A bit of This and That

My grd C came over for a few hours and we made this fun bouquet of daffodils after she ate some breakfast. C said she loves to come to our house cause I always have some fun thing to do. I picked up this kit last year thinking that it would be fun to make one day for the kids. Yep, I was right! C also said the best part is that it didn't need any glue LOL
As you can tell I was ready for a hair cut later that day!


Our quilt group meets weekly and last Tues was our community service week. We take the opportunity to spend one whole meeting creating, basting, machine quilting and binding all sorts of quilts that then get donated to several different causes such as Project Linus, Parent support group for children/babies who are in long term or very serious hospital stays and sometimes our projects go to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints humanitarian projects or St Peter's Catholic Church in American Fork since we have members of both in our group. Just a few photos from last Tues. Peggy holding up one of the quilt tops ready to be basted and you can see behind her larger tops on hangers ready for backs and basting so they all can be quilted. Next picture is Christina preparing the batting and then bottom is ME, pressing one of the backs.
We are lucky to have the quilt room that is just for us at the Sr Center here and we use our fund raising quilt to purchase backing fabric, and batting for our many quilts.
