I have not been able to load pictures for several months and just got a new computer set up tonight so trying it out.

This is a picture of Teigan last May at Pre K graduation.  She was 4.

Found in magazine years ago

This day is a treasure!

Today doesn't have to be a birthday or an anniversary or a holiday to be special.  All days are born that way!  In fact, there's no such thing as an ordinary day, because each and every one comes with unlimited potential.  Today isn't just any day.  It's your day.

I am here

I have been busy sewing a few things.  Made some burp rags and washcloths for a baby shower.  I hemmed 7 t-shirts for a friend, took some pants in for myself, and fixed the cuffs on a shirt I got at Goodwill.  Put elastic in.

Was off 4 days but was nice to just chill alittle.  And I had such big plans to accomplish alot!!!

Tonight at our sewing guild--club we made fabric postcards.  Kinda neat.  I have seen them on sites but never tried them.  It was the 3rd meeting for it and I missed the first month.  Kinda interesting.  I took a quilt that my great aunt made in 1936 when she was 16. Sun Bonnett Sue.  She is still alive and then I took a scrap bow tie quilt that my gma hand sewed together and then hand quilted.  The squares are about 2 or 3".

August it is!

Cannot believe that we are to another August!!!

Start of summer brings list of to dos and hopes of getting it done---then it is fall and you see what isn't done!

We have made head way on a few things BUT lots more to go.  Not enough time.  Husband has been retired a couple years now but seems he is busier than before.  I still work.

At this time of year I really do start thinking Christmas more when shopping, the treats to make, games to play and the such.
