Sunday past~

Hi Everyone! Hope the weather is getting better and better each day your way!

We are having warmer weather, slowly, some ups and downs along the way, but it is coming!!

As for this past Sunday, we had two of our grandchildren, Cleo and Savannah here coloring easter eggs. Since I will be gone next week having Easter with two of the other grandkids in NC, we did eggs early. We also hid plastic eggs with coins and small Easter baskets, in different rooms for them to find. It was a…

Another trip coming up!

Yes, do you believe it............ we, my SO and myself are traveling to Switerland (Zurich) for my SO nephew's wedding. We leave tomorrow about 12:55pm and are returning on Sunday the 4th of Oct. It is really exciting even if it is a short visit. Just wanted to let you all know when you don't hear anything for a week or so..........

Hope this note finds everyone doing well and keeping up with the quilting!!

I'm back......................

Hi Everyone! It's been awhile since I have been on the site. Partly because of time and partly because I was away and there was no computer............

I see that everyone has been very busy with their own families, quilt guilds starting up, fall events, etc.

I was gone from 9/11 until 9/20. I went to PA and met my girlfriend at her place and from there the next day we headed to the Outer Banks with several other couples for a few days. It was wonderful, relaxing, great weather,…

August 31st!!

Wow how did we get here already?! Time seems to be running by even quicker that ever before! I know it's the very last day of the month, but I am saying a belated Happy Birthday to all the August Gals and Guys!! I hope that it was every bit as wonderful day as it should be on your day!

We still have new people coming on the site daily, isn't it great? I wish I had time to welcome each and every one of them, but there just isn't enough hours in my day...............................…

I am here to say--------------

Ladies, I am here to say THANK YOU for all your wonderful comments and prayers. I know you are all correct in the fact that it happens to a lot of us. I was in a very sad and pityful mood the day I wrote that.....

I have lots of ups and downs, right now the downs are winning, but I am working each day to improve that!

Work is work and I have just been given two new jobs, that will keep me busy. I will do what I have to do!

As for my home life, quilting is what it's all about…

Just dragging........................

Well, my mood is not doing well these days at work. I need to be able to keep busy to make it through the day without feeling like I hate it. I just remember the days and years when I was so happy here, but a lot has changed and if the work is slow, then it's even harder to make it through an entire week. I have to be here for the paycheck, seriously, I am in big time debt (I know a lot of people are), but I just can't quit or retire. I looked into SS, but it doesn't pay enough now. I will… Continue

Sat am and busy...............

Good Morning All! Here it is another weekend and almost all fulled with "stuff" to do already. That's why the weekends go so quickly I guess. I have a hair and nail appointment at 10:30pm. Never use to have my nails done, but decided that I have to start treating myself............... because I am worth it!

Once back home I have a quilt to finish up for a little gal that's turning five today. Her kid party is in the afternoon and then at 6 tonight the adults (family) goes. Elle is…

It's July 13th already?!?!

I just find it so hard to be almost mid July already where does our summer go? Yes, where did our summer go? We have had some downright "not so nice" weather the past few weeks. We should have known with a warm and beautiful Memorial Day, that the 4th of July might not be all it should be.......... Good ole NY weather, what ya going to do?!!?!

I hope that everyone had a great weekend in spite of the rain, etc. We had a very nice one. Busy running about, but enjoyed it. We got to…

Hi All! I am miffed, I have tried several times today to get on the meet & share page for new quilters. It keeps telling me that it's not a valid page to go back, etc. Are you having some kind of problems with it or what's up?? I miss not being able to get in there and welcome new quilters. Wish I could find time to do it with everyone that comes on, but can't keep up with the numbers.......... That's not a bad thing, it's just to hard to do each day. I usually find a few moments in the… Continue

July 7th already?!

Good Morning Ladies and Gents,

Where does the time go? We had a very nice 4th of July. The weekend was extra long for me because I had off on Friday and Monday for the holiday, as we have a floater besides the normal day off. And I had taken Thursday off as a vacation day. It was very very nice......... At the same time we had visitors from AZ during that time. My S Os son and family came here for the holiday weekend and headed back home yesterday. The boys have grown of course, even… Continue

Wednesday Evening!

Hi Everyone. I just thought I would jot a few lines and see what comes of it. It is late and I should be getting to bed, but don't seem to be as tire, as I know I am.... It is most likely the med. I am on for this terrible iching...... It is still a "big" part of me, I called the Dr again and he said double up on the pills. I do hope that this works!

As far as quilting, I am on the slow side with doing........ Seems I am more in the thinking then doing stage at the moment. I need…

Just not suppose to work................

Well, I tried to get some pictures on the site. I got them from the CD and dragged them onto the area it told me to. I was happy, to soon............. When I went to continue on, after I had written little notes with them all, no go! It told me the first picture wasn't correct, please take it off (remove it), which I did, on down the line each time I got rid of one, another one wasn't going to work either......... I have no idea why and the frustraction was really getting to me. So needless… Continue

Monday evening and I am finally on my own computer!!

Happiness is a working computer!!! I have been sneaking peeks at work during the day, because I don't want to be "out of the loop", I really enjoy this site and all you lovely people on it! It's a great feeling that I can ask a question or mention a problem and I get some ausome replies.......... Thanks so much!

Now next I am going to try to get some pictures on my site, but don't hold your breath, because I don't really know what I am doing. My daughter is at a meeting so there is… Continue

Ichy Wednesday............

Good Morning Ladies......... My turn to complain and whine or whatever.......... I did the normal and usual thing this past weekend, pulled weeds to my hearts contend. Needless, to say the flowers are coming along nicely and the gardens look great with fresh mulch and all. Me, on the other hand, not so great........ I am a mess, got into something, have no idea what. So I went to the DR, saw the PA and she gave me what I usually have to take for several days, prednisone and it usually does the… Continue

Another Monday!

Good Morning all!

Wow, the start of another week, it's not slowing down any and yet I am not sure of what I have completed, if anything........... Just moving around the world at a to fast pace! Guess that has a lot to do with the time of year. Good weather and everything that comes with it all, like gardens, sunshine, parties; it sure does mess with my sewing!! I don't like that, but it's life! Things may slow down a pace and I can get back to it.

I tried last night to get some… Continue

Tractor quilt material?!

Hi Everyone! One of you gals asked if we knew of any material with tractors on it. I am sorry I did forget who it was, but wanted to pass this info along and hopefully the gal will see it and check it out!

I was online at FatQuarter World today and looking through the fabrics, when I came across a cute kit that makes a Tractor quilt! The manufacturer # fqwkfunny, the quilt is called Fanny Farm Tractor Quilt kit. I expect that you could enlarge it if you wanted to. It was really…
