Quilting and a Quilting

Our anniversary party on Friday night was so much fun. The food was spectacular, I grilled a filet mignon roast from Costco and it was delicious. I also made those make ahead mashed potatoes. Jill made a wonderful salad and Jeane's contribution was a homemade maple nut cake and ice cream. YUM! Jill and Terry, Jeane and Steve are such wonderful, fun friends and we always enjoy their company.

Saturday I finished a little quilt for Tammy and Mike worked out in the garage. Emmi slept, she got so much attention Friday night, she was a pooped puppy. In the evening we went up the Boulder to the home of friends John and Peg. Denny and Ellen, Mark and Gemma were also there--it was a great evening. Peg wouldn't let any of us bring anything and the food was delicious. John cooked those filet mignon roasts on the grill and the meat was perfect! I need the recipe for Peg's apple cake and sauce, too. I think I gained 5 pounds this weekend.

Emmi stayed home alone last night for the first time--she had the run of the kitchen/living area and she was so good--very glad to see Mom and Dad when we got home.

I've been making that quilt machine hum today. I was on a mission--LoraLee, our daughter-in-law had a quilt she wanted to give to a friend at a party on October 23, Friday. This friend is 40 years old and gravely ill--I wanted to get the quilt done so LoraLee had plenty of time to put the binding on and I did it! LoraLee chose a really soft fabric for the backing called minky and getting the tension adjusted caused a bit of &*%#@ to occur but once I got the tension worked out it was smooth sailing.

Michael spent the day working on friend Steve's truck--and I use the work "truck" loosely! It is a 1941 Chevrolet pickup shell with not one other part, no engine, no seats, no transmission, no nothing. Michael is getting the process started for Steve by putting in the engine.

The deer are very plentiful right now but come hunting season they all disappear!


  1. Noticed we have matching temperatures on our 'Weather Bugs' this morning:))

  2. I am a little behind time, but Happy Anniversary. Sounds like you celebrated in good company with good food.

    I love the mountains with the snow on them. Stay warm and hugs to Emmi.

  3. Happy Anniversary! We wish you many, many years of happiness together. It sounds like you had a wonderful celebration!

    Hugs to you all,
