Play List Week of 9/19

 Hello Everyone,

Here's my play list for this week.  The song titles are very fitting and are a better match than some of the lyrics.

See You in September - The Happenings

Waiting on a Friend - The Rolling Stones

Anticipation - Carly Simon

I Will Wait - Mumford and Sons

These are the Days of our Lives - Queen

My next retreat starts on Sunday, September 25th.  This week I will finalize all of the preparations for the arrival of 36 quilters from across the state. I'm anxiously awaiting their arrival and look forward to seeing my friends and making new friends.  We always have the BEST time!

I'm also preparing for my trip to North Dakota where I will be teaching at the Badlands Quilters Guild.  I'll be teaching Peek-a-Boo Pumpkins table runner and Country Samper. 

Country Sampler
is a painless way to incorporate and learn the formulas for many different quilting components.  I'm looking forward to branching out into other areas of the country.  Next year I'm headed to Illinois and Wisconsin.

We went to Livermore this weekend to watch our grandsons play football.  We also spent more time cleaning out the garage......the move is still not completely finished. Our grandson recovered a fumble which set up the winning touchdown.  These cliffhanger games are almost too much for our old tickers while we cling to the edge of our bleacher seats.  Watching the boys play is the best entertainment in town!

While I'm writing this post, I'm watching the funeral procession for the Queen.  What a remarkable woman and historic figure. The outpouring of love is a true testament to this amazing woman. May she rest in peace after her 70 years of serving her country so admirably.



  1. I agree about Queen Elizabeth serving her country so admirably. Your grandson is growing into a fine young man. Nothing like a team sport for life lessons. Remember to breathe during retreat setup. Where in Illinois will you be next year?

    1. I will be teaching at the Pieceful Gathering quilt shop's 3-day retreat in Crystal Lake just outside of Chicago. It would be wonderful if you could join us!
