Happy 4th of July

Here's Eileen 'on her horse' and that's Sherm, her pooper-scooper.

Linda is standing by her parade float.

I asked Elizabeth is her insurance was paid up before she got on her son's motorcycle.

Here's Wally. Lots of balloons. Wally and wife Judy had the music for the parade. He even found a gray ponytail to pin onto the hat he is wearing.

There was even a wagon load of puppies in the parade.

And this golf cart is packed with the 4th of July spirit. Even the stuffed toys were in 4th of July regalia.

We also had an ATV all dressed up with a BIG flag in the parade.

This is my Schwinn adult trike. I love this thing. It only has one speed but it is just right for me. Handy basket in the back, too.

What a great 4th of July week-end. First we had a small parade in our community. What fun to see everybody with their golf carts, wagons and bikes all decorated in red,white and blue.

There was also a quilt show in Old Poway Park that was put on by my guild, Friendship Quilters.There were about 45 entries. It was a great show. The winner of the most patriotic quilt was Terry Seaberg's quilt.

Viewer's Choice in the Whimsical categroty was Cheryl Ranes "My Inner Diva".

And Best of Show was this Baltimore Album by Audrey Mueller.

Congrats to the winners. It was another great show.

Judy's Diamonds

A photo is all I can manage. It is all half-square triangles. I used the panto named Agave from Intelligenting Quilt.

Betty's Table Toppers

Betty plans to sell these table toppers at a coming craft show. She used flannel as the batting because she really wanted it to lay flat. I chose:

Bending in the Wind (Sweet Dreams) for the Trees quilt

Christmas Poinsettias (Sweet Dreams) on the poinsettia quilt with Rheingold gold thread.

And this fun quilt of coffee jumps has the panto Teacups from Sweet Dreams.

Sailboats in Batik

This is Dennie's quilt. It has the most wonderful batiks in it. Then she bought the backing which has sailboat printed on it. So what else should we quilt but sail boats. I used King Tut De Nile variegated thread.

All is right in my quilting world

A couple weeks ago, the scissors zinger on my apron became inoperable. The
reason I started using the zinger is because I cannot keep track of my scissors, snips, what have you. I blogged about my problem and my quilting buddy, Glenda (aka quilting nanny)sent me a new zinger. It works great. Thank you, Glenda.
All is right in my quilting world again.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
