It’s been almost a month since I last wrote. And what a busy month it’s been. My Mom came to visit on March 31 and is staying through June. It has been quite an adjustment as she had a stroke several years ago and is in a wheelchair. But we are adjusting and are enjoying the visit. Some days are quite interesting as we have had four generations in the house at the same time. The oldest (Mom-87) and the youngest (Owen-15 months) are quite taken with each other, and it is fun to watch them.

I have been digitizing some designs which I’ll show you soon. The new Sunbonnet Sue set is just exquisite. There are 12 designs to be quilted in the hoop.  And there are some other fun designs. Here’s a peek at Sunbonnet Sue. I still have to do the file conversions before they’re up in the shop.

Beautiful QOV Photos

I got an email from Maggie yesterday showing me the Quilt of Valor she made using the star machine embroidery Quilt as you Go. This is absolutely beautiful. The recipient of this quilt will be very honored to receive it. She also showed how she supported the weight of the quilt as she worked putting the rows together. This is truly a work of love and dedication.
