So good to hear Bill is doing well!  

 

Nana, I haven't finished my first scarf yet!!  You go girl. I am totally impressed!!!  TODAY, a friend Delivered a pattern to me that makes a shawl that I fell in love with last fall  that another friend was wearing.....unfortunately, it was not a crocheted pattern like I was told  but a knitted pattern!  Ugh!  So, lets see taxes and cutting out MQ8 has gone to the sidelines.....to the store to purchase more yarn.....and I said NO more hobbies.....back home and....... learning  to cast on....knit.....purl....something over......and purl 2 together.....I've done 3 rows 3 times and  ripped it out again......But, I am doing it......and I will start all over again .....thank you Nana and thank you Beth..I THINK!!...I will model for you if I get her done!!  Am leaving for FL with nine  High school  Seniors so will be taking scarf and shaw project with me!!  Probably won't get a chance tomorrow as I really am going to have to pack.....oh I still have Friday morning to pack!! Lol 

Carla, I looked at my white elephant book again ...can't wait to do something in it........and elephants.....Drew an elephant today made a stencil and am marking them for a border to quilt on a baby quilt.  SO, Did get a tiny bit of quilting ....I'd like to finish it  before I leave but those dad burned  taxes probably won't allow it......

 Goodnight ladies... Sure do miss all of you!!

I am not sure RuthAnn ever slept.  She may have went to her room but I think she just replaced her Energizer batteries and kept bouncing like Tigger.   I have never seen such perpetual motion in one person before.   Wore me out just watching her....LOL>    Wish I had half that much energy.    Love ya RuthAnn.

I feel a need to go fabric shopping, but with 4 projects currently in the works and the MQ8 still to cut out, I keep trying to talk myself out of it.  I managed to add one more row to the embroidered flower quilt, but that is all I have accomplished since I have been home.  

Gini, I really want to applique some flowers for the border on my Birthday Block Quilt but haven't really come up with any good ideas yet...I;ve started one flower but my hands are hurting so bad (well really my wrist from my tree trimming yesterday) that I don't think that today will be the day to work on it.

I think maybe a trip to the fabric store will lift my spirits.  I've been feeling kind of sluggish since the trip, must be a let down after all of the travel and good companionship.

back home and....... learning  to cast on....knit.....purl....something over......and purl 2 together.....I've done 3 rows 3 times and  ripped it out again....

I always say it's so fun to get to know people at retreats because then as we post online, I can "hear" the individual voices.  Boy, can I hear yours, Ruth Ann!  And see you!  What a ball of fire you are!  Have fun!

Someone who cranks out projects at the rate you do should probably go fabric shopping at least once a week!  Go for it!  And don't forget to post pictures!

Beth Weigt:

Bill is doing great.  Although in pain, he went downstairs today to putter on his train layout.  I have been sewing bindings on things I had in a pile to do and I have been in my sewing room:)

Glad life is returning to normal for you!  After this week of sheltering the homeless at our church, I hope to get back into the sewing room, too.

Looking forward to meeting Bill someday!

Just reading all the posts from everyone makes me long to see all your lovely faces. I have been in the same slump as Barbara. I think it is our gloomy weather. Ruth Ann puts me to shame with all her energy. I need some of that. But Nancy comes in at a close second! And Gini is another one that never sleeps! Isn't,t she the one that said you can sleep when you're dead? I love you all.
