My 13 year-old daughter is a collector! She has several collections but I think my favorite one is her collection of clove tins. You might ask why would a teenager collect clove tins. She has a black cat named Clove. One time when her and I were out antiqueing (I think it was summer 2009) I noticed one of these. When I showed it to her she had a fit. Since then our eyes are always on the lookout for cloves. She took this picture because my parents were here for a visit this past weekend. They are retired and love to shop, especially when they have something to look for. I think my daughter might be getting some clove tins for Christmas.
Now, back to quilting. Here are 2 quilts that I quilted this week. They both belong to Linda.
The battery of the cart died while the kids were serving the golfers.
My husband and I are on the local Young Life Committee. Friday we put on our First Annual Golf Classic. We were both on the golf subcommittee and he was the chair. The past few weeks he has been consumed with preparations. Well, it was a huge success and I am so glad to have it behind us. We were fortunate that the kids had a half day of school on Friday so some of them were able to help out.
I finished up the last one of Lucille's quilts yesterday.
Look what I saw! I actually caught my daughter sitting at the table doing homework. For some odd reason she never seems to have much homework. She told me she was scared because she was enjoying doing her Algebra II work. (She says she doesn't like math.)
I can't believe I actually finished up a quilt today. I spent a good part of the day running around with my husband doing stuff for the Young Life Golf Tournament on Friday. This is Lucille's quilt. I love those fabrics.
I just got home from a very busy day of quilting. The 7-Sisters Quilt Guild sewed all day working on circle quilts. They all look so great! I did not get a picture of everyone's progress. Some of the girls had to leave at lunch time and I forgot to get a picture of what they had done. Maybe I will remember to get a picture next Friday. It is really fun to see how different some of the quilts look. I think each one is fabulous.
Each one of us cut out our circles using my Accuquilt GO.
Polly's so far. Polly arrived after lunch.
Patti arrived late and left early.
When I got home George and Blue were sound asleep.
With not working on the rental yesterday I actually got a lot done at home. I even did some quilting. I finished this Christmas Quilt made by Lucille. She really does some beautiful work. I also did one quilt with a pantagram, but I do not take pictures of the pantagrams.
This is Margaret O's quilt. Finally it seems like life is getting back to normal. I am working on customer's quilts again. But, I still have a major project underway that I need to finish asap.
My husband and I own a small house that we rent out. Right now we are between renters and I am doing a lot of work on it. This is taking longer than I thought it would. I am priming and painting every room (ceiling, walls and trim) and refinishing all of the wood floors. I have the stain on the floors and will soon be starting the urethane finish. I am done painting the living room and the 2 bedrooms and only have the bathroom and kitchen to paint. I took before pictures so I will post pictures when I am finished. Today I will not be working on the house because I am waiting for the stain to dry completely.
