Hi There! It's been another wacky month at our house! The girls are now staying with their mom 3 nights a week and that has certainly been an adjustment for me! It's soooo quiet when they are not at home! I'm sure I'll get used to it eventually but for now I'm a bit discombobulated! What you've never heard that word before?

Let's see what else has been going on....hmmmm...oh yea I've started using 2 of the evenings they are gone to work on the Prayers & Squares ministry. It's going well. My goal is to have 20 quilts ready for prayers to be added before announcing that it's up and going. I also want to have several hundred 2 1/2" squares for single prayers ready to hand out at the same time. I now have a little over 1/2 the tops done. Tonight I'll work on the 2 1/2" squares while watching Antique Roadshow. Anyone else like that show?

I have a new quilting friend! She moved back to CA last fall from OK. She lives about 40 minutes from me. I go to church with her father-in-law. We are new BFFs! I invited myself to her house last Monday and we hit it off big time. Then yesterday we went to a quiltshow about 1 1/2 hrs from my house...another great day! She compared us to 2 pieces of a puzzle...we both like different things (I like scrappy and 30's and she likes bold and bright) but just like a puzzle we still "fit"! She's also helping me with doing up some of the Prayers & Squares stuff.

DS#1 has moved back home for the time being. Our house runneth over w/love and people! If he stays for very long we are going to finish off the garage earlier than we had planned so he can stay out there...with my quilting machine of course! When we bought this 4 bedroom, 2 bath, living room, family room house I thought it was plenty big...I think I may need to rethink that thought!
