Anniversary Fun


The kids came home for out anniversary….some had to work at their jobs during the day but we were able to get together Saturday night for supper.  Then we sat around a campfire and just hung out.  I really needed that.

Before they all started heading home I snapped a picture of them all together.

Left to right it’s Kayla, Karl, Kalissa, Kelli and Kasjen (Buck)…Betsy snuck into he picture too.

Sitting around Kalissa asked Hubby and I both what was some advice they’d give on marriage.  Hubby’s advice…”Don’t lie”….my advice…”Keep the romance alive”.  There are 100 other things I could have said…choose your battles…forgive…don’t be selfish….oh so many other words of advice.

I do have to say of everything that’s happened in those years, these kiddos are what makes us happiest.  They are a good crew and we’re really proud of all of them.  I just hope that they can all experience the life long happiness that a good marriage can bring….

Stash Report….


We had fabric in again this week.  Ya-hoo.  I love fabric..I love it a lot.  Sue from the Manchester, Iowa area contacted me wondering if Kelli and I were interested in some fabric.  We jumped at the chance and ended up with a couple wonderful stacks of goodies.    I’ve already sorted through a bit of it but take a look.


I just know much of this is going to find it’s way into some beautiful quilts.  There is over 160 yards of fabric in the box.  I guess Kelli and I will be busy sewing away.  Sue had it all so nice and neatly organized.

Kelli and I are “fighting” over this fabric….


and this one too…you know us, anything dog catches our attention!!


Thanks for thinking of us Sue.  Kelli got to meet Sue but it didn’t work out for me to go.  Hopefully we’ll meet sometime soon.

We did have some fabric out this week.  I provided the backing and binding for Kelli’s Talkin’ Turkey quilt.  You can see it here if you missed it.  I really liked the quilt!

We have a give away going on for some great Olfa rotary cutting products.  If you missed that, it’s here.

Used this Week:  7 yards

Used year to Date:  83 yards store bought +  64.5 Moda and gifted fabric + 19 yards of recycled/thrifted fabric…
