Finished Quilting

WooHoo! I jut finished the quilting on my last quilt and have now taken it off the quilting frames. Now all that is left to do is the binding. As soon as I get that done, I will post a picture of the finished product.

It has been a very busy week. We took our RV out of storage and I have been busy washing the ceiling, walls and floors in it. I have also washed all the bedding. I just have the kitchen area left to do.

This week, the weather was nicer and warmer so I decided to wash all the windows in the house and put our screens in. The blackflies are now out and we cannot open window without having screens in place.

On top of everything else, we had visitors, my brother-in-law and his wife for a couple of days. We did enjoy their visit though. We are starting to get ready to go away next weekend. Three couples in all are planning to take our RV's to Bangor, Maine for their Memorial Weekend. It should be fun - just hope for good weather.

We had a rainy day here but it is clearing now and the lake is fairly calm and very pretty.

Have a great week!

Happy Mother's Day

Just a note to wish all the Mothers out there, I want to wish you all a very Happy Mother's Day. I celebrated last weekend with DD and her hubby. Spending the weekend with them was super great. On Mother's Day, DH and I are going to celebrate again as we are taking my brother and his wife out to supper at Montana's to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary and Mother's Day for the ladies. I'm hungry already.

NASCAR racing is just about done, so I better say bye for now. Time to go to bed, as soon as the race is over.

Sorry to Have Been Away So Long

Well folks, here is one reason that I have been absent from blogging. My DH has done a beautiful job and I am very proud of him. I now have a wonderful kitchen and don't have any reason not to cook. - Good thing I love cooking.

We have also been very busy trying to get the lawn raking. We have a fairly big area for lawn and we have lots of trees around. Because of the very windy winter and spring, there were tons of broken branches on the lawn. Since we had to get those off the lawn before we could do any lawn cutting.

Last weekend, we decided to go visit my daughter and her hubby in their new location in Nova Scotia. It was an absolute wonderful weekend and it was so great seeing them again. Of course, Brie spent most of her time on grammy's lap. She is still the cutest. DH and her hubby took us all around touring their area and we even walked trails in one park. We also got to see some seals off shore - it was fun. We are looking forward to another trip there in the not too distant future. Thanks for the great weekend!

We have also been taking trips to Moncton to visit my MIL. She has settled in quite well in the Special Care Home and is as happy as can be expected. It is a beautiful home and we are happy that she could settle in there.

I have also been working on my quilt any time I had a minute. I have quilted over three quarters of it, so I should be able to finish it fairly soon. I am getting happier with this quilt now that I have quilted a fair amount of it.

Best get going as I want to watch "Survivor" which is coming on TV shortly.

Till next time!
