We are getting closer to two things - 1.) one of the Quilts of Valor that the kids have been working on so hard will be going to MQX ( machine quilters expo) in New Hampshire next week. The kids voted on it and we decided that we should have a picture of all the kids accompany it! and 2.) Delivery of 18 quilts to Fort Carson - I am so excited - 18!! thats 2 times as many as last year. Of course my quilt guild has helped, and the 2nd graders got involved !! I'm happy ( and worn out from all the machine quilting LOL )
I also have some more Mystery quilts from my Guild to show you. I love the combo Red White and Blue - and its variances - like Maroon Blue and Tan - These look awesome!! This one was made by Betty Q - and she gave it to me all quilted!!!
This one was made by Cheryl P.
And last but not least - the last quilt that came from the guild for our trip to Fort Carson was made by Rosalie. I love how each one turned out and I think a soldier will be glad to get them.
And on the home front - yesterday when we went to go to school there was a new cat at the house. He was somewhat nervous, but a pretty sleek looking kitty - maybe had been previously very loved. But yesterday he was VERY hungry - so I showed him where I fed my cat, and where the water was for my cat and he seemed to be just fine. My cat is a white barn cat, he is nice but he doesn't like to be hugged much, and loves to chase mice - so we LOVE him.
Anyways this new cat - the boys named him Garfield 2 , ate up and dissappeared - so I thought maybe he was just lost - and then this morning there he was again. On the deck, ready to come IN the house - I don't have house animals - they make me sneeze. He seems a lot more comfy around our place today. I think someone drove out to the country and dropped him off - and he found our place, and now that he is full and can find water - I think he thinks this is his new home. Fine with me - he seems very nice. But he wasn;t too sure what to think of those huge horses that came in from the pasture. It was kind of funny watching Garfield2's face as he looked up at those HUGE horses - I think it was a mix of fear and amazement :-)
So now our cat population has increased to 2 cats - hope he is a good mouser too - or maybe Whitey can teach him ;-)
