Finished, I Think.

I have finished this quilt. I quilted it by shadowing all the flowers. It got a little heavy there so then I just ditch stitched the stars. When I look at in this photograph it needs more in the sashing. It is already bound and ready to give this weekend. If I do more quilting what color thread would I use? Oh well, I will see how I feel about it later. For now I will leave it as done.

Oh, Inspiration

This week we had a meeting of the local quilt guild and our guest speaker was Sally Collins. She was great and so inspiring. She had a a two day class but I have to work. Jeff gets cranky if a cancel a day of work to quilt.

Nicole and Kevin went to camp this week. I miss them. We did raffle this quilt to help raise money. Sorry Marion you did not win, but I was rooting for you. A lady named Dot won and she had the spot already for it and promised to take good care of it.

Go Giants.

Jeff and I went to a Giants game yesterday. We had a very nice time. It was 104 degrees at home so it was a nice reprieve when it was 60 degrees in SF. Your body does not adjust quickly to that big a change in temperature. 60 may not be too cold but I was freezing. Fortunately I had my car quilt in the car to keep my lap warm.
These Guys were Huff's personal fan club but about half way through the game they put on their shirts and sat down.
The fog rolled in about the 4th inning.
Excited to be here.

Can't seem to edit so here is a bonus picture. Kevin is making his own gluten free pizza. He is not gluten free but his momma is so you gotta do what you gotta do. He liked it, and so did I.

Summer Fun

A post for the grandparents that like to see pictures of their kids having fun. We went to a BBQ party at a friends house like we do every year. Hot day, cool pool, too much to eat. What fun!

Kevin Turned Ten

Kevin turned ten. A great time was had by all. We rented the community pool and had it all to ourselves.
Here is Kevin with my cousin's son Nicolas. He is 5 and thinks the world of my kids. He is a great little guy.

We did another triathlon last weekend. this time Kevin, Alea and their friend participated. I did too, and still fit in my wetsuit. Don't worry I did not include that photo.

This event took place in Rancho Seco California. It is the home of a non operating nuclear power plant. See the towers in the back. This is the cooling reservoir for the plant. Kinda creepy hu?

They are the 2 in the back. They rode and ran together. So much for racing.
A proud girl finishing her first triathlon.
He still loves his Mommy.
