Quilty Kind of Day

Keely is home from school today not feeling well.  She is snuggled up in her bed resting and since I am unable to go anywhere it's QUILT TIME!!! Was able to complete a table topper that I had cut out last night.  Really like the pattern and colors.  It was a kit, however, I will definitely use this pattern again and again for gifts.

It is a spectacular day out today in Castle Rock.  The winds are down a bit and the view from my kitchen never ceases to calm my spirit.  I love it here!
I also finished another table topper on Monday that I got as a kit.  Totally hated the fabrics that came with it, they looked nothing like the picture I used to order it from.  Instead I substituted charm square packs I had in my stash.  I am pleased with the result and this will make a nice size table topper.
Finally I had to put down a beautiful picture of my little one going to her first dance.  It was a daddy/daughter ball and they looked fabulous if I do say so myself!

Happy Valentine's Day

It's been quite a ride this last year.  Moved back to Colorado after being away for 32 years!  Get to look at this amazing view every time I look out the delightful

Keely is growing like a weed.  She turned 8 last month and it is so much fun having her in our lives.  She brings so much joy and definitely keeps us young.  Parenting as grandparents is as rewarding as it is challenging.
We walk back and forth to school almost every day, weather permitting.  It's a great time for us to share what's on each other's mind.  Our rescue mix Chloe is our walking buddy.  She gets pretty put out if we don't take her with us.

Quilting has kept me very happy.  I am so in love with every step of the process.  Have fallen madly in love with using a long arm and a saving like a mad fiend to purchase my own machine.  It's getting harder and harder to rent time where I have been going as they have become quite popular! 

Made this for my youngest grandson, looks so yummy.
