What’s In Store for 2018?

What a loaded question! I think it's so funny that we get all excited about turning over a calendar page when in reality it's really just another day...but I have to confess I get caught up in the idea of new beginnings! Somehow just the thought is stimulating, exciting, so much anticipation and imagination. Possibilities are indeed… Continue reading What’s In Store for 2018?

Friends and Fabric

I get by with a little help from my friends! Especially quilting friends. Today my friend Dianne took a day off of work and brought her granddaughter Beyonca over to help me sort and organize my quilts and fabrics for storage. These are items that had previously been dispursed post-Harvey and taken by "quilt angels"… Continue reading Friends and Fabric

The day after Christmas marks the official "beginning to move out" process. We have a week until Repipe Specialist come to replace our old galvanized pipes.

As everyone is enjoying their time with family I wanted to share a special thought for our service men and women, many of whom are not celebrating today with their families due to deployment. Words can not express my gratitude for their service and sacrifices for our country and my freedom. I wanted to share… Continue reading Special Christmas Thoughts and Prayers for our Military Families

My 2017 According to Instagram

Today is day 22 of the 31-day blog writing challenge and I really couldn't think of anything to ramble about besides Christmas quilts, or going out to lunch with my daughter-in-law yesterday - not that these events aren't significant- I just neglected to take photos yesterday... Ah, but I've got a whole year of photos… Continue reading My 2017 According to Instagram
