Good Morning

Well it is the 1st April

i could say i won a million

then say April fool as it is

that time when we may be

tricked but it not like when

i was a kid when it was all

harmless fun

It a nice start to the day

but it is April now so i guess

showers will be the order of the

month so will need to just

see the forecast each day

I finished the socks i do find

that i get pins & needles & numbness

in my hands when in bed at night

Not sure what i will be doing today

i can't carry on with the quilt until

i get the backing fabric

Well wishing you a Wonderful Day

& that you will have a Blessed April

Hugs Janice

You are right Barbara..we hear so much political news..it is just one big soap opera...the ripping is going quickly..and easily!..great!..Barbara, you just made me laugh!..but I think you are right..lately I feel like WonderWoman, without the gorgeous figure.,..i can't wait to go back to the Castle to sew I these new rose fabric sashes.oh, I am posting a new picture of our Poppy Season here in the Antelope Valley, where I live!..Poppies are our State Flower..they grow wild here in the Spring..?It reminds me of Little House on the Prairie...and we have plenty of land for that....

Hi All. I love when Icheck in here and there has been a lot of chatter.

Marianne, have fun with your life audit. I think as we get older (wiser?) we all do a little of that. Well, maybe not Kathy. Seems she's going faster than ever. LOL

Hope you are enjoying the sewing circle about now, Kathy. Who would of thought you would need to go back to the nest to get rest after being at the castle? Glad your GD and BF are OK and you were able to help. Godd luck with the ripping.

I had QOV this AM and started a new quilt. It's a pretty simple one so should be able to get it put together fairly quickly. My ME club is next Tues. and I thought it was today. Talk about life audits, I need a memory boost. 

Hope the election speeches don't overwhelm you  Janice. It gets sort of frustrating here in the USA when election time rolls around. By the time it's vote day I can hardly figure out who to believe.

Good Morning!..after a good night sleep...I think I need a pot of coffee!..going home today! Back to the Nest..I have a lot of seam ripping to do to take off this black sashing on my quilt .....at least I can sit and talk to the ladies at the Sewing Table today (1:00pm)..and catch up!
......Marianne, I love that phrase Life Audit!..that is important for you to do..for all of us to do...here in America, we call it the Bucket List. What are the things You want to do in life!..any dreams still not fulfilled?...you are right about the time , age and health!..I know I push myself to get things done..and then I pay for it on the other end...too tired to move ;;;) I am sure we all do that!..we quilters don't want to miss anything!
.....sorry, about the Birthday List...... Have a wonderful day!..I am now in search of the coffee pot..work on your Bucket List and Be Happy!

Marianne, as far as I know, the Birthday list is no longer available.  We did it one year (2013) and no one wanted to continue doing it.

Comment by Janice Aitkens yesterday
