Guess my darling hubby and I must be getting too big for our britches and needed a wakeup as to what is important in life. LOL. Last Friday we went to the gym and met with our individual personal trainers for the second week of our "going to get healthy, do it right, or bust" mantra for the new year. Now keep in mind that we have been going to the gym off and on for the past two years we've been here in Florida and all without a problem. Ray has gone more than I have due to my spinal surgery…Continue
I made rectangles with triangle roll paper :)
Everyone was so nice with my request for advice here. So I thought I'd share what I just finished with an embroidery project. I haven't embroidered in years. This is a gift for my best girlfriend; she gave me the dish as a Christmas gift one year and it inspired my idea to do some embroidery. I'm quite happy with it.

I am a co-owner of the Piece Around the World group. Last year 7 of us participated in our 1st row robin. I choose a beach theme and am just tickled pink with the rows that everyone made for me.

The patchwork is done in CT's Urban Odyssey, which goes back to 2012 at least. I hope this is a good enough picture to…Continue
Tomorrow (Saturday) I begin my trek with my BFF to Paducah for the show. It promises to have a few endless days on the bus followed by THE BIG SHOW and then a few more endless days. I 'm so excited! We will be on a bus with 35 other people who speak our language. I'll have do work on the bus (deadlines wait for nothing) but not in Paducah. And, I don't have to shop for groceries, cook, clean, etc. I hope DH will remember to bring the plants in at night so they don't freeze.
