    Default Tuesday April 30th and the last day of the month. OYE!!

    What can I say today? I do so hope that Blondie and Ruth are okay. I know that Blondie is very missed here.

    Hubby is home from his vacation. He did have a wonderful trip. I slept really well the whole time he was away and last night I had a terrible sleep. What is with that?

    It is cloud covered here today. The temperature is surely climbing every day. There may be showers today. As long as the snow is over I can handle the rain.

    I have been trying to play catch-up with you all. You are all so busy little beavers.

    Have a wonderful day friends because you deserve it. SMILE while you are at it.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    Hi, yes, I echo your thoughts about Blondie and Ruth, we miss our Blondie so, but Monique you and Trish have helped us get out days started. Prayers for Ruth to recover and get back home so they can all relax a bit.

    I must say, last night's sleep was not very restful. I made some videos yesterday of how to make the serger quilt that I learned how to make at the Paducah Quilt Show. I edited them and then downloaded them to YouTube. For some reason, it took over 3 hours to upload each of them to YouTube. So I would upload, then fall asleep for a while, wake up to check on the upload progress, and finally, I just got up for good! Got them both uploaded, hopefully with correct links. I do enjoy making the videos, but the uploading process is really L-O-O-O-O-O-N-G! Know I'll be sleepy today, but I have things to do today, so sleep may have to be put off til tonight!

    Yesterday, a friend and fellow costumer asked me if she could revisit our theatre group's costume storage area for a few more items she thought we might have for her production which is starting Friday. She and I had just gone over there on Saturday night, so I had my keys to the place then. I looked and looked for the keys so we could get in, and couldn't find them. I remember them being in my jeans pocket, so I looked in the washer and the dryer thinking the jeans may have gotten washed with the keys still in the pocket. No keys. So I had to travel many miles to my other colleague who has keys to borrow hers so we could get in. When I got home, I remembered that my washer (front loader) has a big rubber flange that catches stuff, like coins, buttons, etc. Looked in there, and sure enough, there was the set of keys! Thank heavens they didn't get flushed down the drain, or get caught inside the mechanism of the washer, don't think that would have done the washer much good! And now the keys are good and clean!

    Everyone, have a great blessed day! Awesome weather here in St. Louis for today, but icky stuff is coming our way from the west, spring may not be here to stay after all!

    Good Morning,

    I have a busy day planned. I have errands to run and our grass at home to mow. Later I will be off to mow our old house in town...it's looking like it needs some TLC outdoors. One of our mowers is broke and we haven't been able to locate the part we need to repair it so we are taking turns with theold mower. I think I see a new mower in our near future.

    Jean, thanks for the videos on the serger quilts! I want to take time to watch all of them later today.

    Yes, Blondie is definitely missed when she is away...I miss her encouraging words every morning. Monique and Trish, you've done a great job filling in!!

    I need to get Jeff out the door to work....have a great day everyone.

    Hugs, Barb

    Wow, April went really fast, huh? Since we are now in the hectic schedule of comp softball season...quilting passion will suffer! Although, I do have an idea for the next one and will need to buy additional fabric (it kind of blew my mind all supplies wqas not in the fabric hoard...lol)! In fact, when I told my husband last night that I didn't quite have all the material I needed for my next project, he stated" And it begins..."....ha ha! The comp team helped host a special needs softball game last night called Exceptionals. Such a worthy cause and you tear up when you see the encouragement and the fun these austic/handicapped kids have! Very endearing to the soul!

    Good Morning Everyone. Time sure seems to fly doesn't it. I actually got some quilting done last night finally. Half completed and half to go. Then to bind, label, wash and send on it's way. Then to start on the backlog.
    Job hunting isn't going well and I'm getting nervous. What was I thinking when I decided to be a working wife and mother? My salary pays the mortgage and and bills so it's not like I can just not work now. I think it's time to consider down sizing the house though and making life a little less stressful
    Blondie and Ruth are in my prayers along with anyone else who needs them. Blessings to all and happy quilting.
    Thank you,

    Ginny K

    Monique: I can't sleep if hubby isn't in the bed. I can sleep on the couch for hours by myself though. I am glad he had a good trip. I got great news yesterday so I slept horribly like a lot of us apparetnly. I will sleep tonight, I hope. Have a wonderful day to all!

    Good Morning everyone. Slept like a log last night and just woke up a few minutes ago. Long enough to feed the cats and put the coffee pot on. Beautiful sunny morning, the bedroom window is open and the birds are singing. It is a great morning.

    DH called me last night and he is having a good time at his rendezvous. They were busy getting the camp set up. I am glad he is relaxing and having a good time.

    Another day of cleaning for me. I love having this time by myself to get the house cleaned and in order. It is suppose to rain possibly beginning tomorrow night for a few days so maybe those days will be my indoor days and I can get back to my lonely sewing machine.

    Have a great day everyone... Hugs and prayers to all.
