A nearby quilt shop offers a chance to get some brush ups on embroidery skills once a month. $15 for the entire year, can you believe it. I've been working on some small projects while I'm there. This is my latest. It will be a birthday gift for my SIL.…Continue
I was taking my turn sitting beside my sister holding her. I fell asleep holding her hand and I was given this picture yesterday at the funeral. The next day she drew her last labored breath. The funeral was a celebration with my cousin reading several memories of her. There was some funny stories which depicted her to a T. She will be missed.…Continue
Ever since I finished my UFO Valentine quilt a couple of weeks ago, I've lost inspiration to move on to other projects or even start new ones. Am I just making excuses, am I burned out, is it too hot to work? Maybe my brain needs a rest? Just at a loss right now and some of the things I have put in my lineup have deadlines.

Yes I said it and I have it. It's been three months sense I've touched my fabrics or even been to a fabric store of any kind.

The happy part of that is whatever your assignment was, there was not any bickering (unless you talk to yourself). We had a wonderful time! But, I'm glad it is done…Continue
Hello Been awhile…we have been having a great summer at the lake. Hot and dry…not good for the farmers. Been working on some UFOs. Want to finish a few before hunting for more! This one is a nice size for the campfires in the Fall. Nothing fancy, just cozy. Our family is getting a new little member for the grandsons!! Luckily, it will live with them. They have to pick between the two female standard poodles. They came up from Texas. The handler said they are the best two she has ever worked…Continue
Today at 3:45 p.m my sister passed away with her family and caregivers at her bedside. She has struggled with this disease since 2009. The past few weeks has been a really hard time for her. She had to gasp for air. Will miss her dearly.
