Busy Calendar

My daily calendar has been clogged with so many events. I wonder how I ever had time to go to work before retirement. I will only show a few at this point.

January 3, 2009 was the Creative Beading with Fabric class by Missy and her daughter at Laura's Sewing and Vacuum (oh oh I've been spelling that wrong for years). We had such fun and learned so much from the class and from the show and tell. It is always an exciting time at Laura's in Palm Beach Gardens. Laura and Dave are great people.

January 10, 2009 was the quilt guild meeting. We are missing our president Rebecca Winters who passed Dec. 23, 2008. The meeting was a good one. I show a picture of one of our show and tell quilts. Patti, my best friend, was there also.

I finally finished the Tie bag (made out of just one tie). For the directions (difficulty for me) I studied it, I measured it numerous times, cut it, pinned it, worried about it, and finally sewed it (I've had the pattern since 10 07). One of my UFO's is DONE!

Daddy is still hanging in there. He's 92 and having a time getting back to strength, but his sense of humor and that laugh are marvelous. My sister Bonnie keeps me updated. However, they have had the kind of snow, ice, and cold I remember yearly growing up there (IL). I helped celebrate Edna Hibel's 92nd Sunday, but will have to save that for later with pictures.

Whoops the pictures aren't in order, Patti and the quilt guild should be together. The bag is last. Laura's Creative Class with Miss and daughter should have been first. They published out of sequence. Still trying to get the hang of everything.

Be healthy, wise and happy in the new year. God Bless.

Thank you for visiting,
