{ Simply Stating }

I have been blessed with many friends each talented in their own way.
Some are quilter's and some are not.
But my quilting friends
they can be a rare breed all their own.
They know you, they can relate,
they've got your back when you have that unfinished project
with that last minute deadline.
They are always looking out for you.

A few months back I recieved these sweet little treasures
from one of my dear quilting friends. 
They were once a very special gift that I made for two VERY SPECIAL small people.
She recognized them on eBay for 99 cents,
purchased them and returned them to me.

Now QUILTER'S listen up
When you are so engrossed with making that special heirloom quilt for someone
and spending boo-coo bucks on nice, high quality quilt shop fabrics
it is also YOUR responsibility to educate its recipient in what it is they are recieving.
This is not your typical blanket from the local Wal-Mart or 5-N-Dime.
This is the REAL deal, the GOOD stuff.
If taken care of properly, guaranteed to last a life time or two.

Well as with anything, there are exceptions
and there are just some recipients out there
that are too stupid to know any better any way.

Just saying.

Happy Quilting,


{ Sunday's Paper }

Yesterday's paper reported that we had a wedding
and boy did we ever!

The day was perfect
the bride was stunningly gorgeous
the groom ecstatically handsome

and both sets of parents could not be more proud!

Our home is still running over with company
and we are still enjoying every moment 
we possibly can.  

More pictures to follow!

Proud momma of the Bride


{ A Blogging Break }

Okay, maybe not a "break" 
but just a little "nap" ;0)

Family and friends are beginning to arrive! 

As our homes and local hotels begin to fill with loved ones 
who have traveled so far to share this very special day with us, 
I'm going to take a little posting break.

To visit, catch up and share some quality "family" time.

To assist my darling daughter with anything
she may need.

To breath....
take deep breaths and enjoy every moment!

Moments of a lifetime only happen once
and I plan on savoring every moment ;0)



{ June Brides }

"Oh, they say when you marry in June,
You're a bride all your life.
And the bridegroom who marries in June
Gets a sweetheart for a wife."

Billie & Jared Meagan & Justin

Oh I think these two young men would have to agree!

Brothers in love
with weddings just six days apart

This weekend as Justin and Meagan begin their lives together
we want to wish them all the best 
for many happy years filled with loving memories!

Enjoy your day!


{ So Little Time }

So much to do, so little time

I think it is a cookie-kind-of day!

Laundry to do, wedding programs to print,
house guests coming, oh my....

Yes.  It IS a cookie-kind-of day!

Enjoy yours!


{ Remembering }

God Bless those who serve, 
who have served

Thank you all for your sacrifice and honor 
in serving our country to protect our great nation and our freedom 
I feel blessed to be apart of a military family!

God Bless Our Troops!
