A email asking for scraps (friend traveling to Mexico plans to teach quilting) prompted me to cle an. My small sewing area was getting really crowded. STUFF EVERYWHERE!!! I am sure all of yours are neat and tidy with no stuff stacked to the ceiling!! I managed to bag up 3 garbage bags of fabric, rulers, and other stuff and in the process, straightened up and clean out. I sent fabric that I can't believe I ever bought. Getting rid of it gets rid of the guilt that I will not be using it. It will be used to make beautiful quilts by SOMEONE ELSE!!

Things look slightly more tidy now, especially the closet . Tell me---do you think this is the before? or the after picture?Hey all you Wackies--I challenge you to clean and give your extra fabrics to Ann. She needs it for the ladies in Mexico and you benefit by getting rid of fabric you don't even like anymore, but feel guilty about not using. I know you love a good challenge---Take all to Kathy L's and Ann will pick it up.

At This Time of Year

Before you begin the movie, please turn off the sidebar player. Thank you!
Happy Holidays everyone! The Wackies have so much to be thankful for......with all our families and friends and all of our blogging buddies. This year has flown by and was filled with great activities, projects, swaps, purchases, some triumphs and a few losses.  I wanted to take a moment to remember our girlfriend, Jerri who passed away nine months ago.  There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about her or laugh at something she said or did.  Jerri was such a large part of my life.  She was the sister I never had, the best friend and traveling buddy and she gave great advice, too.  Jerri was the life of the party and I'm so blessed to have known her. Above is a little movie I made to share with our group a little after Jerri passed away.  It's a snippet of her antics and love of living. I'm sharing it with you in the hopes that it will lift your spirits, make you laugh or just spread a…
