My aunt Christine Bertrand Cooper has been diagnosed with emphysema so at my retreat I worked on a signature prayer quilt for her. I used a old pack of charms called Wuthering Heights and used Paula Stoddard's book, "Hooked on Charms 2" I love her little books and I love making things with charms. They really go together fast. Please remember Christine in your prayers.

Completed this quilt for a baby shower gift. Jennifer Guillory Hardy is having a baby boy and she is naming her baby after her daddy who is now deceased. Her dad Mike was our best man in our wedding and he passed away when Jennifer was just a little girl. He was a great guy. I used Evelyn Sloppy's book, "Sew One and You're Done." This is the 2nd time I used this book and I really like how fast the quilts came together.
Pictures are from our quilt retreat. What fun it was to just sit and sew from Thursday until Sunday! It was at the Catholic Retreat Center in Moss Bluff, LA. All our meals was prepared for us and all we had to do was sew. There are a couple of pictures of quilts completed. I wish I had a picture of all the quilts being worked on.

This is the cake I made for the 4th of July celebration that we had at my aunts (Gail Wofford). I got it off the internet at http://thepioneerwoman.com. I put blueberries from our blueberry bushes. It is called, "The Strawberry Shortcake Cake". Everyone loved it so give it a try. She has some great recipes.
