Sounds like Mike has his head on (somewhat) straight - LOL! I say "somewhat" as we all know how teenagers know it all, right?

Comment by Barbara S/IL on Saturday

Ally those quilts are great. They're going to love them.

I hear you about 'no', but my problem is the tempting new quilt designs. 

Good for Mike. It sounds like he's quite motivated.

Comment by Janet/MO on Saturday

After wavering back & forth a lot, I decided not to go back to work this winter.  While the extra money always comes in handy, the job was boring and hard on me physically.  I have nerve damage in my right leg from the back surgery I had 27 yrs ago and standing as much as I had to for that job was very painful at times.  My grandson Mike is now working at the casino in both valet and coat check.  He told me the other day he now understands why I said a trained monkey could do the coat ck job.  <grin>  He loves working in valet though.  He will be through with high school at the end of next week so I hope they give him more hrs at work.  He is in a special program where the kids work at their own pace so he is finishing 6 months early.  He had the option of getting his diploma right then or waiting & walking across the stage with the rest of his class so I think he is going to wait.  He is the same age as my granddaughters who graduated in June, but because his birthday is not until Oct 2nd, he was a year behind them in school. 

Sheila, you are right about how most women put themselves on the back burner.  I too am trying to get better at saying no. 

I was hoping to have the sashing strips on my red/white quilt finished yesterday, but they are taking longer to do than I originally thought they would.  Maybe today.  I still haven't decided what I want to do on the hsts in the border.  My little group is getting together next Wed so I want it done so I can show it off to everyone.

Ladies, I've learned over the years that it's a very important word to "know" and I've been using it more & more as time goes on. One thing that I've found to be exceedingly true is that we, as women, have been very lax in taking care of ourselves. The importance of the word "NO" has started to become more of a focus in my life; because, if it doesn't make me feel good to take on something, then it's not going to be something I'll give 100% to. Nor would it be something that would help me to pursue making myself a better person. Try saying it for the little things and you'll find yourself stepping up to say it more & more on the larger things. Stepping off my soapbox now.

Going to work on some more Sweet Pea designs today. Hope to get 2 more table toppers done. C U Later!

Ally - The boys will LOVE those quilts! They are great!

The word "NO" ... I've been given several "pep talks" on using that word. I think those talks have fallen on deaf ears. It's a very hard word for me to say, evidently.

Great quilts, Ally! 

Janet, you seem to be too motivated. I'm exhausted following how much you're getting done.

How fun Diana! 

Comment by Ally Bryant on Friday

Janet are you working this winter at your job or have you decided to not? I like you want to finish some of the blocks into quilts that I have had on swaps, thus winter. No travels for us this winter so might as well get some UFO  put together.

diana like you and Janet belong to a group of quilters we sew every Tues at the over 50 club. We go out for our Christmas dinner on Tues.then back to the one of the gals house for dessert and coffee.

You'll have to show us your Red and White quilt when it is finished, Janet.

Shelia and Barbara I know what the NO word is like to get out of my mouth.!!!

Comment by Janet/MO on Friday

Diana, your group sounds like so much fun.  I don't remember if I mentioned my small group on here, but I have one I get together with once a month too.  Highlight of each month for sure. 

The boys are going to love their quilts Ally. 

I am making good progress on getting my red & white quilt finished. After that one is completely done, I'm going to quilt my winter block quilt made from the blocks several of us exchanged a while back. 

Comment by Ally Bryant on Friday

These both are called disappearing nine patch very easy to do. But I think it shows up more in Rian's quilt. I spy quilt with different patches.
