FYI Thimble sizing

MEASURING FOR A THIMBLE

There are several ways you can measure your finger to order the right size thimble to fit you just right. The thimble sizes are based on US ring sizes.

Measure the finger at the base of the nail on the finger that you want to wear the thimble. For taller thimbles, measure between the base of the nail and your first…

Skinny fingers...

I have been dieting since Thanksgiving. My 45th nursing school reunion is in the Fall. Just my luck, the weight came off my fingers!!! I can't keep my trusty ole thimble on. It keeps flying off. I scotched taped it on! 

What thimble do you find works best for you. I still love the metal ones...probably cause, that's the kind my grandma used and taught me to use.

We have had some spectacular sunsets this…

Where does the time go.....

We have been busy with opening the lake house. The weather is finally turning to the good. Getting flowers in and feeding the birds! We have a very rare bird feeding at our feeder...it is an Indigo Bunting. My hubby remembers seeing one when he was a little boy. Sure hope they nest in our bushes and stick around!…

Warm and sun

We arrived in Fl. Spent the morning with friends at Blue Springs Park. Over 300 manatees came in to warmer water quite a site along with other wildlife! Orlando is a crazy place to drive, but it is so torn up that it is dangerous driving  if, they ever finish it’ll be nice.…

Fresh Start...

Good morning ladies-

I always look forward to a new year...mainly because we will be leaving for two and half months to Fl. It is a time for reflection and planning. Last year was good... but we lost dear friends and family members. We all know how difficult that is. Hoping this year will just be quiet and without so much drama in our lives as well as the world. 

We are spending New Years stripping out three rooms of our house. Have contractors in while we are gone to upgrade…

What was your favorite Christmas or Hanukkah gift as a child?

We had the grandsons this weekend,and we are dragging!!!! lol The topic came up, what was your favorite gift.  Mine was this gorgeous bride doll. I cherished her...she went everywhere with me. Hubby's was his first BB gun.

The question today is...tell us about your favorite toy!

The difference between a gift and a present...

A gift is something you want the person to have.

A present is something they want and you bought it for them.

A Christmas story (I'd like to forget)

We bought a new car this past summer. We didn't notice it didn't have mud guards on it. I would've made that part of the deal(darn). So, yesterday we drove down to the local garage to have them installed. When I went to get into hubby's toyota truck, we discovered I couldn't get my knee under the dash. I had not been in it since I got the new knee. Soooo, stop laughing...we get the bright idea... I should ride in the back of the pickup! If, I were 5 that would have been heaven. We only live…

Calling all QUILTERS...

Good morning-

I hope everyone is busy getting those holiday projects finished! BUT...let's take the time to post a message! We are a wonderful group of ladies and gents who share a passion. QWU has given us a site to share and make new friends. We don't want to lose this site...apathy has done that to many. I was off the site for a few months, but am so glad to be reunited with friends near and far.

So, ladies and gents let's hear from you...It doesn't have to be all about…

This santa is done with holiday sewing...

We have been having unseasonable weather. Hard to stay home to get sewing done. Have all the shopping done, now comes the wrapping part. ugh, not my favorite part. The grandsons are getting older, so not as many gifts to wrap. 

Our youngest grandson(8) loves army toys and especially helicopters. We bought him the biggest toy helicopter we could find with soldiers. This is his quilt.…

Wishing Everyone a Wonderful Thanksgiving!

I'm sure everyone is busy in the kitchen...we always host Thanksgiving. I am the only one in the family that likes to cook (and is the better cook)!! Bought gingerbread houses to decorate for the two grandsons. That should be entertaining. Also, putting two boxes together for two 8 year old boys in St. Croix for Christmas through Adopt A Family. We always take the grandsons shopping for charity, so this will be their project this year. 

Have a wonderful holiday with family and…
