Todays title isn't something I am often able to brag about. But today is a glorious quiet kid free day. Thanks to my sister in-law. I watch my beautiful niece yesterday so she took on my two rascals today. Bless her heart. I went for a walk at the park and it went by so much quicker by myself. It was a beautiful morning. Turtles were sun bathing on the banks, birds and squirrels were everywhere.
I did a little fabric and scrapbook shopping. Found some great stuff 75% off at Hancock Fabric. Got some fresh vegies and fruit at the grocery store and came home and had a lovely veggie salad. So now what do I do with the few hours I have left....Hummmmm....SEW. That sounds great. House work can wait until tomorrow. LOL.

Here is a picture of our camp site. We went to a place called Cedar Ridge Campgrounds. It is close to Red Bay, Alabama. We had a good time. We took the kids swimming down at the river. It was a little mucky but a nice way to cool off. It was a warm weekend. We definately had to layer on the bug spray. No one got a tick or many bites. Yeah. We had a lot of torches and mosquito coils burning. I'm pretty sure the smoke from the fire helped too. They are bulldozing around there to make way for cabins. They told us that they found some Indian arrow heads and an ax head in great shape. We looked around for a while but didn't have any luck finding any thing. We will go back. It was a great place and everyone was very friendly. And the firewood was free. Not many places give that away for free. We are checking into other places close by to go to also. I guess the camping bug bit us. I can say that we will be buying an air mattress before we go again. Sleeping on the ground is for the animals. LOL.

Ok so today is a hectic day today. I have a million things to do and unfortunately none of it is sewing. BOO HOO. We are going camping this weekend with my brother inlaw and his family. About an hour from where we live. It will be fun, but gosh why is it always the woman's responsibility to get everything together. And of course I have to kids to watch while I get all this stuff together. Woe is me. LOL. Thank god for lists. So pray we don't run into any snakes or wild cats. So I am off to the store...Yeah...

New blogger

Hello everyone...I am new to this. I have a blog on myspace but this looks like it might be easier and more fun. I met a friend on myspace that has a blog on here. So I thought I would try it. Here is a picture of the last quilt I made about 4 weeks ago for a dear friend. It is a snow ball quilt. It was fun to make.
I am currently working on a quilt for my bed. I have been makeing quilts for 3 years and this is the first chance I have had to work on something for myself. I will post a picture when I am done.
I also love to cook. I am a stay at home mom. And very blessed to be able to do so in this day and age. Most people my age don't want to. I love being able to be home for them if they need me.
I guess i m gonna post this and try to figure out exactly how to use it. Can't wait to hear from fellow quilters. God Bless.
