Jeff drove a trailer to Quartzsite, Arizona for friends. If any of you know anything about Arizona, you know that Snowbirds like it there. And even better is Quartzsite where there is thousands of acres of free R.V. parking space for months on end. And they think they are going to get rich quick by setting up their little tables with nick nacks that someone can't live without. So after being gone for 3 days, (yeah, time with the 5 Little Lovelies, videos and sewing) he came back with treasures for me and ....our girls. Notice there are 3 cookie jars. My guess is the duck is going to be up for grabs, so anyone that really wants it speak now or forever hold your piece. there is also 3 covered pie plates, a combo tea cup & pot in the shape of an english cottage and an electric skillet, identical to the one we received as a wedding gift more than 35 years ago. He knew how much I liked cooking in the old one and since he didn't get around to fixing the broken leg, he figured this was a good deal because it's in such good shape. And the grand total of this good deal is $60. Wow! I just don't know what to say dear. Thank you?

Took 2nd Place. The last game score was 6-4. Can you tell she really doesn't like her picture taken. Even when she is in outfield and trying to ignore me in the stands.

The season is ending in a week or two.

Lisa showed us lots of techniques and made the day fun.
We all had a good time and a very good pot luck lunch. Sharon, Inez, Della, Barbara, Joan,
Diana, Pat, Janet, Teresa, LueAnne, Char, Sandra and Bonnie.
This is my sample. I learned to applique more than 15 years ago and the techniques then are alot different than today. So I stopped appliqueing because it was too time consuming and I didn't always like the end result. Lisa has showed me that it can be easy, quick and get good results. I'm not sure I'm going to make a boat load of wire ribbon roses. But I'm glad I learned and had fun day with friends

I started Friday on the third day of antibotic for Bronchitis and headed to W. Stockton for a 7 a.m. root canal. My dentist said, "May as well, you're alrealy on good drugs."
Then I bought stock in Kleenex. When I got home I transferred back and forth from sitting to sleeping on my couch, watching old movies and working on my "Tisket, Tasket Baskets". I'm doing them in redwork. I know Lisa H. will have her appliqued TTB quilted by the time I get my last block embroidered. Pictures later.
It's good to run with over achievers, makes me know not to waste alot of my time trying to keep up. But I do enjoy her finished projects, (usually years of enjoyment before my project every gets done.)
Thanks to the best computer geek I know, HUD my computer is up and running again, but my camera has been loaned out. So pictures to finally follow soon.
