Trying this again.

Been away for a long time due to happenings in life. Some have been really good.
One being hubby bought me a new quilting machine. An Innova and I love it. So you can guess what has been keeping me quite busy. Yes, quilting.  I hope to have lots of quilt pics to post. I am doing a lot of edge to edge or pantagraphs but I am learning. I want to do more free motion quilting but I am a little nervous about it. I think I am afraid of failing. I know I just need to jump in with both feet as the old saying goes.

I have lots of quilt pics to put on here as soon as I figure out how to get them from my ipad to this laptop. If only you knew me and my computer skills you would understand. LOL

Sorry this isn't a great pic but it is a beautiful quilt. This was for my moms Christmas a couple years ago. Needless to say she loved it.
I have more to share  so come back soon and visit.

A sure fire way to get your kids to come home for chrismas.....

Hi everyone and happy new year to you and yours..

This is one sure way to get your kids to come home for Christmas............

An elderly man in Oklahoma calls his son in New York and says, "I hate to ruin your day son, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are getting a divo...rce; 45 years of marriage... and that much misery is enough!" "Dad, what are you talking about?" the son yells. "We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the old dad explained. "We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Hong Kong and tell her!". Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. "Like heck they're getting divorced," she shouts, "I'll take care of this." She calls her elderly father immediately, and screams at him, "You are not getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, you hear me?" she yelled as she hung up the phone. The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. "Okay", he says, "it's all set. They're both coming for Christmas and paying their own air-fare."

The daily giggle!

I have messed up big time.....................

I have somehow deleted all of 2013 posts to my blog.  Anyone have any idea of how to get them back.
All I can find is  to do as I have done in the previous post to this one.  Any ideas would be much appreciated.

I don't think I have ever put a pic of this on my blog.   It is a way to use a few scraps up. My friend made this for me. It is just so cute and homey..
