Whoop, Whoop Friday!!

Whoop, Whoop Friday!!

It's a beautiful, sunny but cool day here in T-Town.  I had a meeting in mid-town this morning so I stopped by Whole Foods to indulge in all the beauty it has to offer. This sign just made me happy as I was walking inside.  So glad it it spring!!


  I have had a fabulous week hanging out with my friend Mary and working on our cookbook.  I also finished my Mother's Christmas quilt for her.
My Momma is 85 years old and is an active quilter and rug maker (braided).  I hope I follow her footsteps and am still sewing and quilting when I am her age.
Here is the Christmas Quilt she made for herself.  She loves stars.  I love the way she used different background colors around the stars.  It give the quilt depth.

I am also working on quilting another of my momma's quilt tops.

It is great to have all these "extra" tops to practice on with my Tin Lizzie.  I am going to put feathers in the borders.  Practice, practice, practice.  I am linking up today with Sarah at Confession's of a Fabric Addict for Whoop, Whoop Friday, Crazy Mom Quilts , and Richard and Tanya Quilts for Link a Finish Friday.  Hop over and see all the creativity going on at these sites.

Tomorrow is the Color Run here in T-Town.  I am running in a group of "Mixed Ages".  Actually I will be doing more speed walking than running.  My left foot is still swelling.  I had surgery over a year ago for a torn tendon plus two previous stress fractures in that foot from running.  Do you think it is trying to tell me something????  I am listening more than I did when I was walking it may be tomorrow but we are going to have a BLAST!!!  Stay Tuned for fabulous pictures....I want to be "Rainbow" colored from head to toe!!

Happy Trails,

Mtn Mama
