Quilting is my passion. The ability to be creative with colorful fabric just makes me smile. Of course, equally joyful is the love of my grandchildren. What could be better?
Food for thought.
Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

The featherweight was packed with several bobbins filled; pattern pieces were traced and cut out; all the fabric was packed with all the intentions in the world to get several more of the Hearts and Hands blocks made up, but with the comings and goings of family members to the cabin we had rented from Friday the 6th through Sunday the 15th, hmmmm....how much do you think I got done? Above is the view from my lounge chair where I did read my fifth Elm Creek Quilts book.....so peaceful.
Here's our family vacation schedule:
Friday.....husband, son, youngest daughter and future son-in-law
Saturday..... husband, son, future son-in-law and me (daughter met up with girlfriends for a girlfriend weekend and I came today as I stayed home to attend grandson's birthday party)
Sunday.....husband, son, youngest daughter (back early), future son-in-law and me
Monday....husband, son, and me (my girlfriend took me shopping for the day)
Tuesday....husband, oldest daughter and grandsons (1, 3 and 6) and me
Wednesday.... oldest daughter, grandsons and me (we went shopping for the day and husband went home to take care of his father and some business)
Thursday.....husband came back with son-in-law, daughter, grandsons and me
Friday.....husband, son-in-law, daughter, grandsons and me
Saturday....husband, son-in-law, daughter, grandsons and me
Sunday.....was going to leave today, but we left last night instead.
Confused yet? There were a lot of comings and going, but for some crazy reason, that was the only way I knew what day it was ....just knowing who was coming when.
I am known as Mimi by my four grandsons. They are 13, 10, 8 and 3 1/2 years old. They are what life is all about. I recently retired from my office job. Now I am just loving being a grandma who loves to quilt and is once again dabbling in knitting, I am a longarmer and an APQS retailer. I can see retirement being very busy!
