Hello, welcome to my blog. I'm still not sure what I will be featuring in this blog. I know it will be about quilting, but I might throw in the latest book I'm reading on my Kindle. So come along a follow me through my world of quilting and other stuff.

Ran Out of Fabric–OH MY!!!–Early Mother’s Day

Would you believe that I am just about finished the picture quilt I have been working on and I have ran out of the red batik I was using.  Well I guess I will have to run to the fabric store or send one of my quilting friend out to see if they can find it for me.  I just need about a 1/2 yard, but to be on the safe side (and I need some red for another project) I’ll most likely get around 1-1/2 or 2 yards.

SAM_0922 I only have to put the picture of the mother at the bottom to represent the root of the family and the pome at the top.  I hope I can find the same red of I will have to rethink this (maybe a black border???).



Early Mother’s Day

Darnell & Mom

My son (I do love that boy) took me out to dinner for an early Mother’s Day. You know how all the restaurants will be packed after church. This is a great idea, and it will give me time to might have a Mother’s Day dinner at my house for my step-mom if the sisters don’t plan to take her out.


Until Tomorrow

The Slow Quilter


  1. I hope you or your friends are able to get more of the red batik - if not, you'll be able to find something else that works - I'm always impressed at how much colour help I can get when I ask in a fabric store!

    The picture of you and your son is really tiny - do you have a bigger one? I hope you had a lovely dinner with (Darnell, I think, judging by the photo name?) - my husband today told me that my Mother's Day present is a trip to Buffalo to do some fabric shopping! Our sons will probably ask me this week what I want, so I'm going to tell them I want prepaid gift cards so I can do some online shopping, lol!

  2. What a spectacular quilt. I just love that tree in the middle. Good luck finding more of the red. I know how frustrating it is to run short and have to come with a Plan B.

    So sweet of your son! Looks like (from the photos) that he really loves his Mama! :-)

    Happy (early) Mother's Day!

  3. Awww. Love the pic of you and your son! Gotta love the boys... So sweet! Hope you find the fabric you need. If we don't cross paths before the big day, Happy mother's day!
