There was a time was a lot of fun in a fabric shop, now it's the garden shop. While she no longer wants plants, she loves the garden area, tools, etc.

Got some fabric cut out for a receiving blanket, and it's rather small. Hoping it lasts the baby more than a week, especially if it's a big baby. Was going to make two, but perhaps I'll make just one. I already have that quilt I made earlier for her as well.

Ironed the fabric for the AG quillow, I'll be making. I'll cut everything out tomorrow and start stitching.

Looks like Tux will be at the Vets for a few more days. He gets laser treatments and hydro-therapy, too. He's such a mellow guy that he let's them sit him in the sink and spray him with water. What normal cat does that?? Anyway, the Vet's office recently lost one of their office cats and are hoping Tux will stay and fill that spot. He may just do that.

I finally got all the bargello strips sewn down. It's a pretty large table runner. Next step is to do some applique and then trim and binding. 

Mari, have a nice weekend.

Mary Alice sorry your Mom is being such a pill. Maybe she needs a happy pill.

Ouch, Mary Alice! Mom is no fun?

It's Spring Blossoms, Mary Alice. I hope you find it, it was fun, addicting, and easy. Oh no, Mom was no fun at a fabric shop? Both of my grandsons had huge heads, so they were C-section. I haven't looked at how the quillow goes together, but I bet there are lots of blocks to make.

I have been working all day! I think I deserve three play days in a row! hehee. I just updated my Floriani designs list, so I don't buy something I already have. I need to update my AG list too, but that's not going to happen today!

Afternoon you all!  Mari, I'll be watching for your blog and the new LL block tomorrow.  

Froggie, let me know the package the AG flowers are on so I can look out for it at the workshop when I can buy 2 design CDs and get one free.   I went to Joanns today to use my gift card to get my goodies for my AG workshop.  Next time remind not to take my mom, she's as exciting to go shopping with as getting a endoscopy, or a colonoscopy.

Also got some flannel to make a quick receiving blanket for the new baby girl in our family come Monday.  Celeste is having a C-section.  My understanding is that this is one HUGE baby---we'll  see, cause the mom was pretty huge to begin with before the baby.

Tux will love his probiotics.   I just hope he heals fast, poor baby.  

I'm off to sew!  I'm so excited. I may just start stitching out the  pieces for the AG quillow as there are a few blocks to make on that project.

Good morning everyone! It's probably afternoon to many of you though. Just wanted to let you know I'm off today and tomorrow. I'll be peeking in as I have a blog to load tomorrow but just wanted you to know because you won't see me much for a few days!

Oh no, Mary Agnes, you gotta sleep better! Just like a new mom with her first baby. Yes, the quilt flowers are AG, and the butterflies are Adorable Ideas. The fun thing is, you make it whatever color you want! The flowers were a terrible color on a bad fabric, and lots of people turned them in because of that! I just look at the actual design to decide if I like it. And change colors in my head.

A stack of quilts for TJ! You crack me up, Mari!

Our vet gives the dogs pro-biotics, Barbara, it's a liquid or a powder, I think. No yogurt.

I took DGS1 to the doc this morning, he said his back is feeling better. Doc couldn't figure any reason for the pain, anyway. He said we don't have to come back. Yippee! Then I worked on some paperwork that has been lying around, just various things that need to be dealt with. Maybe later I can play in the quilting room.

Good morning friends.

I suppose Mary Agnes will be wanting to stay in FL to avoid the yucky NE weather. It's pretty nice here today. Might go plant shopping today. My deck is looking pretty empty.

Tux had his surgery. Guess he will be home soon. Not sure as he has to be on some strong antibiotics and then more meds to counteract the side effects from the antibiotics. Poor guy. She said she may be giving him pro-biotics. I can just imagine sitting here feeding my cat yogurt.

I better get in the sewing room and get my therapy in. Have a great day.

Whoa! Look at all the projects!!! Wow! They are SO beautiful!

Froggie, love your egg basket project. You are really ready for Easter. You've been pumping the Easter projects out for weeks! That embroidered quilt should be entered into a competition! Wow, its gorgeous!

Ranchmom, Malia's quilt is so sweet. She is going to love it! I was thinking that if you make a stack of small quilts high enough to be a bed for TJ, he might stay off your stuff in the Henhouse. He could be the prince and the pea! And, the potholders are awesome! How perfect for you and Ranchdad!

Comment by Mary Alice Espinoza yesterday

Afternoon all!  Wow, mom slept great last night...wish I had!  I kept thinking she'd call me for help, so I slept practically sitting up.  Checked on her 5 times and she was sleeping like a baby!  She didn't even take the muscle relaxant!  She only took the ibuprofen and she's as good as new!  She's been out in the yard having a great time with her plants.  Beats watching her mope around!

I spent all morning doing laundry for both mom and myself.  Still need the sheets and towels, but I'll wait for another day.  Tomorrow I'm  hoping to start irrigating early.  I don't want to do a thing from Good Friday to Sunday except enjoy myself sewing and watching TV.

Froggie love those mug rugs (Patrick Lose?) and your quilt (Is that an AG design?) I'd like a quilt like that, but I'm partial to purples, pinks and teals.  There must be smoke coming from Froggie's machine! I'll send the fire dept!

Ranchmom, I love Malia's quilt! It has hearts (my favorite).  Those potholders are so awesome!  They have that rustic cowboy feel!  Perfect for all those branding parties!

Sheila, I found Bio-freeze on Amazon!  3 roll on for about $25... I'm getting them and I'll be prepared! Froggie, I don't like the Ben Gay smell at all!  

Was informed this morning that my 2nd cousin Celeste will be induced on Monday, so we have a baby girl on the way to the family. 

Barbara, sorry to hear about Tux.  I hope he feels all better soon.  

I managed to finish Part 1 of the CT mystery quilt.  Yes, I know, I'm VERY behind on this one.  But that's okay, so long as it gets done.  I've got to check out the supply list on the AG workshops I want to do.  I thought of stitching some of them out, but there are only a few I can do, without the step by step instructions---unless it's on the design CD??  I'll look.
