Family, Friends, & Fun














































I had a great weekend! It started with Saturday morning going to Panera Bread for breakfast and then to our favorite quilt store with My "Sweet Mom" and my "sweet sister," Karen. We had so much fun. My mom bought me a few things for an early birthday gift. I am working on a Christmas quilt of cottages for next year so she bought me some Christmas fat quarters! I am excited but have got to finish a few more projects before working anymore on that one. I was so proud that my sister came with us. We had so much fun. We also went to Hancocks.You can see more pictures over at my Mom's Blog! I came home and worked on my quilt that I am doing with Amanda Jean's Quilt along! I have it all put together and basted with pins. I rolled it and it is ready to machine quilt. I am actually doing 2 quilt alongs with her but I am trying to get one finished before I move on the star quilt. Then Sunday came,we went to church, and my very good friend Krista and her family were in town. We ate lunch with them at Carabba's and had the best time. We have been friends for a long time and have become even closer through blogging. Krista and her husband are very special people. They were the youth directors for our church here in Dalton for many years. Now they live in Claxton Tenn. and work with the youth group there. They have 2 teenage children. I still look at them and see little children, but they are young adults. There are just some people who are gifted in certain areas and Krista & Charlie are two of these people They have dedicated their lives to bring young people to know the Lord. I knew that Krista and Charlie were younger than us, but I just realized yesterday that I could be their mother!!! I am really enjoying our friendship and always have. We learn from each other & have a lot of fun together. It was a fun weekend with family and friends.

How great that you got to be with Krista and her family! I know you had a great time! And WE had a great time together Saturday with Karen. I looked at your picture with Karen, and saw such a resemblance to each other, that I had not normally noticed....strange, isn't it, since I am the mother of both of you! LOL.

I can't wait to see the quilt all quilted.

I enjoyed our lunch together so much! I wish we could get together more often. Charlie looks so funny in that picture. I guess he just wasn't paying attention. Your quilt is beautiful.
