Went to join my quilting friends at a retreat yesterday.  Had a great time.  Our quilt guild has so many talented quilters.  Members were making a large variety of items.  Pillow cases, jewelry, table runners, baby quilts, beautiful hand applique quilts and so much more.   Friend just returned from a visit in Florida and brought me a nice tote bag, I sure have plenty to stuff in the bag.

I was able to teach a class on making the cutest little drawstring pouch, made from two fat quarters, and 1 3/4 yards of cording used for draw strings.  Seems like everyone was excited to make them.  I will sometime in the future send a photo, but right now my ability to upload photos has a problem.
Our luncheon was pot luck and yummy, yummy, everything was so delicious.  We went back to sewing and gabbing until 4:00.  Great day, great friends.

Hope your week end will be with needle and thread.   Betty

Top of the morning to you all.  Woke up to more snow, ugh, kinda sick of seeing all that white stuff.  Looking forward to seeing some flowers and green grass.

Saturday afternoon, my daughter drove down from Virginia and spent the afternoon and evening with us.  It was so nice to have her here.  Early evening we went to a church hall for an evening of Bingo.  The Jackpot was at $3,400.00.  We both had it spent and was waiting for the victory, when we heard a young boy (13 yrs old) yell B I N G O.  So happy for him and family.  Mother cried with happiness, told all that she was going to use it for her son's tuition, come September.  Well, each person there had a reason to win, but I think it went to the right winner.  I have a photo, but it seems that this site is having problems accepting photos.  I will have to check it out.

I have not been very active lately, but hope (once again) to change that.  My DD is soooooo active that she keeps reminding me to post, post.  So I am going to give it a try and hope that my photo problems will soon be solved.

Have a great day, enjoy your ham and cabbage, (Yummy)
