New Projects



Well, now that I actually have time to sew, I have a bunch of fabric that I have bought for various projects. These are two of them. The first one is a kit that I picked up in a quilt shop in Glasgow Montana when we visited our oldest son last summer. Looks like a cute childen's quilt. It says it will be 40x40. The other project is a new quilt for my sun room. I don't have a design in mind yet, so ideas are welcome. I just finished up the Patriotic stars quilt (from several blogs ago) all it needed was a binding. And I worked on my Blue Star Mothers table runner until I ran out of bobbin thread and was too lazy to wind a new one (and it was 9:30 pm anyway).
I just received a copy of my college transcripts (I need them for work so they will add it to my personnel record) and found out that I missed summa cum laude by .01 - I had a 3.74 and you needed a 3.75. good grief - I shouldn't even care at this point.
Well it has been really dreary and raining forever - the weather forecasters tell us maybe we'll see sun tomorrow - cross your fingers.

I miss my boss


Sometimes having a good boss makes all the difference in the world. Well, she moved onto another position and the whole office is missing her. She definately had the "right stuff."

Ok - I'll stop whining. Anyway, this is what I made her.

Cruise to Bermuda







Boy what a lovely island. To celebrate my graduation (and our 33rd anniversary) we took a 7 day cruise to Bermuda. What a way to relax. We did a few touristy things and shopping (of course) and just had a nice time. Of course, when I went to weight watchers this morning, I had put 4 lbs back on. Well extra time on the Wii Fit, I guess.

Quilt for Mom




Well, between finishing up college, getting ready for a cruise, and my boss leaving, I decided to make a quilt for my Mom's 75th birthday. I was feeling a little guilty that I would be on the cruise, but my kids helped out. JT and Elaine took her out to lunch on her birthday, my oldest son, Chris, called her from Montana and sent flowers. I would have liked to put in a little more work on the "quilting" part of the quilt, but I just ran out of time. Maybe I can get it back from her and put in a few more touches. Maybe.

I made it - woohoo graduation!


Well after a 30 year journey, I have finally graduated from college (Assumption College in Massachusetts) magna cum laude, no less. My husband's not looking too happy, that's my middle son and daughter is taking the picture.
So now what to do with my spare time?
Well I joined the town Republican committe, I can finally devote time to my Air Force Association chapter (especially since I'm the President) and do more volunteering with my Blue Star Mothers group.
Oh yeah - and quilt, and read, and exercise, and .......
