Homespun Hannah. Even more fun, Danice lives in Florence, AL, about 75 miles from here.
I sent my doll quilt to Lizzy of Gone to the Beach. She will retrieve it from the post office today:
My other completion is this String Swap Block quilt:
The 36 larger blocks in the center came from 6 members of the Education Team who come to work the Houston show. The smaller blocks on the outside borders came from several members of my guild Quilt Show committee. I practiced free motion quilting, I'm still not very good at all at that, but it's OK and at least I know what speed works best for me, moderately fast. This will be a sample at Open Studio in Portland, OR in August then it will hang in the Education office in Houston this fall--hopefully, the other 6 people will get theirs done so we can have a good display. It helps our big office look more inviting with a quilt display. I've posted about the choices the others made here
My husband had some surgery last week and is surprised he's not feeling 100% yet. He intended to go back to work today, but that's not happening. I leave very early tomorrow morning for Spring Market in Minneapolis. So our eldest son, Joshua Black Wilkins, came down from Nashville yesterday to stay a few days. Today he got put to work cleaning the porch cleaning--a hot, dirty, wet job. Thank goodness for sons who work cheap! He is a photographer by day and a musician by night and we were just lucky we caught him at a good time, he is out of town a lot.
Yesterday was Mother's Day and besides having my eldest here I received flowers from my grand girl to be, Stella LeAnne, and her terrific parents, my younger son Andy and his wife Lauren.
My husband listened when I gushed about this beautiful dish garden at Lowe's last week and it appeared as my gift from him--so pretty! I hope you all had an enjoyable Mother's Day too.
Off to pack for Market--I hope to blog some from there to show you what's new and exciting.
