Bones

My poor sister fell and broke her leg and ankle in several places.  She had to undergo extensive surgery to get things put back together.  Now she is in a wonderful rehabilitation center where she is learning to function without bending her leg or putting any weight on it while it heals. She has physical therapy several times per day.  Please send well wishes her way!

Between therapy sessions she has knitting, crochetting, puzzle books and her laptop to keep her busy.  I am trying to talk her into quilting lessons but I haven't been successful quite yet.  She loves the quilts that my other sister and I make but we haven't been able to convince her to join our obsession.

Happy Quilting,
Laurel

Happy New Year 2013

Happy New Year to each and every one of you!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone!  I hope this holiday season brings you happiness and joy.

I got an early Christmas gift this year!  My son and daughter-in-law stopped by with a little gift bag.  Inside was a beautiful pink Mirano glass bead for my Pandora bracelet!!!  This was their wonderful, clever way to tell us that the baby they are expecting is a girl!  Our new granddaughter is expected to arrive in May.  May the quilting begin!  I am excited to be able to make some girly quilts.

My daughter and grandson are visiting for the holidays and decorating our tree was great fun with my grandson's help.

Gifts are all wrapped and under the tree.  I'd better get some sleep because I know he'll be up early.

Merry Christmas and

Tis the Season

I, for one, am glad the world did not come to an end yesterday!  I can't even count all of the "End of the World" predictions I've lived through in my lifetime.  I remember being a young child and being really worried that "they" knew what they were talking about ..... and always happy to realize they were wrong and the world lived to see another day!

Baby Quilt

It felt really good to work in my studio for a couple of hours after school today.  I'm having a difficult time getting things done lately because I still get tired easily but little by little I'll get back to normal.

Giving Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving.  I hope you are enjoying a day of family, friends, good food and fun.  I hope you are able to spend some time today doing things that make you happy and reflecting on things that you are thankful for.

Thanksgiving Week

My adorable second graders have shared with me once again.  I am glad they are learning to share but do wish they would not share their illnesses!  "This thing" that is going around has knocked me for a loop.  All I have wanted to do is sleep. Sleep. And sleep some more! My sore throat is gone and I'm only coughing at night now. Enough whining now,  I am certainly glad I am feeling better so I can enjoy the upcoming holiday.

Veterans Day

Our music teacher put on a special music program at school last night to honor veterans in the area.  The students paid tribute to all who have fought for our country.

I was happy to see that so many stores and restaurants had special offers over the weekend for veterans.

I hope you were able to find a way to show your appreciation to a veteran too.
