Surrounded by Love
Love of some of my life's work:
My mother wanted each of her daughters to have a place for the family china...It was so hard for her to get used to quilts instead. Dear mother, As I have been quilting since college, I need another hutch...please..
Next love is my new electric Accuquilt...So much fun! I got the bowl die the other day. So far I have made these two bowls and have 4 more all ready to top stitch. Today was a teacher work day. Since the children were home, I asked them to come down and choose fabric for their own bowls...They are actually excited about it.

I Planned my Life Today, Instead.........
The cleaning ladies came and I went to the deck for a lovely nap. Sleeping away, my chair fell thru an unknown rotten piece in the wood. Over went
Grandma....boom!!! It took two ladies and the man next door to get me up. This left me dazed, but nothing broken and my plan for pool was dashed.
All I want is a big package of double stuffed Oreos.

One Scrappy Day
The beginning of my pink "X" quilt :
Working with left over scrap HSTs from 5 years ago...Experimenting...
Today was one scrappy day...First St.Sherry took me on a much needed errand run. Awesome company too!! Always happy with a great nap. A helpful visit from my DIL. Off went Dylan with his mother for the weekend.
The teenager in this household will be going on an Honor Drama competition tomorrow bright and early. As, tonight it is just my Lynsey and me, Grandma was thinking time together or a card game....Crazy crazy Grandma....Up to her room went the 13 year old with her phone with her new boyfriend's phone number and her dinner.
At first I was OK with that, then Pearl's cousin, Debbie....Debbie Downer came by.
I called a few friends, made a new gratitude list and started sewing PHEW...I kicked her under the rug!!
Now..the real gift: Our Aoife on a walk. Showing off her whispy white Dineen hair. Adorable.
Taking Pig along for the walk!!
