I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

I got this finished over
the past weekend--all
bound and labeled...

Here it is on my cocktail table in
my living room..
Fits nicely...;)))

The backing is a VERY old fabric
that has been languishing
in my stash for-EVER!
I chose to use the bird fabric for
the binding.
I even remembered to 
label it...;))

on the family front:
my two handsome twin grandsons--

Greg (L) and Connor(R) 
are attending their last day 
of High School..

Tomorrow they will graduate..

It just doesn't seem possible...

My daughter's youngest two..
S  I  G  H...

Life surely flies by in a moment...

We will be watching the
live stream at
5 p.m. here at home...

We hope to see them soon so 
I can give them
their "Going Away  To College"

It will have been such a long time
since my daughter and her family
have all come down here.

We are planning a BBQ 
Fingers crossed for good weather...


I hope you are all well and
being able to sew...
