So Much Has Happened *With Photos*

I don't know where to start. The last 2 weeks are a blure. See if I can remember parts of it. I do have photos.

First my friend Kim's son is at Stanford. Josh has Cystic Fibrosis and his lungs were down to 12% and with that his Oxygen and CO2 levels were completely crazy. A week ago Josh was put on the double lung transplant list. He is number one. Last Friday was his birthday and he turn 26. If you live in the Stockton area Chili's in Stockton is helping with a fundraiser for Josh. All you have to do is print the flyer and go eat at Chili's on Feb 1st. Everyone that eats their and turns in a flyer 10% will go to helping Josh and his wife. Go visit I Support Joshua Mompean on facebook. You can print the flyer here.

I had a fun photo session with Heather of Moomp Photography. I am waiting for her to give me the okay to promote her latest thing. Just wait you'll love it! Speaking of Moomp spring is coming have you have a family photo done recently, like in the last decade? Call Heather make an appointment. Grab you spouse, kids and grandkids (she'll do your pets too) and head out to meet Heather. You will have the best time with your family and be a head of the game for Christmas photos! Yes I know it is January and I am talking Christmas photos but really come fall you'll be lucky to get a session with her.

I got Delaney's Garden Party Dress done. Delaney has a mini session with Heather tomorrow, I am doing photo invitations for her birthday. Now to start the party favor bags. I have also eliminated a UFO. I decided that I was never going to make the quilt. It was a sample for a class I was going to teach that didn't come about. I had 5 1/2 blocks made. I finished the last block and disbursed the remaining fabric into my stash. I put 2 blocks into my new endeavor for the quilt guild and with the other 4 I made placemats. I found Vicki's wonderful Orphan Block Placemat Tutorial over at 3 Creative Studios. I have also made a Halloween quilt top out of the 9 patches from the swap I did last fall. I cut them in half and made a Disappearing 9 Patch. I love it. The bonus is JoAnn's had Halloween fabric on sale 60% off. I was able to get the borders and backing for $2.79 a yard!!!

These are the four placemats I made.

Right now I am still finishing my Calendar Men quilt. I am hoping to have that done this week. I am working on finishing up my January row for my row quilt. Also I got the sneak peak for Febuary's Block Lotto. I love it so much! I already have one done. I am hoping to be able to get a few more before the first too.

And last for all of you who say you want to see my girls.

You have been busy. Why don't you print out some of the flyers and bring them to the Manteca Quilter's meeting and maybe can get some members to join in this effort. How is your friend's son doing; CF is serious stuff. You really have been busy; looking forward to seeing all these projects. How did you find out what the Feb block was?
