I recently picked up some quilts from my fabulous machine quilter, Diane. (Two of the three are pictured here.) She does such beautiful work! I have not yet put on the bindings. I was about to start, but then went out of town to see my mom for Mother's Day.

I had a nice visit with mom, my sister and nieces and the entourage. Then on Sunday night my daughter and faux SIL took Charles and me out for dinner. And after that, son gave me a call to wish me Happy Mother's Day. So I got to talk to and/or see everyone I wanted to talk to or see for Mother's Day. Super!

graduation gift for my nephew - only two years late! Bet he either forgot it's coming, or he thinks I forgot

The new job I'm doing is really exhausting! I haven't had much energy when I get home in the evenings. Who knew that just sitting all day long could be so exhausting? These quilts will remain unbound until I catch up on my energy. (Soon, I hope!)

Prayers for little Emmy (3 yrs old) who had major surgery today! So far, so good. We're keeping close watch on her Caring Bridge reports.

It's so fun receiving the tops back and quilted into quilts. I love that part--and your quilter, Diane does great work. Of course her pallet, your tops are wonderful!

Lovely quilts! Glad your Mother's Day weekend was full of love.

The learning curve should ease up soon--hope you'll gain back some energy!

Thanks for putting prayers for Emmy on here. I'm fully confident that all the prayers said for her, us and her caregivers helped to bring us home early!
