Getting old is NOT fun.

Posted on June 14, 2018 at 5:09am 13 Comments

It's a dull day here in the East and I plan to hit the sewing machines as soon as I can get the gumption to get out of this chair, and get dressed. Tues. I walked across town to vote at the elementary school. Yesterday I washed all the floors and rearranged some furniture and today I haven't got enough energy to pull a hat off my head. Old age is NOT my friend. I'm going to a church Supper tonight. I thought it was yesterday. After I got my floors done I took a shower and changed my clothes…

I do the dumbest things

Posted on May 30, 2018 at 7:50am 11 Comments

Last week I started a cover to put over a big screen t.v.  I don't remember leaving one of my land line phones on the ironing board in the sewing room but I laid the t.v. cover over it. I have been tearing this apartment apart all week looking for that phone. Even went to the garbage bin thinking I might have thrown it in a trash bag.  Can't you just picture me going through those bags I put out there?  Perhaps the neighbors just thought I had taken up  a new hobby "Dumpster Diving". I tried…

Good Morning Quilters

Posted on May 11, 2018 at 4:12am 11 Comments

I had the opportunity recently to take a free motion quilt class. It was a fun day. I still have a lot to learn but did pretty good for a beginner. I didn't know you had to lower your feed dogs and pull the bobbin thread up. A little knowledge makes things much easier.  I joined the Quilters Guild a couple of months ago. Now I belong to three sewing groups. 

Yesterday I decided to tear up my little garden spot so I can re-plant and add new plants. I'm so sore today I…

March Already

Just checking in to say hello to all my Quilting Friends.

I have had a fairly productive Winter so far.  I got a third quilt back from the LAQ yesterday but have to put the binding on before I take a picture.  I started working on a Sunbonnet Sue for my second great granddaughter. I'm also working on a wall hanging when I go to our Sewing Club.  I can't believe how fast the time flies. Our Snow Birds will be packing up and moving back to their homes before too long. 

My next…

Hi Irene, I see u r online meet u in chat

Happy February 1st, Irene! I'm so sorry to hear about your house. It must be awful as you took care of it all those years and then other people "trash" it. People have no respect for other people's property, it seems. I do hope this other gal takes care of it, and know you probably are anxious to sell it and be done with it. Where is Bud now? I've finally reached the binding part of the Irish Chain Quilt. It came out beautifully. I will post a picture as soon as I'm done and get all the basting threads and markings off it. Also, doing some small projects - table topper for Spring and a little table runner, too. Take care of yourself and keep in touch! Hugs, Becky

Hello Irene and Happy New Year! How much snow do you have? We have a couple inches but I think New England and the south have a lot more than we do. It's cold here - down to 7 last night and only 16 right now. Supposed to warm up on Monday and next week. I've been sick (hubby, too) w/upper resp. inf. since before New Years. He's feeling better but mine is hanging on. went to docs on Monday. I'm so tired of hacking, coughing, etc. This too, shall pass - can't come too soon for me. LOL Love you, Becky

Oh Irene, I am so very sorry to hear that you have lost your dear sister. She struggled a long time from what you previously told me about her. She is now at peace with no more pain. I will say a prayer for her. Take care of yourself. Love, Becky

Irene, I wanted to give you my most sincere condolences as you sister slips nto another room.  When we see someone we love suffer it is so difficult to bare, but you now know she is at peace, out of pain and at rest after such a struggle.  I pray that the adjustment for you is a little easier knowing you are supported. Peace be your guide.

Yes I read your post and feel bad for you as you have to travel so much to see everyone. I am now going to ask if anyone would like to help me in an attempt to make the 9 purple quilts for the south Carolina  shootings that took place last year..but so far I have..3 ladies.

Please go on my face book page and see about my niece's daughter..she had a bad surgery on her head...she can't walk or feed herself, or anything else... she is 14 yrs old...how sad.

it is really hot out so my sewing time gets put off,,I really don't want to be in there except when I am finishing my UFO's - I got 6 out of 12 done,,it looks pretty good....now to give them away.!

I may end up giving a quilt to my neice that is in the hospitial. it really doesn't look good...

hope you had a great 4th of July,,we had a great one and I turned 62,,YAY..but I am still working...35 hrs a week...whew! I am tired...but so far it is still good... Dh still works and we are doing just fine,,going home back up north...to visit the grandchildren and our kids...

Be good and keep up the good work you are doing..miss seeing you on here..

So sorry, Irene, for all the heartaches you are going through. Your sister has fought a long and hard battle, but I know it still is not easy to see her in her last days. God will take care of her in his loving arms - take comfort in that she will see him soon and no more pain. Poor little baby - he is with God, too. Yes, we are looking forward to the train trip. We'll be gone a long time, so hope I don't get too homesick. Hugs to you, Becky

Oh Irene,I am so sorry about your sister and praying for her. How sad about her great-granddaughter. So sad. Had she been having any health issues since she was born? Do take care, my dear - I know you have your hands full. Love you, Becky

Thanks Irene.  I'm going to send her a quilt to cover up with when she has her chemo even thought the temps in Vegas are already in the low 100's.  A woman in my quilt guild has been having chemo for ovarian cancer & she said she is just freezing while they are doing the procedure.

That is so sad Irene.  I know it has to be very hard for you to not get really upset with him.  Is there a way for the nursing home staff to take his phone away?  Or would that cause him just more anxiety?

We found out yesterday that our 44 yr old DIL Louise has breast cancer.  She is having a lumpectomy on Tues and then will have radiation & chemo, but I don't know how long after the surgery before that will start.  Our granddaughter is almost 17 and has her own car so I know she will be a great help to her mom.  Our grandson is 11 and is kind of immature as his mom babies him a lot so it will probably take a while before he realizes how serious this is.  He plays on a traveling baseball team and our son is the coach.  They had already made arrangements to play in a tournament in S. California next week so Damon & Louise decided to continue on with those plans.  Her sister is going to spend a few nights with her while Damon & Noah are gone.  They want life to continue to be as normal for the kids as possible for as long as possible, which I think is the right decision.  She found this just by having a routine mammogram so it is a good thing she had one because a lot of women her age don't do that.  We were not planning on making a trip to Las Vegas this year, but we might have to do that if things take a turn for the worse.  I sure hope not!
