Two Special Birthdays

This is Sara, Her birthday was yesterday July 8Th. I tried to get an old picture last night to do this post. To wish her a Happy Birthday. Don't know if she reads my blog or not. This is a photo I just took of her graduation picture last year. She has now finished her first year in college in Greeley Co.

Also Happy Birthday to my sister's youngest Daughter, Roann who lives in Colorado Springs, We are the closest of the 3 daughters. She is the only one that quilts. She does read my blog sometimes. So Happy Birthday Roann, Hugs to both of you.

Roann has had more to do with Sara than I have, since she lives closest to her in Colorado. Starting with the Easter when Sara was very young ,Roann had them all down for dinner and stated quite a tradition with them for Easter and going to my sons for another holiday. This was the first of his cousins he became acquainted with as an adult. I was so happy for this. Thank you again Roann to being like a grandmother to her and Chris when he came along.

Things have been going on the same. DH still hasn't gotten more PT and his feet were swollen again yesterday. Will he ever get home again? That is the $64 question.

Then here is a couple pictures of the "T" quilt I just finished machine quilting. Took it to the Home to get the binding whipped down. It is large, so draped it over the couch to get this picture. These blocks are all signed with the person who gave me the little piece of fabric. We did this at both the Annapolis and Bowie retreats, so it is a combination of those two guilds. Many belonged to both. Dated 1995. So guess it is about time it was put together and finished. A few of the people have passed away. So is very special. This is a closeup of one of the corners to see the braided border and how I quilted it. As if I had been hand quilting. It is truly a scrap quilt.

Until the next time. Thanks for visiting.

Hi Eileen,
I love your braided border and your special scrap quilt. There is something very satisfying about building a quilt together.
Each day you are a busy lady- look at all the quilting you are getting done. What a good way to use your time while visiting your beloved.
Hope the special girls had special birthdays. My goddaughter turned 16 in June and we took her the quilt that I made her yesterday. She is truly sweet sixteen- growing into a lovely young woman. I will post a photo of it soon.
Thinking of you dear lady-
Warmest regards,

Happy belated birthday to Sara and Roann. My son's birthday is July 7th. Your T quilt is lovely and it must be even more wonderful to you with the signatures and memories. I hope that your DH starts getting his PT soon and improves.
