We Support You–I’m In



Please don’t pass out.  Yes, this is my second blog of the year, one right behind the other, surprise.  As I was catching up on the blogs, I ran into one titled “A Little Support Here” by Carol Swift of Just Let Me Quilt.  My first thought was, “I hope nothing is wrong and I was will to give her all the support I could.  My second thought was I could use another support bra.  Don’t laugh I have to pay $65 to $75 for a good support bra to hold these girls up.

As I read her post I realized it was about supporting breast cancer.  Yes, I have had a friend who has pass from this, I even had a scare sometime back.   It was a post of a Blog Hop to support breast cancer, and as always Mdm Samm has done it again.  I left a comment on Carol’s blog saying how I wish I could join them on this most thoughtful hop and that I would be cheering them on.

Pat from Life In The Scrapatch saw my comment and sent me a e-mail to see if I would like to still participate in the Hop (she is head cheerleader).  I was so happy, I almost jumped out of my chair (I am at work) and did the Moon Walk (note to self, no Moon Walking, bad knee).  So I am in the hop and if this does not get my Groove Back nothing will.  I’m So HAPPY is playing in my head right now.

The Blog Hop starts Jan. 29 – Feb. 11 and I will will be on the last day, and would you know it, the theme is a BRA, pattern done by Mdm Samm (wish I had the aptitude to make my own bra) .  Nothing like getting the old creative juices flowing.  I will be looking through my stash of fabrics thinking of what I want to make.  Oh how I am jumping for joy (note to self, no jumping, might fall).

So, you will see me blogging a little bit more and I like to thank all of you who have missed me the last couple of months.

Keep your needles sharp and your foot on the peddle.

Desperately Seeking Susan????


First I would like to say HAPPY NEW YEAR to all the blogging community.  Yes I am late with this.  Yes I have been MIA for awhile, you know how it can be sometime when family and life gets in the way.

desperately seeking susan

I am not really Desperately Seeking Susan (Madonna), although I am a Material Girl (get it).  O.K., o.k. that was not that funny.  I am Desperately Seeking The Slow Quilter (Felicia), me.

I have some how misplaced myself mentally.  I don’t know if I’m  “scratching my watch of winding my ass” (from 9 to 5 Dolly Parton) After cleaning up the sewing room and living room of all my quilt stuff I have not been able to get back into the swing of things.  I have been doing a lot of crocheting and teaching myself how to knit again.  I have been working on a sock.  That’s right a sock, just one, I am almost to the heel.  No picture yet, don’t want to stop writing this blog or I might not get back to it.

With the New Year coming in, and quilt meetings, I think I might just find myself again.  I already have a couple of challenges to look forward to and finishing up some of my UFOs.  Oh yah, I have a new grandbaby coming in February, so look at all the baby quilts and outfits I can make with all this fabric.

Just maybe, I will put on some Madonna tunes and Vogue through the house or roll around on the floor. (To self, no rolling around on floor, might not be able to get back up).  Ok talking to myself again, bad habits.

I also have been watching a lot of the ID and Forensic File channel on TV.  My sons think I am trying to get away with MURDER.  Like murdering them or their father.  Can't wait for that show to start (How To Get Away With Murder). 

Anyway, I might be getting my Groove back (must be since I keep coming up with all these movie names (How Stella Got Her Groove Back).

O.K. I will stop, need finish cooking dinner before I burn it.  So until I blog again, keep your seam rippers sharp, and your stitches 1/4 inch and I will blog with you later.

In The Mail - Bow Ties & What's Going On

Now that things seem to be getting back to normal around here.  More since Tom is home (he is really in the way).  I think at one point that he really had to think about what he was going to do now, since his mother and father passed.  For the last 2 or 3 years he was almost their care giver and with them 24/7 when they were hospitalized.  Now he is home more and starting to move things around.  More on that later.

Anyway, I am get some things straighten out that I have been “SLOW” getting out.  I had some packages I needed to mail out to some of my blog followers which I did yesterday.  They should be getting them shortly, and yes that is my junky office desk.  One of the packages, the big one I forgot to add a note and got so busy at work I did not have time to send it.  So I am sure the package will get  there before the note, but she will know it is from me (I hope).  I am hoping that they ladies will share their gifts with all of you.  If not, well to each their own.

Also I have gotten in a little sewing since the Black Cat Crossing blog hop.  A young man who interned with us was leaving our office.  One of the ladies asked if I could make him a bow tie with African fabric.  So here are the bow ties.


Andrew can really tie a Bow, the bows on the bottom were for the ladies in the office to were in their hair.


My office buddy and friend Tracy saw them and asked if I could make her some with music fabric for function her uncle was having.  A Jazz Bar part in a carpet warehouse.

Here is Tracy in her Music Bow Tie.  I was sitting down when I took this picture.  Here cousin fixed me a drink and I think I was a little cross eye.


I am also picking up the knitting needles.  My first project is a pair of socks.  Since I have seen some of the quilting bloggers talking about their nice warm socks, I want a pair for myself.  Seems like you really need to know someone to get a pair of home made socks these days.  Even some of my close quilting friends are knitting these days from socks to sweaters, to shawls.  If knitting needles do not work out for me, I can always crochet me a pair.

So that Is all for now.  For those ladies who I hope is still reading by blog.  Let me know when you have posted about you gifts.
