Here we are with Farther Tom our priest... I try to get a family shot with him every special occasion ;) Of course I'm talking b/c the person taking the photo had no clue how to point and shoot.... just hold the button down already! LOL and stinker Paul Thomas turned his head too quickly.... wish we had a family shot that showed his adorable tie and vest he had on. He was too TOOT. ;)
I jsut don't have very many photos from today.. shortly after we loaded up in the car it came a HUGE POUR DOWN and continued for about 3 hours. But I did get this one of my two handsome guys!! David did remove his sunglasses... but in those Paul Thomas wasn't looking.. sho heres the best of them.

It's on it's way to carol aka "needlecrazy" from the HGTV boards. She organized a Ike Relief fundraiser and quilting project just after hurricane Ike. I forget how much money she raised something over $2,000 I think - anyway I donated $100 which allows me to have two quilts done on the long arm :) and at the same time make a donation to The hurricane Ike Relief project.
Oh and David has been gone all week to Dallas for work. We sure have missed him -tonight he missed something pretty special. For the first time the twins were kissing each other good night. And after I put Paul Thomas in his bed, Olivia stood up and was yelling "BYEEEE" and waving at him.... as if he was leaving her. His bed is all of 2 feet from hers. ;) LOL I love that they love each other.yes, she kicked her rail out of the bed about a month ago - and has only once had a problem... she was screaming bloody murder one morning and I went in to find her feet on the floor and her head still stuck in the bed. She wasn't hurt.. but it scared her enough she doesn't dare do it again. However PT's head is smaller than hers, b/c he can easily stick his head all the way in and out..... for now... LOL
Well I will be having a big birthday this July but I'll be turning 35 this year.....I've already been there and done that with the turning thirty thing... the year I had Nora.
However this post does have something to do with 30, and a birthday...
my friend Quiltaholic (on the HGTV boards) is hosting a Birthday FQ Give-away in honor of her daughters 30th birthday... and she's giving away THIRTY Fat Quarters!!!! Isn't that nice? Well what are you waiting for.. click on over to her new blog PigTale & Quilts and sign up to win! ;)

The lowest price I was found for the Triangulations CD program was at Connecting Threads for $22.99 however when my order arrived i noticed on the invoice it rang up cheaper! $16.77 + 3.29 shipping = a total of $20.06 whoo hoo!
I first noticed this website - which price was way too high but had helpful downloads. Take a look here at this link - their price is $49.95 **eek** but scroll down and you'll see the free to download and save PDF files for the sample grid for 1 5/8" finished size.. and also the How does the disk work download.
Those who love them, really love them and now I'm one of them :) How about you?
Edited to add: I was curious about tearing off the paper, but it was so simple! Just ripped perfectly in the right spots = easier than tearing out perforated coupons! Really! :)
PS- Again, thanks Crazy'boutquilts for buying the packet of Foundation Papers for me that I posted about on 3/13/09!!

Or maybe you have made one???...or if you are like me... you WANT to make one :)
Well in a few weeks I'm going on my very first quilt retreat and as our group project we will all be making this bag. I hear it has TEN pockets inside!! Whoo hoo! :c)
Oh and I got my machine back form the Bernina shop today. I'm excited to have it back so soon... but I am not excited that it cost me an arm and leg... just over $300!! aak! Apparently it had to have a new "S Board" put in it. They assure me it's as good as new. It better be!
I haven't used it yet.. this weekend is my husband's birthday and for his gift I cleaned out EVERYTHING that had to do with sewing out of the dining room! We will be eating in there tomorrow evening and he will love that ;) Nora is excited about decorating...I'll try and remember to take a few photos.
Happy Weekend everyone!
