Lawn Issues with Rain

Sometimes mowing doesn't go as planned. i got stuck
Then his engine died and I had to pull him to the truck to jump start it. Notice Pilsner has given up on us he is taking a break
Signs that it was too wet to mow- the trenches in the yard

Graduation T Shirt Quilt

Graduation Quilts keep me pretty busy in the spring time. I love seeing the unique shirts of every order
Sometimes it works great to combine shirts when they don't have much writing on them.


Memory Quilts

These quilts were for a wife and then the son who passed away's mother
We had little labels made for the quilt and she wanted them on the front bottom corner
The wife had dragon fly type themes for the bedroom so this fabric was perfect

Girls High School Choir

The High School Girls choir competed and did very well, they brought home a trophy. This would mean more a few weeks later when they found out that their teacher would take a position at another school. She would be missed.

Graduation Quilt for a Friends Son

Baby clothing and Variable sizes make for a unique quilt idea
Love the Navy blue fabric and gold binding on this quilt. He will be in the Navy after high school. It was an honor to make this graduation quilt for him.

Donation gift for Principal

The Principal of the High School was given another position, so I made a very quick quilt as a gift for a pep rally in two days time. It was a lot of work, but turned out beautifully
I hope it will be a treasure of memories for him
I am thankful to all the organizations that donated the shirts for the quilt.

Lace Quilt

Sometimes I get items that I have never encountered before. 
This quilt had thin knit fabric underneath the lace tops, it was a lot of work to try and put together
The customer really loved it

Depot Day

Depot Day, we love volunteering in town. It was a little slow after set up and I looked out and saw this
These two are so amazing at times, they truly have a love hate relationship. I enjoy these moments the most.
I think they just love having fun together

Graduation Quilt

Graduation quilts tend to have so many shirts, esp if you have collected for a while
This one had so many it was hard to fit them all in
I kept just enough of them to make it all work
Unlike a school graduation quilt, this was more of a dance studio quilt
It was queen size and weighed a ton
The dance student and studio both loved it
