Crafty Stuff

Hey, y'all,
Well, I went to the eye surgeon's office today and he took a look at my eye and said it is improving. I told him, yes, it is feeling better each day. I met a very interesting lady in the waiting room, and we chatted while waiting. She has four children, two of whom are grown and left the nest. Two at home are 16 year old twin boys, who, she said, quite often want to wear the same shirt or shoes and I suggested she just hide the shirt for a while so they can't argue over it. Ha. They get along quite well most of the time, though. The two older ones are a boy and a girl. She had her girl first, and then the three boys. Carol did just the opposite and had her three boys first, then her daughter.

My Sunday School class is getting together this afternoon for some snacks and a movie, or just to talk (we do that quite well, thank you very much) :)

I had an opportunity to chat with my good friend, Ina Ray, for a while the other night, and she is getting better after her bout with breast cancer. It is always wonderful to talk with friends and catch up on things, isn't it?

This morning, I finished up the front door wreath I have been working on, and it is now gracing my front door with wishes for Spring to come. I made a vellum butterfly to go on it (look at upper right of wreath) and hopefully the butterfly won't take off in some of the winds we are having right now or even later. Bow is made of decorative mesh purchased at Hobby Lobby.
Quilt my sister, Margaret, made for me and gave to me several years ago.
 As you can see, my sister was a much more talented quilter than I can ever be. Her quilts were made by hand and had thousands of tiny stitches. I decided to begin using the quilt, and then whatever is left of it when I pass on can pass on to someone else. 

Well, folks, that is about it for today. Still lots of daylight left and I have some other things to do yet before sleepy time. This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for now. Much love to each of you, my friends and family. Bye for now. More later.
