AQS Quilt Show in Paducah, Kentucky

My BFF and I are having a blast in Paducah. My quilt didn't win a prize but I'm so proud to have it here that it doesn't matter. We're taking lots of pictures but the rules in the show book state that they may not be posted on the Internet without permission of the owners and AQS. So sorry. So here is mine. Leslie and I wish all of you could see what we're seeing. Breathtaking!

Anyone else going to Paducah? Just wondering.

First April Finish

I finished this little "quilt" this week. It's hand embroidered and beaded. Wool on flannel. Pretty cute, uh? 6 inches square.

March winnings!

I won the prize that Carrie gave for finishing a UFO in March. It came in the mail today, and WOW is Carrie generous!

It's always fun to get something besides JUNK in the mail! Thanks Carrie!

April UFO's

Once again I'm linking up to Carrie's UFO challenge at:
To try to finish some projects in the month of April.

One of these days, I'll return to the two that didn't get finished in February, but for now I'll introduce three more.

One is a tiny wool apple core quilt. I have the embroidery done and am ready to start the appliqué of the apple cores.

Another is a bright wall hanging that I did a couple of years ago as a class sample. It's a project using the x-block ruler. Needs to be quilted and bound.

And finally ( and not necessarily pictured in this order) is a quilt my stitch group is making for a special project for wounded soldiers. A local group is building a cabin on a lake where wounded warriors can come and bring their families for a time of rest and relaxation. The Tulsa community has really stepped up with donations to build the cabin. My stitch group is making 3 quilts for the beds. We have one ready to be quilted. And this one HAS to be done this month. Does it count that I'm getting help with this one???? The three quilts will be presented on the beds when the cabin has its grand opening Memorial Day weekend.

Hey! I won Carrie's giveaway for March! I'm excitedly waiting for the package to arrive.

Good luck everyone with your projects for April!

I've been battling a cold the past few days, but despite not feeling great we had a very nice Easter. My husband's dad and stepmom came from Missouri and all our kids were here.

Then yesterday, the grandboys were here again. They come every Monday afternoon after school because they have martial arts and scout activities in the evening and its too far for them to go home and the come back. So they eat dinner with me. Being that it was April Fool's Day (and National Wear a Mustache Day) I thought I should get more pictures of them.
