that happen?! ;-)

Love Kelli's doily! That border that you stitched reminds me of an edging that might have been on those wonderful dresses from the 1920s.

When I look at those balls of thread...I don't see this!!! You've really got your work cut out for you, sista!!! I'm a slow study. ;-)

Love you tons!

What a wonderful picture of Abe and his kitty - so precious! I've been trying to keep up with all you've been doing - you get so much done - what a blessing you are to your family! Thanks for sharing you doily pictures. I've always wanted to do those, but like you, I don't follow the pattern instructions too well, I need to see someone do it. The edging on this one looks complicated! :) God bless all you do, dear friend!

Love the pic of the kiddo with the kitty. Looks like a professional magazine shot or something sweet you'd see on a calendar.
Can't wait to see what quilty things you're working on!

I'm loving your doilies! But I'll be happy to see some new quilty goodies. Hope you are having a wonderful time with your Kelli friend. And, oh my, what a cutie your Abe is! Enjoy him while he's this age. They do grow up so fast!

Abe looks so sweet; you have the greatest family. Kitty looks like a twin to my Ginger.
