Busy trying to catch up.

Here are a couple of quilts that I have done in the past. They are a customers which I found so interesting.
The gypsy one is made using old hankies, brings back memories.

This is a quilt I finished for a customer. She is a really girly, girl, so wanted flashy hearts, hence the gold metalic in ribbon hearts. Glad to have that done, as metalic thread and I are not the best of friends.

Well Thanksgiving was here and not it is almost gone. Not sure if I am happy or sad, or maybe a little of both.

My DH and I went to North Platte, NE to his sisters for the evening. Left here then went to WalMart for an ink cartridge. Couldn't believe that WalMart was open for the entire day. Do they not every close?

Need to really get to cranking in the next week, have a couple of art quilts to finish for Christmas presents, then one to do for the art show. All that I am doing is important, but time consuming.

Have a great remainder of the day all,

Where has the time gone?

We had plans, heavy on the HAD, but it is all okay as things just work out that way some times. I have two older sisters, one 72 in Des Moines, IA and the other 63 lives 8 miles from me. We had reservations to stay in the Crescent View Bed and Breakfast in Crescent, IA, home of the ole Pink Poodle Steakhouse. First my sister near me got sick, then my DH got sick, now what does that tell ya? My sister was getting much better, and my DH was or still is suffering, but some better. To explain, my DH is a insulin dependent diabetic, for those who have never been around such an illness, stress, sickness, weather, and/or just about everything affects his blood sugars. So he can go from a wonderful 100, to 400, then drop to 20 in a matter of moments. Well maybe not that quick, but it is bad, so we decided not to partake in the B&B right now. We will be planning again, as life is too short, and we are not getting any younger. My first husband was 44 when he died, so life can be too short.
Enough of all that, hope everyone has had a great weekend, and I will be working on my "Live Forever Little Butterflies" quilt, so stay tuned.

Time has gone by too fast...

Today I was able to sleep one extra hour, what a blessing! I can't remember the last time I have not been in such a rush to get up, get breakfast and then be off to my daily tasks. Life is passing by and I am not taking the time to smell even one rose.
Tomorrow will be the first day of the week, and of a life change.
