Tornandos, rain and sun!

Pixiedust gather people: if you post a pick of your block, PLEASE send me a link,
since I am away I am SOOO far behind on my blog reading... I don't want to miss anything. Janet and Amanda, I saw your gorgeous blocks already!


Wow. We had a Tornado come through MN Tuesday evening, right near our lake, straight across central MN. That was fun! Thankfully I was not at the cabin when that happen, and on that note, I hope my cabin is still there! I was on my way to Minneapolis to see some friends, and make a visit with Crazy Mom quilts Amanda!
(she hand delivered her pixiedust square to me! woohooo!)
She was wonderful! B and her kids played in the park for hours... It was a glorious day. It was so nice to chat quilts, ideas, likes & Dislikes... We grew up very near each other, yet we had no idea each other existed until life in blogland...

My pal Shelly of Shelly quilts, sent me this lovely not so mini, mini quilt out of many of my scraps, and hers. I LOVE her machine quilting. There are so many sweet details in this quilt, You need to look at it for hours.... Thanks lady! Love it!
It looks really good in my cabin too! woohoo!

so, I'm off for a swim. Yep, I broke down and took B to this place....
I'm not fond of them but she is so excited, I have to go get wet...
oh well ,the things we do for our kids.

  2. Glad you didn't get blown away!

    I love the quilt Shelly made. There really is a lot to look at in that little quilt. The machine quilting is wonderful.

    I'll bet B loves the water park! Looks like a lot of fun to me, too.

  3. Looks like you're having a great vacation. I love the mini quilt from Shelley!

    I haven't received my pixie dust fabrics yet. Could it be that it's taking extra long for the mail to get them to Canada?

  4. Looks fun, quilts, visiting, and a day with your daughter. Life is good.

  5. I cannot imagine what having a tornado go through must be like (although sometimes my house like like one went through!!!), we don't get them here in Australia. Isn't it wonderful the friends we meet in blogland, and even nicer when you can meet them in person. xo

  6. I LOVE waterparks! I hope you had fun and so glad you and AmandaJean had such a great visit!
