It's that time of year for the Sunshine Quilting Retreat that is in Temecula, CA.  My daughter treats me to this event that I love a bunch.  There are 23 other quilters to join us starting Thursday.  But first...

We are headed to Pechanga for a few tugs on the slot machines and some...


Wish me luck!

I'll be sharing my projects with you next week.  Do come back and check out what I have accomplished.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!



Made this Coconut Custard pie for my daughter Sandra.  Well she was here until the day before I got around to making it!  Sandra - it sure was fabulous!

These turns out to be the favorite of everyone.  Kisses!  Made from the leftover pie dough, butter, cinnamon, and sugar.  The cinnamon baking draws everyone to the kitchen!

How do you like my Patriotic Wall?  My daughters made this possible.  Karen made the wreath, she's the crafty one.  Sandra added the stars to complete the look.  What you don't see is the quilt just below that Sandra recently made, she's the quilter.

As you know I do know a bit about quilting myself.  These next two quilts I made will have new owners.  The Scottie dog quilt goes to my niece-in-law, Michelle.  She is very involved with dog rescue in Missouri.  The red and white quilt is for another niece-in-law, Carol.  Carol's birthday is later this month.  I'm certain they will be both surprised and excited to open up the unexpected boxes coming their way in the next few days.

I hope all is going well with you...believe it or not I'm watching snow flakes today.  Take care!

Christmas is Coming!


Life is awesome when family is around.  This year is a special time for me.  They don't happen very often that my children and grandchildren are here to celebrate.  The festive time started Tuesday when Sandra along with Mike, Barbara and their dog Autumn arrived.  Friday brings Karen with Scott, Tiffany and Matt, and Austin here Saturday.  Life is good!

Christmas will be celebrated on Saturday with gifts and games and all kinds of good food.  I hope that this time of year is special for you too!

These Sun Bonnet Sue blocks were made many, many years ago.  They were always destined for my granddaughter Tiffany.  I brought them and left them in San Diego with Sandra to assemble for Tiffany.  The blue is fabric left from one of the other UFOs left to finish...that actually did finish this visit.  Two of the blocks like two blocks before will be made into pillows.  There are ten "Sue's" to finish with black blanket stitches.
Happy 4th of July everyone!

Well it has been a long time stacked in a plastic bag to be completed.  Went to visit my daughter in San Diego and decided to take a few of my UFOs.  Sandi is so good and does such fast work, thought I would give her another challenge.  I had cut all the  pieces, then made quite a few blocks, then for some unknown reason I gave it up to the storage drawer.  Biggest problem was I didn't add the pattern to the bag.  Well it was no problem to Sandi, she manage to figure it all out and "Bang" she completed it.
Yes it is lovely and I will be proud to use it on my bed.
