Or so I'd like to think...but in all actuality, each of us are SIGNIFICANT parts of the world. But why not? Can't these stories be all about me...and all those I care about!!
So join me in my thoughts, stitching, quilting, reading, faith and whatever else is happening...

Quick update - can you believe it - QUICK, I say!
I'll try...quick! I am a wordy (aka chatty) person, to say the least. Those of you who know me, quit laughing!!
Pineberry Lane Autumn on Marigold Lane. I posted it a bit ago, just the house I think, maybe the flower bloom...worked on it off and on at a couple meetings recently. It's a little larger count than I normally do and pretty easy to work on when around others, or when I am tired!
Last posting I showed you the start I made on this...I love the strawberries! Heart's Ease Examplar Workes A Maryland Inspiration is one of the biggies I am working on. I wondered about some of the colors when looking at them prior to starting. I am still wondering about some of them, but they are growing on me. It's hard to see the "8" in the below picture. I may still have to get a darker color to sub out. The cartouch items are over one. Sweet!
I have not put one single stitch in Ann Dale since I have been working on Maryland most evenings.
The last couple weekends, I have spent most of my free time in the sewing room. I am getting ready for a quilt retreat; my first sleepover quilt retreat - four days/three nights. I will show progress next post. It's coming soon and I can't wait!
I joined the Jo Morton "Little Woman" club. This past Saturday I went to the open house at the quilt shop hosting the club. Picked up these to get my Jo Morton collection started. We'll see how those miniatures go for me - sounds like another addiction!
It's time for me to head to bed. I am pretty sleepy and it was a stressful day at work, starting with the drive. We had wintry mix - rain, snow, ice, sleet - here in the mitten last night.
