The UP House in Salt Lake City

Each year Salt Lake City, Utah has their annual Parade of Homes. This year the house to see was the "Up" house. It was built after the house in the movie, Up. If you remember the movie, you know that not too many rooms were shown in the movie so the builders took liberty and built the house as they thought it might look when Carl and his bride, Ella lived there.

Plans are to sell the home. There are at least 6 very interested parties that may want to buy it. The builders also have permission to keep the color on the house and do not have to change it. I hope other builders follow suit and have at least a few more homes in the neighborhood that are painted bright colors. Disney bought the floorplan plan from the builders so there will not be another house build like this one....unless Disney is involved! How fun to have your own one-of-a-kind house!

I think the pictures are pretty self-explanitory. Loved the kitchen appliances!

4 bedrooms and 4 baths with 2761 square feet for $399,900.

Quilts are back!

Picked these quilts up from the quilter a few days ago. I am very pleased with the quilting. Middle child's two quilts were done edge to edge. She let the quilter choose the pattern and they look great.


I had mine custom quilted.

This is Annaly's new quilt from grammie.

Love the tight quilting. Lots of flowers, snails and ladybugs quilted onto the quilt. Hope baby likes it!

She's here!

Annaly was born last Monday, August 1. A whole 5 pounds 8 ounces! She came so fast that her blood sugar dropped but after an iv she was fine and came home the next day with her mommy. We are so happy she is here!
This is what Annaly is laying mom's doll carriage. My mom was born in 1916 so the carriage is coming up on that 100 year mark that is used to be considered a real antique. I love that we were able to get a few pictures of baby with it.

I think I caught up!

It is kind of addicting to make all of these bow-tie blocks! This is certainly going to be a wild quilt but I am enjoying the whole process of cutting and sewing them together. Still have more to make then I will figure out how to put it all together. I am actually thinking about making another one in a more subdued color scheme. Just need time to cut and organize them so that when I have a few minutes I could whip a few up. I love how the bow-ties are like a log cabin block and you have many choices to choose from as to how you want to make your quilt. Or maybe I don't like is going to be hard to decide!

Baby has still not made her appearance yet. Mommy is dialated to a 5 as of today's appointment. Doctor said that if she had been at 6, he would have sent her to the hospital. Shucks. I am hoping baby is here before our oldest son, dil and grandchild visit in a couple of days!
