a very sad day

January of this year began the trial that my son and his wife are going thru. Their 18 month old son was jumping on the bed his mother told him to stop but he fell and got a black eye. Her dad saw it and called CPS and said my son hit him because he was mad that they moved out of his house. He also said their house was dirty and they had no food. The sheriff came and took the boy. Then CPS made a surprise visit and saw that they had food and the house was clean. They have been working with…

possible job

Well I went for an interview this afternoon.  At a private camp ground sort of like Thousand Trails.  They are called Cowlitz timber trails.  Only drawback is that it only pays $10/hr and I would have to work Thursday thru Monday.  Will have to talk to my dh.  I will hear by 5:00 pm. today. I will have to pray about it.

God is Good all the Time

Hi Gals,

Sorry haven't been on here for awhile.  I am at the library using their computer and still looking for work.  On the upside I have been able to do some quilting and will post my quilt next time.  I took a picture with my camera and forgot to bring with me.  We are beginning to see a lot of activity with our strawberry pots.  We have had people coming by and buying them.  I have sold 5 in the last three days.  God is Good all the Time.

Bernina 440QE

I welcomed my new baby home last friday (A Bernina 440 QE).  Yes I finally have her.  The woman I bought my 180 E on ebay from knew I was wanting one.  She called me and asked if I wanted to trade the 180 e with the embroider machine she had sold me for the bernina 440qe with the stitch regulator and walking foot she just acquired.  It was no question (yes).  She sent it to me and I got it Friday.  I have played with her and love her.  The machine is newer so much quieter.

Olisio Iron

I realize what a wimp I am.  I got my new Olisio Iron on thursday last week. I used it at our crafting bee on saturday and now my right arm, shoulder and neck are sore like I lifted weights.  I like that it does not have to be lifted up but it is sure heavy.  I guess my arm will get a work out.  I will have to try to be ambidextrous so I can work out both arms.…

Lesson Learned

Wow!!! Were we in for a shock on Friday. We went to UPS to ship one of our pots and found out that our box is now considered oversize inside dimensions 24 x 24 x 47 becomes outside dimenions of 25 x 25 x 48.  This quadruples the weight of the box.  42 lbs becomes 168 lbs. It would cost $315 to ship an $80 pot to Ardmore, OK.  If it were one inch less it would cost $167.  The gentleman suggested we ship on greyhound.  I did not know you could do such a thing.  Greyhound will ship the same box…

Hi Gals,

I had a fantastic time at the sewing and stitchery expo in Puyallup.  I was a good girl and only spent $40.  This was my budget for the show.  Got a yard of hello kitty fabric for my granddaughters quilt ($20/yd) wow.  Now to decide what to do with it.  It will be the focus fabric and will fill with pinks, teals and lemon yellow.  I am thinking a bear's paw.

Annual Prime Timer's Christmas Dinner

Today is the day of our annual Prime Timer's (55+) dinner here at the church.  Since I use to be the food service manager at a Christian Conference Center they have asked me to cook for them for the 4th year in a row now.  My dh and I have really enjoyed it as doing special meals for smaller groups was what we missed when we left camp.  I am making beef tips(roasted the beef roast yesterday; and cut into chunks last night) with mushrooms (which I saute in the beef juice and deglaze with red…
