Why we almost missed Angels Birthday

Kirby: Mom and Dad went to the quilt show on Saturday. It was not very big, but they stayed all day. Mom bought 4 cups of Espresso and she does not even drink it!


Angel: They are really little quilt kits. Halloween Ornaments. Mom made them on Sunday. She said they were quick and fun.

A ghost and of course a black cat.


A bat and a witch. The witch had bat buttons for eyes and Mom did not like that. She laid the purple buttons on the face, but plans to get black ones.

Kirby: The Granddaughter Bean entered a quilt in the show. They had a category for under 17. She made the quilt in a class at the local Bernina shop. She was 14 when she made it.

For privacy, mom marked out her name and the cities.

Angel: Look, she got a ribbon. Mom said all of the kids got an honorable mention, except the first and second place winners and they got other ribbons.
The wife of one of Dads friends entered a quilt, too. Dad took a picture of it.


It's called Let's make Roses.

Kirby: This was Dad's favorite quilt.


Cross Roads of Texas. Dad had the camera and that is all the pictures he took. Mom and the Grand Daughter were looking at quilts and discussing boring things like Math, triangles, stripping, squares, you know, quilt stuff.


Mom: Several people wanted top know about the sewing machine that Kirby was displaying. It is a Bernina 200. I have had it several years. It does all kinds of fancy stitches and embroidery.
I made the lovies on it even the embroidered faces.


Angel: Mom, it is time to get back to the Monkey quilt!

Those are pretty quilts and cute Halloween ones. I can't sew at all so quilting is something I could never do, but I like to look at them!

Really awesome quilts! I think your Mom has a pretty good excuse, Angel.

Lighting: Well I have never seen small little quilts that come out of little expresso cups. When those cups come home from when Anna and the oldest male see calls "daddy" bring those home all they have is nasty coffee in them.
