Enchanting Rose Tea Cup Exchange

Finally, I’m sitting down and making time to post about Stephanie’s lastest Tea Cup Exchange! She blogs over at The Enchanting Rose and it is always a treat to visit her! 

This year Stephanie paired me with a friend!! It was such a blessing to receive such a wonderful box of goodies from Kris who recently moved from Utah to Oregon and blogs over at Lavender Quilts

Here’s my goodies and I can now say that I have a new favorite tea!! It’s almost gone and can’t wait to order some more!

Little did Kris know,  it I Love blue dishes! And this one fits right in with my collection!

I sent goodies to a new friend, Kitty who is such a dear! She posts every Monday with a recipe and I can hardly wait to read her weekly post! (Though it has been difficult for me as we have been very busy and I really haven’t read many blogs!) LOL!!

Visit Kitty  here and view all her goodies!

Best go for now! Hope this finds each of you doing well!

Blessings and hugs!!

"Palmateer Point"aka "Saddle Point"

Good morning! We are truly having autumn this morning! Actually wore jeans, sweater and vest to do chores! Woohoo! Love the cooler weather!!

I did finish up Lori's SAL this morning except for sewing down the binding.  This was a fun one to do and I really like the results!!

Mostly crosshatching and FMQ outlining,  but I did add some feathers in the muslin. 

I named mine "Saddle Point" for the promontory of the Brady Mountains that we view to our west.

Hope this finds all well for each of you!!

Blessings and Hugs!

A Full Fledged Finish!

Gracen knew her quilt was coming, and I finished it up just in time for her fifth birthday! But I added some more little goodies, too!

Her mama pieced the top and I quilted it with an all-over design of vining whimsical flowers and leaves. I think the fabrics are so pretty and fun, and though it was a big quilt (90"x100"), I never tired of stitching!

The backing was such a perfect compliment! Mama did a good job!


I added coordinating pillow cases.

...and a doll quilt and pillow for new Sophia doll!

The Last Wedding Photos

Our  four children - grown of course!

Our family minus the baby - he was taking a nap during the photo session and everyone knows that you don't wake the baby!

A Few More Wedding Photos

A few notes: 

The topper on the cake was on my mom and dad's wedding cake, our wedding cake, and both older daughters' wedding cakes.

The grands were so good during the whole affair! Precious little ladies and gentlemen!

Our son was my escort to the ceremony! Isn't he a handsome fellow!!

A Few Wedding Photos

I hadn't planned a post so quickly,  but Janet O. requested to see some wedding photos. I only have a few on my iPad, so this is just a sample,  but when I get some more, I'll post again!

Flimsy Frenzy!

It has been quite some time since I blogged, not sure why except we had a wedding, we ranch (so my work hours are sunup to sundown), I'm working four Border Collie now, I keep two darling granddaughters twice a week, I play Hay Day and Words With Friends on my iPad, I post on Instagram to stay connected with my kids, I forget to take photos of daily events or for that matter for special events, I've struggled a bit with the blogger app, and I just didn't feel like I had much to share! But want to get reconnected with my blogging friends! So here goes!!!

The past couple months I've been on a mission to assemble the many many blocks I have pieced or have purchased into flimsys. This is one I finished a few weeks ago. I bought the eight blocks on eBay several years ago, but just couldn't decide how to set them. I pulled them out and played around with fabrics and layouts and finally laid them next to each other? LOVE how when set together a secondary pattern emerges. This is also a new size for me - cot size - 45" x 80". Pleased to add this one to my flimsy pile (which I will share at a later date!)

Hope this finds each of you well and happy!

Blessings from Texas!

Tea Cup Exchange

It is that time again for Stephanie's springtime teacup and mug exchange! It was another super fun time, not only receiving a "surprise" package from a new friend,  but also assembling one for another new friend! Bigs hugs to Stephanie for all her great admistrative talents being used for such an uplifting event!

I sent a gift to a fellow quilter and all around sweet, sweet gal in Connecticut. It was a delight to put together things for Mary because she likes fabric!! Pop in to see not only what I sent (Yep, forgot to take photos before I mailed the package!!) and her other beautiful creations!

I received a fabulous package from a sweet lady in Idaho! What a delight to get to know her! She lovingly created many sweet items for my gift and I will treasure her gifts and thoughtfulness! Marilyn and I even have a Texas connection so we were so excited to "meet" each other! Thanks Marilyn for everything!

Here are the goodies!
