July 24 - Continuing to mend

I had a blessed Spirit Led week, I hope you did also.

My husband and I rode with a son and his family to the Dallas Metroplex for the birthday party.

We had a great time.  Baby Daniel was one busy little boy, with lots of big and little people to play with.  

They had a cook out with kabobs and grilled chicken.  There were all types of fresh fruit like pineapple, and kiwi and fresh melons.  

After eating was going to be present time, but the babies…

Two more finished for 2017.

It's been a busy year, mostly taken up with handquilting my Caswell reproduction.  The next in line was my Carrie's Garden, named for a special friend of mine. . This one, though done by hand with needleturn applique and English Paper Piecing, is to be used as a tablecloth so is machine quilted.  …

July 17 - Under the Weather

I hope all have had some special Spirit Led days.  

It started with a bad summer cold, but soon moved into a sever case of bronchitis.  I am on the mend now.  But I will be requesting prayers for more healing.  God is good and faithful.  He is my strength.  

Through I have battled to sew, I was always too tired to concentrate.  I am back now though.  Yesterday I was able to make a toddler bib for my grandson that will be turning 1 next Saturday.  The bib is…

Another finish

I can't remember if it will be 2 yrs or 3 in Sept that I took a class from Bonnie Hunter, but I finally finished piecing the top that I started in that workshop.  It is called Bricks in the Barnyard from her Scraps & Shirttails II book.  Her version has a braided border, but I decided to do a piano key border…

July 5 Another busy time

What a week.  I got a call early on Monday soon after writing my last post.  Our son, who lives a block away, needed me to baby sit.  He was scheduled to take her to his mother in law, but something came up there.  He had a scheduled meeting with the city manager about sewage backing up into his house.  He has been confronting this problem since he moved in 9 years ago.  The city has been trying to remedy the situation, but our son is tired of having to live in a house with concrete floors.…

Yes I have been AWOL for quite a while

So I guess my last post was Thanksgiving.

No I haven't been busy just working and playing with the grand kids.  Last week I was on vacation. An actual vacation where I didn't really have anything to do. Soooo, DD and I loaded the boys up into the car and off we went.  Mt. St. Helens blew up on my birthday eons ago and I had never been there.  We finally made the trip.…

June 26 - Oh my goodness

I hope you had a very Spirit Led week.  Again mine was a mixed bag.  

My friend sent a picture of her banner.  The picture is not real good and I hope when we get together again I can get a better one.  But here it is:

The colors did not come…

Busy week

I have had a very busy week.  Bud took a critical turn for the worse and I went to Machias 4 times last week.  He died late Sunday night.  It's a blessing, his dementia was at it's peak and he was nothing more then a skeleton. His son is coming the 27th and the graveside service will be held on the 29th. He will be buried with military honor's. A CD of him and his friend, Frank will be played as well. 

On a more cherry note I spent the day up at the hall on Tues. and got a lot of my…

June 19 Mixed week

Welcome to a new week.  May it be Spirit Led.

This week was a mix of things.  The first part of the week was completing a yard banner.  It was a gift to my best friend.  We met for brunch on Wednesday.  Though we stay connected via email almost daily, it is really nice to visit in person.  We used to meet almost monthly, but now it is every 3 to 4 months.  Our schedules just do not meet up.  She loved her banner.  It was funny, she thought I had brought it just to show her…

Sapphires quilt is done!

Yesterday I had a couple of hours in my studio and finished it.  I'm happy with the outcome and my son has already expressed his opinion with "FABULOUS".   That makes me feel good.  The quilt is fairly square so the question is, which end should be up?  When I was in the design wall phase, the winding path was meant to be on  the left.  However, I am liking the path horizontal.  What do you think?  …

June 11 - Domestic Spring clean

Welcome to another Spirit Led week.  I hope your past week went well.

For me, this past week was used to catch up on some domestic deep cleaning.  Not much fun, and definitely not needing a photo shoot.  LOL  It was still wet outside, so outdoor work was postponed again.  I would rather do the outdoors than the indoors.  Just as my husband went out to mow on Friday, it started raining again.  With all this rain, it is stirring up allergens.  I am miserable, with itchy watery…
