On my way home Thursday (3/18) from quilt retreat I mailed off a quilt that I boxed up and finished right before retreat but just got into the mail. All the way across the pond. London. Not sure how long it will take to get there.
Baby Elisabeth May Cliver was born in January but hopefully she doesn't mind the wait for very own quilt made with love and hugs. Her Momma Hailey was Pam's roommate for year and a half in college and they have remained friends ever since. Isn't she a beauty?!
I collect Kaffe Fassett fabric it seems and I was able to make this scrappy quilt.
And with my new Baby Lock Flourish II embroidery machine I was able to make a label for the quilt that won't wash off after multiply washings. And I do hope Elisabeth uses the quilt often. That's what it's made for. Too use and enjoy.Friday night (3/19) after the retreat David and I had date night. We met our friends the Prudhommes @ BT Longhorn Saloon in Brehnan and we were joined by more friends, the Porters. Fun Fun. The Prudhommes were so thoughtful. They gave me birthday gifts and David retirement gifts. They shouldn't have but they did because their friendship is enough. Couldn't appreciate them more. Good Food and friends. I even enjoyed a glass of wine.
Monday started off calmly. Finished my blogging about my 16th quilt retreat. Can't believe I've been organizing 2 retreats a year since 2013. It's always so much fun and productive. I see a few of the girls in between retreats but we are all spread out all over Texas.... Houston, Cypress, East Bernard, Clute, Little River, Chappell Hill, Mauriceville, Clute, Cameron, Caldwell, Temple, Gause. and even Albuquerque, New Mexico. So it's great when retreat time comes around. Some us do talk on the phone and FB but in person at retreat is the best.David is winding down. He's working a couple more weeks until his replacement can move to the project he is working on. But March 31st he will be officially retired. YAHOO! No more electronic alarms! LOL I say electronic because we both know Lilley will be his alarm clock. Her tummy says feed me. Of course after she gets her tummy full and potty time she's ready to come back to bed. LOL
This is her nightly ritual when David fixes her supper. She goes round and round.
After dinner we actually sat out on the patio for a while. The wind got to be too much and even David got chilly so we went inside. Lilley was a happy girl though.. she got lovin from her furless Dad.
