quilted cake

This is a picture of a wonderful cake that was made by one of my guild members for our June potluck. It tasted pretty
good too.
I actually been getting some sewing done. I've gotten 3 friendship blocks made for the guild. I am still a few behind. I now belong to a connecting threads group that is doing a birthday swap. There are 20 members. I have 5 blocks done for that.
I have finished the 12 blocks for my guild challenge and now have to decide how to put them together. They are laying out
on the family room floor and I spend time looking at them anytime I go to my sewingroom to sew. What to do, what to do.
Hope everyone is doing good. Happy quilting.

OOps, guess I should have gone to the blog first to see the last message. Shows I really like this cake
second picture added is a sunset from our deck.

quilted cake

Isn't this a wonderful cake. One of our guild members made it for our potluck, last night. It tasted great too.
I took my Mom to the potluck. The food was great. We had a guest speaker. Quilter, Wayne Kollinger. What a trunk show.
He designs his own quilts and teaches. He has a book coming out very soon on how to design quilts. I would suspect that our guild will try to get him to do a class or two in the coming year. He also has pieced alot of different alphabets. Not paperpieced.
I went on a nursing course today. My Mom and Dad left as I went off to my course. They are now on their was home. It sure was nice to have them here.
Happy quilting,

I just looked for new pictures and realized that I have to upload them first. So no pictures for today.
My parents have been visiting. I take my Mom to my guild potluck tonight and then they are heading home tomorrow.
They've been here 2 weeks. We made curtains for my bedroom this week. I have vertical blind in there but they were actually too small for the window. The new curtains look really nice.
Guess I'd better go and start my day. I'm on a course tomorrow and my parents will be leaving in the morning at the same time that I do.
Happy quilting,

flowers and challenge

It worked this morning.
So this is the bouquet from my hubby for our 20th wedding anniversary in April. Also. the second picture is a challenge at my guild. The block is the same pattern block with the colour placement different for each block.
Teal is one of my favourite colours.
Happy quilting.

This is the first time since April that I could get onto my blog. For some reason I could not get it to open.
The photo that is loading is unquilt related.
The bouquet of flowers that my husband send to my work for our 20th wedding anniversary.
They were just beautiful.

Well the first try didn't work. I'm trying again. That one didn't work either. Oh well. Will have to try another time for that one.
I'll try another picture.

mmmm that didn't work either. Guess I will not be adding pictures tonight.
One more try.... says it was done but I don't see it. Oh well. that's it for tonight.
My parents are here visiting. I haven't gotten too much sewing done in the last week.

I'm on holidays while they are here. We flew to Yellowknife for an over night trip on my hubby's flight benefits. It was a very nice 2 days with my parents. My hubby, Dave took a week off work as well but he is back to work tomorrow.
They will be here till the 15th. I don't go back to work till the 17th.

My quilt guild potluck is the coming Thursday night. I've missed the last two June ones. I'm taking my mom to this one.
Well. I have to be up with Dave at 5:30 tomorrow morning so I'd better head to bed . It's 11:15 pm here now.
Hopefully I can get back on here again soon. I think that it has something to do with using a Mac computer. Not sure.
Happy quilting.
