Good Late nite Everyone,
so much to do, but so little time. I have been cutting up my scraps into different size squares and rectangles. It is a chore, but I am getting there, and filling up a bag for strip blocks too. It is slow, but the hare didnt win the race, or did he?
We were altogether for Christmas: dh, me, Ash, Jerad. We had a great time, all tho the visit was short. Ash had to head back to KC the next day, but we savor the time we have with her. Jerad told us something tonite, much to my dismay. I know it is a good thing, but a mom worries--it is my perogitive right? He is thinking about joining the NAVY. Hard for me to even type. I know I shouldnt worry it is in God's hands, but like I said it is a mom's right. Bill and I have talked, but not in length. He knows my feelings as does Jerad, but it is my son's decision, he is a man now, so I will turn it over to God.
We are still thinking about moving to CA. This winter has been hard on both Bill and I. It is nearly below zero tonite. The doggies dont even want to stay out very long, so you know it is cold. We keep the home fire burning, but man, I think the coldness seeps in everywhere.
I will be glad for my trip to CA in a week and a half, that is sure. I am going to spend some time with my girlfriend, and we are going to the Road to CA Quilt show in Ontario, CA. I can not wait. I have wanted to do this for a few years and this year I have finally been able to do it. I am leaving the 11th, and flying out there. It will be soooooooooooooooo much fun, and warm! LOL.
I am reading a book by Nora Roberts--it is a trilogy I think. The first one is called Night Shift. It is pretty good.
Well, better get. Work tomorrow, and then probably cut out more fabric tomorrow nite. I found this pattern:


so cutting up fabric for a couple of charity quilts for a retreat I am going to in May. It is in Indiana. I have been going everytime except for once, and was so sorry to miss it, my my mil was very ill, and we flew to CA to see her. I hope to post when they are finished. Will probably take me a month to a month and a half.
Bye for now,
