Remember When...

Last weekend my husband and I went antiquing in Springfield, Missouri. I came across some memories. Memories of being stranded under a hot dryer for 30 - 40 minutes waiting for a head full of 2 inch curlers to dry. What we will do for a good hair day!!!!! Thank goodness that they invented blow dryers. It takes me less than 5 minutes now. I did do more reading back then though. The dryer in the top photo had a price tag of $69.00. The dryer in the bottom photo had a price tag of $10.00. Remember the saying "one person's junk is another person's treasure". Needless to say I didn't bring these treasures home.

What A Great Guild!

My daughter and I just did a guild talk for the Starlight Quilters Guild in Mission, Kansas. This is one happening FUN group! When it was time for show and tell the line practically went around the room. They get things done! The group also added 80 quilts just that night to Project Linus! They warmed up the group telling jokes. I followed with passing out some chocolate and my talk and lots of quilts for my own show and tell. If you are not in a guild and live close by to this one please try this one will love it!

This is a photo of my quilts all neat and tidy in their bags ready to show.

This is a photo after the talk. No problem though with great help they were all back in their bags in about 5 minutes.

Have a great day! Amy

Time to say goodbye once again

Time to put up my snowmen collection for another year. I should really keep them up all the way through January because it is definitely snowman weather outside. It is funny how you are so ready for the holidays and all things holiday related to go away...fudge, peanut brittle, extra pounds and snowmen. I am now back into my normal routine....designing, sewing and alas exercising to lose the sugar pounds. I like normal! Normal always feels good!

Shrek the Musical

Don't walk but run to the musical Shrek. My daughter and I saw the national touring production at the Music Hall in Kansas City. It was wonderful. We didn't know what to expect. We both couldn't quit smiling through the whole thing! We both have seen a lot of musicals and this ranks up there with my top three. I loved it!
