thoughts and prayers for...

Cheryl's family and friends...Cheryl the quilt shop gal who was also a wife, mom, grandmother, nurse  and more. if you want to read her obituary go here.  she passed away from complications from a back surgery at 50 yrs old....
yesterday we tied quilts out at Jana's with Heidi ( Jana's DIL, and Cheryl's niece) Shana (Heidi's sister) and Brenda ( their mom, Cheryl's SIL, also grand babe #1s daycare mum). Luke,(Jana's son and Heidi's husband) stayed busy with grand babe #1..thank you Luke!
this is Shana's huge reversible t-shirt quilt. one side high school the other college and it was the first quilt she ever made! #1 g-babe is showing the egg he got when feeding Jana's chickens...

this is the jean quilt i made for Cindy (my partner in crime) i made it for her 60th birthday this Saturday. i made it using some of the jean squares i had left (i made her g-daughter one) from her late sons jeans. she had a hard time parting with her grand daughters quilt so i know she will love this one! she loves red and Jana had some beautiful red flannel print by red roaster that worked perfectly and we tied with a dark red thread. thanx Jana!

Luke showing g-babe how to shoot at a target! nooo not birds ect! altho i did hear shhh don't tell auntie Jody..... 

sister Jana always makes the best carmel rolls and had made Luke/Heidi a big batch of cookies and also had a hot dish in the oven for of Luke's favorite! shes such a great mum!
