Busy, Busy, Busy!

Here I am, behind and negligent with my posting. Time just keeps zooming by and I'm holding on with both hands. Several family members traveled to Detroit to see Mitch Albom's play about the life of legendary broadcaster, Ernie Harwell. There was a quilting retreat up north in Gladwin and a wedding for nephew, Trevor and his bride Lakyn.
Connie and I graduated from Moda University and have the certificate to prove it. I finished an old scrappy blues top from way back. This month's Prairie Woman's Sewing Circle project is four patches and pinwheels. The blocks were made at the retreat and the border was sewn on tonight. Our Bee was Monday and here's a picture of Mary's project. Those are little hexagons! Amy Bradley is coming to do a lecture and class in August. A new quilt shop opened in Pinconning in a former church building. It is charming! Lots of Jo Morton fabrics, too.

Mother's Day Review

JJ sent me an Edible Fruit bouquet for Mother's Day! It has delicious strawberries, pineapple, apples, grapes and melon, some of them covered with dark chocolate. I was surprised and delighted. Kari, Craig, Abby and Ian sent me a gift certificate for Barnes & Noble which I will have lots of fun using soon. And from Mike and Simone, a Detroit Tigers toaster! It will imprint an English D on the toast. How cool is that?

Today I am waist deep in fabrics trying to thin out some of them. They must multiply while I'm away. A few 'lost' items have been located and scraps are being cut into usable sizes.
