Christine and her husband Larry have a lovely home in Illinois. It has a wonderful spirit and they make me feel so at home with them.
This was a crazy busy weekend for my sister. She entertained my mother and I. She fed a visiting GA and the whole Stake Board. Twice. Larry was involved in meetings all day Saturday and Sunday and still snuck in a 50.8 mile bike ride. He's the man!
I was able to attend the luncheon on Sunday for GA (Spencer Condie) and the inner circle. It was great. I love the hearty, healthy food here. Seven, yes 7, different kinds of soups. Several different home made breads. Yummy Yummy.
Speaking of healthy food. I almost overdosed on Saturday. I think I ate 8 or maybe 10 vine fresh tomatos right out of Chris's garden. Holy smokes! I forgot what real tomatos tasted like. Like really good. Ummm nummy. The apples and peaches look amazing and I think if we can pull ourselves away from the quilt store long enough we might need to make some apple crisp or peach cobbler.
I've been working on a quilt that is made with some really adorable YW fabric. I am serious. If you have a Beehive, Mia Maid or Laurel in your family...YOU.MUST.HAVE.ONE.OF.THESE. I have to bind it so I will unveil the final show when its done. I am going to add a few photos in the middle of the creating. If I can do it so can you. It is adorable. My sister will have these kits on her site really soon. Like in a matter of days!
I got to use her long-arm. It is like a giant sewing machine and you attach the quilt like you would to quilting frames. It has an enormous sewing arm that you hold onto with two hands whole standing. It is so fun. I actually giggle while I am using it. Yes it is that fun.
I am loving the time with my mom and my sister. I love my husband so much for letting me leave for so long. I miss him. He is my man!
I'm going to cuddle up a little deeper under these lovely, snuggly quilts.
