About Me

My photo
I am a 40 something female who has a great love for crafts...any crafts. I love quilting, I collect fabrics, books and patterns. I enjoy traditional patterns in bright colors. My favorite fabrics are batiks and brights. Because I am a great collector...I now have a stash that is out of control. My goal for the upcoming year is to reduce my stash. I won't stop collecting so I need to become more productive.

So Sorry

I have been across the country and back! May was (since there are only hours left) a really busy month for me. Graduations, surprise visits, family get togthers...work.. too much. I now have one month with nothing planned..that is that requires traveling more than 2 hours from home.

There is so much more I wanted to accomplish this month but never got around to it...cleaning, planting my tomato plants ( my Topsy Turvey planter was recalled by QVC), giving Izzy a summer hair cut and organizing my closets. It seems my entire wardrobe is in three suitcases or in the laundry room. I need a few more outfits to complete my summer wardrobe....but I am not in a hurry to find them, smile.

Blogging and sewing have both taken a back seat....I promised that June will bring more of both.

Hugs and Blessings!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day Everyone!!!

This has been a "flying"month for me. My sister-in -law's graduation in Minnesota and finally my surprise for my mother on yesterday...me, for Mother's Day! I flew in to surprise her....boy was she shocked! Hehe!

Needless to say...I however am exhausted! I would not recommend flying this much and working this much to anyone. I am so happy that I don't have to routinely travel with my current job. I always pack the wrong things and this trip was no different. I was expecting warm balmy temps...no, it is serious sweatshirt weather here! I did bring some jeans but no long sleeves. My best friend remembered that she did pick me up a sweatshirt on one of her shopping trips a few months ago , I now have one lightweight jacket and a sweatshirt.

Tomorrow, I am walking/running...Kim says we are walking...in the Entertainment Industry Foundation Revlon Run/Walk for Women. This aids the fight against all Women's Cancers. Pictures to follow.

Happy Mother's Day!!

Love and Kisses!
