Memorable Quotes

Though we can never leave life without experiencing some measure of loss, grief, and pain, misery is optional--as is happiness.

Beverly Campbell

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me."

We had a fun weekend. Saturday we invited our son and his family over for a bbq. Our daughter and her hubby had planned to go to friends for a bbq but instead we invited them over here. We had a good time visiting. The kids had fun playing on the hammock and playing Guitar Hero. Family and friends are the best!

I finished my quilt challenge quilt! It is definitely titled "WILD!"


I didn't have enough money to go buy backing so I used leftovers. I'm very pleased with the outcome.


After I finished longarming my friend's grandson saw the quilt. He decided he needed to have it. Sorry, Gabe.....you'll have to get grandma to make you another one! I had fun on the longarm and experimented with my quilting. I'm getting braver. One of these times I'll try some pantographs. Until then just call me free hand Sheri.

I think it turned out great...even wilder when you see it in person! make sure to give some sunglasses to the lucky person who gets to sleep with that quilt ;)

Your "make do" backing turned out to be just the right thing for this quilt. And I do love the wildness of this quilt.
