I totally stole this from Lynn

So, my friend Lynn and I are going to a Quilt Retreat a week from Saturday weekend in Amish country.  Yeah,   A little getaway after a long couple of months.

So, I stopped by Lynn’s the other day and her awesome family had got her the most 20161019_212129_resizedawesome birthday gift to haul sewing machine and quilting supplies around.  So, I ,copied and went and got one myself.

I have to say, remembering my last retreat, where I hauled a bunch of plastic crates of stuff.  Add the fact that I have been recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.  Yup, I  needed one more thing.

This thing has room in the bottom for your sewing machine.  It has a giant case for supplies and tons of room for Fabric.  And, it is on wheels.  No lifting pulling dragging all that heavy stuff.  I bought it at Lowe’s.  $79.99, well spent.

So, My daughter, Miranda came home from the hospital.  She still can’t walk, but we are getting there.  Thanks to those that follow her Page.  Some day I will be normal again (whatever that is).

 

Happy Sewing

Happy Quilting

Progress, in several areas

Well. my hospital hexies are finally looking like something.  I feel like I have made progress.  I believe my plan will be to make a scarf for my dresser.    Seems fitting since I am the crazy dog lady.  As I type this there is one at my feel and one on the chair next to 20161003_195603_resizedme and one on my lap.  This is a great travel project because everything I need fits into my little dog bag (of course).  In my photo, you can see my Ruger.  This was my late Husbands “Hunting Dog”.  He weights six pounds and is scared of ants, so I am not sure what he would hunt.  Cute as a button though.  He is the only male dog in my herd, so he thinks any female is his.  He frequently rolls all over me as if he is making me his and then gives Kevin the evil eye.  Miss Moka’s paws are on the table where they should not be.

Other progress is with my beautiful daughter Miranda.  I think I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.  It has been six weeks now since her accident and she makes progress everyday.  I update my Miranda’s Journey page often.  It has saved me many many phone calls and texts.  Friends and family know they can go to the page and get an update on how she is doing.  We still have a long road ahead, but we will get their.  Thanks to everyone for their support.
