We are going to move the cabinet to

the wall where the bookcase was

better way so hope it will work out okay

I finished the socks last night

I have some washing on & we

Good morning.

My trip isn't until late Oct. so I hope the Autumn colors will cooperate'Even though we are going for DIL's Mom's BD, I am more excited about the sightseeing. Isn't that awful of me? LOL

Kathy I think you have a sign up for next year's BD club already. I haven't heard anything more from Lisa. I'm hoping she got her FQ. The poor lady has had an awful health year.

Sure is humid here today. I'll probably have to close the windows soon because of the heat.

Waiting for the PBS quilt and craft shows to start. Yesterday, I made an easy apron using MSQC's pattern (tutorial). Today I want to finish up some little quilt blocks for an exchange. 

Kathy, I hope you get some stamina back. Moving is really hard but it sounds like you made the right decision.

Take care all.

Yes!!..I am so tired of moving!!..no more!!..I do feel bad for my daughter, because things didn't work out the the she planned it...when I explained about Alzheimer's and what the patient is like..( her Dad)..it was more than she could cope with..with Alzheimer's John becomes the Dad and Julie, the 10 year old daughter..instead of 46.. Our apartment is working out just fine..everyday, we have been hauling boxes to the apartment...I am so tired..but I think this is the end!..I am hoping to get my strength back..because I promised that I would be the Story Lady at Julie's school....I will see the Pain Doctor on Tuesday...we will talk about Fibro !...which I think is bothering me, especially at night!..that is why I can't sleep..too much pain.
.....Barbara, when are you leaving on your trip? I sure wish I was going! You lucky dog!!

Hello everyone,

Janice, So glad Pat is doing OK and her tests came out good.  I love your Bath Set and the idea of Heart Soaps is a good one.

Barbara, Your trip East should be really fun and the changing leaves in that area are so beautiful.  Even though the thought of winter does not thrill me, I do love Fall and the beautiful colors.  It is pretty here in the mountains as they just glow with color.

Ruthann, Hope you have many customers today and then you can go home and enjoy the three day weekend.  Gives you a chance to be creative, which you do well.

Kathy, Are you tired of moving yet?  It is such a big job but I know when you get settled and accustomed to your new living arrangements you will be very happy.  If Big John makes some friends with some men, he will be more content too.  It's hard to be the only man among all the wmen.

Yesterday was such a good day for me as I was feeling well and no need for any naps so I got to do some sewing on my great-granddaughter's quilt.  It will be nice and colorful but not gaudy, I think she will like it. Well now off to some sewing, it is so relaxing.  Hugs to all.
