I am in Kerrville, TX visiting daughter and family for a few days. For those of you who don't know about TX, Kerrville is in the part of TX we refer to as the hill country. It is 65 miles NW of San Antonio. They live on the Guadulupe river and it is very picturesque down here. No tall trees, just mesquite trees, hills and beautiful scenery.

While I was here I had to do some repair on a quilt I had made for them a few years ago. Thought I would take the opportunity to post it here for those of you who have never seen it. They are into Southwest decor and of course live in the perfect spot for that. This quilt is kingsize and we have a kingsize SIL to hold it up. 6'5" SIL's do come in handy.

Daughter, Tammy, has a birthday in a few weeks, can't tell you how old but it is a big one. Hard to believe my baby is going to be that old. I had bought her a little what they call farm table and chairs for their breakfast eating area so she and I sat in the floor yesterday and put them together. Of course GS was excited when he got to use the rubber hammer to put the plugs in the holes.

I am headed home in the morning and they are taking off for a camping trip. Packing the camper as we speak. 7 year old GS is running around acting crazy due to the excitement of getting ready to go camping. SIL is smoking ribs and brisket for dinner tonight and boy do they smell good.

I always loved that quilt. Still have my patterns tucked away . . . but have been good about not starting anything new.

I didn't realize that you made this pattern, it is gorgeous! I bought all of those patterns also along with fabric. On my to do list someday.
Have a safe trip home!
