Memorable Quotes

Though we can never leave life without experiencing some measure of loss, grief, and pain, misery is optional--as is happiness.

Beverly Campbell

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me."

I'm back again.....finally. I finished the auction quilt for school.

I"m not the best photographer. The colors aren't quite true.

This is a little bit better but is still pretty dark.

At least you get the idea. I loved the pattern. It went together quickly. It is from Quick Quilts. I think it is this month's issue. My friend is borrowing it right now.

Here I am basting the top on the longarm. Have I mentioned how much I love to longarm. I find it to be very relaxing. Of course, I don't do fancy patterns but eventually I will expand from loops and meanderings.

Stand up straight and smile. (That's what they told me to do.) A happy Hummer (that's what I call the longarm because that is what it does) makes for a happy quilter.

The other day some of the grandkids were here...just hangin' with Aunt Wendy.

A couple of days later they were here for piano lessons but the youngest was all tuckered out. It looks like things are pretty boring at my house but, trust me, they can get pretty wild.
