Lots to Catch Up

I don't know why I can't seem to get into blog mode any more. I post and have every intention to keep posting. Then it has been over a month since I did. (big sigh) I will try to catch up with things here. I mainly keep my blog as a journal of my life.

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to the Care facility that my MIL lives in for a tea. It was really nice. I was glad to be able to go and share this with her. Since she never had any daughters, I was happy to do this for her. She will be 84 in October. She can't walk any more, and has trouble talking since the stroke, but still does pretty good for all her ailments and age. My MIL Fern...
I started cutting on mom's Carpenter's Star quilt the last week in January. I finished it the second week in May. Mom's 75th birthday was yesterday. I delivered her quilt to her on Saturday. She was so tickled. Made my day. She is showing it to all her friends at the apartment complex. Bragging her daughter up. LOL
My mom, Avalee...

Mom had me take the first quilt I made her off her bed and put it on her couch. I think it looks nice on the couch. Brightens up the living room. I made this about 7 years ago. It was one of the first quilts I made. I am glad to see I have improved. LOL
Yesterday was spent in Kansas City with the grandchildren. Maddison wasn't able to be there, but the other 4 were. It was a combined party for Izabella and Noah. They are growing up so fast. Izzie just turned 5, Noah is 7, Ava is 7, and Ashton will soon be 10. Maddison will soon be 4. Just growing so fast. I don't have any babies any more.
Oops, I need to go back a bit. We had a snowstorm on May 2nd. That is pretty much unheard of in Missouri. It didn't last long. It was all melted the next day. I was concerned about my garden that you see in the below picture, but all my veggies came through fine. It has been a really weird spring. It might be near 90* one day and a high in the 30s the next.
Hubby replaced my blender that he killed with the coconut flour disaster. He also bought me a new counter oven. I love it. I don't like to use my big oven for just the 2 of us as it heats the house up so much. This is so much nicer.
I have started working on a hexie project. I have never worked with hexies before, so this has been fun. I am still cutting them out right now, but will soon be ready for basting them, then hand stitching them. I also have finished a couple of small projects and have a lap size quilt top that I sewed a few years ago about ready for hand quilting. I hope to work on some of these projects this afternoon, since it is way too wet to think about being outside. I am glad I went to the cemetery Saturday, cause it would be a mess today.

Well, I think that about catches me up for now. Thank you for visiting. Have a great day.
