Back Again!

I spent Sat. afternoon with my daughters. Sewing with Heather, while Kristin scrapbooked, and Ashlyn drew.  The grandbabies were acting like hyper chipmunks on crack, but I still managed to finish my quilt top!!!  Loved every minute of it!

(in case you're wondering, that's a wrinkle in the pinwheel near the top)
 I've been trying to come up with a name for my sewing machine.  Heather named hers Bella, that was easy...she named it for the shop she bought it at, Bella Fabrics.  Ideas I had were Vicki (because it's a viking), Tabitha or Samantha (because I can work magic with it), yada yada but nothing I thought of hit the spot (or I know people with those names!)  After a lot of obsessing thought, I decided on Lucy.  One of Heather's suggestions was lucky....lucky I got a good deal, lucky Dad let me by it (ROFLOL at that one).  As a life long fan of Lucille Ball, I thought Lucy!  So Lucy it is!  

coming soon!!!!
I began this blog in the summer of 2005.  We had just completed our adventure of selling our house in Portsmouth (6/03) and building this house in Southampton County (finished 1/05).   I must have deleted my initial posts because the oldest one (7/21/05) does not have the sound of an introductory  post.  Anyway, I am coming up on 5 years!!  Wow!!!  It's fun to go back and read old posts.  Kind of like having kept a journal.  So.........stay tuned.  I'm going to have a giveaway to celebrate my blogiversary!  TBA sometime in June.
Off to cook out with the daughters, men folk, and the chipmunks!  Happy everything to you!

***NOTE: This post was edited by none other than... my amazing daughter, ASHLYN ! (:

It's a gorgeous quilt and it looks like a gorgeous day too!

I love that you named your sewing machine Lucy. Now you can say "Lucy, I'm home!"

I love the quilt top! I have been piecing a quilt top this past weekend and today. My eyes needed some much needed rest from stitching and the piecing isn't nearly as hard on them. I love that you named your sewing machine Lucy! I always have to stop on the t.v. channel and watch the show if it's on while I am flipping through the stations.
