Today was a perfect day. The temp was in the low 80's and the sun was shining all day. I went to mass this morning and stopped at Barnes & Nobel on the way home. I got myself another Suduko (? sp) book. I left my other one on the plane when I was coming home from vacation last month. Bummer... Tomorrow I have a class at the LQS. I will be making a red & off white Serged Log Cabin table topper. I got all my strips cut this evening and I think I'm ready to go. Now I have to pack my serger and get it in the car. Last night I got myself involved with Pinterest. That was a mistake??? I spend far to much time messing around on it. I found lots of interesting stuff, but will I ever do anything with it??? Who can say??? OK...How do I add a photo???

Can you believe it has been almost seven (yes, 7) months since I last posted. Where did the time go???. Let's see - what have I been doing?? Since I last posted I went on a Quilting Weekend the end of Jan.. Had a great time as usual. I spent a lot of time working at JoAnn Fabrics. I love that job. The people (both co-workers and guests) are wonderful. We had a very mild winter. Very little snow and unusually warm temps. If I wasn't at JoAnn's working, you could usually find me at the "LQS" (Grandmother's Thimble) working on some project or another. Very exciting stuff. I learned a lot more about my "Version 6" and "Cut Work" software that goes with my Bernina machine. July came and I went out to Nev and Calif to visit kids, grandkids, and g-grandkids. I had a good time, but I was having difficulty walking. For some reason the muscels in my legs tightened up and caused a lot of pain and agrivation(? sp). That has cleared up by now. NOW for the SHOCKER. I found a lump in my breast the Sat. before I came home on Tues.. Saw my family Dr on Wed. followed by seeing a specialist shortly after. "Yes" it is cancer. I am now going for various tests getting ready for surgery. So far no date has been set. I am doing OK. I AM going to get through this and I AM going to be fine. I am to busy for this nonsence. I have a quilting weekend in Oct., an "Anita Gooddesign" event in Nov., and another quilting weekend in Jan., plus several quilt/software classes lined up. I am asking for prayers. "Please and thank you" in advance. I think that pretty much updates my activities for the past 7 months. I want to go sew and watch a little TV before I get in bed. Good night and sweet dreams, Everyone...
