Another one that ends in a 0

So today is another Birthday for me. 
Another one that ends in a zero. 
Thank you for all the well wishes early and on the actual day.
 Where did those ten years go? 
Time to turn the page into a new chapter.
I'm going to try and slow this next 10 years down!

A Queen size finish

I don't quilt very many queen sized quilts on the Gammil. Mostly because I have just barely enough to load them on my leaders. This is one that I finished today for a friend whose son is getting married in a few weeks. It took me a while to quilt but I am happy we chose a green thread and my Popcorn panto. If I were ever to buy another Gammil .......I would go to a larger throat and next size up on the table, but then I would need a new studio to accommodate. Guess I will be happy with what I have.

This week I am in Spokane with my sisters. It was one year ago that my mom passed away. Last year at this time my DH and I were cruising the Caribbean. Flying home I found out about mom and I remember a long flight home beginning the grieving process. I turned around the next day and flew to Spokane to help take care of moms final wishes. I still have little snippets of memories every day. And I miss her so much. 

On a lighter note today is my baby's birthday. Would love to be with her to give her a birthday hug. I am looking forward to spending Thanksgiving with her.
