Quilt Bee

My goodness! I hadn't realized how long it's been since I updated my blog! I'm sorry I haven't had the time to visit anyone else's blog either. It has been a bit on the hectic side around here and looks like at least for the next couple of weeks it will continue to be so. I thought I would share a pictures of two quilts from my last quilt bee meeting.
This one is called boxy stars.
Here are some flowers for you!! These are on my front porch. Just a reminder that Mother's Day is soon! Remember all the fabric I showed you when I last posted?
This is what I made with them. A table runner. (I know another quick project) These are my Mother's favorite colors. Instead of sending flowers this year, I thought I would send her something home made with flowers on it! :0)

New Project

I have a small project in the works. A gift for someone special! I hope to have it done soon. I can't tell you who it's for, because sometimes she checks out my blog. My fabric is all washed and freshly pressed. I just need to start cutting and sewing! :0)

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Holiday! Family and friends alike!

I've been missing from blog land too long. We have been house hunting, college touring and car shopping. Not a whole lot of time left for quilting!

We are house hunting and looking for a car for daughter #1 who will be transferring to a different school next Fall. The school only seems to guarantee housing for the first and second year students, and not for transfer students. Not sure what we're going to do yet.

The College touring has been for daughter #2. We looked at 6 schools in 3 days! For those of you that have never toured colleges, It can be quite exhausting just touring one school depending on how large it is!

The "Squirrel" was a critter we spied when we were on one of the College tours! It was really fun to see it working on trying to open the jar. It was perfect timing as we were becoming a bit stressed that day. I'm not sure that it really needs any more peanut butter. It looks pretty round in the tummy already!!
When I have had some free time I've been working on finishing Mr. Hockey Man. As you can see I have had plenty of help doing it. :0)

Mr. Hockey man has taken a long time for me to finish. I can't tell you how many times I had to change threads for this quilt!!! Hubby had better really appreciate this one! I just have to finish sewing the binding down, put a label on him and then I can call it finished!
Have a great day! :0)
