I also enjoy my embroidery machine!--and my mid-arm for quilting. That machine saves my hands for applique! Central to my life is Jesus Christ!

The sample squares from Teri--finished!!

Posted on August 7, 2010 at 2:58pm 17 Comments

You may recall the sample squares I won last month--I did a modified stitch and flip to make my "coins" go in squares instead of the Chinese Coin strippy that Teri had done. I also added redwork and an embroidered panel to complete my "big top" look!! Thanks KP for the great squares!!

It was a great two for one weekend!! A wonderful time with friends, eating too much, sewing a lot, and talking lots, too!! We ducked out for a 3 hour break to see the lovely Airing of the Quilts in Huntsville--a very short ride, beautiful day, and such a delightful assortment of quilts!! The guest artist this year was Karen Kay Buckley--such a talented and gracious person with a beautiful display:…


Whooping Cranes

We went down to Rockport (Tx) yesterday to see a friend--bonus--the Whooping Cranes had left the Aransas Refuge seeking crabs in the marshy beaches of Rockport!!--we saw almost a dozen of these magnificent birds along with the usual Egrets, Gray Herons--and a flamingo colored bird --something hornbill. The wildflowers covered fields with purple, pink, white and yellow, the yucca had magnificant stalks of flowers. The sky was an intense blue after the morning fog and the water was a lovely… Continue

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner.  I have been remiss in getting on my page and posting.  Anything is possible.  I could be distantly or closely related to the Nebrasca Phillips'  We don't lnow a whole lot about our Dad's side of the family and most of them that could tell us are gone.  It is a real shame no one thought to get more info beofre it was too late.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! Our is white and getting whiter by the minute here.  Hope you are enjoying a wonderful celebration of Christ's birth today. Wasn't that an awesome gift God gave us all?  We are so blessed.

Hello!  Great hearing from you.  Glad Texas is enjoying more rainfall.  We are in an extremely dry year.  We've sold the yearling steers early and need to make decisions about the yearling heifers.  Hopefully we'll be able to have enough grass for the cows.  We had 1 1/2" rain just the other night, which helps.  

Tell has less than a month left of his internship on the ranch in Montana and then he'll be a junior in college.  The west is extremely dry again.  

Shoni is happily married.  They'll be in the panhandle until he graduates in December.  They aren't sure where they'll be after that; it will depend on where her husband gets a job.  

Hope this finds you well and happily quilting away.  I need to get busy on the DWR.  It is all marked, but still needs basted.  I'm hoping for a December finish.

Hi CG, we're doing well.  Had horrific winds all week and prairie fires in several places.  We've heard how bad the drought is in Texas and feel for them.  In fact, most of our (Nebraska) hay is headed south for ranchers there.  Can't imagine the losses and hard times they are facing. 

DD is planning a very small, simple June wedding.  I've started cutting on her DWR.  The baby quilt is done and the graduation quilt top is finished.  I need to get it tied or quilted, but haven't gotten the flannel back for it yet.  We're headed up her way this weekend for a bridal shower.  It is early for that, but her college friends wanted to get together this fall, since they'll all be going their separate ways next spring. 

Great hearing from you!  Hope this finds you well.

We are trying to adopt our nephew from Pakistan....long story....but it's in the hands of the US Embassy there and they are making things so difficult!  We have been there 3 times in the last 9 months!!!  We are waiting now while they "investigate" the case further.

I'm trying to finish up the last 2 blocks on a quilt I've been bogged down with for the summer.  The construction on this one has not been fun at all, but it will be a pretty quilt top once I FINALLY get it together.  I have it all laid out to sew together once those last two blocks are done.  I haven't wanted to set it aside for fear the pieces would get mixed up, so I'm determined to finish it before starting on some other things. 

I know I'll have a baby quilt (nephew & wife's first baby), a graduation quilt (niece) and Shoni's wedding quilt.  I have about 3 I'd like to make for her.  She wants a DWR and another of her favorites is just a scrappy log cabin quilt.  The other pattern is an appliqued Heart of Roses quilt by C. Jean Horst.  I have the pattern book.  She may not get all 3 before she's wed, but I would like to get at least one done.  Deadlines help keep me on task. 

We haven't seen all the snow melt yet.  The rivers are full to overflowing regardless, so I suppose they'll be at flood stage for quite some time yet.  It doesn't affect us where we're at.  Hope you get some moisture and relief from the heat. 

Take care & many blessings to you!
