CGQC January/February Finishes

My first completed quilt in 2011 is for an Etsy customer of mine...Ms. Texas.  She was a real hoot to work with and funny.  I've had 3 other customers (Ms. Arkansas, Ms. Arizona & Ms. New Hampshire) before her and didn't really blog about it.  I don't know why, I guess I wanted to make sure they were happy with my work before I opened my big mouth...lol!  But I have to admit, the t-shirt quilts I have done were really fun to make.  And while I was making them...I wondered what all the stories were about - behind each shirt.  Like Ms. Arkansas had the quilt made for her daughter that just went away to college.  The daughter was a princess/tennis pro.  Then there was Ms. Arizona, her son is like a super smart/musically talented/church socializing kid.  This young man played at Carnegie Hall in NEW YORK!  How cool is that?  Oh, and then there is Ms. New Hampshire...her husband is like an avid runner/marathon guy.  He had all these shirts from the same event that spanned over like 10 years.  It was exciting to make those quilts.  Consider this a reminder...save those shirts...just in case you might want to make one down the road.  I know I am.

And here is my second finish for 2011.  I just finished this quilt yesterday.  It's for my sister's BFF.  My sister picked this fabric out at Hancock's in Biloxi.  She did good on the color choices.  I used black for the backing.  It turned out real nice.

Wonky Log Cabin Blocks

I managed to work on my wonky log cabin blocks and do some work on my sister's BFF's quilt today.  I'm hoping to have both quilts done by this weekend.  But it's been so cold, all I want to do is ball up like a big ol' bear! lol!  Hope y'all are staying warm!

1935-1939 pictures of the U.S.

Yes, this is another email I received that I wanted to share with you.  The pictures are supposed to be from 1935-1939, just 70 some years ago!

And we think we've got it bad!  Makes complaining about no cell service, high gasoline prices, the drive thru not moving fast enough, ect., a bit ludicrous.

Like I always say, even when things are going good or bad...LIFE IS GOOD!

A PIF from Terry...

A week ago I get this package...what could it be?  I didn't order anything...or did I?  lol!  My PIF from Terry!  When I opened the package...is that 3 Sisters?  M. E.?  Yes it is!!!  The table topper is just beautiful!  Along with a sweet card and all the goodies she sent - WOW!  What a special gift from such a special lady.  I am one lucky gal!!!  Oh, and another cool part is that Terry wrapped everything in the strawberry fabric & tied it with red ribbon...TOO CUTE!  After receiving this gift...I'm looking forward to doing my PIF.

Terry, thank you from the bottom of my heart!
