As part of my theme for this year,
I learned how to quilt, 
by making one!

 My friend Anita, is a professional Quilter.
She showed me dozens, of her handmade,
 beautiful quilts.
Each one was more gorgeous than the next!
(She is also a blogger, Bloomin' Workshop)

Inspiration hit me hard, when I was given some material.

I LEARNED a lot.
 Patience was on top of the list.
(that and having a good pair of scissors!!) 
And what a thrill it was
when some corners of the squares, matched.
You'd think, I 'd had won the lottery.

 I have much more to learn,
but I'm finding it's fun to learn and see results.

Now, I admire all quilters.
It's hard work!

Tom is the recipient of my first, lap, quilt.


PS; If any of my kids read this,
I would really like a nice pair of sewing scissors
for Christmas!!!

Summer Rain

 Sitting inside this morning,
listening to the thunder and rain,
watching for the next bolt of lighting.

Good old summer rain storm to 
freshen up the flowers and water 
the lawns.

Again, I'm content!

Fashion Show With Hats

I have missed this little guy!
While on vacation I didn't get my Trey Day!
But I'm back!
 Trey and his dog Cooper have a special relationship.
Cooper loves the attention and Trey has a playmate.

Snack time with hat and stick.

Trey will be turning two years old
 at the end of next month!

I am so blessed to have one-on-one time
 with him every Tuesday!
