Grace Like Rain.

This song has been stuck in my head and heart the last couple days. But I couldn't find it, because I didn't know the title or the artist. So, this morning when I was listening to Pandora Satelite came on and I was able to look it up.

Thanks, Lord.

More work getting done on the apartment....

Here's what Robert worked on today. The ceiling in the kitchen. We wanted to put tin up in the kitchen, but tin is very pricey, so we opted for wood. It looks great, I love it, and can't wait to see it when it is finished!

My Happy Place.........

So, sometimes we quilters and lovers of fabric just need to be in a quilt shop where we feel loved and welcomed and can touch some fabrics.......It is our "happy place." Well Jennifer found these cups and so I thought I would take some pictures of our happy place.

I will admit I was just happier after going around the shop and taking these pictures.

Beach Diva Fabric!

We got in some "Beach Diva Fabric" today. It is so much fun. Marie and Sami picked out some of it to make Miranda Day Bags in a beach theme. Then Mary came in and did the same thing. I can't wait to see them when they are done!
We displayed it with some of the great fabrics they picked. It's beginning to feel like summer!

Yea, my new iphone!

So, Robert gave me a gift certificate for an iphone for Christmas. I waited until this weekend to redeem it. Megan was ready to go from a palm and a phone to just one thing. And, my current phone service contract was up so off to ATT&T we went.
However, things did not go as smooth as I thought it would, because you cannot redeem the apple gift card accept at an apple store. Well several phone calls to apple later Megan and i both have iphones and are happy.
Merry Christmas to me.

The Blue and White fabric is in....

and a lot of it has gone flying out of the shop!
This is the Cambridge Square Collection. I ordered it in the blue and white and the tan and brown. It is a lovely collection.

It is also Quest for a Cure, which is great. I had a woman come in and buy 3 yard from each of the blue bolts and the all of the big blue and white floral. Yea! I can't wait to see what she does with it!

Getting ready for the Loft tours.

So, we are part of the downtown loft tours on May 1st and 2nd. and we had an opportunity to be in Augusta Magazine. Robert took a day off from the hospital and I took a day off from MCG and the shop to clean and sort and get some stuff done around our house. Here are the results. Scarfs hung on our windows, to finish them off and a clean bedroom.

Quilts hung by my sewing machine...

And the desk and computer moved into the spare bedroom.
We still have some stuff to do, but this gave us a kick in the bumm to at least get started.

A Weekend of quilting.

Beth came this weekend and we quilted three quilts that she had pieced. They were lots of fun to quilt.
This one is a beautiful picture quilt of Katelyn.

This one is a block of the month that we finished last year and are just now getting it quilted. I made her do this one in batiks and the floral one as well! hmm, i don't think she has finished the floral one.

This one in grays and black was lots of fun to quilt as well. The quilting really shows up on the back. I do love the swirl echos.
