Happy Mother's Day!



I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful Mother's Day. It was a lovely day here shared between a visit to my mom's and being visited at home by Mike, Simone and JJ. Simone cooked a wonderful dinner for us and they all gave me pretty flowers to plant outside around the house . The Wisconsin section of our family, Kari, Craig, Abby & Ian, called to send their wishes and sent lovely flowers from Hallmark. I could get used to the extra attention.

Our quilt show is now history. I haven't heard how well we did in attendance figures, but the next guild meeting is Wednesday. I'm sure the details will be shared with everyone then.

I played with the string blocks I have made so far. Jasper and Annie immediately showed their approval of the star design. I may have to use that as my starting point.

It sounds like your Mother's Day was perfect! I agree with the two cats--the star setting for your string blocks is a keeper!

Nice flowers! I love the quilt and the quilt inspectors! Can't wait to see the finish :D.

You are partially responsible for my overactive sewing weekend! I saw your lovely string blocks, as well as several string quilts at www.quiltville.com, and I was off to the races! 88 blocks later ... most of them are sewed together, except I need more background white. You contributed to my SEWING FRENZY! LOL - thank you - I had a great time.

On the cat subject, if the scientists can figure out every detail in the life of ants, why don't they know what goes on in the mind of a cat, when a cat just cannot let a quilt-on-the-floor alone?

The cats are on to something! I agree with them. thanks for showing your sting blocks, I have a box of stings, but haven't gotten to actually sewing yet, too many others works in progress.

Your string blocks are lovely - and so are your cats :-)

yes, kitties must always help with the quilt layout - it's a biological imperative.
