I really am still around, but many events have prevented me from posting! I was away for Mother's Day weekend and got home late Sunday evening. Then on Monday evening we had rain!!!! Yeah!!!! Here is the rain water running into the cistern from the porch roof!
But during the storm we had two power outages within seconds of each other and it corrupted some files on our computer, so it had to go to the computer doctor. So we were without the computer last week. Then I was away last weekend for a very busy weekend of moving furniture for Mollie, working my border collies at two different friend's places, attending Mikkie's baby shower (I'm not sure if I've mentioned it, but I'm going to be a grandma! Mikkie and Tyler are having a little girl, "Gracen Kate", in September. I've started on the baby quilt, so will post about it later!) and seeing all of my kids except one!!! I picked up the computer late Sunday evening on my way home, and though it didn't fry the hard drive, everything had to be initialized again. So, I've spent the past two days getting all our settings and programs up and running! I am quite capable, but my patience is not what it used to be! LOL! Most everything is going again, but even though we saved all the pictures, we lost all our email addresses - bummer!
But, at least I now have things where I can add new pictures and show you what I've been doing!
Last week I finished hand quilting and binding the baby quilt that I made for a friend's granddaughter. I'm very pleased with how it turned out!
I'm working full force on TWQ, but have been interrupted many times. My goal is to have the top finished by June 1 and in the quilt frame - it is another that I will hand quilt! I'm shooting for August to have it finished, but.....
Lyn's (DIL) favorite color is green, which was also my mother's favorite color. For our guild FQ swap this month we were to bring a FQ in our mother's favorite color. Well, I've been buying up green fabric for over a year so that when I made TWQ I would have some choices. So for this month's FFFF I'm offering 6 green FQ's in honor of my mother and Lyn!
All you need to do to be entered in the giveaway is leave a comment on this post and tell me your mother's favorite color and a memory or story concerning your mom and that color!
My mom loved green so much, that everything was green - rooms, clothes, jewelry, bedding, dishes - you name it, it was green. It was time to paint the trim on our house which had white siding and mom asked us what color we wanted and we said - "anything but green"!!! We thought "blue" would be a nice change. So, she brought home two gallons of "Blue Spruce" paint! Yep, you're right - it was green!!!
I will put the names in my resident cowboy's trusty black hat and draw a winner next Monday, May 28, which is also Memorial Day!
Blessings to each of you!!!!
