It's been awhile since I posted.

It's going to take awhile for me to catch up on all your blogs. My computer went to the shop a month ago and I just got it back yesterday.  

I have started two quilts, made some progress on a Wall hanging and at the present time cleaning out things I don't need in my sewing room and reorganizing the closet. I also cleaned my bedroom closet and got rid of a bunch of stuff.  

We had a very hot Summer so I'm glad the weather is cooler so I can sit and sew without melting. I'm…

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 10 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 9 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…

Hi, Irene!  Sorry I haven't been on here in a long time!  Decided I needed to connect back up and refresh my life with other quilters and saw your comment from back in 2014!!!  Wow, how time flies!  Have been busy, though, with some big quilts, other hobbies and activities.  Age also getting the better of me at times, but working on keeping myself in the best condition I can.  Hope you are in good health and continuing to sew.  I read your story about misplacing your phone.  Had to laugh, but the same thing happens to me all the time!  Take care, Gladys

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.
