Lincoln Civil War Quilt

I REALLY need this! I placed an order - it is on backorder right now. And the "headline" fabric for the backing is great. I can't wait.
DD1 one has been moving all week. Dad, future son-in-law2 , et all will help this weekend. I am happy for her and my 5 grand kids. New home, new memories, new life. They have been through a lot in the past 4 years. I could go on a tirade about desertion, no child support, etc, but I won't. Happy new Life!!
FYI I have a new granddog with DD2. His name is Chuy(chewy). The cutest Chihuahua ever! Will post picture of him and "the" ring soon.
Happy sewing everyone!!!

It has been such an eventful summer. Lots of family stuff going on. I just didn't feel like talking about it all. But you know what? It never ends, so I will just plow ahead!

This was another Hatteras weekend and a lot of fun. In between the fun, guess what I did? I took about six years of "Craftworks" which later turned into "Create & Decorate" magazines with me. In the interest of space, I started tearing them up. Ripping out projects I really, really, like and pitching the rest. This saves so much room, and I should have been doing this all along. I subscribe to so many craft, painting, quilting magazines that it becomes a storage issue eventually. I don't want to look like one of those "hoarder" people! So that is my mission - pare down the mags and books. Then I will work on the paints, the wood, the fabric, etc. Maybe I'll be able to think better if I am more organized - yea right!

DD2 became engaged this weekend. If she will let me, I may post a pic of the ring later. It is beautiful. And my future SIL is great too. He is such a nice guy. I am so happy for them.

I HAVE been sewing. I need to take pictures and post them. If nothing else, it proves to me that I am accomplishing something. Speaking of that I better get busy on something right now!
