My plan was to dump this blog but it seems that someone is actually visiting here...soooo, I guess I'll update when I get a chance...you know really change it. Meanwhile, my collegiate DD sent me pics of the scarf and hat that I knitted and her quilt....so here they are. Additionally, while reading a message from Mimi, the Sister at HS DD called and thanked me for the Wedding Bear Pair....she says that they are beautiful (everyone admires them) YEAH! HOORAY!!!! Sister, you have made my day!!! WAAAA WAAAA... IT IS NOT WORKING.... Okay so I updated the pics to the slide show .... one more try here.

I've made changes here on my blog and while doing so lost a very important item. It is the PAY IT FORWARD EXCHANGE. So for the first time this year, I promise to send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don't know what the gift will be yet, and you may not receive your gift tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days...THAT IS MY PROMISE! Now what I ask YOU to do in return is "Pay It Forward" by making the same promise on your blog... Come on and let's play!!!!

Before Bargello Maddness overtook me, I did put a couple of my crossroads blocks together. I really like it! Also I was able to finish DD's (19 yo) quilt that I had been working on since August 07!!!! Eureka!!!!
Okay sportsfans, I like Tom Brady and his crew, but enough already. I was rooting for the Giants and was in here yelling like I was a crazy woman (shhh, don't tell...I really am crazy...shhh)and EUREKA!!! they won! While I was watching those crazy commercials and the game, I was also working on Superbowl Bargello Quilt...I was able to finish cutting the strips and sew a couple panels together. This is the first bargello attempt and I was kinda confused; however, after putting them on the design wall, I got it....I believe anyhoo! I have not sewn accurately, soooo I think that I'll cut some black strips (1")and sew them between each bargello strip...stay tuned.....looks like I will have to go back to CC and finish it first!
...............really loving this...........
