Holy Smoly....I didn't realize I hadn't posted in 2 years. I see I have some of you that have stuck by me...thanks...I apologize for being a blog slacker. So much has happened in the last 2 years. We have added 2 more grandchildren to our mix. Of course both are girls. I lost a dear friend of mine Mary Jane.. Miss her terribly. I have been doing a lot of applique quilts. I will post pictures if I have them. We also bought a second home in Kingsland Georgia to spend our winter months. I can't take this cold weather anymore. I will post that picture too. My mom is doing well ready to turn 84 years old next week. So since this is my first post in ages I will keep it brief but know I am still hanging in there and I would love to hear what all of you are doing
Well another year has come and I am just getting around to blogging. This year started off rough but hoping after this week we will onto brighter days. My Father in Law passed away shortly after we returned from our trip to see our grandkids in Georgia. We came back the end of January both of us sick. A week later he passed away. Just glad we were already home and not having to rush back in the weather we were traveling in. Wed we will finally bury his body. It was too frozen in Feb.
Anyway in the way of quilting and my world I have been very busy with a lot of UFO clean ups but I thought for something different I would share some recipes with all of you too.
Most of you may not know how much I love to cook and try new recipes so here is my first one to share I found on facebook . Try it out and tell me what you think. I hope to be back with you in a week or two. God Bless and please don't give up on me I will someday get the hang of blogging more often.
Creamy Bowtie and Asparagus Pasta (aka Anniversary Pasta)
Good Afternoon...Today in my part of NY state it is a warm and sunny fall days. The leaves are changing very quickly here so they won't be around much longer. We have had a lot of frosty nights already. Anyway I thought since I haven't add much to my blog lately I would share with you another wallhanging I did. It is completely out of thread. It is embroidered in my embroidery machine (gotta love my Bernina 830). The design is from Anita Gooddesigns. It is individual blocks all put together at the end. I love making this wallhangings. They are a lot of fun. I hope this day finds you all well and warm. We are getting ready to head to Georgia soon to see the grandkids. I wish we could stay longer but I will take the week we have and enjoy the sunshine and warm weather. I will be sharing more of my projects with you...I have been taking pictures lately so I can share. What are you all working on. Please share. Have a Great Day!!! Hugs

Here is my FRIENDS Swap I received from Joann. This year was a little tougher with me having sick parents and Joann being sick a couple days. I forgot to take a picture of the things that I sent to Joann but I embroidered her 2 tea towels with Roosters on them because she said her kitchen is roosters. The funny part was alot of the ladies at the quilt shop wanted to know if I would embroider some for them...my answet "NO"...heheheh..anyway here is what Joann came up with on the swap..as most of you know from my past years you have to spell the word FRIENDS with your gifts
F - Fat Quarters
R - Rotary Blade, Ribbon
I - Inspirational book
E - Emery boards (she didn't know I don't have any nails but I can use them on my daughter) heheheh
N - Notebook
D - She was unable to think of anything
S - Sewing project which is the Scarecrow underneath the gifts
Thank you Joann for being my partner this year. I hope you enjoyed all the wonderful gifts I sent you and that you will have hours of fun with all the handwork projects.
I hope my Post today finds everyone well. I have been a very busy girl and will try to post more often although I keep saying that and always forget. Have a great day and may God bless all the you do today...Blessings
I am married to a wonderful man. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. My oldest son Billy, was killed in Iraq in Sept 2005 and watches over me with his Lord. My youngest son is a very fine young man with 3 children. He is a great dad. His girls come first. My daughter is autistic. She's as fun as any 8 year old, so what if she's 31. I have 3 grandchildren and 3 step grandchildren. I love quilting, machine embroidery, traveling and having fun. My goal each day is to make someone smile. I hope today that will be you!
