Here is my graduating class in 1980.  Can you pick me out?

Here we are in 2015. There are a few folks on this picture that didn't graduate from my class but did go to school with us at some time or another.

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! My first shipment of Amazingly Simple Triangle Stars books arrived on Thursday.

The Quilt Show

 I have some exciting news to share with you all.   The Quilt Show came to my home and spent the morning recording. 

This is my view of them.

Their view of me.  

It will be around a year before the interview will be shown on The Quilt Show.
Later on I demoed a 5 minute clip of template cutting and sewing. The whole process took about 4 1/2 hours but the final segment will be 12-14 minutes.

Wedding Preparation For Autumn and Laban

I decided to start this blog with Autumn's bridal shower. The party is going on behind us.  She was so blessed with many gifts.

Here is a peek inside of each day before the wedding.
Sunday we spray painted a heart mobile for some decorations.

Monday we made peach smoothies and also put a bushel of peaches in the freezer...

Melissa also helped with the smoothies.

 Mother came and helped us work green beans...

 and Autumn worked on tomatoes while I packed
 jars and kept the canner  going. 

Someone needs a break. 

Wednesday was the day Terry and Autumn grilled chicken.

Terry, Autumn and I chopped up the chicken for the burritos.

Wednesday evening all the children were home so we had a picnic along the river. You can see the excitement on these two love birds faces anticipating getting married.

Roasting marshmallows.

At the picnic I kept busy with grandchildren.

Thursday we set up the church.
(Sorry I forgot to take pictures)

 Friday Autumn and Roxanne picked flowers for the wedding. We also had a big crew at the church cutting and dicing food.

Autumn and I sure had a fun week getting ready for the wedding. 
Thanks to everyone who helped.

 I sure enjoyed helping with Asher and Brighton.  Their stay in Virginia was just way too short.

 Toddle-do! Sister Rebecca giving her good bye.

This was my Bible school treat.  The cracker, pretzel and candy corn represented the sacrifice Abraham offered to God

Terry, Christian, Laban, Autumn and I
went hiking to Humpback Rock.

When we got home we grilled hamburgers and
 ate our supper outside.

It has just about been a year since Rebecca and Abe were married.  Now here in a mouth we will have another wedding,
Autumn and Laban will be getting married.
  One thing Autumn wanted for her wedding was a signature quilt.  The two of us worked together on the quilt.
1.Cutting out leaves.

2. Getting the trunk of the tree ready to applique


4. Autumn with the quilt and ready for
 signatures and ready for her wedding.

Autmun's wedding dress needed some altering. 
It is all done and just waiting for July 25.
