If you're a REAL quilter, you have at least one UFO (unfinished object) and one WIP (work in progress) stashed in the closet or stacked on a shelf. Maybe you just need quilting suggestions, or maybe a fresh eye from a new online friend can help with block arrangements. How about a UFO swap? Any UFO conversation is welcome.

Happy Birthday, Mary. So glad you are having apple pie, roses and rose bushes with your favorite people and started your new knitting project. Best of wishes for the whole year.

Happy Birthday, Mary!!! Hope it was a great day!

Happy Birthday to me...Happy Birthday to me.  Paul made a delicious apple pie, I got roses and rose bushes from the library folk.  And I spent the day starting a new knitting project to get in shape for the "tour de sock".  What a lovely day!

Mary, I have a sheep, pig, cow and frog finger puppets also. I was cleaning out the sunday school storage room yesterday and I was overwhelmed by the memories in that room of songs and puppet show and stories, the kids and workers. It was lots of work but worth it all.

Linda, San Raphael sounds like the place for you, then, since both lndy and you will have support out there... and no harsh winters! Good luck. At least the housing market is still healthy...selling now would be perfect , as most want to move in summer. Your lovely garden will certainly be a selling point.

Hope this all works out Linda.  I've been wanting to check out the Berkeley shop.  A friend commutes there for other business, 3 plus hours.

Barbara, Our batch of puppets also included cute finger puppets.  I have brought home the children's play tent to revise it into a puppet stage.

Healing foods for High Blood presure: celery and garlic. Researchers found that the equvalent of about 4 stalks of celery a day lowered blood presure by 2 to 14 percent in rats and about 7 percent in humans!! Here I go again!! Puree four sticks of celery with two cloves of garlic, half an onion, and a tomato for a daily anti-hypertensive drink. As you all know, salt or foods high in sodium is a no no for Hypertension. Eat fresh, natural foods and you'll cut your sodium intake signifiantly. I've been staying away from the potatoe chips. 8 (   Healing foods for Low blood preasure: Green tea, fish, onions, banana, Chamomile, spinach and other bitter greens.Tomatoes, Fava beans ( I don't know what they are.) Saffron (very expensive.) 

Mary, I didn't make the puppets, I bought them. I'm not that creative, I tried though!! They worked out well for VBS and the girls club. We put on a cooking show together with the the girls club and the puppet we named Julia Child. We have also a french chief and a boy with red hair and freckles and a African american man and a hispanic girl. And a green rubber dinosaur with a tooth ache. We had a real vet come to VBS to take out his bad tooth. ha ha!! They were lots of fun. The boy with the red hair was a latch key kid who showed up for VBS and had to know what was going on. The kids loved it. You'll have fun with the kids.
