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 had this feeling for the last couple of months that I really should start blogging again. My friend, Jodi, from Pleasant Home came over yesterday. I've done some pattern testing and sewing for her and love every minute of helping.  She asked me to test her Wonky Pinwheels pattern.  I couldn't do just a couple and by the time I was done testing I had a quilt.  Love this quilt.....yellow is my favorite color.

However, yesterday she said she had linked my blog in her post. I was in shock for a minute and then said, "I haven't blogged in almost a year!" She said, "I know. After I posted I went and checked your blog." Well, I must admit, I am embarrassed but for Jodi I will do just about anything. If you haven't been following her blog.....YOU NEED TO! She is extremely talented and very nice, too. : } We had a good visit (in my sewing room which is a mess.) She mentioned that maybe something should be done with it. I told her some of my ideas and she just smiled. Maybe she has some ideas up her sleeve.

Just to let you know a little of what I have been doing other than working at the school.......we went camping last summer and had the whole family with us.
This is a more typical picture. We have a lot of fun! 

I've done some sewing for a couple of least I made my money back.
These are a couple of Shelby Mine bags. I made five. Love this pattern. Jodi asked me to make one for her blog because she was selling the pattern kit on her Etsy store. I gave her one of the ones I didn't sell for her give away. That's was started this whole embarrassing blog thing. I didn't think she would use my name. I should have known better.
I made wallets, coin purses, and pencil cases as well as sandwich wrappers. I had a lot of fun making these. My daughter helped me with the sandwich wrappers.
Just to end my post on a sunshiny note. Here is Chloe, the cat enjoying the winter sunshine. I will try to do better with my posting. Make sure you start following Jodi at Pleasant Home. Join in the Sew Scraps Along. It's fun!
