I won!!!!

Charming Chatter (  and Moda had a contest for the best looking Schnibbles.  And I voted for the one I liked and WON a signed copy of Schnibbles Times Two book.  WOW was I excited.  I have never seen a pattern for a Schnibbles, only pictures of the finished quilt, and have wanted to do one because they look so awesome.  Then I won the book.  Thank you to Charming Chatter and Moda and also to CarrieNelson.  Oh and I can not forget Rosie.  I can't wait to get the craft room unpacked and start working on a Schnibbles.

Wow it has been awhile.

Am I ever sorry that it has been so long since I have posted.  So much has happened.  We have moved.  Imagine packing everything you own in 2 weeks and moving it when you are not supposed to lift any more than 5 pounds! Oh yea, I forgot I also have a DH, who while I would not trade him for anything, he will not pack.  He explains he does not know what to do so he will not do it.  So we have moved into a 6 bedroom, 4 1/2 bath home with a living room on the first floor and a family room on the second floor. And, all the kids have their own bedrooms, and DH and I have the master on the first floor and DD and DSIL have a master bedroom on the second floor.
I really hope we do not have to move again anytime soon.  I can sit and recharge my battery and not have to watch what the husband wants to watch.  Now if we could only get the craft room unpacked and in some kind of order.  I know, all in good time.  At least that is what my daughter says.
Well the kids are back in school.  One in HS and the other 3 in Middle school.  We also have 6 grands in WNY that I miss dearly.  The oldest graduated from HS this last June.  Where does the time go.

Any slackers out there?

Hi everyone, is it hot where you are?  It seems like everyday is hotter than the day before, or is it just my imagination.  I have been working on my Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt.  I joined the quilters on the Quilting Forum and we started this week with block 1 and 2.  So far,  I am right on track and have them done.  I have even picked out all the colors for the rest of my 109 blocks, have my templates all cut out and have traced some of them onto fabric.  I guess I am not part of the slackers club on this quilt.
 My Tens Machine is working better than when they put it in. This allows me to control my pain a little better.
