Wow here I am again 2 years later. So much to tell you but so much that I don't want to bore you all with. So lets start with quilting. I haven't sewn a stitch in a year. I am currently trying to sell my longarm bc it is just sitting there. I think when my friend MJ died I just lost the joy in doing it. So I am now paper crafting and scrapbooking. I have a YouTube channel where I do share some of my creations and on Wednesdays and Sundays I do a prayer live feed. My YouTube name is Judy Evans Parker. My mom is now 86 and legally blind so I am watching over her but she is still living alone near me. I now have 11 grandkids between me and my husband. My son is working hard and my daughter is happy as always.
Here are a few pictures of my family. My son and daughter and 2 of my granddaughters are in the one picture from Thanksgiving. Another one is of my daughter and I when I took her to Disney World in Oct 2018. Another one is a dressform I created. I love the laces and trims and appliques. My mom is in a picture with my brother from our trip to Florida to see his son get married and as you can see she is happy and well in November.
Outside of that life is as normal as it gets for me. I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year 2019.
Thank you to all those who have remained followers and I hope to get busy with posting more often....God Bless
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.

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

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!
