I Know You Should Not Have Favorites.....

But I think this is my favorite so far of all the quilts I've made.  Maybe because I worked so much on it when things were not going well medically for Miss Ru.  Sewing therapy, you know.  Also maybe because I was really sure I was going to keep this one for myself.  I love the fabrics and the bright colors and the "unplanned-ness" of it.  But I think the main thing that makes it my favorite is that I now know that it is going to one of my best blessings - Pastor Sulynn Burton.  She and her wonderful husband Pastor Malc have been so very kind to Mr. Muddling and me since we began attending their church.  We are so blessed to be there.
And by the way, Miss Ru is doing very well. She went to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo with a couple of friends and one of her best boyfriends (He's three.) on Wednesday afternoon/night.  They all had such a good time.
And yes, that is the puppy in front of the quilt.  Hasn't she grown!

Here she is while I was sewing on the binding.
A girl has to get her beauty rest, you know! 

My very dear friend Phyllis has recently learned to quilt.  She's been here a couple of days this week quilting two quilts she made.  I am so proud of her.  She's learned so quickly and is doing a marvelous job on all those quilts she's making.  I think she's already made one for each of her four children and for some of the grandchildren!  Yeah, she's definitely been infected with the quilting bug. It was so much fun teaching her what I know.  We've been friends for a lot of years.  Just makes my heart happy!
The weather here is well nigh perfect.  I was outside playing in the dirt this afternoon.  I do love this time of year!
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend.  'Cause you know I love you!
Hugs and kisses,


  1. How wonderful to have a quilty friend, especially one who is a good friend already.

  2. Wonderful NEWS that Miss RU is doing well. She has been on my mind.
    I love this quilt. Bright, scrappy, squares, wow.
    Puppy has grown. Did you crochet the strip blanket she is sleeping on in the third picture?

  3. My daughter would fight you for this one....

  4. I love your quilt. I love the bright colors and the modern feel to it. I can see why you want to keep it for yourself. I would too.

  5. A remarkable quilt, colours expressing just where they are and lines all connecting in to one big hug rug, looks great and each time you look at it I am sure you will see another important step in life and preparedness.

  6. I love the top quilt too...wish you could teach me how to quilt on that big machine!

  7. Elaine, your quilt is just beautiful - so bright and cheerful!! I'm sure your pastors will just love it! Whoop whoop!!

  8. It's beautiful Elaine! You're so sweet to share your quilts all the time. And how exciting to bring a close friend to quilting -- I love that. (Puppy looks too cute sprawled out on "her" afghan!)

  9. There is sunshine this time of year and isn't tomorrow spring? Love it. The pup is certainly growing and that is great news about Miss Ru. Of course we have favorites!

  10. It would be hard to pick a have made so many beautiful ones! Pups don't stay pups long, do they? So good you have a friend who enjoys quilting! The weather has been beautiful here.......we could use some rain.
