A quilt for Mardi

Mardi has been taking me home from quilt retreats for years. 

So I decided to make her a little wall hanging.  Maybe 2 feet x2 feet. 

I had made this quilt previously and brought it to retreat to quilt and finish it. 





I even added a hanging sleeve

Curtain for preschool

I was asked by abigials preschool teachers from last year to make a cabinet curtain for them.

I had some half yards of fabric and came up with this.

I used velcro to attach it

Michelles Quilt

My longest friend Michelle moved into a new place last year.
I made this quilt for her. I have been meaning to do a plus quilt for a long time. Finally at spring retreat I was able to make this. 


I did it in one day. drew out the plans. cut it up. sewed, basted, quilted and bound before midnight!

She loves orange. Her house is in greys. and she loves butterflies. 

Plus it looks really good on my moms porch





I was goign to write the year and then wrote my postal code... lol! I fit the year on after all. 





She loves it!

Looks awesome on her couch

and good on her chair too!

new van

well , we were not planning buying a van quite so soon. 
But a pre road trip inspection came up with a few things that needed done so while we were waiting on the inspection i wondered the car lot and found a van i liked.
I took it to Dave in Lenoir and he liked it too.


So we bought it. We didnt get a whole lot for the trade in value but the trade in covered the extended warranty. 
our old van and new


A brand new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica 
we signed the paperwork on it and it only had 83 miles on it! most of those were put on taking for a test drive to lenoir and back

Michelle our sales lady at Steve White Motors was excellent. 

kids loved all the new things

and buttons

look at all the pens from the old van!

almost a week later we got in the van and went on a 3 week road trip. 


i think the kids liked it :)


It got slobbered on

a few rain storms

lots of napping

and kids in the far back while we had mom and dad with us

and the best part is the DVD player for trips over 4 hours!

4 weeks and 5000 miles later!

all in all we are very happy with it. 
We love the electronic stuff like the push button start and automatic doors and hatch.

We raised just over $200 for the preschool!! so awesome!









This is the quilt that the elementary school got. 
Ii went in a silent raffle and im not sure what it made. but someone told me it was over 150 at some point.
