Unfortunately, I must share some sad news.. there was a terrorist shooting here in the US close to our home in Florida... it is less than a block from the hospital my daughter goes to!!!! Wow!!
Please take time to Pray for Orlando Florida today if you would... this is so devastating for us as it is for the whole US!!!
On a happier note today ... June 13, 2016... is National Sewing Machine day!!!
So will you be sewing for the special day ?? Will you be using this mechanical ingenuity?? lol
I hope to!
I have been working on parts to blocks... for a quilt for our bed.
Recently Connecting Threads had their cotton/wool batting on sale by Hobb's Tuscany... I bought a king sized one just for this quilt for only $29!!! I bought a queen and a tad of some other things to get me free shipping... and now I just wait for it to arrive later this week! :) Yahoo!!!!

On May 31 my granddaughter turned 1!!!
And soon after... on June 6... my grandson turned 2 years old!!!
So this Grammy has had a busy month for sure!!!

Well, as we chat I am thinking of tons of things that need to be done.. so I will wish you well for now... and will promise to write more soon!
Have a blessed week my bloggy friends!!! No matter the violence in the world around us we must remember even MORE today than before that Life is precious and ...
