A thought for today

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us !

Missing, Missing, Missing...

I am sorry to be missing so much, tooooo much going on, like non-stop company & that kinda horrible stuff. Can't piece, can't play, can't think..oh wait, never could do that?

I adopted a new child yesterday & she moved in permanently yesterday. No time to play with her though at this time.

I am missing you guys, don't forget me!!! Like "Arnold", I WILL BE BACK!

Here is my… Continue

The folding of the American Flag

Not every one knows that the folding of the American Flag represents something. Each carefully snapped fold,13 of them, has special meaning.

I honor those who have/do serve this country so we may fly this beautiful flag.

May it always preserve for us the rights, privileges and freedoms we enjoy today & always know that this "freedom" did not come without a price!


The 1st fold of our flag is a symbol of… Continue

New beginning or is it a new ending?

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and
make a new ending. -

And then there is Rye........

Frazzling Rye GRASS, that is!

I am busy out in the flower beds, abandoned the pleasure of quilting for a less fun thing. Sigh, some things must be done, want to or not.

Because this is a non-brain cell event, it allows me to ponder the many things toward solving the problems of the world. It also allows me to ponder strange things...such as...gender. Yep, gender , as in male & female. (Don't get all alarmed, I always write out a tidy post! Sheesh!)

I wonder… Continue

Hand Quilting here

Morning Sweeties!

How's everyone this AM? Perking right along here, getting ready for the 2 youngest G-Grans to come over & bring over their Mom with them. It will be a busy day, to say the least! :)

I hope you know that I am quilting my fingers to the bone working on Jane Stickle. I am determined to get her done sometime in this lifetime. I am slowly making progress.

I have completed quilting 91 blocks, 22 patterned… Continue

Food for thought

"Live life fully while you're here.
Experience everything.
Take care of yourself and your friends.
Have fun, be crazy, be weird.
Go out and mess up!
You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process.
Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't
try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human."
- Anthony Robbins

Did you remember?

Did you remember to say a prayer today?
It has been 15 years today since Timothy McVeigh bombed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, costing 168 innocent people their life, not to mention the families that were changed forever. I still pray for these people & I hope you do as well.

It seems I am not alone in my failure to change blades in the rotary cutter. Who knew there were HORDES of us rumbling around?

Thanks for stopping by & leaving your notes, made me smile to know there are friends that are total NUTZ like me. Tee Hee :)

This is my wish for you:
Comfort on difficult days,
Smiles when sadness…

Tell me why...........

I have a serious problem, I think. I keep all my working tools in very good shape, I am an admitted neatness freak as in "everything has a place & I like everything in it's place", I clean up the strings & snippets as I go....

So, what is my problem, you ask? One of the most wonderful time savers we quilters were ever gifted with, my rotary cutter. Now I have an assortment of cutters cause I am a gadget lover. I have pinkers… Continue

Thank you!

Many thanks for all your sweet comments on Sunbonnet!

Sissy was beside herself that the quilt was hers. She had watched me quilt on it & she would excitedly look & talk about the "babies" on it, but I never told her it was hers. Bless her sweet heart, she sobbed & sobbed when she opened it.

She calls me at least once per day to tell me that "such & such baby" (they all have names of course! :) ) loves a certain block best. She is SO excited!

This… Continue

Sunbonnet's Journey

The Journey of Sunbonnet

I began to look for a quilt pattern for Sissy days, weeks, & months ago. One that would suit her emerging personality from a baby to a little girl. I knew I had found the perfect match in The Ultimate Sunbonnet Sue.

Sissy was born with a myriad of health problems, resulting in the loss of a kidney by 4 months of age, the upper lobe of the other kidney… Continue

Thoughts to Ponder


People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are.
I don't believe in circumstances.

The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want!

And, if they can't find them, they make them.

Good Morning!

Good Morning, Friends! I hope you are each as blessed as I feel today just because...well.. no reason needed I suppose? It is a new day to ponder what lies in store to create the perfect day! ((hugs))

If there is light in the soul,

there will be beauty in the person.

If there is beauty in the person,

there will be harmony in the house.

If there is harmony in the house,

there will be order in the nation.

If there is order…

Family Hoots

I am blessed with a large extended family! Sadly, they all live several hundred miles away.The contact is constant & the family unity is well maintained.

We were blessed with a new addition to our family (a g-great nephew to me) on Dec 29. Unfortunately, he (Hunter) decided to make his entry wayyyy early & arrived weighing in at a whooping 2 lbs 6 oz. Modern miracles prevailed ,he thrived & was able to come…

Good Morning!

A very good morning to you all! :)

I have a new day to shape & plan around on my "slate for the day". I am not sure what it will be yet...I am one of those goal setters & I work toward that each day.

Today, I might just coast along & see where the day ambles all on it's own steam. …

I am so happy to be here with you this AM. I hope you have all had the rest of a good night's ZZZZ's & ready to face the day ahead. I surely am!

Helllooo...I am almost baaaccckkkk! :)

I have been away as a paying guest in one of our local hospitals for the past week. I came home last evening to begin the slow healing process of gathering

my feet beneath me & I shall attempt the good fight to getting better.
