Omgosh.... NO SPOILER ALLERT but......I’m going to have a picnic with a very special friend. Hoping everyone who gets a @sewsamplerbox will join me. I absolutely love every box but honestly πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– Kimberly and her staff out did themselves on this one. πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’. @fatquartershop #sewsamplerbox


My hubby is recovering from two broken ribs and can’t ride our horses. I took him to West World in Scottsdale so he could attend the Equestrian show. I went shopping. I finally went to a Quilt shop, in Mesa that has been there for years, to check it out. Quilters Oasis is wonderful. I wasn’t disappointed. Lots of @modafabrics too. I met their EPP teacher. Showed her my pictures of @brimfieldawakening quilts. She fell in love just like I did. For those living in the area, she may be having a class real soon πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

I just had to post this. Amanda was our Natural Horse Hoof Trimmer when she lost her beloved, firefighter, husband Eric along with 18 members of his team. Eric was superintendent of Granite Mountain Interagency Hotshot crew. We all pray that no firefighter or their family members would need to use this fabulous foundation. πŸ’ž


Happy mail. Thank you Laurie @minickandsimpson I can’t wait to start. #showmethemoda #modafabrics

I’m loving my Brimfield Awakening quilt. I added sashing because I wanted it bigger without adding more blocks. βšͺ️

The boys came looking for the girls. Swipe to see a few of them. There were at least 6 males that we could see out in the open. Not sure how many were around back where all the girls were hiding. Nature is so beautiful. Remembering to thank God every day. πŸ’



Do I want fancy center or not. Swipe to see close ups. #BrimfieldBlock #BrimfieldblockSal #BrimfieldAwakening #modafabrics #3sisters @paperpiecesepp


I so agree with my sister Cheryl @cae3540 that I had to post what she said. Swipe to see this fabulous book. πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’ I could have just reposted it but I couldn’t get repost to work. I’m sure it was OE. 😁 @martingaletpp @yardgrl60

Type A people often make Finance - and life - a lot harder than it needs to be. In my new book, I present a better approach to personal finance. The Type B Financial Plan, characterized by simple strategies and lower stress levels, is a more relaxed approach to personal finance.

You know all those fabulous little tags on all your favorite Moda fabric collections, make Quilt blocks. Copy them on to fabric and make a quilt block to save your favorite ones from the collection. πŸ’–

Everyone got stickers placed on them by this 2year old and every page in the coloring book also got a sticker. She was so proud of her work. πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’ all the adults loved every minute.


Granddaughter and great granddaughter coloring in books that are about 24 years old. Coloring books now have two generations using them. Making fabulous memories. πŸ’–πŸ’– We thank God everyday for our Blessings.
