I just realized that it's been too long since I've posted. My new puppy Hershel is now 18 months old and weighs 78 pounds. Ha!
I took 2 Judy Niemeyer classes this year and have yet to finish the quilt tops. I'm working on a Crabapple Quilts "Trim the Tree" as a present for my daughter. I'm still not done quilting my "Fanciful Flowers" quilt and my new grandson's memory quilt is still not finished and he is geting ready to turn 3.
And I thought retirement was going to be stress…Continue
My one and only grandson (I have 6 granddaughters) had wanted an Elmo quilt but now he wants Dr. Seuss. He will be one in about 3 weeks so I was working on Elmo for his BD party. Now I will do a Dr Seuss quilt. Just bought the fabric online. I hope it is delivered quickly so I can get going on this. You may ask how a one year old let me know which quilt he wanted. He giggles when I hand him pictures. What more can I say!

Sounds kind of silly, but I just couldn't seem to get with all my projects this winter. I made snail's pace progress and really had to push myself. But for the last few weeks it's been great.

I also finished 7 out of the 9 blocks for my new grandson's quilt. He is due in about 2 weeks.
It's funny how sometimes we just…Continue
Just realized it's been almost a year since I posted. It's been so crazy this year. With the economy what it is we've been working so much harder just to stay in place. And the competition is so fierce because eveyone's in the same boat. So I'm using that as my excuse as to why the time has flown. Looking back much has happened but nothing bad, just busy and for that i'm thankful. My 6th granddaughter was born this year. Yes, 6 grandchildren, all girls. They are all beautiful and will be…Continue
Just had some trick or treaters. We haven't had any in recent years, but ever the optimist I bought some candy anyway and now I'm glad I did (even though I know I'll eat the leftovers and I definitely don't need it). It was cute to see the little kids dressed up. We live on acre lots with mostly teens and grown kids so not many trick or treaters. Now on to plans for Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays becuase we get to have the… Continue
