Good Morning to you all. Yesterday was my Mom's Birthday and if she was alive she would of been 86, so I was alittle blue yesterday remembering my Mom. I know Sue felt it to. But as for today I am feeling better and looking forward to the weekend, yes more games on Saturday (thanks goodness the season is almost over) and Sunday is my birthday and I think if Mark is feeling better which he is not we may go to Vegas and have a nice supper somewhere? I can not complain about our weather over here it was 70 in Vegas yesterday but we do have a storm coming which might if we are lucky bring some rain to the desert. I hope so. we don't see much and we tend to forget what rain is like. I know that Spring is soon to come, my mums thinks it is fall and they started blooming again? silly things. Well Rosemary asked me to post my quilt thing I am making, my only thing is I really don't know if I am making a blanket or pillow or what? I am not a pro at it, still a beginner so squares are all I know and I love purple and found this purple fabric at Walmart. So if you can give me some ideas on what to make I would love to know before I keep adding squares to it and the shape would be to odd to do anything with.

Hope your all having a nice week and keeping warm. Come out here and enjoy the Winter in the desert... Take care.

Hi today is the first time I saw your blog. I have been wanting to make quilts with material from clothes that are to stained to wear or pass on to others. I was told not to do that to buy material that doesn't sound as much fun. I do have a sewing machine that I need to use more often. I am slowly learning how to blog, I like it a lot. Have a nice day.

Happy Birthday to you!!!! Blessings & Hugs and all those good things!!!
LOVE your quilt....I agree with Sue, go for a lap quilt. The colors are beautiful and you will love snuggling with it. Although your temps are MUCH warmer than ours!!!
