Yup, I know you can't believe it's me can you? For right now the only things changing at the Whitehouse and on this blog are the leaves outside and the countdown to Christmas at the top of this page!
Sometimes life is busy don't you agree? I know that shouldn't be my excuse but yes things have been hectic around here. Lot's of sewing going on though, lot's of things accomplished and finished, like lots of yo yo's! Now getting ready for market has set me farther behind. I am going to go and enjoy the whole market experience, see what's new, laugh til our sides are sore, eat yummy food(a steak at the Salt Grass Steakhouse is calling my name!), shop til we drop, but most of all build memories with good freinds, new and old. The experience is just awesome.
And I know when I get back this blog will still be here waiting for me and hopefully, I said hopefully, sit down and share some things with all of you.
Thanks for understanding, love all my blog followers.
Until we meet again, happy sewing.

Total craziness all weekend. Lots of new faces in the shop for the annual Wasatch Shop Hop. The theme this year was Let's Play. Each shop was to choose a game board and run with it. Our's of course was over the moon and back. We did have lots of comments on it. It's a busy weekend but sure is alot of fun being in amongest the crazy quilt ladies!
Through out the store we had different stops on the game board. This first one is the Short Line Railroad stop. Isn't that a cute quilt representing it?
The Underground railroad was part of that display to.
The water works station was our refreshment area.
The famous Park Place all decked out in it's fancy, smancy attire.
These were our favors, the employees made 1400 yo yo's, yes I said 1400 for money clips to hold their monoply money.

I have had the honor of being a teacher at the Panguitch Quilt Walk for three years now. This event takes place the first weekend in June. I was scheduled to teach 2 classes this year but unfortunately my bag class was canceled. I went ahead and taught my Tea Party Quilt on Friday. I was demonstrating on these cute black, whites and teal fabrics. (Now completed, by the way).
And this is Ann 2.
What a fun quick get away. The love of the outdoors and sewing, life is great!

I usually don't spent alot a time on a quilt but for some reason this quilt took me foreeever to do. It's made from a jelly roll I got on my trip to PA almost 3 years ago from a booth at the AQS. It's civil war fabrics, which was a first for me and totally out of the ordinary. Anyway it's been on a couple of quilting retreats with me, St. George and back home again only to get left in the sewing bag.

On June 1st our son in law, John baptized and confirmed our sweet grand daughter Karas Rae. What a special day to look forward to when you turn 8. John gave her a beautiful blessing during the confirmation. She is a sweet little girl but has had a few challenges to face as well as her parents. When Karas about 4 she was diagonosed with Austism. They have their good days and bad days but on this day she was an angel. The events of the day went really smooth. For the most part she was cooperative and she knew this day was all about her.
The Carter Clan as Kira calls them outside the church in Santaquin.
Her blessing dress and a few mementos of her baby things.

I was asked by a cute, cute girl that I've known since she was a baby if I would make her a quilt for her sign in book (quilt) for her wedding that took place on the 7th of June. She had been searching on Pinterest and had found the perfect quilt. A chevron would be the one and she wanted it in gray, coral and white which would be the colors of her wedding. She came to the shop one afternoon and together we picked a great combination of fabrics. I used 10" squares and made half square triangles. A pretty quick quilt to put together.
