Later in the evening we noticed the Mom was eating alone and another large female approached the feeding station for a bite. That didn't go well---Mom chased her away---Reserved Table. Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Quilting!!

I'm finding it fun and I know things will get better the more I practice. The remainder of my 2010 donation of 25 AAQI quilts will all be machine quilted as I try my hand at more and more free motion quilting. Adjust and Grow That's my new motto.

Purple Safari is the first of the group to be finished. The patchwork was part of a fabric exchange at a recent quilting guild meeting. I belong to the Crossroad Quilters. We are a very casual group that meets once a month. We share projects, ideas and most importantly just enjoy each other company. Back to Purple Safari, I added a few additional fabrics and a raw edging with black embroidery floss to complete this little 7 x 7 3/4 inch quilt. I have discovered something with my marathon 2 days of quilt top making. I noticed that I had ideas popping in my head faster than I could sew. And, I now enjoy the fact that I can go to my sewing room, pick up a little quilt top and have fun just completing it. I'm going to remember this in the future. Have a great Monday and Happy Quilting.

My Journals---one of them is always with me. The little pink journal was the first and is about full, the tapestry was my journal I carried while I was working or traveling. The rust colored journal is my present day journal. All are stocked full of drawings and ideas as they come to me in my everyday activities. I've also added a camera to my purse---it's so easy to snap a quick photo of an idea and then I jot a line or two in my journal of my impressions.
Notice a napkin can even work in a pinch. Have a wonderful weekend and keep an open mind for new quilting ideas.

Through the years we have changed---He has less hair, I have real gray, and we both have a few more pounds. Beyond the physical changes we have a deeper affection and appreciation for each other. We truly love each other more today that we did yesterday and less than we will tomorrow. That's what marriage is all about---something we didn't know in 1966, but so glad we stayed with it to find out.
