Oh, now I have gone over the edge

                                                            Sign starts 09-26 and Ends Oct 14th    and I signed up for this one too.  I am going to be so productive.  And when I am productive I feel good about myself.

I am beyond myself with giddiness

Swap is Closed YEP that's right I am in and I am so excited.  I tried to use other terms but I can't spell them so I'll just be excited for now.

Wonderful Weekend in Ga.

Today I am posting a pic of the wallhanging/table runner I have been working with.  It was so simple and so easily put together. 
   Also, I finally bit the bullet and signed up for APP's Halloween swap.   It includes a tote and a mug rug and some non sewn items.  I love her swaps.  I has some oh so lovely vests I had hand quilted but never gotten around to sewing together.  What me with UFOs?  So yesterday I got the rotary cutter and started cutting.  I never could understand how those quilters could whack up a beautiful thing to create something else but yesterday I found it quite easy.  I had a purpose for it to be something else so it was cut into pieces with no regrets.  
   Rick and I may be facng a huge life change.  Pray for wisdom in our choices, please.

Today is Thursday

Today is Thursday, September 22nd.  Thirty five years ago today I gave birth to my 2nd child, Serenity Patrice.  She is as pretty as her name, although the name hardly fits her for she is far from serene.  She is and always has been so full of life.  Happy Birthday sweet Serenity; you are and always have been my afternoon delight.
   Also, today is my MIL 75th birthday.  God has blessed me by having her son as my husband and her as my MIL.  Happy Birthday Maxine in Finger Tn.

Hurray and I am not techy

Rick is feeling so much better. We had a marvelous weekend until he (as usual) overdid activities and his tummy was in pain.  Me, on the other hand caught a tummy bug and was sick Sunday and Monday.  Before I was totally into the bug however I cleaned our room. I will admit I am a collector of magazines and stuff (hoarding is such a negative word) so I cleaned off every flat surface and dicovered killer dust bunnies under the furniture.
  On the other topic of me being technically challenged...  This blog is so frustrating!  I want to do it right so it is fun and normally I can read the directions and achieve the desired results but on this thing I sit here, read the how to do it and say HUH?  or that button is not on my blog.
   I started a wall hanging/table topper last week.  It is turning out very good because I am being very diligent on making sure of the seam widths.  What a difference that makes.   Also, I found a sew along quilt project ( to the right) and I really want a sew along because of my competitive nature I seem to get a project done in a decent amount of time.
