I will be picking a WINNER TONIGHT AT 6 pm (Pacific Time)…so stay tuned…


Gee, I am sure coming away THE WINNER!  I have a copy of this fantastic book PLUS this sweet little creation…my favourite runner EVER!!…I call it ‘The Honeycomb’ but it’s technically called “Do NOT put you elbows on the Table!”  I think I will change that to “Do Not put your elbows on the Table…or ANYTHING ELSE!! :)

On Today’s Agenda~

Blueberry Pancakes in the Clubhouse…and perhaps a little Garage Sailing, followed by a hike on one of the many trails behind Palm Springs…make that a VERY WIDE trail…there have been ‘numerous’ snake sightings due to the hot weather!  YIKES!!

Less than a month left of this Snowbirding Gig…!o(

Have a Super Saturday and Happy Quilting!~P

  8. I love that little runner -- so much....upi have really inspired me to take up quilting that when i went to the flea market today I found a lady selling her handmade creations and she graciously showed me how to thread my machine---its self threading -- now I know what that little knob is for!!! Anyway, after buying my fleas I ended up at JoAnn's Fabrics with my handful of coupons and spent waaaay more than my allowance...but I have a great start on my "stash"....thank you so much for your inspiration----now I am ready to SEW!!!!!
