I made this denim Texas quilt for Amber when she was attending Texas State University.
I have several quilts to make this year and have been whacking out, tracing, and cutting squares today! I am designing FOUR Texas crib quilts for Amber's Quads - each a bit different. Thanks to friends and family for all the donated jeans!
I have learned to make sure the red is colorfast!
Wonder if Amber has noticed her star is a bit on the pink side in spots?
(You know she does NOT like pink!!)
Yesterday I hung out at my favorite store - HEB!
After I finished my shopping - and while I was waiting for Amber to finish getting her massage - I got all comfy in one of these over sized Texas rocking chairs.
I called my mother and we had a nice little phone chat!
When I take Mother to the closest HEB near our home - Mother and I end up in the bench section! We sit and visit - usually while waiting for Louis Dean to bring the car around and load the groceries.
I took all but one of these pics at the HEB here.
The top middle one is of the wreath on Amber's front porch.
If I am not mistaken, it was a house warming gift from Carla.
She now has a blog: My Life: A Little of This......a Little of That.
And talk about QUILTS!!!! She is all about Texas and Quilts.
Not like the ones I make, either. She is an artist with a needle and does those heirloom quality ones.
The front porch had a layer of sawdust on it after Mike finished putting in their new flooring. I gave it a good cleaning and freshened it all up!
We are celebrating Amber feeling better tonight.
Mike is taking us out to dinner at the Outback Steak House.
While I usually order a salad or baked potato (I am not that big an eater!) -
I have been told I am to order a 'real meal' - to use Mike's words.
When we get home I shall begin to pack up my bags and load my car for the trip home tomorrow. Louis Dean, Lucy and Maggie have all missed me!
I guarantee you I will NOT be coming alone on my next trip down here!!
And I will be back soon......
The 'Welcome' mat is always out!
