I fished pie in the Sparkling Gems Saturday Sampler quilt today and it is ready to quilt. I just need to sew the three pieces of the backing together and get it mounted on the Gammill. I hope to finish it by the first Saturday in May so it can hang on the shop.
It is big and will finish at 96 inches by 114 inches.

Back home in Marietta. We had an uneventful flight - the best kind and arrived home around 10 last night. Bill was waiting in the cell phone lot (what a great idea that is) and found us easily.
I had hoped to make some progress on my Saturday Sampler quilt but ends up cutting kits instead.
Maybe I will find time to sew tomorrow.

Christina has a birthday today. I remember the day she was born 48 years ago. In some ways it seems like yesterday.
Here is my beautiful girl with my grandson, Emilio. It was taken a few years ago but I can't find a more recent one on my iPad.
Here is the sunset from the Seal Beach pier last night.
Also thought I would share the fabrics I purchased at M & L yesterday.
I plan to use the top and bottom to make skirts, the black and white to make binding and the cute kitchen prints to make casserole carriers.
Sewing planned for today and Delta will take us home tomorrow.

I know it has been a long time since I posted here. No real excuse but live writer quit working several months ago and I was so used to using it that I guess I went on strike. There is supposed to be an open version of it available but I can't get it downloaded so I just quit.
It really isn't that hard to post on my iPad so hopefully you will hear from me more often.
I'm in Southern California for a guild speaking and workshop teaching job and my friend Lynda came with me. We have been playing with hexies.
Yesterday was the workshop and we worked all day and had a great time. We went to the Elvis Mexican Place for dinner last night.
There even was an Elvis walking around.
