I'm purging some of the blogs I follow during my spring cleanup. I clicked follow on EVERYONE (crazy I know) I visited at first when I started blogging, but I realize that there are only a few I read on a daily basis. I skip this one or that to get to my favorites. Reading and learning and being inspired by other blogs is why I blog. Your blogs feed into my reading list. At the end of the day I sit down and read SMILE : ) and learn. My favorite blogs have energy, stories, colors, and time to sew. Their owners have taken time out of their busy lives to communicate with me a total stranger. I've recieved tips, patterns, won drawings, been sent a wedding gift, received prayers, been mentioned in their blogs. Blogging is a wonderful experience!

Well Sunday will have been one year of marriage. We are keeping it low key since I'm still in my walking book and had to change ideas more than once when we realized I couldn't get around. It's been great getting to live with my best friend. We are going out to eat tonight and then see a movie. The big treat is we will be staying in a hotel in the city we are visiting and then go shopping in the morning. The big purchase is a scanner - it's paper related so I'm counting it. We are going to use it to scan my quilt patterns I've cut out of magazines, recipes, etc. Less to take overseas and if we save as a pdf then I can send it to my Kindle. I love my Kindle! It has a scratch on it and they are going to replace for free... Love it. See you next week when I post a picture of our new scanner.

Dots and Stripes No Plaids OH MY!

So Victoria issued a challenge for dots and stripes and plaids. Well I found I have no plaids. I've been dealing with my Mom being sick and recovering from surgery. In between I worked on two 6 1/2 inch squares which I put in the mail today.

Mom out of ICU

Mom is out of the ICU and into a regular room. She had a journey into her dementia yesterday. She is starting to not recognize us. She could go back to her assisted living room, but may have to go to the nursing home if the nurses don't like the reports from the hospital, but it up to them.
