Ahh, trying to figure out how to post some pics here on this blog. Just wish I were not so computer illiterate. I'm just going to have to try to pin my daughter down to helping me with this. I wanted to post some of the quilts that I have completed but I have had no luck.

Today I will try to work some more on a pumpkin/fall tablerunner that I've been doing .looks like it won't get much use in 08. I had used an unused flannel cover as the batting and it just didn't go together well so I had to take it out. I would post a pic but as you know I don't have that figured out yet. I am also helping my daughter with a Halloween costume...hey I guess she owes me some time .LOL I'm not feeling real energetic today as I spent my day yesterday getting ready for a birthday supper for my oldest daughter.

Anyone seen Nights in Rondanthe? I went to see it on the weekend. It was pretty good...well I think any thing Richard Gere does is wonderful. He is my all time favorite actor. I did prefer the book though. I think I always do...I guess I just feel like that I know the characters better through a book. I like Nicholas Sparks books, especially at times in my life when I am unable to focus on anything too deep. And it seems I've had lots of these days in my past year.

Another nice giveaway going on. The Pumpkin Patch Primitives Quilt Shoppe is having a Halloween giveaway. Drawing is hurry up and get over there.

Another Giveaway

Another great giveaway! Michelle at Michelle's Quilts and Stuff is having a giveaway to celebrate her birthday.She's giving away 13 patterns from the Pearl Louise Designs Banner of the Month club.


Elizabeth , over at Pigtails and Snails is having a giveaway. And she's giving away a quilt. A Quilt! Can you believe it! What a wonderful, generous giveaway. Now even though I want that quilt myself badly I'm going to send you on over there to have a chance at it.

First Blog.

This is my first post, even though I started this blog some time ago. I'm just fumbling my way through...this computer stuff really confuses me at times. Just wait till I try to post some pics. I am mom to three daughters and trying to pick up the pieces of my life after finding myself suddenly single after 28 years of marriage. Surfing all those wonderful blogs out there sure helps. I especially like the quilting, crafting, home decorating and creating ones.
