I'm learning to Applique : )

I have decided to learn something new. Last Wed I had my first lesson in Applique and I think I'm going to like it. At the Senior Center on Wed mornings we are starting a new quilt. The blocks are all appliqued flowers (of a sort) and I'm working on one of them. I think I did pretty good. My stitches are a little big, but that will improve with time and practice. On Fri., Sept 10th I will be joining an applique group and I intend to start a set of Sunbonnet Sue and Overall Bill wall hangings. I have good intentions. Now, I wondering how far I will get with this project.

I had AJ today. We had a good, but quiet day. All we did was sit and watch TV. That is really unusual for us. I am feeling a little blue this evening. It was one month ago tonight that Tony passed away.

I'm about ready to get in bed. Tomorrow is another work day at JoAnn Fabrics. I'm getting in lots of hours lately and that is good.
Good night

My Life Has Changed

There have been some big changes in my life. Three weeks ago tonight on July 14th my dear husband, Tony, passed away. He was 85 years old and had been sick since Jan. of '09. I know he is at peace, so it is alright. I know I will be alright in time. I have several close friends who know how I am feeling. The photo is the last one taken of us together. The child is our only grandchild, Anthony.
I am back to quilting at the Senior Center on Wed. mornings and I went back to work at JoAnn Fabrics last Sunday.

Today was another busy day. I went quilting this morning and I finished tieing the log cabin quilt. I will post a photo tomorrow. I came home and proceeded to unclog Tony's paper shredder. I did it and it is working now. Next I tried to figure out why the sound isn't working on the CD player and tape player in the entertainment center. I found two unplugged plugs, but I can't find where to plug them in. Will I figure it out before TR gets time to look at it for me??? Then I went to work at JoAnn Fabrics this evening. I am about ready to get in bed. AJ will be here in the morning. Good night...
