Another fine day

It is cold and the sky is a beautiful blue this morning.  Don and I are enjoying time with my youngest son and his family this week.  And wonder of wonders, I didn't bring anything to sew.  We are just enjoying family and each other.  Last week I did find some QOV suitable fabrics on sale and bought enough for several quilts.  The local shops are having great sales but I'm trying to restrain  myself, ha ha.
I sincerely hope my friends are having great family times!!!

Cold and cold

This damp Kansas cold goes right through to the bone, lol.  I bought a new winter coat for church as the one I had was way too big.  Also had to buy some new clothes as the ones I had, especially the pants were too big as well.
Spent the day working on Christmas presents otherwise.  Also found some patriotic fabric for half price, so have some different fabs for the next QOV.

Another great day

Spent most of yesterday with the "Queen Bees", a small group of the Prairie Quilt Guild.  There are many "bee" groups within the guild.  Since PQG is so large, the small bees are the best way to get acquainted and make friends. 
Will be busy working on Christmas presents today.  It is supposed to be rainy and cold, so a day sewing with fit the bill.

A great Sunday

It has been a busy day.  Went to church, grabbed a quick sandwich and headed for the quilt shop in Derby.  Met with the other Farmers Wife Sampler class members and enjoyed a happy afternoon.  Returned home in a light rain.  My wonderful husband fixed dinner for us.  Then got all my blocks cut for a Quilt of Valor.   Now to start sewing them together.

Lots of things going on.

I'm working on my first Quilt of Valor in memory of my daughter, Seaman Elisabeth M. Bombe, GSMFA, 11/29/83 - 11/4/07.
And also trying to get some blocks done for the meeting of the Farmers Wife Sample group tomorrow afternoon.  Am behinder than last week, lol.
And I found a wonderful Singer 431G sewing machine in a pawn shop yesterday.  Had no power cord, so got it for a song.  Now it is working wonderfully and I may take it to the group tomorrow.

It's a great day!!!

So far, so good.  Created my first blog, even managed to sign up to follow a blog, lol.  Quilt guild is today and that is enjoyable.  Many members in the Prairie Quilt Guild in Wichita, KS.  Also will be starting a QOV quilt-a-long this Thursday, Veterans Day. I'm doing this in honor and rememberance of my daughter, Liz, United States Navy, 11/29/83 - 11/4/07.
