About Me
I have just retired from my career due to medical conditions. I had planned on devoting my retirement to quilting, alas, a shoulder injury and arthritis on my hands has limited my pursuit of my hobby. So, I quilt a little, read a little, and take long walk as form of exercise.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, hand quilting, machine quilting, embroidery, general sewing, gardening
My pets are awesome!
Mischief, our 19-year old, passed away on August 2016; Abigail, our 15-year old, passed away last December, 2016; and our dog Bianca, just crossed over th rainbow bridge 2 weeks ago. We now have two rambunctious kitties who are 10 months old

Hello June 2016

Whoever said that retirement gives you more time to do the things you love to do, never really paid attention to the fact that there is not enough time in a day to do the things that really need to be done.

April Fools'

Posted on March 31, 2017 at 3:45pm 6 Comments

It's only fitting that Mother Nature has the last laugh on us - snowing right now and about 6-10 inches will fall by Saturday pm. 

I have not been on this site for a while.  Though I retired, it seems that there are less hours to do the normal daily chores. When was the last time I thoroughly cleaned the house - let me see, when did I have some company? Can't remember.

Anyways, I'm still quilting.  I now belong to a local quilt guild, and have volunteered to help out with…

Quilting on hold...too hot!

Posted on July 21, 2015 at 6:15pm 7 Comments

Quilting put into hiatus for now, too hot in my sewing room.  I do have an air conditioner in there and can turn it on, but...if I decide to cut fabrics, I have to turn on the bright light so I can see what I'm cutting, then I have to turn on the 1700-watt iron so I can press the pieces, then turn on the Janome Horizon to start sewing, along with my Nook to listen to music.  I then have everything running and voila! a short-circuit on the entire half of the…

I will try to get in here and check in but I don't promise anything.  We spent a long time with sickness and my cancer scare.  Yes I had Colon Cancer and had to have surgery but no chemo or other treatments.  Then we had a fire and lost our garage/storage building, That was a real terror.  I am still fighting with the insurance for what is rightfully ours.  It is a case of same old, same old. I think I will try to look you up on facebook and see if we can connect.  Thinking of you always.

Hi Aida,  Hope you won't have a heart attack from getting a note from me, but, I was on the web page and thought that I would check and see how many are still online. lol  Well, I really don't think that I will be on here very often but could not pass up the chance to say "Hi!".

Hi Aida, I live in Rutland, VT.  I'm going to White River Junction this morning with hubby for a doctor's appt. which is a little over an hour from here.  We should meet up sometime when the weather gets better.

Good morning,

Cold? It's so much better than last winter.....Today on the prairie it is sunny and bright and no wind. Wind is the biggest factor for the cold.

I am now into the sashing and borders of my Christmas quilt...have fallen in love with it as I gain confidence with FM.

Hey, it's winter, pop the quilt out and do some handwork for mini breaks...little steps will get it done. Good luck!

Today was a much warmer day. 11 degrees C translates to about 50 f. Breezy and some sunshine. Hope it stays for a few days. Glad the worst missed you. Have a great day

Aida, yes winters weather is here a bit early, the weatherman is saying it should get back to more seasonal temperatures next week hopefully he is right. Maybe the storm you are expecting will miss your area. I'm Sorry to say my knowledge of your part of the world is quite lacking. Are winters there very cold and snowy? Here's hopeing you get lots of quilting time in. Enjoy the rest of your day. Thanks for reading my post.
