It's A Wonderful Day!

I have been working on several projects at once. I am one of those people who can't just work on one project and get it done, then move on to the next one. I have to keep myself busy with several things at same time. Does that mean I am A.D.D.? I just know that it works for me!
Today is my sister's birthday.. I am so glad she is still here with us.. we had a real scare a couple of months ago her blood pressure went to 50/30 and she went septic. She spent over a week in intensive care and in rehab. After losing Mom this year I am not ready to lose my sister too. So we have a lot to be Thankful for this year!
I am going out to Dad's house today to cook Thanksgiving dinner. I will spend the night and have fun cooking with Dad. My dad was always the cook in our family.
Here is one of the projects I am working on:

This is going to need a name... help me please! You know when you leave a comment and I pick your name for the pattern you receive the first published pattern..and possible another surprise! This is just in the works so plenty of time for naming. I haven't decided what to do about borders..I love to hear your ideas.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Hug those you love!
Life is good here!

Last Day to Comment for Giveaway!

Hi Friends!
Today is the last day to comment on the blog for the giveaway of the wonderful Minick & Simpson book!
I had a great weekend but forgot to take pictures of all my peeps... I had my girlfriend take this picture of a new design I completed..she took the picture while they were riding in a car so it is blurry...NO it isn't your eyesight!
We also worked on some Christmas Cards
I came home to a huge order for patterns so I have to get busy here at Geoff's Mom!
Hope you have a wonderful day!
I am loving this Fall about you?

Happy Veterans Day!

 Today I honor my Mom and all of our Veterans! Mom was so proud of her service in the Navy.

I miss my Mom but know she would be proud of me. She was happy for my love quilting. Mom did wonderful embroidery work. I have quilts with her stitching on them and they always make me smile.
Have a great day friends!
Hug the Veterans in your life and thank them for their service!

I wonder sometimes.

This cartoon certainly describes me... lol
I took this picture and sent it to a friend..she said "I think something is missing"..
I laughed and said "yes, I am adding lots more flowers, berries and stars to the border"..maybe I got in too big of a hurry to take the picture. This is a fun project and I have enjoyed working on it while watching my tv shows. The Utah Utes lost yesterday which made me sad but it is fun to watch football while stitching (I probably miss a lot of plays but it doesn't matter I enjoy the excitement of the game)
I am working on a BOM project I will try and share a few blocks soon. Keep your comments coming the drawing will be soon!
This week I am going to St. George with some friends to have a Card and Quilt making retreat. We are so excited! I will take pictures.
Hope you enjoy the day!

Sew Happy to be home...
Market was so much fun! You will see by the pictures I have posted here that it was as beautiful as ever and my mind is now on overload with new ideas.
On the drive we went through all kinds of weather from snow to rain to this wonderful double rainbow.

The Moda party was so much fun! We met lots of new people and made many more quilting friends!
Here is the new fabric line from "Olde Green Cupboard" called "Londonberry"..I absolutely love it. Marcus carries the line and I can't wait to get some in to start a new design!

Love to see my quilting friends at Market. This is Lisa Bonjean from Primitive Gatherings and Dolores and Sarah from Homestead Hearth. I love my customers they always support me.

This is the booth by "Red Crinoline ".. They are so nice. I can't wait to go on the cruise with them in June! Olde Green Cupboard is sponsoring the cruise and we will have such a fun time. Hey sign up if you want to have a can't beat these ladies they are the best!
