Yesterday was my mother-in-law's birthday. She would have been 29....again. She always claimed to be 29, which made it difficult to explain when her kids got to be older than she. Then she claimed she adopted them when she was just a child herself. She was funny.
She and I had a lot of fun together and she was one of my best friends. We loved playing piano duets together and I'm so thankful we have a couple of them on video. It's a little long, so if you don't want to watch the whole thing, just go to the end because we ALWAYS had a good laugh at the end. It made it really hard to ever play in public because we couldn't help cracking up at the end. Yesterday was a hard day. But today I'm trying to remember the laughs. I miss her alot.

And these are ladies from my stitch group:
This little group has become quite famous at Pow Wow. We've written 3 quilt related songs and have sung for 3 years in a row, adding a song each year.

The red flowers in the watering can conceal a pocket for my thimble.

As Tim hobbled back from the bathroom just a few minutes ago, I asked him to stop and pick the winning number. And it is.......#10 who happens to be Carrie P. She said I didn't have to include her since this was her first time reading her blog, but I'm sure some of the others had never read either. Congratulations, Carrie!
To answer a few questions: Yes, the quilt shown is an x-block; the napkins are doubled, turned right side out and I stitched a square and inch or so inside the outside.
The quilt won a third place ribbon in it's category at the fair so I'll throw in an extra fat quarter (I had promised 2 if it won a blue). My iris wallhanging won a blue ribbon! Whoo hooo! and the wall hanging I made for Tim's office won a white (third). Brittany's quilt didn't place. I haven't seen them yet, but my daughters went to the fair and reported back to me.
Tim is doing okay, but is uncomfortable. The visiting nurses will be here this morning to help him with his therapy.

We just got home from the hospital. Tim is doing well, but is exhausted. He's in bed now and I'm hoping he'll sleep all afternoon. He's in good spirits and getting around slowly but surely with his walker. He'll be recuperating here at home for the next 2-3 weeks. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers.

The fair starts tonight, but I'm having second thoughts about leaving him to go check on the quilts. We'll see how he is this evening. Tim's dad and step-mom are here to help keep him company.
