Yep, that's me yelling. I just have to clean the floor and start moving all the bins in so the can be gone through measured, folded and put into cabinets. I've got my work cut our for me. It was finished due to DH's hard work with the Grandson and my special sister-in-law Miz Vonda's help. One of these days she'll get to come for a visit and not have to work.
The quilt is one that I made for a friends baby. I neglected to take a picture when is was quilted and bound before mailing. I added a lime green paisley border and the same print for the back. I think I have enought left to make a log cabin baby quilt also. I'm really liking these colors used together. Well, I'll up date you again when I get everything moved into the quilt room. If you are in the neighborhood drop in and you can help fold and put away material. Plan to stay awhile there will be lots to do.

Painted quilt room

Here is a picture of the quilt room finally painted and ready to finish the electric work. Soon we'll be ready to head for WA to get the quilting machine.
The picture on the left is another bird we have seen in the back yard in the last few days. I think it is a Tanager. There sure seem to be a lot of different birds around here. Some I've never seen before. We do have doves which we hear in the mornings and evenings.
It has been a beautiful day here and I sure hope we get some more of them.

Last I looked it was April

I don't know where the time has gone. It has been a BIG chore trying to get the quilt room ready to paint. Finally, last week the texture was done and this week DH is painting. Once that is done we'll be ready to put down flooring. I'll take some pictures once dh is finished with the painting and post them.

Monday we go down to Salt Lake City to pick up our grandson. He is coming to spend 6 weeks with us. It will be nice to see him again.

I've also been taking some EQ6 classes from Quilt University. I can highly recommend them. They are alot of fun to do and you learn alot of things about the program. I'm awaiting the arrival of EQ7 it should be here any day since I got an invoice from them showing the charge on the credit card. I'll be back soon and have some pictures to post. These two bird pictures are birds spotted in our yard this last week. Enjoy.
