A post from Kelli–

A while back my mother in law Renee asked her mom, Jason’s Grandma Lois where she would go if she could go anywhere. Her response was that she would like to go to the Grand Canyon. Well this week we made that happen!

I took a ton and a half pictures that I’m going to share, but I thought I’d give you a quick sneak peak so you could share in all of the fun we’ve had! As a side note, I’m trying to write this on my phone, so bear with me as all of the images and spelling may not be perfect.

So there are just a few of the pictures that we took! I have tons more that I’m going to be using for a little project for a gift.  I’d love to share all of the fun that we’ve had making such wonderful memories!

UFO Challenge

I didn’t get as far as I had hoped on my UFO work.  A bum foot isn’t good for jobs that require a lot of movement.  That has left me away from the quilting machine and doing things that require lots of ups and downs and measurements.  I did get this far…the center of Star Struck is together.

I also managed to get Blue Skies this far onto the quilting machine.

Hello all…This page FINALLY go the charity donations page put together.  It’s taken some work and time but it’s here and ready to be revealed.  We have LOTS of people and organizations that are awaiting your donations to their worthy causes.  You might remember a bit ago I got a bunch of left overs from projects and was looking for homes for them.  One of the people who I sent things to was Ronda.  Already she has worked her magic and made UFO blocks into an awesome quilt.  See…

This could have easily spent it’s life unfinished but given to the right person who has a talent for putting things together it can instead give warmth and comfort to another.  Doesn’t it look great!

I couldn’t be happier that this is going to get used and loved.  Thanks for your hard work Ronda!

Recouping and Cross Stitch

I spent the weekend with my foot up.  I am so bad at sitting, but I did it.  Ruby was super happy to hang out with me.

One of the best things for me to do when I have to have my leg up is cross stitch.

That’s what I did.  I finished one up and started another.  I love the selection process and picking out the next one to work on…next up a mini ABC sampler…as of writing this, I don’t have a single stitch in place.  I just know that one is up next.

One of the last times I wrote about cross stitching I asked for some advice on framing.  Well I got lots including some suggestions to buy some thrifted frames and have Hubby cut them down for me.  Well after watching a few youtube videos, here is our first joint effort on cutting the frame down, framing and mounting my cross stitch piece.
