Quilts & Stuff

Ok, so for the last couple of days we've been just making a bee line across (actually down) thru Georgia so that we can get to Julie's house and get hugs from the granddaughters. And the girls too. (Marcy's coming out.)

We haven't been doing any sight-seeing or hiking, just a little shopping for pecans and peaches. So I thought I'd show you a few of the quilts I finished. Yes, I brought quilts that needed the binding sewn down. Something I can do as we drive.

This first one was done on a friendship retreat at the lake.
Done! (except the label)

This is one of the twins.
The other one didn't get the binding sewn on before we left so it's still at home.
Done! (again no label yet)

I love this posy quilt. Mitzie did a great job quilting it and the pink one above.
The binding is not quite finished, but tomorrow it will be.
Almost done.

I have four more to sew down. Yeah, I brought 7 quilts to sew the binding down on. Hey, this is gonna be a long trip. Seven quilts done - wow! I can't wait. I'll post the pictures as I do them.

I bought this book at the Smoky Mountains. It's about quilters in east Tennessee.
It's not a new publication, but what I've read so far is interesting.

Made it to Florida today and will be at Julie's tomorrow. Can't wait for some family time. Plus, Marcy is flying in Thursday so it will be fun times with all my girls. And they reminded me we will all be together for mother's day. Yeah!

Here in Florida they have this little bug - the love bug. There are thousands!
And that's just on the front of the 5th-wheel.
See more about them here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lovebug

Another clue that we're in Florida. It's gator country.

Chickens at the RV park?
They followed us around and when we didn't feed them they crowed.
(Lunch for the gators?)

So tomorrow starts family time and we can't wait. We miss Julie and the little girls - yes, you too Keith. See ya tomorrow.
