Celebrating 53 years.

 Yesterday was our 53rd anniversary.
Where has the time gone.
I decided college was not for me.
At Easter that year I decided to get married.
In six weeks I found a dress and made the bridesmaid
and flower girl dresses and planned a wedding.
 I must have been of of my mind.
But it must have been a good decision because
53 years later we are still a couple.
Spending out time being mellow and enjoying life.
It has been an interesting journey.
Three children, 9 grand children and 3 great grand children
with one more on the way.
Our life has been full and the grand children
will keep it full.
Its been a good life.

I have been remiss my friends.

 Spring gardening has been keeping me busy and
I have not blogged much lately.
I find that it takes me longer and uses up my
energy so I am done in by 4 pm.
 We are almost finished outside,
Just the containers to fill and I wait until after
Mothers day to see what plants I get before I
finish that job.
I did buy a flat of petunias for fillers.
 Gardening and doctor appointments.
The bane of my existence.
What was I thinking signing up for QSDS 2015.
I will need to work hard to finish up enough 
work for my August show.
At least I made the sketches and prep the batting.
Now to work today and tomorrow on quilts.
Saturday I need to make 4 pies for Sunday.
That is unless there is a cancellation at the dentist
than I will need to get a tooth pulled.
Another day in my life.

Autumn Leaves

 Just a little 8x10 quilt I worked up yesterday.
Quilting Arts has a call out for small fall quilts.
It was a fun piece to make.
I keep a small drawer of dried leaves for patterns.
So these are real leaf patterns from my yard.
I blocked out my next 7 medium size art quilts.
Made some sketches and am ready to go.
I hope to finish one this week.
With this great weather it is hard to stay in the Studio.
Today is grocery and massage day than tomorrow
is a doctor appointment than I have Thursday and
Friday free to work.
Maybe not enough time to make one but I
will get a good start,
