Fabric Tuesday, and Uncle Dean update...

Megan and I wanted to say thank you for all the kind comment's and votes you all helped us out with for our Uncle Dean last week. This is his family on Father's Day. They woke him up to tell him he WON! He gets to be in the Kona Ironman!!! HAPPINESS! THANK YOU over and over again!

Photo: We woke our Dad up this morning SCREAMING... Literally.

BEST FATHERS DAY PRESENT EVER!!!

He WON!!!! He won he won he won he won!!!!!!

Thank you so much everyone for every vote every share every comment. Everything. HE WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




On to my crafting life. Busy week here. Summer is in full swing. Camps, family gatherings, birthday's...just been crazy busy around here!  Also, over the weekend it was cool, like 70's. I knew I had to get out and work on a dresser that has been in my garage for over 6 months. Here is my instagram pic...I will show you the finish soon...


Also my brain can't even remember if I showed these pillows yet, for my niece who moved back with her family....(we miss her)


Isn't she darling?


Also made this paper pieced Union Jack pillow for my Sister's birthday last week. If you follow on Instagram, you have seen the finish. If not, I will post it later this week with nicer pics from my camera. 


Here are some of the wonderful things you all have been up too...


That looks like it needs stitches mod GeoCruiser...just epic!

As a runner, and as someone who lost a parent to cancer, his story hit home. GO, DEAN, GO!

Now, who is going to make a swim bike run quilt for him?

Love the featured quilts today.
