Not a tough pattern, but I do love the look. Plan to spend the day working on this one. If I should get bored with it, there are many, many UFO's around to switch things up. LOL! Oh...and my BFF, Patti, is having a giveaway! Head over and leave her a comment! Although, I have seen a few items she's including, I may not want her getting new entries!

Miss me? It's been a while....

Yeah....I could come up with loads of reasons why I haven't posted, but ... nah! I just haven't. But thanks to Patti, I think I'll be giving it a new place in my life. Maybe not every day, but once a week or so. I do miss having some place to save my progress and pics of projects I'm working on. Patti and I took a class from Edyta Sitar a while back and I'm currently working on a Dresden Star (with a twist) that she designed. Yep, I changed it up a bit with sashing and stars, but I have loved making these blocks.
See ya soon!

Sad day

My friend, Val, has been called home. I am sure she is planning some sort of event and you can all rest easy that she'll have Heaven whipped into shape by the time we get there. I miss her already.

Prayers please....

I know it's been a long, long time since I've posted on here. If any of you remember, my friend, Val, has been fighting cancer for a long time. The cancer has now been found in her brain and liver. Hospice has been called in and they don't expect her to survive more than a couple of months. Also, they expect the cancer to cause her cognitive skills to be gone within two or three weeks. This was told to us last week. I would appreciate prayers for her to be at peace. If you could throw one in for me to say the right things to her, I could use that. Thanks in advance.

On the good side, if there is one, we took our Sunday night church service to her house last Sunday. It was one of the most healing and wonderful moments I have ever been a part of. We sang songs of praise and Val was able to have the Lords' supper. It was a very moving time with some laughing, crying and every emotion in between. I think many of us needed us and it helped make a lot of things clearer.

Hugs to you all!

Current project....

It's been a busy, busy winter. Blogging took a back seat to everything else that I wanted to do. I thought I would miss it more, but the time I had to spend blogging, I used to sew instead. I still read others blogs and enjoyed them with my morning coffee. Heading out to WI for our yearly quilt retreat on the 30th. I can't decide what to take as usual, but I have 10 days to decide or to buy more. Can't wait to see the Jens and the rest of the gang. Looking forward to some fun!

I know life is busy for everyone, but RUN to the voting booth and VOTE! Get out there! Vote! Be a part of your own future! And...the other benefit? I'm hoping this end the mailers, commercials, recorded phone messages, etc.! Yay!

On the quilty front....making bags. And more bags. And a few more bags. My friend Vals' Mother is not well and needs some crafty person to take one of her tables at an upcoming craft show. Sew...I'm making bags of all sizes, shapes and colors. Hope I have enough to fill a table. I still have about 10 days to make more, but I am going to the cabin this weekend. With my husband. Just the two of us. I wonder if we still have anything to talk about. Or anything in common. We don't spend time alone together anymore. Looking forward to it. Wooohooooo!

And...I'm gone. Groomer coming today to make the babies look all pretty for winter. Happy Voting Day!
