Are your feet getting cold???

Because I think Hell is freezing over!!! I have won something! Me! Granny! Yes, folks, the world must be turning on a different axis,,, the man on the moon has turned into cheese,,, and Santa has come early this year!! can I get a "Whoop Whoop???"


**********************


the Divine Miss Em at http://emsscrapbag.blogspot.com/ was given an entry to a 12 week quilting class given by Annie Smith at http://simplearts.com/blogs/ make all the blocks for this beauty.
But, life being busy, she could not accept it and she (in the kindness of her heart) offered the class as a giveaway. Boy, I wanted to win that, I have NEVER had ANY lessons on quilting, and have always done it my way, which I'm sure is the wrong way. But, alas, I lost,which did not suprise me, because I have never won a giveaway, EVER!
Mary at http://needledmom.blogspot.com/ was the lucky winner. Well, ladies, guess who got an e-mail yesterday asking if I would still like those classes?? ME! That's right, Mary was traveling and would miss the first few weeks, so she has shared!!! What a sweet heart she is!!! oh, can you tell how excited I am? In the speed of light, I was registered and classes start on Thursday!! wowzie wow wow!! I have to get a book, I have to get some fat quarters, I have to get a hold of myself! Being an "almost winner" is wonderful!

This is what we did this weekend! My brother had his yearly Fish Fry and so we played, and ate, and laughed, and ate some more!

So, now I have to go the LQS for some supplies to start the class, I'm still working on the "Blue Beast" she is soooo big, but I am half way done with the binding now, so I'll have a fresh start on the new blocks.

Never too old to learn somethig new..so go, have fun, and learn a new trick or two.

Those grandchildren look like bundles of love (and maybe a bit of mischieveness too).

May God bless you in many way.

Isn't it amazing how things all work out? Like the old Quaker song, about the "turning, turning to come out right, and finding yourself in the valley of delight". Obviously YOU were the one being favored by the Universe. I'm so very, very happy for you. Just remember to take all with a grain of salt and tucked in your heart and head, a secret, that you can still do things your way inspite of everything *VBS* If you want to.
The Fish Fly pics are adorable. Jakey is looks good, pale, but happy. Come up for air now and let us know how the class goes! Hugs, Finn on the cold side of the big pond.
