Shelley's Cat Quilt

I was recently a vendor at a local quilt show. One of my customers stopped buy and told me about making one of our Wacky Devine Nine kits from the previous year. She promised to send a picture of her finished quilt. Here's the note I received.

Robin, Attached here is my color flow Wacky Devine Nine (Shelley'sCatQuilt). I scanned the border fabric and then brought the saturation down to about 15% and printed the label over it. Then I used the actual fabric for the border of the label. The red/orange around the label is the backing. I enjoyed making my first kit in 2007 but this one was even more fun. These colors are so bright that they were a delight to play with.I was pleased to see you at the Hemet show; our bus group had a fine time. There was snow on the ground before we got up to the Cajon Pass about 5:30.

Thank you Nancy for allowing me to share you wonderful quilt.

Emily and Me

Here's a picture of Emily and me after we finished our race on Saturday. Emily ran the race in almost exactly half the time I walked it in. I figure I'm 4 times older than her but she finished just 2 times faster than me so I guess it's not all bad. I really don't think I can walk any faster so I'm going to try to start running part of the 5K. I've already been doing a little running mixed in with my walking but today I purchased "real" running shoes so watch out.

Aren't they pretty. Now if they can just make be run.

Group Quilt

My friendship group "The Wednesday Wacko's" are planning on entering a group quilt in our guilds upcoming quilt show. We've decided to use this pattern as our inspiration. The original pattern is called Steppin' Out by Alley Cat Tales. Isn't it cute? Our quilt is going to look very different. Each of us have personalized our block so that it represents us.

As everyone that knows me knows, I wear flip flops almost year round. If it's really cold or rainy I break down and wear Croc's or clogs of some kind, but I love my flip flops. I could figure out how to make flip flops but struggled with how to get feet in them. I finally arrived at this solution. So here's my block, my feet and my flip flops. Oh and by the way I wear jeans all the time unless it's warm enough for shorts but I would have had to show my knobby knees if my block wore shorts.

I'll post a picture of all the blocks one the quilt is put together.

My first 5K walk

My goal is to actually run a 5K. Today I took my first step towards that goal, I walked a 5K at the Race on the Base in Los Alamitos, CA. I didn't embarrass myself and finished with a fairly decent time for walking. Here is my number that I wore. My daughter Shelli took a few pictures that I will get from her tomorrow and post.

My granddaughter, Emily also took part in the race, She's 15 and a cross country runner so she ran the 5K and finished 4th in her age bracket. Not bad since she hasn't been training lately, she's been playing on her High School soccer team as the Keeper (Goalie) which doesn't require much running.
OK, it's time to get back to quilting.
