Let's Do Some Quilting!

I'm only going to show you a tad of Emma because I don't want to ruin the surprise to our upcoming Strip Club, but isn't she "charming"? I've been working on Emma this weekend and finally got her ready to quilt. Now I don't know about y'all but I don't do alot of quilting on my sewing machine because I have a gammill at the store but I really need to get this one done before Thursday so off to the Sapphire I go.
As you can see I'm ready to start quilting, I have my wonderful Sapphire 870, my quilting gloves, scissors and yes that's right a nice big glass of red wine. Please don't worry about the machine as the wine will be moved (or finished) before I even start to quilt but I thought I'd show you that I do practice what I teach. In my basic machine quilting class I talk about having a glass of wine to get all loose, to relax so that when you're done with your quilt your shoulders aren't touching your ears. So on the agenda for tonight is to finish the glass of wine and get to quilting on Emma and I promise that as soon as the Strip Club meets I'll post the finished picture....
Happy Quilting

A Dream

Warning...this blog post may cause some tears, but believe me, that are happy ones. I had a dream last night, and my father was in it. Now for those of you that don't know, I lost my father in 2013, and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of him. I'm sure I've had dreams about him, but they never seemed real...this one was real. Let me set the dream up for you... I was back in my hometown, Havelock North Carolina, and shopping for some type of necklace, and I hear a voice behind me "not that one, pick the blue one"... I turn around, and there was my father, I started screaming and crying, screams, and tears of joy because there was my father in the flesh. We had a nice long hug, and I asked where he had been because I knew he hadn't been around for almost a full 7 years. It seems that he had been pulled for a special mission with the government and couldn't tell any of us, including my mom. Now, speaking of my mother, she doesn

2021 = Self-Care

 2020 wasn't the best of years, it wasn't the worst, but that is behind us and I'm looking forward to 2021 that is full of blank pages. Walk with me, cook with me, read with me, craft with me...just come out and hang with me. Until Next Time Be Kind


Isn't it funny how there are certain things that can cause a major discussion...religion, politics and the weather.  Spending a good chunk of my life in Eastern North Carolina... See that little town, Havelock, yep that's where I grew up...anyway back to the weather. Ya see, growing up there I know a thing or two about humidity, to say it's thick is an understatement. The threat of hurricanes coming up the coast was an annual event and we took it in stride because that's what you do.  Snow...don't go there, when it snows everything stops, seriously, no road salt trucks, plows, what's that?  In 1989 there was a snowstorm to beat all snowstorms, poor Skip (the local weather legend) is still talking about it. Sitting on my front porch in Virginia this Sunday morning the air is so thick I can actually see it and you can almost taste it..yep it's THICK...and ya know what it feels pretty good.  But ya know what feels better, the a/c when you do walk back
