The Finish Line

What a great time! My Wild Women Friends and I finished up at Thimble Town today. Barbara did a great job driving. I only had to shut my eyes and hold on twice. I got some great stuff! It was fun just putting it all out on the bed to take the picture. I'm glad we finish today. So tomorrow I can work on some of this great stuff I got.

Shop Hop starts Tomorrow!

Tomorrow starts the Central Valley Shop Hop. Can't wait. I didn't go last year, so I'm a newbee. There are 4 of us going together. We should have lots of fun and laughs. Just as long as we get potty breaks at each stop we should be fine. We will be Power Shopping! So we have to keep Elaine focused.

Retirement Quilt Done!

The T-shirt Quilt is finally finished. I finished the binding yesterday and added the label last night. It turned out pretty cute. It's for a friend I work with at the Tulare City School District. She is retiring after 31 years of service. (I remember when she started!) The School District has 14 schools and I needed 16 blocks. One of the shirts had a nice saying about Educators and I had Kathy Morrison make a large label for the last one. It says "Presented to SueAnn Hillman in appreciation of 31 years of service to the students of the Tulare City School District" Linda Matthews quilted. I wasn't about to take that on. I couldn't have possibly finished it by June 2.

But anyway, Linda did a wonderful job on it. I'm sure SueAnn will love it.

My Doggies

Here is a couple of cute pictures of my Doggies. Cocoa is the top picture and Katie is the bottom picture. Katie must have found a bug.

More Purses

Here is a couple more purses that I finished yesterday. These are the Bow Tie Pattern. I would really like to add a zipper. If anyone can tell me how, I would appreciate it.

Visalia Dames

Yesterday the Visalia and Tulare Material Girls "Visalia Dames" got together at Diane's house to sew. I made this cute purse. I used some beautiful Hand Dyes that I bought at BOTV from Kristin Eilers. And some Batiks that I had in my stash. It turned out bigger than the pattern said. But I like it. I can get more stuff in it!

I've been Lazy about Blogging

I'm back! It just seems hard to find the time to blog. I'm sorry. I need to make the time to just do it!

This is a really cute picture of my Mother and my 2 little dogs. Katie is the new one on the left. And Cocoa is the little one with the beard on the right. And Mom is in the middle. All 3 of them are really cute.

We rescued Coca about 2 years ago from Love of Animals. And we rescued Katie a little over a month ago from The Valley Oak SPCA. Cocoa is not to happy about it.
