Oh the weather outside is frightful
But the fabric is so delightful
I wish I'd no place to go
Let me sew ,let me sew, let me sew
My kitchen floor needs mopping
But I've bought some beads for topping
I've got to finish my UFO
Let me sew, let me sew, let me sew
When I finally sit at the seat
I'll forget all about my home
My family will want to eat
They'd better call for pizza on the phone
The stitches are finally flying
And the seams are flatly lying
If they really do love me so
They'll let me sew, let me sew, let me sew

What a wondrous phenomenon! I took out the dumpsters to the curb and ran back in to get camera--we have fog rolling in at 8:45 in the am--imagine that--there is snow on the mountains around us and a brisk 36 outside...I love weather :o) thought I would share00*~*CAROLE*~*

well, here I am again--I let more time slip away. no more excuses.
Following are pics I took at our final Thimbleberreis meet of the year. Those that completed their tops are in here, and there are a couple that will participate next year. I am behind the top with the gal in blue holding it! ;o) I didnt follow all the directions perfectly, my tulips wound up opposite and i wasnt going to change it! I didnt do embroidery in windows--I am going to hang curtains! LOL and add another border or two...
The picture with the gal in blue behind the quilt completed hers as instructed and has a king sized quilt-The gal in the white jacket was the instructor
I got a real good look at next year's fabrics and decided that i will more than likely buy all of the lodge (dark) colorway
I completed the ripple afghan on Sunday night now I am designing a doily to enter into a contest next year..I am looking forward to this and will take a couple pics soon.
HEY--we are getting some weather--we had rains off and on all weekend and there are winter storms warnings around. We are due a fair amount of rains all day tomorrow. That makes me happy since we see little in the desert. I actually think that what we got put us over our annual rainfall amount of 12 inches :o)
That sure is not much in my book and of course the records do not show that. because they go by what is recorded at the weather service center at the airport. Dont get excited for us--we are still in our drought.
that is enough for now--i am going to work up a couple rounds on the doily, then call it a night!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS, MERRY CHRISTMAS, Happy Hanukkah and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

I have been doing a lot of sewing for charity and we moved the small bedroom set into the small front bedroom and i have the second largest bedroom now as my sewing room--and today or tomorrow--John is moving the computer desk so I dont have to shut'er down at 8pm any more! and i can compute and sew in the same room! dont know if that is good or bad, but i do more at night after he goes to bed! I simply cannot go to bed at 8 pm each night--no way!
Finished a few things, and I need to take some pictures and work on my ripple afghan! I also want to design a doily, before i lose my thoughts and ideas! ya'll have a wonderful weekend-*~*CAROLE*~*
