Schools Out

Wow the last 2 weeks have been crazy. We had one more round of strep and my son got hit in the eye with a baseball. That meant a trip to the emergency room. He is ok, no damage to his eye. It did not even get as black as we thought it would. Poor guy he is an accident waiting to happen.
School got out on thursday. That's exciting. We were so ready.
I have gotten 2 quilts finished and another started on the longarm. That does not even count the one I screwed up the quilting on. Now I am going to rip 2/3rds of the quilting out. I have never had to do that before. It doesn't look like it is going to be fun. That is how unhappy I am with the quilting.
Me and the kids are heading out to Florida tuesday morning. We are going to visit family, friends, and go deep sea fishing in the gulf. I feel like I need to put my son in a bubble while we are there! I just hope he makes it through the week unharmed.

New Rug Pattern

Happy Mothers Day!

This is my new rug hooking pattern. It is called Calypso. It is quite a bit bigger that the first one I did. I have seen a few of them finished and they are really pretty. Each one is so different from the next. It is a little harder to color plan these rugs since I do not have a huge stash of wool. So I am going to start on the basket and work from there.
I am very excited. My husband got me and my daughter tickets to see Fleetwood Mac in concert in June. They are one of my favorite groups.

My New Toy

I didn't plan on waiting that long to show you what I got in Paducah. My internet has been out and it took forever for Comcast to get to my house. I guess with all of the storms we have had in the last 2 weeks they have been slammed, so they say! We had to get a new modem and a new wireless router. It was not fun being without it. I look so many things up on the computer. At least I have had time to play with my toy.
It is the Accuquilt fabric cutter. I have cut out 2 quilt tops. I am also making jelly rolls of my hand dyed fabric. So I have cut almost 50 yards of fabric into 2 1/2 inch strips. It was awesome to have for that. I think I am going to love it.
