Finished a UFO

I finally finished my Row by Row. It was a mystery row of the month I started in 2007. Part of the deal was the LQS would also quilt it for free when it was finished. So it has been done and quilted waiting on binding for over a year. I am sooo bad. I hate doing binding. I am glad it is done though because I really like it. I think I will keep this one for myself.

I really tried to do it in all Thimbleberries fabric but just couldn't handle it. I had to add some brighter colors to it.

Now I am working on 2 doll quilts. They need to be done this week. They should be. Cross your fingers.

Look what was in the mail

The mail was wonderful today. Alexis sent my doll quilt from It represents spring and it is beautiful!!! She did an excellent job. I love the colors. Thank You Alexis

Also I got these in the mail from some of my swappers in the doll swap. I do not know whose idea it was but I sure do like them.

These are 3 1/2 squares. They will make up a really nice little quilt. Last round they sent me nine patches and I ended up with over 80.

And there was not any bills!!! What more could you ask for.

Now I have to get 2 doll quilts finished and mailed. I have been working on them. One is giving me a hard time.

You know you are a redneck when.........

The dog helps with the dishes!!

We had Easter at our nephew's house. Greg and Karmen really get into Easter. They hide about 600 eggs in their woods. The kids just love it.

They were very disappointed my oldest son's family could not make it. They are the ones with the 6 girls.

Their dog Roxie decided to help with the dishes. It was a riot to see her.
