Words to myself

Well I am posting a note to myself so I can come back and read it time and time again...when I need it.  I enjoy my guilds and groups so much because they are just the type of people that I love to be around.  I belong to quilt guilds and groups, fiber art groups and sewing guilds.  To me, other than my family, we are the best people to be around.  In my opinion we are creative, knowledgeable, understanding, forthright, we love to share and help other people.  We love to make for those less fortunate and there are many other adjectives and verbs I could think of to use but if you are reading this than you already know them but one major thought about others in this area.... we love to SMILE and HUG and sometimes that is all someone needs to make their day.  What has led me to writing this post is, as some of you know, lately I have been rather housebound to a certain degree until a few personal things are worked out and since I have been partially housebound I have been cleaning up or out or reorganizing my Stuff!    Boy oh boy do I have allot of stuff so I am thinking about this year coming up and since I really have accomplished so much in the last month or so (some things I cannot reveal due to being presents from Santa) I think what I am thinking is maybe taking a few of my groups/guilds and taking a hiatus just for who knows 6 months to a year to really work on getting some of my own stuff done without putting the pressure on myself to feel like I need to do everything that each group/guild is doing.  Also I had a friend, Linda who use to come over once a week, when I had a larger sewing room and we would just stitch and talk together maybe treat ourselves to a lunch once in awhile and I really do miss that.  We could not stay in my sewing room, I don't think anyway but we could use the l/r or something just to have our quality time back.  I think she misses it too well at least I hope she misses it and we could get back to it after the first of the year.  I also have another friend, Vicky  that would also like to join in every now and again.  What better thing than to share your time and your hobbies with your friends.
I generally do not post a "what I am thinking" post but you know way back when I first started this blog that is what it was suppose to be for and every now and again I did post a personal note but I must be changing or something is going on with me because I feel the need to really start connecting through putting pen to paper or fingers to  See there is something else allot of you do not know about me;  I use to write all the time since I was oh I guess about 11 years old.  I have journals and journals up until oh I guess I was around 30 and then I stopped for personal reasons I guess but anyway these are my thoughts right now and where ever they lead I am looking forward to bringing in the New Year with friends and family......enjoy your day!

Our Thanksgiving Day

Here are some pics that I wanted to share from our thanksgiving...I hope you and yours had a wonderful day!
The first one is half of our dinner guests and the second one is my daughter-in-law Samantha; my grandbaby girl Phalynn and my grandson Dayton.  It turned out to be a wonderful day and since there were 2 cooks in the kitchen Sam and I got along wonderfully!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving

To my family & friends and my  extended family and friends I wanted to take a moment and say " thank you"!  I have had a bit of a tough year and you all have helped me through it in some way.  At times I did not know how I was going to get through some of it and I could always come here and reach out and you all were there.  And in such a gentle way I could not ask for a better Internet circle of family/friends.  I hope the next year finds  good things for us and our family.   I know God never gives us  more than what we can bear and what I felt I could not bare I came here to share and you all helped me so I say "thank you" and if I can help any of you all  in some small way I will be there. You know I was thinking the other day that if we all could put a pile of our hardships out there in front of us and we could all see each others then we more than likely would take ours back. Take care of you and your families and have a wonderful season of fun, love, support and friendship.

Needing help with blogs

Good morning I am wondering if anyone els has had the same problem I am having.  Whenever I go to a blog it is taking me forever to be able to go anywhere or post a comment on any blog that I go to , even my own.  I keep getting a message at the bottom of the blog that says blogger needs to recover.  So i hit the reover page and it takes me, without a word of lie at least 14 to 20 minutes for it to recover and then someimtes I still cannot leave a comment or anything.  I am thinking that something is not connecting and it has only been since this new computer that I had to get almost a couple of weeks ago.  I have sent bloggers a note about it and have not heard anything yet so I was wondering if anyone else has gone thru this?  Apprecite any words of advice.

Thank you

Hi everyone I just wanted tO say Thank you for all your comments and notes that you all were kind enough to send me, I am still trying to figure out how to get my pica posted. For some reason they are here on my computer but for some reason blogger will not let me post any is beginning to work on my last nerve. I use to have xp and now I have 7 but not liking it very Thanks for the support, appreciate it sistas,

Ghastlie Blog Hop

Yes I was one of the 54 and now there are none. Yep I fell pray to ghastlie happenings when Madame Samm and her "54" went to print. My computer caught a ghastlie bug and my sewing machine bent over backwards to help me finish my ghastlie projects but to know avail......but what my sewing machine could not finish I tried free handing, twitching my nose and all sorts of stuff just to finish and believe you me I had a ghastlie time of it. Now our fearless leader just loves hand stitching but I tell you it is just ghastlie, just ghastlie!!!
In all seriousness I had a good time putting my projects together and when I could had a wonderful time reading all my sista's ghastlie projects. If you click on my side bar you can go there and still look at all the things that were created by a ghastlie group of women who joined their leader and had a wonderful time with just one line of Alexander Henry's Ghastlie was awesome to watch unfold....Thank you Madame Samm for including me in this endeaver and I am a day late, I apologize it was not meant to be......Now let me see if I can get some ghastlie photos of my projects that did get done.. No pictures are not meant to be showed yet...I can see them they are on this computer but blogger does not see them...back to the srawing board...goodnight!
