Hope you all are having a great morning.  Cloudy here in Maryland, no humidity and quite nice.  

The photo above is a small hospice quilt that I am in the process of finishing up.  Thinking of using the polka dot fabric (to the right) for four inch borders.  This is all made from my red scrap bin.  lol, not even making a dent in the bin.  I think I will make a couple more using black and whites and blue and ?  Very easy pattern from 
Jenny Dolan (Missouri quilt company).  Her pattern name for this quilt is "The Zipper Quilt".

Not too much news for the week.  Next week DH and I will be meeting some dear friends at the airport (their layover).  We haven't seen this couple for over 30 years, wow, I wonder if we will even know each other.  I'm sure it will be a great but short get together.

Until the next time....... smile and be happy.....

Shortly after I got home from San Diego, DH and I received this great gift from my DD Sandi.  This one replaced the worn out, letters missing, faded etc.  We really like the sign and if you look closely you will see the red crabs on each side.  I guess we need to paint the pole now, (LOL).  Sandra really knows how do pick them just right.

I have been working on making medium sized yoyo's.  Good craft to do while watching TV.  The yoyo's will be used to make Christmas tree wall hangings.  I will be donating a couple of the wall hanging to the senior center.  Hopefully I can get a couple done for the hospice house as well.

I took a day off for a senior trip to a Delaware  Casino.  Two filled buses left at 6:45 am and returned about 7:00 pm the same day. About 100 seniors went.  We had a blast and I did come home with a little more than I went with.

I am working on a red and white scrappy quilt (trying to use up some scraps).  the pattern name is "The Zipper Quilt"  cute, easy to sew up.  I will include photos on my next blog.

Going to play Bingo after church today, wish me luck.  Until ???

Hi, this is a test...  My grandson was visiting me this week and he helped me get out a rut.  I was unable to post photos on my blog .  Austin was a super helper.  He worked hard to get me straighten out.  I will be posting again soon.  He did a fantastic job.  This is an older photo, note,,,,,, I don't wear glasses anymore. Plus, lol, I have all white hair now.LOL.
