Our oldest grandson is a nascar fan. I found the scanned print of Jimmie Johnson on Ebay. He'll love it and will be a good lap quilt to wrap up in to watch the races. Have one more left to make the youngest brother. He is all army and camo. Have a great…Continue
I can't let a 60% off coupon go by without using it at JoAnn fabrics. I decided to get a new pair of gingher scissors. They were $59 and I got them for $28. Then, I got to thinking, is there a better brand out there that I am not aware of. What brand of scissors do you recommend? I'm always up for change!
It's been awhile since I posted. Thank you to the ones who sent me messages. The weather is finally turning colder... so closed the lake house. Down to one place to maintain at a time. The time just gets away...I did start a lap size quilt. Feels good to be back in my sewing room. Was in a slump this summer, but with the holidays coming up fast, I need to get busy. I promise to be better at posting!!!
Good morning ladies-
I finally am home to get some computer work done. Haven't been posting much, just one of those summers you'd like to forget. Hated to answer the phone...we lost several members of our family and a close friend to a freaking accident. We seem to be getting our heads above water now, so looking forward to a quiet Fall. I have been collecting fabric for a couple of lap quilts for Christmas gifts. We are heading out to Branson the end of Sept. Plan on spending two…Continue
We have been traveling the past week. Decided to drive to Halifax, NS via VT, NH, and Maine. We decided that many people miss out on the colors of Spring with the different trees leafing. The coast line of Maine was special. We stopped in Kennebunkport for lunch and picked out our fictious house on the sound! If only....
We stopped in Freeport at the LL Bean place and did a little shopping. Was surprised that they are open 24 hrs. We had lunch in Belfast down on the wharf where they…Continue
Do I divorce him or keep him around for a slow torture? We arrived home two nights ago at 10pm. We have had rules that we never travel at night, no more than eight hours, and never arrive home at night in case there is an issue with the house. We broke them all...my appt. in Orlando went smoothly and we were on the road by noon. Spent the night in SC when the storms got too scary to drive. That put us 14 hrs to home...
Before we left, hubby took all the food to the fridge downstairs.…Continue
Some of you that have been on this site for years will remember Miss Riley from Texas. What an artist and quilter she was. Unfortunately, she passed away. I saw these pictures this week and thought of her paintings of blue bonnets. We are in our last week in Florida. Next week, I will be in Orlando getting…Continue
The Quilt Lover's Hangout in North Ft. Myers, Fl had show and tell while you sipped mimosas! Now, that is a nice way to spend a couple hours while the guys are at the Daytona 500. The picture shows about a quarter of the shop...great store. What's nice is they rent machines for $10. Next year, I will bring mine. Bought a few fat quarters of fabrics that look like water for a wallhanging.…Continue
What a fabulous show they put on! Amazing quilts and wonderful people...these are three of the top winners. So much talent, I'm glad I wasn't judging! The gals from Quilt Lover's Hangout quilt shop had …Continue
We arrived to our rental last Saturday. I found it on the internet. We have already rented it for next year. It is a great place and close to shopping. The pool and I became close buddies immediately! There is a canal in the background that takes you to the Gulf of Mexico and Sanibel Island. We have a friendly turtle we feed in the evenings. It is a fresh water canal...alligators could be in there, so no dangling feet!! We have enjoyed finding our favorite Tiki Bar by the water...that's…Continue
We left just before a snow storm hit our area. We breezed through the south to Daytona for one night. Always like to stay on the beach...sleep with the sliding doors open and listen to the waves. I'm not a sunrise girl, but like to get up and watch the sun come out of the ocean!!!
We are in Orlando for three days at a time share sales pitch...of course we won't be buying in...but, three nights at a resort for $169 I'll listen to their chatter. Head out to Cape Coral in the…Continue
I haven't crocheted in 25 yrs. but with you tube, it is easy to refresh your skills. I wanted to make, my friend who will be going through chemo and was told she will lose her hair, a couple of cute alpaca hats. I really enjoyed making them and may start another crochet project in the future. My grandmother was the 1955 National Crochet Champion so maybe I have her gene!!! lol…Continue
Over the holidays, our good friend was diagnosed with breast cancer (33yrs. old) She had pain and her doctor wanted to give her antibiotics and she said no I want a biopsy. She had mastitis in the past and knew this was different. She saved her own life by knowing her body. They are waiting for the genetic testing to come back to see how much surgery this will involve. Luckily she was clean in the lymph nodes. She will undergo chemo regardless. I made pillowcases to fit a 12x18 pillow and a…Continue
We took a trip to Burlington, VT last week for a teaching conference. Decided since the weather was good, we drove through the Adirondacks. The area is in between seasons...waiting for snow for the skiers and snowmobiles...when I say isolated...I mean I almost peed my pants trying to find a place open!!! We stumbled on a quaint mom and pop cafe in Speculator. It was priceless, the waitress was cute as a button. They were from Vietnam. How they ever picked Speculator to call home. Soon you…Continue
