It seems like forever since I have posted. So much has gone on.

House is done (still unpacking). The walls are butter yellow with laminate floors instead of wall to wall carpet. This is more cat friendly.

I now have a car that a neighbor of a good friend GAVE to me for free. I have only put $250 into it so far. Most of that is normal things I would have done anyway. It is a Toyota Tercel (87).

Now for the fun part.
I participated in the Friday Night Sew In. I stayed at my friends house over the weekend and sewed my little heart out. It was much needed. Here are some pictures of what I did.

Crumb blocks

Owls in construction
sorry it is sideways

Owls in hiding

You can find the pattern for the Owls Here.  They truly are very easy and addicting.

I am adding a picture of June's project because she hasn't quilted for at least over 2 months.
She found out last month that she had breast cancer. 2 weeks after finding out she had a mastectomy and after all the test she is cancer free. No chemo or radiation needed.  She was lucky she caught it early.
June's blocks.

Well, I am going to stop now since I am at the library and time is almost over.
