Quilt With Us

With a meow she can get what she came for...

So, here is my version of Stairway to Cat Heaven. Not quilted yet.

Walk MS 2011

Hi everybody!

As you may know, my daughter was diagnosed with MS last summer. She's currently doing well, but has to give herself daily injections to keep relapses at bay. Since her diagnosis, I have found out at least three of my cousins are also affected. That's the thing with MS - its not always visible, and when you see someone walking with canes, crutches or in a wheelchair, MS isn't always what comes to mind. More invisible are the cognitive problems, the "MS fog" as my quilter…

SO looking forward to a new year

Its been a rough year, a lot of tough times, but also a few joyous occasions. I'm glad to see 2010 behind me. I'm hoping for many good things this year....like helping my daughter PLAN HER WEDDING! Yeah! My baby is engaged!! (no, not making her a quilt LOL)


In the immediate future (and most recent past actually) I finally put the quilt top I finished last winter on my sister's longarm, and have, over the last two days, quilted everything but the borders.

I'm so glad summer is over

Been a while since my last blog post, and I figured its time for an update to all the wonderful women who consoled and encouraged me (thanks for that).

When I last posted, I had recently lost my cat. We adopted a pair of kittens and although they don't replace my Diesel, they distract me.

My Mom had broken a hip and she's all better now.

My friend Cindy, who's husband as been accused of her murder, well, the S.O.B.…

New Grand-niece

My niece had her baby girl: Adriana Claire. She lives down in Maryland with her husband (this is their first/only due to infertility issues), and my brother & his wife also live there., So I haven't seen her in person yet, but we're hoping she'll come up for a visit this summer. Now, I already pieced her quilt top, up to my sister to quilt it. :)

I might have been rescued from that handbasket...

I know my last blog was full of depressing news. But I think things are looking up.

Cindy's remains were positively i.d.'ed, and her family held a wake and funeral (Police haven't released the body yet, but at least her family has closure). I feel better knowing she's able to tell the Medical Examiner her story now. Still angry as all h*** that this happened, but I'm confident justice will be served. Cindy's kids are with her siblings now, and hopefully they'll have happy…

where am I going, and why am I in a handbasket?

Normally, I'm a very shy person and only reply to other peoples' blogs, discussions, and photos. Normally, I'm very upbeat and have a slightly twisted sense of humor (the curse of the youngest of five children). But the last few weeks have been pretty tough.... I know there's plenty of people in worse situations and I really feel for you too, but I just need to vent a little.

My husband has been working out of state for two months, so until today I've been like a single…
