Well, as always, life is busy, summer is flying by and no vacation yet.  Gotta work on that!

Here a few pics of the garden, house, etc.  I love how everything comes alive this time of year!  The garden is booming with peas and lettuce right now, the rest is on the way – can’t wait!

I had to sneak a pic of my great niece in there too – she is so precious!

Happy summer!

I can’t believe it has been 3 weeks already… so much for daily happenings!
We just celebrated my daughter’s 20th birthday. Time flies when you’re having fun!
I have been busy quilting, as usual. I just completed 3 quilts for Laurie Simpson/Moda for spring market. Now to the graduation ones and that will get me out from under my deadliners! Yippee!
Here are a few more pics of quilts I have completed recently….enjoy.

I spent the day waiting for my new great niece to be born.  I present to you, Avery Jean, 7 lbs. 10 oz.

She is amazing.  God is good.  ~Kari

Sharing some family pics

I thought I would share a few family pics.  Enjoy! The first is my girls when they were a few months old, and then at senior prom.  The second is my son, in his glory, with a fish in his hands!

A dreary day in Michigan

A dreary spring day in Michigan – yucko! Thought I would share my pics of the backyard. We took out the pool on Saturday and now removing the rocks and junk to make room for a nice BIG garden!
I am spending the day quilting (not for me sadly…) and getting my taxes done. Nothing like the last minute….

Over the past couple of weeks, I have had both machines crankin!  That is a pile of 24 quilts for 4 customers – glad to be done with that pile!  There are some close-ups of them.  The string quilt is mine – it was so fun to make…wish I had more time to sew.

I can hardly beleive it has taken my 4 months to get this thing going….geez.
