Intaxicaton: Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realize it was your money to start with.

As usual so much is going on at one time around here. The biggest most wonderful news is that this darling young woman PASSED her Nursing boards. She is now a BSN/RN. wowwwieee. If you sew your finger with your sewing machine she will fix you right up. (I have personally done this only 3 times).


To celebrate the destruction of plastic in my sewing room and to prove to Sir Quilt Dude that I can slap Mod Podge on anything…I decoupaged this little folding table. Further celebration ensued with the purchase of this Big Shot Pro. WHOA BABY. I will be choppin up those 18 bags of scraps now! 


 I am leaving in 10 minutes for Asheville with the new nurse. We are going to see DD#1 and my precious SIL. They are building a house we want to see what they are up to. Also Emily’s dear friend just had a baby. I whipped her up this little minky strippy quilt. Better quilt to follow. FOR THE RECORD. I now feel about minky the way I feel about plastic. I hope I never see it again. My apologies to the babies of the world.

    I just tried Mod Podge for the first time in the last couple of weeks. That stuff is addictive.

    Minky is a nightmare to handle isn’t it? What a mess it makes! Congratulations to your daughter! That’s a big accomplishment!

    Oh, I agree totally about the minky! I think it is the devil. I used it to back a bed sized quilt and there was no way to work with it. My mom and I had to tie it together because it was so shift and evil acting!

    Congrats to the nurse. You must be so proud of her.

    Have a great trip.

    Congratulations to your nurse!!! I sent you an email but it’s sent to your business email as, for some reason, I was unable to find your home one….DUH. Looking forward to Thursday….but until late tomorrow (Tuesday), I won’t have email contact on too regular a basis. I will call you either Tuesday night or Wednesday during the day. Maybe you and Gene can set things up in advance. Hopefully, we can do this in a way that will make it easy for my friend to drop me off…since I have no clue about the area and don’t like driving where I am totally unfamiliar with roads, etc. I’m sure we’ll have a blast!!! Hope the new-house-in-progress was nice…I’m sure it was!!!
