I won!!

I have a wonderful story to tell this morning! I came home after work last evening to a box from AZ. Yes, I had put my name in one of the vendors of the quilt shows I saw in AZ during our visit out there...... I have won a wonderful, colorful set of Bali Pops! They are batiks and so very pretty............. I have to get a "shout" out to Odegaard's Sewing Center in Flagstaff, AZ. They were at the show I saw in Pine, AZ and that is who mailed me my winning wonderful gift!! I am so excited and…

Where does the time go??

Wow, only one week of May left. We are finally getting some lovely weather, altho it's suppose to be stormy later today. Oh, well...........it is Spring!

I kind of have a "grip" to share. I enjoy getting on the meet and share pages and see who is new. I try to do it at least a couple times a week to send a note to the newest people and welcome them to the site. My grip is almost no one puts a photo on any more. I enjoy seeing the person I am welcoming, so usually I look for those that…

It's been to long..............

Ho Ho Ho Everyone! I have been on to check a few blogs, etc.......but have been very slow in writing it seems!

We are all in the very busy season at the moment. I feel like I missed Thanksgiving and now it's almost the Christmas rush...........

Oh, it's Thursday and a new month!

Ladies, Ladies, Ladies!

Thank you all so much for the kind and friendly words. You do know how to "raise" a person up, when "she" is down............about- whatever. I do know I am very lucky to have so many wonderful lovely ladies that let me vent and also lift me up when I need it. A good "kick" in the bottom might help also....LOL

I am in decent health, I have a special man in my life, I have lots of stash in my sewing room and I am taking all of your advise here and there.…

Just another Wednesday .........

 Hi Ladies (& gents)

I am so very jealous of you all right now. It seems some how each one of you get to spend lots more time not only quilting, but traveling to quilt stores, finding wonderful "stuff" and spending your time making so many beautiful quilts, pillows, etc. You see, right now, I have to ban myself from quilt shops, as money is a problem. So since I am now only working part time, I am trying to pick up a second part time job and have just finished three very long…

First Holiday of the "summer"

Hi Ladies and Gents!

We had a wonderful weekend for Memorial Day this year. It's so unlike our usual, chilly, rainy upstate NY. The sunshine never left and it waited until today to decide to rain. That's a good thing because we did need the rain, but to hold off thorough the weekend was awesome!! Hope everyone had a relaxing or weed pulling or swimming or picnic or sewing............................. or whatever you chose…

Mothers day and snow!

It's been said before but I will say it once again............................

Have a very Happy Mother's Day to you all!!

ps: yes we woke up to snow on our cars and the deck railings............... May 9th, 2010!!

It wasn't a surprise as we have had snow in upstate NY before in May.........
