My kids and I were in a 'full color' photo in our local newspaper today. How exciting! They want to expand our local animal shelter, and the city council was going to discuss the funding at the meeting last night.
The project is going to more than double the size of our shelter. I think it will be a great improvement for the animals, employees, volunteers, and visitors.
The three of us volunteer there once or twice a week. It's a great way to teach my little ones responsibility

I really want to sew, but I just can't get myself to walk into the sewing room and get busy. This is really strange because I love to sew and quilt. I'm guessing that I'm still on a "wind down" from last week's Girls' Night Out/Bras for a Cause. I think I'll go to sleep early tonight and get an early start tomorrow.
I have to see a hospice patient at 9:30 and then another one at 1:30, but I have nothing in between. I think I'll "schedule" myself some quilting time.
My last posting ended up with a HUGE picture. I am going to resize and try again!

I think a good way to look at it is you need a new pair of shoes but
It has drizzled all day. We may get some snow mixed in before it ends.
Today was guild day. Our small group always goes together, eating beforehand. We had a wonderful program put on by a lady from OKC who does the most amazing portrait quilts. I'm taking her class tomorrow - a complete out-of-the-box for me, but we shall see.
Last evening we had a small aftershock, DH sitting next to me didn't even notice it. But one of the little dogs had histerics.
Have a blessed

Very pretty and you did a great job.
The box is sitting next to my desk at work but I can't open it until I get home tonight. I didn't think it would be delivered until Thursday. I'll take pictures and put the pictures in my Sewing Room Album tonight. So excited.
Now I have four good machines and three that do FMQ. So cool. I'm looking forward to playing on her this weekend. I'm naming her after my Father's Mother, Helen (a/k/a Nana). My Nana could sew, but I never saw her actually make anything. Mom said she
