One more peek at projects....

And all those little bags. Let's face it, I just get a lot of pleasure from making bags....!!

And what about that Mardi Gras?

For The Mid Atlantic Quilt Festival, I just bought some fat quarters to make a Mardi Gras table runner.
Laissez le bon temps roulet!!

Historic Virginia Garden Week, 2011

This was the first year I was behind the scenes with Historic Garden Week. While I can't take much credit for the arranging, it was certainly fun to have a chance to learn and practice with someone who was so good at arranging these flowers! This was in the guest bedroom of our featured house.....
and this was in the bath!

Visiting my precious children

Bob finally convinced me I was going to see the children without him. A year was too long--he was probably tired of my crying and moping! I had a fabulous time! This was a perfect Sunday afternoon that was deemed my "Mother's Day" although this was March! I have the most wonderful daughter in law, and I am so blessed.
My first child and me!
My precious grandchildren---Ruthie who was 3 years, 3 mo. and Elliot, all 18 months of him in this picture.
The only time he slept in my arms I think during this trip. He is usually just a barrel of energy.

Those Christmas projects never posted!

This is the bag I made for Whitney. She brought it with her to Cazenovia! I really did like this bag.
Kate's Christmas bag. Notice the turtles!
This bag is prettier than it looks; it was pretty washed in this picture. But she loved it, and that's what counts!
