Seriously, I was ready to kill him! Cleaning windows and mopping floors and he thinks he's going to cross that floor with his shoes on after doing yard work!!! Finishing up my 6 purses this morning. Next on the list is an I Spy quilt for new parents in August.…Continue
I must have been out of my mind when... I agreed to make 6 purses for a lifelong friend. She wants them for her sisters for Christmas. Promises are promises...Again, I'm trying to get this off my list before summer gets here. This weather can't seem to make up it's mind...…Continue
The best part of Spring is all the pretty flowers! Luckily, we don't have allergies, so I have fresh flowers all the time. We had a very nice Easter with our son and his family! They surprised the boys with tickets to the first home Michigan game. As you can see, they are huge fans! I finished the tree skirt for a wedding gift in July. I am so glad to have that off the list. This week will be cleaning windows and screens now the weather is nicer. …Continue
We've been home for a couple of weeks. Finally, caught up on appointments, etc. The weather is bouncing around. Managed to get some yard work done. Working on a tree skirt for a wedding gift. The wedding is in July, but want it off the list. Wishing everyone a Happy Easter and Passover. We have brunch with the family then head to the lake house to do yard work…Continue
We only have ten days left before heading back north! Hoping the major storms are done by then! We rented a home for next year this week. The management group said they rent 80 homes and had only three left. Luckily, one was the one we wanted. They have never seen it so crazy! With the winter so bad, people are getting ready for next winter.…Continue
Went to my favorite quilt shop ...Quilt Lover's Hangout in North Ft. Myers. They moved! Beautiful new shop. They are always so friendly and helpful. There was a newbie trying to buy supplies for a class...it was fun listening to her questions and concerns.
Told her, the only thing you have to worry about...there is no treatment for this…
Snowstorms definitely lend themselves to getting a few projects done. Had several blocks leftover from other projects. So, I made up some hotpad runners for both houses and hostess gifts. Kept me out of the refrigerator!!! We leave next week for FL. I can feel the tan coming!!!…Continue
You midwesterners just had to share the white stuff...we are predicted to get 12-20inches here in Syracuse. Decided to beat the storm surge at the grocery and liquor stores, so we went yesterday to stock up. I also stopped by the fabric store to buy a few yards for an UFO that I want to take to FL. I'm not always in the pool! So...let it snow...we're ready!…Continue
I thought I was down to one UFO. Much to my surprise I found a drawer with three more. There is definitely funny business going on in my sewing room. So, I need to separate the male UFOs from the females, or I'll never find the end! Have a great week!
We just returned from a fantastic trip. We flew to Phoenix on Thanksgiving day to spend with dear friends. After three days we traveled to Santa Fe, stopping at the National Petrified forest. The beauty of the scenery in New Mexico and Az was awesome. Every ten miles , it seemed to change. We were in heaven shopping in Santa Fe. We collect American Indian art. After blowing our budget, we continued on to northern NM to the Navajo Dam. My father worked on the building of…Continue
I'm sure many of us are busy getting ready for turkey day! We are heading out to Phoenix at 6am! Spending the holiday with friends for a few days, then onto Santa Fe, NM. We are touring NM and onto the Grand Canyon ending in Las Vegas for a conference. While we are there, we're renewing our vows at the Elvis Wedding Chapel! Friends are participating...pictures will be posted!
Have a great Thanksgiving...we have a lot to be thankful for.
What is the average age of your UFOs before you finally get around to finishing them? This one is about 5 years old. The woman who hand pieced it, made sure it was never going to come apart! I had to take a row off due to damage...didn't think, I'd ever get done ripping! Will take this up to the lake next summer. The Fall has been wet and cold this year. Have done a lot of sewing because of it....…Continue
