Monday Morning Star Count

Happy Monday!
This past week, I managed to sew my 42 hexies together.

And I have 21 flowers to add to my "Rose Garden" quilt. This is an old picture of my "Rose Garden" quilt.

I plan on piecing the back of "Rose Garden" so I put this piece together.

My "Rose Garden"quilt has been in storage since October and I am thinking it is time to go rescue her.
I am linking up with Jessica over at "Life Under Quilts" for Monday Morning Star Count.

42 Hexies

Last week I basted 42 one inch hexies from a Avalon by Joanna Figueroa, Fig Tree & Co,
for Moda Mini charm pack. I started sewing them together, not really sure where I was going with them.....

My daughter asked me for a mug rug for her I guess a mug rug it is.

I am linking up with Jessica over at Life under Quilts. (which I have wanted to do since she started her Monday Morning Star only took me 5 weeks...LOL!)

On Saturday,  I had the chance to attend the ELIQG (Eastern Long Island Quilt Guild) Quilt Show at Suffolk County Community College in Riverhead, NY. There were 700 quilts in this show. I want to share pictures of some of the quilts with you. These pictures were taken with my phone since I forgot my camera, so please excuse the quality of the pictures. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
This quilt was my favorite. It is made out of ties. I don't know the name of this quilt for some reason I cut off the information card but I will try to find out and update this post.

Today I am grateful for my son, Jorge.

As he was leaving for school this morning, he asked "Mom, is there anything I can do for you?" Sweet! <3

He is taking the SAT's on May 4th and they now require that you send a picture when you register to take the test, so this is the picture we sent.

Dunkin Donuts vs Starbucks

While driving to work this morning, the big debate I was having with myself was whether to stop at Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks.  The decision of where I was going to stop did have a lot to do with the locations of the Dunkin Donuts and the Starbucks. I find that I do a lot of my thinking while I am driving alone. 
Dunkin Donuts won! 

I am grateful for my morning tea!
