Parties, parties and more parties.

 Lori (friend) gave us a tour of her old house she and her husband remodeled. At the end of our
 tour she had a wonderful party for us.
 For lunch Mother treated us to Clementines. 
The pounds keep jumping on.

 Last weekend Terry and I spent the weekend with the Sensenig family.  Here we are having an "engagement party" for Autumn and Laban. :)

 This past weekend my siblings and I celebrated mothers 90th birthday with a open-house birthday party.

. We collected some of mothers painting....

 and had them on displayed along with.....

 some of her china painting.

 Another get-to-gather this weekend was the Rlaph/Vera Heatwole reunion. Here are some of my aunts looking at old pictures.

Many cousins reconnected and....

...had fun together as well as making memories.
As a Quilter 
I just finished this baby quilt from scraps in my stash.  It is quilted with circles of all sizes. 

I am in the process of quilting circles on a star quilt.
Mark your calendars for the "Quilting Down By The River" retreat in June.


  1. How lovely to have so many family get togethers . . . my family is scattered all over the country, so we never all get together at the same time anymore. The last time was when momma died and that was because we were actually planning her 100th birthday party and the day before she surprised us all and went to live with the Lord. Your quilts are so pretty, I really like quilting in circles, I think it's my favorite.
    Have a lovely week.

  2. It sounds like you had a great time with family. How special! I really like the striped dashing in your baby quilt. What a great idea. Thanks for sharing this with Oh Scrap!

  3. How I envy your large family get togethers. They must be such fun. What a great idea for the baby quilt. So simple and yet it looks very effective.
