First of all, I'm delighted to finally be able to post this little shot of the border, binding and backing of the Fruit Houses Quilt. I have no idea if the problem is blogger or my Windows 8, but something has been shutting everything down every single time I tried to add pictures. Tonight - success! Yippee!!
Next, I HAVE to share with you this great blessing my blessing of husband gave me last week. Yes! My very own Tin Lizzie longarm machine on a 12 foot table. Oh, the fun I'll have. I quilted the Fruit Houses quilt on it and it is a dream to use. I love it! It took a LOT of rearranging of furniture to fit it in, but it's in its appointed place. Of course I don't have a dining room any more, but that is not a great loss since we seldom use it anyway.
I went for classes on Friday and Saturday this week to learn more things and that was a blessing, too. I have the seventh and final quilt for the boys' home loaded on the frame and as soon as I finish this, I will go and get started quilting it.
This collage is of photos taken in our backyard yesterday around seven in the evening. We have lots of pretty things growing out there and today we got a really good rain, so that is a blessing, too, though it was a bit boisterous for a while!
I tried so many times to get a good picture of this fat quarter, but I failed miserably. My friend Sandy brought it back for me from their Alaska/Canada trip. It portrays the Northern Lights and is just beautiful!
If you have had even a fraction of the blessings I've had the past two weeks, you're a happy person, because I sure am! God is good!
Hugs and kisses,
