Good morning, folks. It is pouring down outside and we are greatful for the rain.
I always forget to take pics of my quilts, so I really do have a couple to post. The panel is for my sis for Christmas. The valentine wall hanging is a pattern from Accuquilt. The first one is my representation of the OKC bombing. Map is backwards (as in half staff flag) and each of the yoyos represents a child killed.
I really need to practice on getting the size down properly.

I received word yesterday that my ex-MIL passed away. She passed away on my daughter's birthday which is really sad. DD is okay with it. She was with her Grandmother at the end and so glad she got the chance to nurse her and spend quality time with her the last two weeks. DD had her for 35 years so she has lots of great memories.
I played in my sewing room yesterday morning trying to banish the sadness after hearing about the deal of ex-MIL. I did some sewing and was able to

It's been a busy, busy weekend and I haven't had the chance to get into my sewing room, so today, I'm looking forward to it! It's like this fun little secret I have with myself that in a few days, I have wonderful things to work on and create and it's there, waiting patiently for me, just as I left it a few days ago...it's kind of like giving myself a bit of a gift as I anticipate what fun things I will do in their today! My DH has an inkling, but not the complete joy it gives me to go hybernate
