The Birthday Winners...

And the winners are...

Me and My Stitches who said "Happy Birthday! My wish for you is a very productive quilting year with your stitching and blogging friends (old & new!). Hope you have a great day!"


Linda C who said "Happy belated birthday! My birthday was late dec, so we are both capricorns, the nicest of people!!! LOL"


I will keep their presents a surprise for when they receive them! Be sure to send me your addresses girls!

All of the wishes were so I read through them all, it was so nice to see that I have gotten to know most of you a little bit and some a bit more over the past few months since I have started blogging. How nice to have friends near and far who share the same joy of quilting that I do! Looking forward to another great year and getting to know you all a bit better!!


I was away helping my daughter and her husband move into their new home in Georgia last week. I was born in Georgia and it brought back many memories to go back...just driving on the highways brought back many memories of my brother and I giggling in the old car we had. We sang silly songs constantly while on road trips, giggling all the while! Who remembers the song..."Ooooohhhhh eeeee, ooo aaa aaaa, ting tang Wally Wally bing bang...ting tang ooo aaa aaa ting tang Wally Wally bing bang!" We sang that for hours on our way to camp or go to my Memaw's house. Now I will add to those memories of GA and think of the nice week we had moving the kids into their first home. We painted and painted, organized and painted some more! We left them settled in the main rooms ready to start their new adventure. Here's a few pics of the house since I didn't get any sewing done to report on!

The living room...very elegant with a steel grey/ brown wall and tan walls.

The kitchen wall ( this paint was already there !) that we put together as a buffet area for decor and serving food at a party. It looks a bit bright in the picture and it is in person as well, but it's a very cheerful color! It grew on us more each day.

Me and my daughter,

And the happy owners of the house!

This is a panoramic picture taken with an iPhone of Savannah Rapids Park. It is a beautiful place they can bike and walk. We spent about an hour there and it was so beautiful! The water was ocean blue in some areas!

Thanks for stopping by and again, thanks for all the nice birthday wishes,
