Look who was in town Lynn Wilder of Sew'n Wild Oaks

Last weekend was the  Spring Time in the Pines quilt show in Grass Valley  and  I was VERY excited when I heard that my friend Lynn Wilder would have a booth there this year. Lynn is just the sweetest and always makes you feel SO welcome. It was so fun to visit with Lynn & her sister Gail.  All of her quilt patterns are Amazing !!!

Her quilts were so gorgeous in person ........

Just love the Country Charmer in the fall colors ...

The House on Edgewood Lane Quilt

I have this quilt pattern and my fabric and can not wait to make this quilt

This vendor is Broadway Quilts from Sonoma and I really liked this Zig Zag quilt she had on display

I also wanted to share with you a few quilts I saw at the show ....


I am fortunate to have this quilt show only 10 minutes from me at the fairgrounds.
Can't wait till next year :-D

Spring is in the air and when I saw this quilt pattern Strawberries ' n Cream pattern by Mountain Rose designs on  you can find this wonderful pattern on her  ETSY   and Strawberry fields revisited fabric  line by Fig Tree it was love at first sight !!

 Their are 41 blocks in this quilt....

and this is the first block I have made such a fun and easy block to make

I have cut  and prepared  8 more blocks and have them on my small design boards by the machine ready to start sewing together. There are 41 of these blocks in the quilt.  I am hoping to sew 1 or 2 a day as I we have been busy in the yard and with family.

the sashing around the blocks is this pretty  cream fabric with soft pastel flowers and the cornerstones is the red polka dots.

Family ... Happy Easter

Hi Everyone!

Sorry I have been gone for so long in blog land.

I have been in a lot of stress this last few months so I have been doing no sewing or blogging. Just too hard to concentrate with everything that has been going on.

My Dad came down really ill in February and was in the hospital with Pneumonia , urinary track infection and we almost lost him. He was then sent to a rehab home for 5 weeks and was released last week because there was nothing more  they could do for him.

My sister and I found a wonderful in-home group in their area . Mom has finally agreed on having in home care and we had her meet the primary caregiver before she signed the contract.
I am happy to say that the caregiver is just the sweetest and loving woman and has been a big help for my Mom taking care of Dad at home.
So I am feeling very relieved now knowing he is taken care of :-D

I even did a little sewing yesterday and of course I have been working  in my gardens and thought I would share some pictures with you

Wishing you all a Very Happy Easter with your families.
I know I sure will
