Ladies.....hope you had a nice weekend. Mare - did all those women trash your house? Dolores - how are your four days alone going? I'm afraid I'm going to have to take back my offer to host on Wednesday - so far there is track practice, a possible softball game, Kelly has to be picked up at Merion Mercy at 7:30 PM and we have to drop off one of the cars to be serviced on Thursday morning. OY! Stop this thing...can I get off? Just kidding.....but I was actually happy to see the rain this morning.....two softball games may be cancelled today. I know they'll be rescheduled but a little breather tonight would be nice. Sorry for the whining. Back to our regularly scheduled quilting talk - Pam - the quilt you made for Joanna was just beautiful! I like the words quilted in - what a nice idea. Lori - the towels were really cute too. The designers from Among the Gum Trees - over on the left - they're starting a week of Mother's Day gift ideas.....I'm hoping for some inspiration! Two of the four student quilts are completed, the third needs the binding sewed down and the fourth needs to be layered and quilted (I've decided to pillowcase it) - the deadline is Thursday - whew! Thanks for all your help in Lancaster picking out fabrics. Have a nice rainy day - the plants and flowers are happy! Piece......

Fabric road trip

It seems that there is a need for a trip to Sauders, Hayloft and the Windmill. We need to get Dolores off the porch, for crying out loud! Looking at May's calendar - May 8th is a possibility - that's Mother's Day weekend - a self-gift, perhaps? Or how about May 22nd? What are your thoughts? Good luck to the girls finishing up classes next week......y'all have a lovely weekend! Hope to see you out and about....piece.

A productive weekend?

Was it? It was for me - but not like last weekend - this was all sports events, mulching, grocery shopping, cooking some meals for the week and bathroom scrubbing - not nearly as much fun as last weekend. I did manage to make a pink sock monkey for my niece who is having a birthday today. Talked to Lois yesterday - so nice to hear from you, Lois! Feels like we haven 't seen you in ages. She and George saw Burkie on TV yesterday - buying the Silent Knight fom the guy around the corner - how about that! LA - you and Maureen did a fabulous job running that track meet yesterday! Dolores - are you still sitting on the porch? Mare and Cath - coming to the semester's end - thinking of both of you. Hang in there.....Pam - you must be glad it's Monday. Your countdown is on too! Lori - those contractors finished yet? Sorry I can't host this week - a crazy, busy week culminating in Confirmation on Saturday. Next week - put it on your calendars - I'll host on Wednesday - we can't let another week go by......have a good day, ladies. Take a few minutes for yourself....piece.

Make it so...

Girls.....looked at the fall calendar last night. Anyone have any life-changing events scheduled for the weekend of November 5-6-7? After Halloween, before Thanksgiving....a good time to get some Christmas gifts started/finished. We need to start a new counter......let me know your thoughts, ok? Piece.....
