Triplets are Heavenly! Twisted Sisters~
We went to Omaha last week for "the boys" Christening. The outfits were made by my DIL's mother. Fine wale corduroy pantsuit with Satin vest and bowties made from DIL"s wedding dress.
The perfect little shoes.
It was a perfect day!
Jaxon with his godmother, now he has grown just a bit!
Three wonderful ladies in my grandson's life, Ethan just cannot take his eyes off his godmother, this is how he posed in all the pictures. Kelsey, right, is my DIL's best friend. She was a devoted friend during the pregnancy. :)))
Grandpa enjoyed putting all the babies to sleep. He was very good at his job. No scary stuff like diaper changing!! :000
In July I go to Sunriver with my Twisted Sisters. There are 12 of us, we rent a large house and set up our machines and sew, shop, stay up late. Take turns cooking, eat at home together, makes it a perfect time since we don't get to see each other during the year. The Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show is held during this week, we go see all the eye candy and motivation.
Sunriver has trails for biking and walking. So we do a bit of that too. Even though it is 15 miles from my home it is perfect vacation spot with golf courses, trails, swimming, river rafting.
We do a community quilt for charity. Last year I shared a BOM I participated in even while my sewing room was dismantled and we remodeled. Crazy me, is it only me, I should have canceled that year. Well, there were 12 blocks with pattern and fabric. How convenient! It was a 2005 Jan Patek Mystery Quilt. Pieced blocks, some applique, but alot of homespun and twills too. Not really what my Twisted Sisters had worked with before. As the blocks came in there were a few comments like, " here's my block, never worked with this type of fabric before, a bit of a challenge". I put them up on a wall as they came in and just loved them. I sewed the quilt together and I am so happy they loved the quilt. They were pleasantly surprised at how much they loved the finished project. Now it is my job to quilt it and present it to the charity! Yikes, it is larger than I like to handle on my machine.
Our sewing room was the bonus room, over the triple car garage, we had 10 people set up in the room, with a pool table and furniture. One gal paints and set up in the living room. Nice big room, with a big screen to watch all those good DVD's. Grease, we had to stop for the hand jive!, Miss Potter, CSI and Bones man those are scary.
A mystery quilt with Lori from The Stitchin Post, I purchased the background fabric last year during quilt show week. I love this pine cones and this batick was all pine cones. This quilt just needs a border to finish it I think, any ideas..... ?
We made this quilt for Sally, it was a surprise. Our dear friend was diagnosed with breast cancer and late spring had her surgery. She loved her quilt. Her sister, Marian, who cannot keep a secret from her sister didn't get to make a block. Marcia got the biggest laugh out of that and she was so touched by her gift. It was a very special moment.
Here are the girls from Corvallis, we loved this house and the large space for us to be together.
I just love being together with friends and family, sharing in each others lives. Helping to carry the burdens that come our way. I am so blessed.
I was checking on Anne at Bunnyhill Designs and she has pre-market sneek peeks. So Cute!!!
