Hi everyone. I know I have not been on for awhile. I volunteer at the YMCA, in addition to working out 6 days a week, I am getting ready for a craft fair on the 25th and I have just been out straight. Just wanted to say hi and welcome to all our new members. It is -8 degrees here now...can't believe how cold it is. It is so hard to get up and out of the house at 7:30 when it is this cold but we do what we gotta do! I have been busy working on purses and tote bags...just got a couple new… Continue

Yeah!!! Another 8-10" of that white stuff is expected to start anytime now and continue till around noon tomorrow!
Has anyone seen Marley & Me? My DH and I went out to dinner and then to the movies...something we have never done before in the 10 years since we met!..and saw it. It was so good. It was one of those family movies that are rarely made anymore. I won't spoil it for anyone but if you like good, clean, funny movies, you really should go see it.

Would someone please explain to me why anyone would like this white stuff that I am looking at?
We got another 4-5" last night and then it turned to sleet and ice. Nice part about being retired is we don't have to go out in it. It is only the beginning of January and this is our 5th or 6th storm already...going to be a long winter. Oh well, that gives me more time to do some quilting..and maybe decrease the piles of UFO's that are taking over my sewing room.
Have a great day everyone!

Hi everyone! I finally got this photo thing down!!! I just added a few more pics. The 2 pics of the blue item with the pen in it is a checkbook cover...really easy to make..maybe a 1/2 hour project. The little girl in the "pit" is my granddaughter Lily at her 4th birthday party last October. She has been in gymnastics for 2 years so we had her party in the gymnastics center at the Y.

I tried to upload about 10 pics of different things I have made but for some reason, these are the only 2 that came through. The first is a tote bag that I made a couple years ago. The other is a picture of Grand Cayman from our cruise last March. I like to look at it because it makes me feel warm even though it is 5 degrees out and 6" of snow on the ground!!! Will try more pics tomorrow.
