30 yrs ago

Holy cow...My second child turns 30 yrs old today!

I was so excited to have another baby, I wasn't sure if it would be a boy or girl, 
SHE was a nice surprise....
we named her Katlin (Cat-Lynn).
2011-29 years old
She is a talented, loving and a giving woman.
I love her dearly, she is and will be a great example
to those that will know her and love her.

Duran turns Tres...

There are moments that I have limited time to be a grandma.

I know that sounds absurd..but I have only three g-kids at the moment

and they live far way and that makes me want to

do everything I can for them.


My youngest grand child will be turning TRES this week and I wanted

to make her something that would remind her of me.

I love this fabric
(sorry.. forgot who the designer is..
I bought it at the Cotton shop in Provo)

I learned how to "Shirr" (smock)
Let me take a moment and give the "Swede" a shout out-
for helping me adjust my sewing machine to shirr this fabric.

I made her this head wreath (headband)
I can't wait to see her in it.

Happy Birthday Smiley Girl!

Nine patch quilt

This one was commissioned by one of my co-workers Cindy.
She told me that she had never had a quilt made for her, so I guess those words made me realize that I was the one to make her, HER FIRST quilt.

Here is another quilt I made for co-worker, Sarah.
I have blogged previously about Sarah.
She is a woman who has great self confidence and sees the
good in everyone around her.

Sarah picked out the fabric and left the rest
to me to sew the design of her quilt.
(this has not been machine quilted yet.)

Photo Booth

We recently attended a wedding and the couple had a photo booth.
I love this idea...
Here is a sample of our silly looks.
This is a rare time when Dallas would actually go
with her parents to an event, let alone... poise with them in a picture!
