Good morning ladies-
I finally am home to get some computer work done. Haven't been posting much, just one of those summers you'd like to forget. Hated to answer the phone...we lost several members of our family and a close friend to a freaking accident. We seem to be getting our heads above water now, so looking forward to a quiet Fall. I have been collecting fabric for a couple of lap quilts for Christmas gifts. We are heading out to Branson the end of Sept. Plan on spending two…Continue
I hope you had a Spirit Led week, I know I did.
Monday was interesting. We had the solar eclipse to start the week. To end the week, there was a horribly destructive hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico. And in between, I was an instructor.
But first, and update on my husband. The medication is working. He is able to sleep better and with less interruptions to go to the restroom.
We did not really get into the eclipse. We have both witnessed…Continue
Carter has gone to stay with my contact person from Habitat for Humanity, but I still had more to do.…
I want to send well wishes to everyone who is living in the path of the hurricane or the subsequent tornadoes, flooding, etc. that will be occurring over the next few days. Please be safe and let us know you are okay.
only seven projects this year!!!! in the past there was one every one or two weeks and I got great gift ideas,
Welcome to another Spirit Led week. I hope last week went well for all. If not, hopefully the Spirit was with you.
Last week my husband asked me to make him a doctor appointment. He has been having trouble with his prostate for almost 2 years and would not let me get him to the doctor. So I called our doctor that we have used for 20 + years. They would not take him! Since we have not been to him in over 3 years, my husband would be considered as a 'new' patient. The…Continue
Common Threads met at Carol's.
She had this great quilt top finished. It was made from a pack of 19th Century Reproduction fabrics from a fabric/fiber museum, which has since closed. I was…Continue
Wow! I have been staring at my calendar this morning--August? Really? and the 16th? Well, I am behind the times, in a big way.
What have I been doing? gardening, driving back and forth to Minnesota and South Dakota. Quilt Wyoming in Gillette, Wyoming. Green Bay, WI. I feel like all I have been focused on is getting the laundry done and the lawn mowed before packing again and heading off.
Of course, along the way, I have managed to acquire more UFO's. Unbound and rebound a…Continue
I hope you had a wonderful Spirit Led week.
Due to unforeseen events, I was not able to get to the studio to clean up.
One event was daily picking up grandson from morning band practice and returning him in the evening for another round. That would not have been bad, but in between, I was doing research on auto and home insurance companies. It seems that my current one seems to 'lose' the payments sent in. I sent my vehicle insurance in via bank pay and they…Continue
Rebecca is at it again.…Continue
Does anyone know what happened to the Lasting Legacy groups? I can't find them!!
This has been one of those days when I think I should have just stayed in bed. About 10 days ago we decided to buy a 2017 Kia Sportage. It is candy apple red so pretty easy to see right?! Well my husband was sitting in a valet line at University Hospital in Columbia MO waiting to have them park it as the garage was full. I had to be there for a CT scan on my heart this morning. This man driving a shuttle bus for a local retirement home decides he can't wait for Larry to be able to move…Continue
Praying you had a Spirit Led week.
As I am growing stronger and health is improving, I am able to do more.
School will be starting back soon in the area. Though we only have one grandchild in school at this time, he is fun to keep up with. His dad has him every other week. So since we are local, Seth is able to come visit us after his morning band practice. (Sean lives about 10 miles out of town) That way his dad does not need to worry about him. He has a…Continue
Unlike at Lake Wobegon, it was not a quiet week at our place. Monday was spent washing all the sheets, towels and quilts we use in the trailer and giving it a good cleaning. Tuesday I CO another doll cardigan as we took the trailer back to its resting place.…Continue
I finished the binding on a 39" square wallhanging this afternoon comprised of Christmas blocks from a swap that Amanda Best hosted with the Piece Around the World group. I am bound & determined to quilt as many of my tops as I can before the end of the year.…Continue
The Spirit Led my life again this week.
Though I did not do any crafting, I was able to catch up on a lot of domestic needs that have been neglected this past month. I was even able to spend a little time outside on yard work. The temperature has been oppressive of late. Temps hitting near 100 and heat index from 105 to 110. You do not spend much time outside. This week will be more conducive to working outside.
I also felt well and strong enough to…Continue
Camping trips to the Uintas are usually low-drama, because we don't have to travel far from our home to reach beautiful campgrounds close to lakes for swimming and trails for hiking. This adventure was a little different.…Continue
Hello my quilting friends. It's been awhile since I posted so thought I would stop by and say hello. I have been busy today rearranging my closets to make room for a three drawer plastic storage unit that was given to me. The lady who has gifted me with her fabric stash gave me this unit. I will put it to good use. It's 24 wide and 25 high. Should hold a fair amount of fabric. With all the stuff in the closet out in the middle of the floor my sewing room looks like a bomb hit…Continue
