I've always wanted one of the dark purple lilacs, and guess what we have blooming in the new yard. I wonderful deep purple lilac and next to it is a beautiful white one. I love to go out by them and just relax and take in their beauty and the lovely smell. I can meditate on life and remember those we have loved and lost in a peaceful setting.

On Saturday my sister brought my neice Morgan over and I helped her make her first quilt. She did a great job. I think she had a good time and may be a future quilter. She was really interested in all the fabric all around the room and kept checking out what was going on at my machine while working on her project. I started a quilt using the Swanky line from Moda. I really am liking these fabrics, so very well swanky.

Just a quick post to wish all my friends a Happy Mother's Day. Mine was very busy. I had to take Rich to his brothers Saturday morning at 6:15 so the guys could drive 6 hours, to see their mom for mother's day, then they had to turn around sunday morning and drive another 6 hours to be home with Mary and I. When I got home a friend of ours and I went to Rochester and bought the things we need so Rich can start a new hobby. He's going to try his hand at making wine. His first batch will be a Pomegrante zinfadahl. It's really ummy over ice. Since dad was gone the girls and I decided to go to a movie, Hannah Montana, it was actually not that bad. I enjoyed it more then I thought I would. Jassmine even said she would be ok with a move to Tennessee if she found herself a cowboy that looked like the one in the movie. lol Then we went and spent the afternoon with my mom and sister. When I got home Serena came over and Payton who is all of 3 months old now spent the night so mommy could work the night shift. Daddy is still very nervous about the night feedings, which is very understandable, after what happened 2 years ago. Saturday was also the anniversary of Olivia's death. She is such a good baby and didn't give me any trouble. Then Phil dropped off Lillie at about 5:30 this morning, and they stayed until about noon. Then the girls and I were off to pick up Rich at his brothers where we got to spend time with them and our son and his bride to be stopped. I got 2 new angels to join the colection and the soundtrack to Hannah Montana for mother's day. I will be back to post on the wine making progress. I can't post on the progress of my current quilt project until the end of the month after I see Shawn wouldn't want her to see her gift until I give it to her.

One of these mini-honeybuns will soon be turned into my friend Shawn's birthday present. The pattern looks simple enough and I'm very excited to try it.
Josh's birthday quilt. I hope he loves it as much as I do. It's even cuter then I had imagined.
These are some pictures of the quilt top and the components that went into it, I'm making for my nephew Josh. It's on my machine right now and about 2/3rds of the way quilted. I really need to practice my stippling. I get going good for a while then seem to loose my groove. I guess practice practice practice is what I need.
