It was another nice sunny day as I went off to visit the last store of the Shop Hop and get my pattern.....I even took the dog along because I was only going to stop at the one store with no shopping involved. On the way home we even stopped at... Read more

These long days with mom in the car are trying to say the least. But having lunch with 6 cousins and I'm the baby is the fun part of the day. But it's a long drive to where my aunt lives. Takes about 1 hr & 20 min. each way. There were... Read more

At least today was sunny after 3 days of rain. But I still didn't have any energy or feel like putting things in order. I did manage to get done what needed to be done. There is an orange angel food cake to take to cousin lunch tomorrow and I... Read more

This was one of the hardest quilts I've tried. But I think it turned out great. While I was driving around today because there is a Shop Hop going on. It means that 9 quilt stores are each giving you 4 pieces of fabric and a runner pattern an... Read more

That quilt was a challenge. I made lots of mistakes but no one seems to care and I'm really glad we don't have any rules in quilting because I probably... Read more

i finished putting the borders on the quilt early this morning. And then I realized the quilt is not even 6' high. Needs to be closer to 84". So I go back to bed at about 8 to think on the matter. When I woke up again at almost 10 I had form... Read more

I almost didn't even go to guild lunch today because I wasn't sure I wouldn't melt down in front of people. But I went and enjoyed a nice lunch and was even included in some of the conversation. The ladies always say hi and they have all known... Read more

I really need a break from mom. Yesterday she just didn't feel good and today when I went to check on her she said she'd choked on a piece of meat at lunch and they almost had to call 911. But she recovered and just wanted to sleep. She looke... Read more
