This is my grandson he is two, his mom had just stepped away from her machine for a minute. He is trying to feed a piece of paper thru the machine. I say a new quilter is born get that boy some fabric.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, every where I go.....
This Friday I will finish the last of my shopping, and let the wrapping begin.
Didn't make any Christmas gifts this year.....but plan on correcting that for next year... oh wait am I pushing the New Years Resolution thing. I somehow feal inadequate compared to some of the people I follow, ladies and gents how do you do it all???? do you work outside the home and still accomplish a lot...if so please share how you can accomplish so much I need the motivation.
I have been thinking about endings and beginnings lately. My last post was back in June when my brother passed away. A sad ending, today I post about beginnings, happy beginnings. The attached pictures are of my Grandson Hunter, he will be joining our family in a few weeks. I cant wait to kiss that chubby little face, makes me so happy to welcome another little boy into our family.
Yesterday early in the morning my brother lost his battle with cancer. My brother fought a long hard battle, with cancer and other demons in his life, I hope he now has found some peace. I will miss him, I will miss his laugh his sometime raunchy but always funny jokes,his creativeness Dick you can be proud your boys are strong sensitive responsible men, we will love and look after them for the rest of our lives we are family, (we are Hogans, we are proud, strong and loving). I will hold you in my heart forever, may God hold you in the palm of his hand for all eternity.
A while ago I posted about a Christmas quilt that I made a long time ago, and I tied the quilt. There is nothing wrong with tied quilts but now that I have a longarm machine, everytime I looked at that quilt even though I loved it I knew it could be so much better.
(can you see the jingle bells?)
so.... I took it apart and quilted it. Here are some pictures and now I can pack this one away until next Christmas, time to find something springy to put out.
I can finally post pictures again, thanks to my new camera and a lot of trial and error.
Here are some pics of my cute cute grandkids at yesterdays Easter egg hunt. They hold the hunt inside the middle school gym, for some reason we tend to have rain or the threat of rain every year. Everyone had a great time and grandson met the Easter Bunny for the first time. I'm not sure he liked Mr. Bunny to much! lol!

Well it seems I am still pictureless, will be buying new software and maybe more memory this weekend! I miss being able to post new pictures.
Finished quilting a customer quilt yesterday and loaded another small lap quilt, hope to have that one finished tomorrow night. Then I have a large edge to edge to quilt, then I can finish quilting my own. I have been working on my Farmers wife blocks again and have nine finished. I have also been working on completing a flannel quilt that my mom started, want to get that one done soon as well.
