It has been a while since I have posted any comments. Time flies. Today would have been my dad's 90th birthday - he had always wanted to live until 100, but his Parkinson's disease, broken hip and pnuemonia got the best of him last year. I have had him on my mind today as I prepared for a garage sale tomorrow morning. I still miss him and sometimes still remember him when he was humming a tune, plucking on his guitar or out in the back yard enjoying the sun.
I found some of dad's old clothes that we still had, which I will sell along with a myriad of other items. It feels good to collect all the items that continue to stack up in our lives and never get used. I am selling children's books, novels, children's videos and some old music albums. The proceeds from these items will be donated to the American Cancer Relay For Life event we have in May. Also have many other odds and ends to sell. What does not sell will go to the Salvation Army or AmVets, who collect clothing and furniture as well.
This week I made great strides in getting some of my UFO's quilted. I took two quilt tops to a member of the Quilter's Guild who has a long arm machine. I am looking forward to seeing them finished. The Quilt Guild in my community has several quilters with machines and I hope to engage all of them to help me get my large quilts finished. In the mean time I am starting on some new projects!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ALL OCTOBER BIRTHDAY FOLKS. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND, COLUMBUS DAY IN THE USA AND THANKSGIVING DAY IN CANADA.
