Come on in and have a cuppa coffee. Let's share, goof around, and giggle.
I have 8 children, 13 beautiful grandchildren, a wonderful husband, 2 of the best dogs in the world, and a sewing room, could my life be any better?
When forty winters shall besiege thy brow,
And dig deep trenches in thy beauty's field,
Thy youth's proud livery, so gaz'd on now,
Will be a tatter'd weed, of small worth held: Then being ask'd where all thy beauty lies, Where all the treasure of thy lusty days,
To say within thine own deep-sunken eyes, Were an all-eating shame and thriftless praise. How much more praise deserv'd thy beauty's use,
If thou couldst answer, 'This fair child of mine Shall sum my count, and make my old excuse,' Proving his beauty by succession thine!
This were to be new made when thou are old, And see thy blood warm when thou feel'st it cold.

I'm a Stackin'...
and I'm a Whackin'!
We are definately tired of the cold, blowing snow outside, so a little Spring inside would be great, Right? So we brought out the blooms! I got the book, Stack-N-Whackier by Bethany S. Reynolds, from our little library and it is soooooo easy!
I would love to get a triangle (like Starmaker 6) and have a whack at it,(pun intended, tee hee) But all I have are squares and rectangle, so I just made QST and...viola! I have my favorite, whaddya think?
four little opportunities to practice my quilting!
Don't look too closely, when i'm eighty years old and am perfect on the quilting, I'm going to blame all these "littles" on the grandkids ;-)
We are now in the middle of spring, and the lady bugs are going about their business!
