This is my latest creation!!

My friend, Julie Matheson asked if I would
make her a quilt out of her childhood
clothes which her mother had saved for her!!
I was really excited because the fabrics were
so pretty. I hated cutting them up into tiny
squares but the finished project was well worth it.

:)I didn't realize that this picture was sideways
until after I blogged it!! :)

Eventhough I would have loved to be able to
machine quilt it for her, we decided to go with the professional
(who actually owns a quilting machine)
Here is the close up of the flowery/leafy design
that Julie choose.

New Pics!!!

Matthew sent us some more pictures this week!!!
Here he is with the Elders in his District.
His companion, Elder Hernandez O., is the taller one in the back.
There are so many Elder Hernandez's that they add
the letter to their last name so they can tell them apart.
Matthew is doing really great and loving
his mission.

Matthew was really excited for this brother
to get baptized. He also received the priesthood
the following Sunday.

Matthew had a scuffle with a dog a few weeks ago.
But luckily he only received a scratch.
I think he was more upset about his pants
than about the bite!!
One of the sisters in the Ward fixed
these pants for him!! I was surprised, they look
beyond help!!!

I am grateful there are such nice people
looking out for my son.
Someone was even thoughtful enough to make
him banana bread.

And if you were wondering what that shape is on the top??
It's Pooh Bear!!!

Time Out!!!

Here is our group of women at the Houston
"Time out for Women" conference this last weekend!!!
We had such a great time, getting to know each other,
seeing friends we haven't seen in ages and
of course listening to the great speakers
that come to enrich our lives.

Just some of our favorites were author and CEO, Sherry Dew,
impressive singer and song writer, Jenny Jordan Frogley,
funny and talented, author, Mary Ellen Edwards and
another favorite singer and song writer, Kenneth Cope.

You can tell from our attire that it was kind of cold and rainy
but we didn't let that dampen our spirits as we listened,
took notes, laughed, purchased some of their
products and had a wonderful "Time out"

On our way home we had to stop at one of my favorite
Texas barbecue spots, "Rudys" and brought home
some of their brisket, pork and sausage for our guys at home!!!
(And of course some of their fantastic sauce!!!)

We can't wait until next year!!!
