January 2007 is gone, already!!!
it is odd that this month went by so fast--in fact, since we have moved back to the Tucson area, time has been moving along faster! How do you slow that down???
This is a most recent picture of Laci--she was groomed today and is pooped and went right to sleep. I dont have the heart to wake her for a new picture!!! She is our little girl!!! and we do spoil her and she doesnt mind :)!!!
Yesterday was great..John and I went for a 4.4 mile walk--we stay long the main drive that leads into the development, walk to the main crossroad, and retrace our steps back to the house...I have done this in 1 hr 20 minutes by myself, but John helped drag that out yesterday..He swears his knee wasnt bothering him --I think he just wanted to walk in the drilling rain! ((~.~)) I must admit that I didnt mind--it was a warm rain and made the day that much nicer..we dont get much around here so it is much welcome when it does get here!!! We werent in the door 10 minutes and the phone rings.. --- The woman that owns the nearest quilt shop asked me if I was ready to be initiated?!?!!? shoot yea!!! ya dont have to aks me twice! LOL--I was over there at 11:00 am and worked till 5 pm..and I was left alone in the shop for 45 minutes!!! HELLO?!?!?!? hehehehehe but I had no reason whatsoever to be concerned--two women that came in knew it was lunch time and were willing to wait, and pay! hehehe I got to help them play with colors!!!I learned a bit and that was so much fun!!! I would go help out again in a heartbeat!!
I dont know about the rest of you, but my brain wanders all the time especially so when I am crafting anything!! More so when I am crocheting and now with quilting. Some day, I would love to have a pattern published, not for a bunch of money or to get rich quick (hahaha), simply because it has been a lifetime of dreaming for me!!! I have been crocheting since I was 6 or 7 and you would think I was born with a hook in hand...(almost 54 years ago) . I have lots of ideas and designs written down and some things I have made often enough, that they are not written down yet! I have taught crochet, and I have tested designs for others and have found my *niche* if you will, in life..I could do this all the time--but where does that put/leave my brain??? I try to inspire others as well, knowing full well, just how contagious it can be, too! hehehehe
NOW, I am finding that helping in the quilt shop to be the same...alomst wants me to take everything out of the closet and make *kits* to someday complete, all while doing the *playing with colors* thingie! hehehe
I am a traditional kinda gal, wishing I was more a girlie girl rather than more of a tomboy! but you know, I love the colors more suitable for the tomboy side of me and John does too!! I am not into filly things and what goes with that like pinks! I love the traditional quilt patterns as well. So I say, give me earth tones any day. I am kinda eclectic, I love the country and outdoors, and casual decor, with a splash of Victorian from time to time...and that is the kind of quilting that I do. all wrapped up together!!! I wont ever be as good at quilting as I am at crochet, but I can certainly have an awful lot of fun doing both!!!
I am curious to see what February has in store for me!!! see you then!!! WIPPY
