New Blogger

Well since I am new to this blogger world I thought I would share some of my creations and quilts..This is my civil war quilt,,BUTTERNUT AND BLUE by Barbara Brackman.. It was a BOM at Quilters Station in Lees' Summit, MO. It took us 2 years and Mr. Couple quilted mine by hand and it turned out really nice..

Friday Fun Day?

Well it is certainly one of my fun things, to get new fabric.. I ordered this from Sue Spargo..She has lovely  and unusual  designs and ever so often I get a small order .,,, Here is a peek and have a new great nephew that I am making a quilt, no decision on the pattern but have the fabrics.. So sweet and soft just right for a new baby.. I read this morning that a couple of others are making baby quilts, think I will head on over and see what they have to offer..................

I really love this time of year. To me it is very special because my 2 DD and I get to spend alone time together. Not that I don't love, love  my grandkids, but ya know what I'm sayin'??? Every year for the last 18 years we have gone to Mt.Vernon, Illinois for the MIDWESTERN HERB FEST. If you have never been, it is such a breath of spring.. Vendors with all things related to spring and gardening and free classes on many subjects of such.. You will not be disappointed!!
Take a quick look at their website and you can see pictures of past ones and vendors and classes they offer,, did I say they were  free??lol..
Heart candy, one of my favs,, look now because they won't last long..
