Sweet Land of Liberty

This wall hanging was a "Block of the Week" from our local quilt shop, City Square Quilts.
It was so much fun to make and will make a great wall hanging next year for Memorial Day and  July 4th.

June 27, 2016

Finished!!  This quilt was from a block of the month and it was a quilt that I kept telling myself  "I will finish this quilt"  Thankfully it is finished and really turned out better than I thought it would.  Onward to my next project.

April 17 2016

I just finished reading The Guilty by David Baldacci.  This was the first book by Baldacci that I have ever read but it will not be my last.  It was a great story line, well written with an awesome ending.

February 28, 2016 Star Wars Quilt

I am blessed with six great grandsons.  With the exception of one, I made each of them a quilt when they were born.  But one of the little guys was born at a time when I was taking care of my husband and I just did not have the time, energy or creative juices to make him a quilt.  He did get several receiving blankets that I made for him when he was born. 

He is a big fan of Star Wars and when I saw Star Wars fabric I decided that I owed him a quilt.

Here is the quilt and I do hope he will enjoy cuddling with it.

January 12 2016 Tuesday

This was a "block of the month" series during 2015.  Finally finished piecing and getting a border on it.  I love the colors but not so much the design.  Now to purchase backing and get to quilting it.  Quilting always enhances the looks of a quilt.

The Crossing

Just finished reading The Crossing.  Another good read from Michael Connelly.  He is one of my favorite authors.  Looking forward to his next book.

December 29 2015 Tuesday

Christmas was wonderful.  I served lunch to my daughter, her husband and her two young adult sons.  We enjoyed being together and sharing our Christmas day. 

They are in their new house and it is truly a beautiful home and just the right size for the two of them.  Both of my daughters sons live in other states.  One of her sons is in the construction industry and he has been a blessing to all of us while here visiting.  He hung my large pictures.  At my daughters house he has hung, installed and anything else that needed to be done, he has done it.  He has been the best Christmas present we have had this year.

Each day I have gone to my house and cleaned.  It is looking better and better each day.  Thursday my youngest daughter is coming over and we will finish up and then hopefully it will sell by the first of June.  At this time of the year very little real estate is being purchased. 

Back in the spring this same daughter painted my front porch.  Yesterday I looked out the front door and what did I see, evidence that the birds are back roosting on the ledge.  I MUST find something that will stop them ASAP.  I went online this morning and researched various products to see what might stop the problem.  Guess I will call grandson this morning and see if he has a resolution.

Onward to 2016!
