Just need to vent

Posted by Vickie Smith on January 31, 2015 at 5:35pm 0 Comments

Between the computer issues, the floor being redone in the kitchen, then a couple of weeks ago the back fence started to fall down, now the microwave died while I was fixing dinner today.  Oh well, this too shall pass as they say.  I was able to finish dinner since the stove/oven still works, right now.  Hope that doesn't decide to die any time soon.

Great idea!

Posted by Mary Goldsberry on January 27, 2015 at 8:31am 0 Comments

My quilt group had a great idea. We picked a New Year's resolution: finish a UFO, including details about it. An example: finish snowman wall hanging, have blocks, need to sew them, quilt it and bind it. Or for newbies, learn new technique like binding, applique.  Write it on paper, give it to our program director. In December, out come the cards. Bring project done or not.
