I have discovered many things in the past 12 months:
-Pajama days are highly under-rated
-I have more projects (and fabric) than I will be able to finish in my lifetime
-Quilting buddies can get you in A LOT of trouble
-Laughing is contagious, road trips with friends are the best
-There are so many talented people in Gwinnett Co. and they share and encourage freely
-Guild, workshops and retreats are addictive
-When you leave the house, it will probably end up costing $100
-It doesn't matter what you look like in a bathing suit
All in all, I am in love with my new life style. I have the time to do what I want to do. I have the time to enjoy my granddaughters. I have time to smell the flowers and reflect on how I am so blessed.
And on a side note: Spooky and Wild Willie seem to enjoy having me around more.

I've decided that I am done with Facebook. Lately all there has been is stuff copied from Pinterest and ads. I am tired of people and their rants and raves as well. Maybe I will look at the cat pictures-really don't want to give those up.

I do love a mystery and this weekend at Thimbles, Pat introduced the new mystery quilt. I am excited!! I will be doing it in light gray and hot pink.
It is a very gray day here in the ATL. I have managed to clean up and get dressed. Just may be all that I get accomplished today.

Spooky felt the need to assist me this morning in fabric selection for this block. I guess he did not approve of my choice, as I ended up with a small scratch on my finger!
Yesterday at the senior center I worked on disappearing four patches. This is one possibility. And I have the blue/gold half square triangles too. Decisions, decisions! We had a spirited and often hilarious discussion yesterday of non-quilt related topics. I think the powers that be may be sorry they moved this rowdy bunch up to the front of the building It is good to laugh yourself silly at times!
Emma and I are going to have a sleepover tonight as Sarah is off camping with the girl scouts. I wonder what Emma has up her sleeve to do!!! I know it will involve french fries anyway.

Now it is confession time......this past Sunday I went to have something to eat with my friend Sarah. I arrived first. I told the waitress that I was meeting a friend who had short, red curly hair. Sarah does not have red hair and never has. What was I thinking??? I attribute the booboo to the over abundance of rain lately!!
