OMG....I just saw on tv that there was a shooting at an elementary school in Connecticut and 27 people are now dead. 18 of them are children from 6 yrs. old. What kind of freak shoots 18 babies? Those poor children in that school have to live with this trauma for the rest of their lives. Please offer up prayer for those who have died and for their families left behind...also for the rest of those children who saw it all. Oh my heart breaks at the cruelty in our world.
I had a great day yesterday, albeit an exhausting one! A few friends and I went on a bus trip to Philadelphia to the Quilt Show. We had several hours to view the quilts and shop!!!! I was a bit disappointed in the show this year...very few "traditional" quilts, but loads of art quilts. Not that they aren't beautiful, but traditional is more to my taste. There weren't loads of quilts entered for judging...lots and lots for…Continue

I was cleaning out a closet way under some stairs in my house yesterday and look what I found~! This had to have been way back in the corner from when my Mom owned this house ( I bought it from her in 1981).

Here is a little quilt I did in a class at our LQS.
It is a quilt as you go so when you are finished with the top you are finished with the quilt! Love those!
Just want to say that I am praying for all of those in the path of IRENE these next few days. Please everyone take heed of the warnings and evacuations...life is too precious to risk! Batten down the hatches and stay safe everyone! We took everything inside last night and will pack up a bag of the important stuff tonight with a couple changes of clothes and meds just in case they evacuate us. We are only 1/4 mile from the bay and 1/2 mile from the ocean so it is a strong possibility for…Continue

I wanted to wish my friend Roz a Happy Anniversary today! It was two years ago that she and I met at a beginner's quilting class. We had the most awesome teacher and such fun making that first quilt. We became fast quilting buddies and now good friends. It is now many classes and quilts later and I am so grateful for that first class. I really stepped out of my box to attend and I have gained so much by doing it. A new best friend and so many other new friends as well. What a blessing…Continue
