My New Passion

Podcasts are my new passion. I have spent most of the day at my sewing machine listening to the podcasts of "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" from NPR. It makes me laugh out loud. So funny! You can subscribe to it for free at iTunes. I have also been listening to The Moth Podcast.

I finished a skirt that just needed hemming and am working on a sleeveless shell to wear with it. Photos when I am done...stay tuned...

First day of Summer vacation

School's out for summer.....
Here's what I did on my first day of summer vacation...not much!
1. I slept in.
2. I spent some time organizing and cleaning my sewing room. This is something that will have to happen everyday this summer to get it in order, it's a mess.
3. I applied for a job...the same job I have been working since September. The person I was filling in for has decided to retire. I think I'll be a shoe-in, but you never know!
4. Tonight is a quilt guild meeting. Tomorrow is a needlework guild meeting.
It's shaping up to be a great summer! Stay tuned....

Finished Quilt

Today my daughter is the maid of honor in her college roommate's wedding. Her gift to the bride was a quilt. Of course, I had to make the quilt! My daughter sent out squares to family and friends and I chose red and white fabrics from my stash to create the quilt. I'm going to have to replenish my reds!!

A Beautiful Wedding

Two weeks ago our niece was married. It was a wonderful day.

All of my children were able to make it. And everyone was wondering who would be next...

They will! My son and his fiance. A wedding next summer to look forward to...and another daughter, finally!!
