Happy Sunday!

Hello, Mamas. How is everyone? The Griswolds have landed safely back in H-town. Thank goodness. Can't wait to hear the stories - don't think I can wait for the movie. I stopped by Mare's the other afternoon and baby Kevin was there....what a cutie patootie!!!! Glad he's feeling better. Speaking of Mare's baby - she's taking Jimmy back to school on Tuesday. Miss Kerry is also heading to Saint Joe's on Tuesday. Good luck to both families....I have a feeling Mike is going to be harder to handle than Kerry. Cath is feeling much better - whew, what a week! Pam is heading back to Bryn Mawr at nights this week.....good luck, Pam. I'm going to host on Thursday night - so we can catch up. Also - the swim (or not) and sew is next Sunday - one week from today - so we can talk about what we're doing. LA & Lori - what's going on in your part of Havertown? Lois - how are you and George doing? Is he feeling better? Dolores - I ran into Joe Byrnes this morning.....he said he has to have rotator cuff surgery in about two weeks and has to be IMMOBILIZED for 6 weeks - that means staying home, not able to do anything....OY!!! I think I speak for all the Quiltmamas in wishing you both luck - and offering you refuge at any time - day or night - during those ensuing 6 weeks. He doesn't seem like he's going to be a good patient. The prayers will commence immediately. I had to go to Lancaster yesterday - to get volleyball gear. No sense wasting the trip - so we stopped at the Country Quilt shop and Zook's. I bought my first layer cake - yay! I've been waiting for this fabric - it's called Happy - and it is. I cleaned up my sewing room last week - recycled some old books, threw out some junk and just generally tidied up. True story - I found a pair of jeans that I bought - has to be two years ago now - I think it was when I was getting ready for Houston. They needed to be hemmed.....I hate hemming. If you haven't noticed, I'm not very tall - so I have to hem a lot! So there they were - still waiting. I put them on the top of the pile. A few nights later, Erin came in while I was sewing and asked about them.......I told her to try them on. They fit her - and they don't need to be hemmed! So now their hers - that's how much I hate hemming. The end. Wishing you all a lovely week......Burkie is away sailing this week - that means pancakes for dinner and all the seats are down! Hope to see y'all on Thursday......piece.

** Dolores - over 11 million stitches on Gracie in less than three are headed for the Bernina Hall of Fame!!!!

Hi 'Mamas...sorry I have been so out of touch...I have been thinking of you all. Everyone here is fine...nothing new to report. Looking forward to Thursday! Good luck to Kerry D. tomorrow! Glad Cathy and baby Kevin are doing much better. Can't wait to hear about the Henderson Road Trip! Dolores...all I can say is good luck...let me know if you want to borrow Sean so that you have someone in the house to laugh at Joe's jokes while he is recovering! Pam, hope things are continuing to work out for you guys! Lori, it was good to see you for the first time this summer at church on Sunday. Jean, I love that story of the "Lost Jeans"...hope you are enjoying girls week in your house. Lois, you and your family are in our thoughts! Hope to see you girls on Thursday and Sunday! Love, LA

Hey ladies--I was hoping to catch up with everyone this week since we are home for an OHara camp that Lindsay and John are doing, BUT I think I got the days confused. I thought was WEd. and I just made plans for Thurs night so I won't bee there for bee. Post and let me know what is going on for Sunday. I will probably go to the shore on fri. early afternoon, but am planning on driving up for Sunday.

Jean-I'm jealous you went to Lancaster! Congrats to Erin!
Dolores-you're welcome to come down the shore to get away!!!!!

Hey everyone, I'm sorry to say I can't make it on Thursday night, I have signed up for Boot Camp on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I need to whip this body back into some other shape than blob shape. I miss everyone, and seriously I am not looking forward to have JOE BYRNES laid up at home for six months, it looks like I will finally have to leave the house. Good luck to all the College people, very exciting. I hope to see everyone on Sunday at Mo's.
