Hello

Hello Again,

Seems like my good intentions of writing more often didn't pan out. Things are running smoothly in my household and I really do like that. I actually have been working on Katie's quilt and also finally learning my embroidery machine (bout time on that thing). I was able to get away to Ohio in March for one of my granddaughters wedding and  it was so good to see so many of my Ohio family at that time. I also just returned from Grand Chapter for Eastern Star that was held in St. Augustine. I was honored to receive the chairmanship of the Cancer Fund for our State, This means so much to me as I feel so strongly after so many of  my family have passed away from this dreaded  disease. Now we are almost to the big graduation day for Faith and  she will be off to college. Wow where has the years gone, Ray and I have watched her from the beginning and he would be so proud of his BABY GIRL, that is all he ever called her, never used her name. I hope all of you are doing well and staying busy with your projects. Till next time and I hope it won't be so long.. Hugs, Marie

Happy New Year

I wish for all my sweet friends and family many blessings for this year. I sure hope to get more work completed in the Sewing Studio. I completed a really neat fall quilt and have tried to post pictures  but can't get them to download, will have to wait till my sweet son-in-law is here. Things have been moving right along here at my home, had the new fence installed , sprinklers put in, popcorn ceiling taken down and ceilings are beautifully completed. Our weather has been very warm, I am not complaining since I saw the weather up North. Hope every one had the best Christmas and all will be good for them. On a nice note, I have been seeing an old friend of ours for a few months and we have really enjoyed each others company. My daughter has invited us to go on a Valentine Cruise with them and we are going to do just that! I am excited, I know in my heart that Ray would not want me to sit home and be sad, it is something we had talked about a lot and my kids are happy for me so we will see how this part of my life pans out. And the greatest thing is he has learned to sew and has already made his first quilt .Until  next time many hugs to all. Marie
