A quilt for a friend's Mom...

This quilt is going to our friend, John's Mom.  John gives us our free concert tickets.  We made him a "Seahawks Superbowl" quilt last year.  So this year, we are making his 84 year old Mother a quilt.  I decided on some vintage prints and 30's fabrics.  I'm loving it so far!

Aren't quilty friends just the best?

 My grade school friend, Nanci, sent me this fabulous small cutting mat and holder.  Has room for my rotary cutters and other things...  It is so handy to use when you are sewing and need to trim an edge.  I use it so much!

A bit of hand sewing...

Get to do some hand sewing on the binding of another finished quilt :)

A visit from my Auntie!

 My Auntie Justine and Uncle Al :)  They are rock professionals!
They make these spheres out of huge rocks.  They are so gorgeous!

 This one here - is MINE!  I love the veins in it and the crystals you get to see inside the sphere.  This one is called a Geod.  It came from Arizona.
 The girls loved them too!  The one to Mel's left is actually made from petrifide wood.  Amazing - Uncle Al is going to make me one using petrifide wood found from their property in Arizona.  Can't wait!
This might be a thunder egg - will have to get the clarification from Auntie...
 This is made from laboradite - absolutely breathtaking!  The colors just dance in it. 
 Love love love this one.  The colors are so gorgeous.
Kaylee with the laboradite one - she was just facinated by them too!

My Girls!

Got to spend the whole day shopping and hanging out with my two of my favorite girls!  Had so much fun!  I don't get to spend enough time with these two - but when I do - we have so much fun - lots of laughing!

My Friends adventure...

 Nanci and Robin inside Mark Twain's cave... so cool!

The outside of Mark's cave
This is pretty cool too - Robin whitewashing Tom Sawyer's fence.
They were in Hannibal Mo.
