Pretty in Pink (Take 5 Pattern)

This quilt top was made during the summer, finished completely in less than a week thanks to Mary Alvarez my newest long arm machine quilter.  Got a Facebook message reminding me that if i wanted to send this quilt to Cuba with my aunt Magaly, i needed to get it to her right away.  Last Saturday i received her message, banged out the two borders and pieced the back.  Met her at Joanne's to pick out a very light weight batting (for weight purposes, for the luggage).  She did her thing, which turned out beautiful!!!  I started binding yesterday and this morning finished and added a label.  She is ready for a new and far away home.
I won the kit and pattern at our Nite Owls Quilt Guild for $5.00.  This quilt cost less than $100.00, a bargain, i say!

Wednesday Lunch & Movie

My husband (Sebastian) and I went to Eureka Burgers in Claremont for lunch and watched "Saving Mr. Banks".  It was very good, i recommend it to ALL to see and enjoy.  Now i have to watch Mary Popins!

Tuesday in the South Bay

My aunt Magaly is here from Cuba visiting for 3 months. 
 The end is near and one of the things that
needs to return with her is an electric guitar.  It is for her grandson Carlos, i bought it for him and now it's her job to get it back to Cuba in his hands nice and safe.  Here she is!!

12 x 12 Bug Display

I have decided to finish off the 12 x 12 without a border.  I sewed fabric right sides together and turned it inside out, ironed it well and top stitched.  Carolyn my friend gave me this stand that she won at a guild raffle, she will want it back as soon as she sees this display of my "Bug".
Happy Monday....
I will gather with my quilting sisters at what i call Monday Night.  It is a friendship group, i have belonged for a few years now.  It has been in existence for 20 plus.  Wonderful group of women.

A few days later...

The reason for my non posts is "Blake".  Any chance i get i travel to see him all the way to the South Bay.  Right now he's going through a bad eczema episode, his severe case only gets worse in the winter when it's dry (yes and no), they never know when.  Well, he was doing really well for almost two years and now poor guy it's really bad.   If you believe in prayer, PRAY for my grandson to be healed of this horrible skin condition.

Good Morning!  On vacation until the 13th of January.. Great news, i have so much to do here at the house also planning on visiting my little guy today and a few times next week.  You'll get to see pictures of him soon, maybe as soon as tomorrow. 
Here is my 12X12, 3 of 3 which my friendship group has started, this one is "Bugs".  Not sure if a snail is a bug, but for me it is.  A Susan Carlson method, i have 2 of her books and they are awesome.  This year we'll have a few more 12X12.  Not finished, still the binding to do.  I think I'll do an art quilt kind of binding.  Where you put it on the back and zigzag trim, you can see a Little bit of the trim or binding on the front.  So here is the almost finished product.
Have an awesome day!
