Cloudy and Windy with a Chance of Quilting

What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods? Here, it’s somewhere between bi-polar and manic-depressive; frankly, I’ve had enough. This is Texas and it’s May, for Pete’s sake! We’re supposed to be bitching about the heat already.  I don’t like wind and cold and leaden skies; that’s stuff for our northern brethren to deal with.

There’s been very little going on in the quilting department this week. My Papa passed away Sunday and today was his funeral. I am trying my hardest not to be sad because his suffering’s at an end and, if Heaven’s as awesome as my Bible says, I’m totally jealous. I bet the weather doesn’t suck up there, either. Sorry for the snivelling.

Okay, back to the quilting…

I continue to receive packages of quilt blocks and tops from all over the country for the folks in West, TX.  Thank you to everyone that’s sent something my way.  I got word back that a little girl who received one of the quilts absolutely loved it!

My Mama found a rag quilt in her stash to go to West…ain’t it purty?  For adults, “ain’t” is a word; for The Co-Defendants, it’s a no-fly zone.  Just sayin’.

And this is what I finished binding yesterday…


Wanna know how cold it’s been here?  Get a load of this…


Told you!

  3. Love,love,love your boxer! We have a flashy fawn and he has the best personality!

    Oh AND I “ain’t” seen a prettier quilt than that one you have created in pink,green,purple and yellow;)!!

    • Thanks, Sara! We lucked out considering she was free. We actually got her for the kids, but from all appearances, she’s my dog. My quilt is purty, ain’t it?
