Wow I'm home and still enjoying my summer

I can't believe my working trip is over and I've been home a week already.  I have had so much fun on my trip and in between.  Life is Good and God is Great.  I feel very Blessed.  Sat August 17th I attended a fun Baby Shower for my 31st grandbaby coming in November.  Proud Papa Earl & Proud Mamma Rikki were excited and the food was the best ever.  Aunty Beth & Nan did a Great job putting it all together.  I was so excited to be able to share the Baby Quilt I am making for little Amelia.  This is the top I finished at my quilt retreat this past July.  I have it ready to Quilt and plan to have it done by the time little baby "Amelia" arrives in November.

This is the Diaper Cake fashioned by my Daughter Beth.  She put it on Pintrest - it is just adorable
Rikki & Earl - New Parents to be. :)

I've returned from my Tennesee "working" Road Trip

Paducah Water Tower

My Visit to the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky

I enjoyed my Road Trip and even got to go to the quilt museum in Paducah KY.  I took some pictures here but was unable to take any inside the museum itself only in the Lobby.  I did get some great pictures of the Yo -Yo display there to share with you and other items.  The Quilts on Display were just Gorgeous!  The quilting and piecework was excellent and the display of quilts was fabulous.  Lol - can you tell I enjoyed them.  They also had an exhibit of Civil War Quilts and I fell in love with a simple log cabin variable that had so many pieces of different fabrics in each block and had a piano key border that continued with all different fabrics.  I would have loved to take a picture of that one.  I also saw quilt made of just simple blocks that repeated.  Nothing very fancy for most of them but just very refreshing to look at.  There were also a lot of applique quilts in this display.     

My Mother would have loved to see this pillow.  she loved making yo - yo's .   


I Enjoyed seeing all these little projects completed with the Yo-Yo's.
