On Friday DH and I drove up to Columbus, Ohio to attend the NQA Show (National Quilting Association) .
I took a few photos of the quilts I liked.
The 1st two photos are of Sharon Schamber's, The Spirit of Mother Earth, which took her 2 years to quilt. The next quilt is of a Fireplace Scene which we loved. Towards the end of the photos are a few of the little quilts donated for auction.
Mark your calendars for next year ....... June 18-20, 2009

I made all the girls bikini fabric eye glasscases .... the sunglasses were so cute. The glasses were purchased at Crafts 2000 and actually had flowers hot glued across the top .... I removed the flowers. The little beads and feathers on the side of the glasses were already attached.
GS played Spring Baseball this year. He was on the Texas Roadhouse Team, playing at Worthington Field, 8 and under. In the past few days we played many double headers and last night crowned 1st Place Champions .......... yipppppeeeeeeeee

In early June I blogged about our landscape work. I'm happy to say that the new plants are doing pretty good in the rock garden.
That is all are doing well except for the transplanted hosta ..... poor things.
After Sunday Mass we attended the goodbye luncheon for Fr. Das where roasted pig was served. He is such a joy and we are so sad he is leaving after only a year with us. On the other side of the coin he nows has his own Parish. As Fr. Das is so fond of say ..... "PIG IS LIFE"
I took my famous weight watcher strawberry pie ........ all 18 slices were gone in less than 15 minutes. Yummy
GS and SIL checking our all the other desserts.
GD#2 and Fr. Das
