This is the most recent "stash reduction" project. It might take me awhile if I only use them up in baby quilts.

It's a dull day here in the East and I plan to hit the sewing machines as soon as I can get the gumption to get out of this chair, and get dressed. Tues.

I have been dieting since Thanksgiving. My 45th nursing school reunion is in the Fall. Just my luck, the weight came off my fingers!!! I can't keep my trusty ole thimble on. It keeps flying off. I scotched taped it on!
What thimble do you find works best for you. I still love the metal ones...probably cause, that's the kind my grandma used and taught me to use.
We have had some spectacular sunsets this…Continue
It was a short week, due mostly to a medical procedure, part of my preventative care. (That's the "inside" part.) However, that's over, and all is well.…Continue
Looking at the last time I posted I was shocked to see it’s been almost 2 years! I do pop in from time to time to see what everyone has been working on!
I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and finding time to do some quilting!
One of my latest quilts I quilted for a customer a few months ago! …Continue
People are starting to say their goodbyes to me.
Since we don't know when we're going to be able to move (but hope soon) friends are…Continue
