Double Irish Chain Quilt Finished

I was able to finish 2 UFO’s this past week. The first is the double Irish chain quilt that I have been working on for my mommy. It is the first big quilt that I have free motion quilted. It turned out ok. There are a few imperfections. I am a beginner at this after all. My hubby said it looks great. I am my own worst critic.



My mom asked me if I had any baby quilt that she could have for a baby shower gift for Marty’s daughter. She is have a baby boy. I told her I was sure I could come up with a top that was already finished. I found the red white and blue bow tie top that was waiting to be finished. I finished it yesterday. I hope she likes it.


Saturday Tyler made peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies. They were so good. Tim told him to make a special cookie for me. Here is what I got.


Aren’t they sweet?

Last week when it was very cold one night the dogs water froze over outside. When I emptied it out into the sink this is what was left. I thought I made for a great picture.


Andrew is feeling better. Thank you to everyone for the well wishes. He has been fever free for two days and is almost back to his old self. He is playing and crawling around. He is still wheezy and coughing but the doctor said that will last 2 to 3 weeks.
