posting practice

Hi again,
So I have garnered one very excellent follower already!  I love you Mom4! 

Today gardening!  Made some more little plants for Halloween.  (For those of you who are new to my blog, and that would be all of you, I love Halloween.  We dress up, usually as some Harry Potter characters, and decorate our garage entry and dispense candy from the driveway.  The local kids love that we "participate".  Last year we decorated like it was Professor Sprout and  Greenhouse 3 at Hogwarts.  We had plants that I  made up from clippings taken from our plants and avocado plants I'd started from pits to give out from the greenhouse.  The kids were very enthusiastic and even asked questions!  We do give out candy, too.) Anyway, today I made up 3 geraniums and 6 or 7 rosemary plants in yogurt containers.
    Our #1 son was here to help with yard work while his soon to be Mrs. was out shopping with her Mom to find a dress for the wedding.  We found out that our #2 son and his family will be coming for the wedding on Sept. 18th.  We are very excited!  We haven't seen them in a dozen years or so.  Our grandson from Florida is coming, and my Sis and her Hubby from SD will be here too.  Can't wait.
     Now I don't know if I'll be able to include a photo today.  I want to, but things I want don't happen that often.  I'm going to try to show off another of my previously made quilts.  We'll see...  But either way come back and check on my progress.

I did it!  (Don''t ask me how.) This is one of my "I Spy" quilts for Project Linus.

First Post, Yah!

Hello friends! 
Here I am at last, a new blogger!  I've been wanting to do this for a long time and just needed a little boost (technology wise) from a friend.  Thanks Sarah!  Sarah is my new DIL2b.  She has a blog at ... well, I'm too new at this to give you the address.  Give me a couple of days and I'll get that for you.

If this all works out, I will be showing cards I make and quilts I sew.  Sometimes I sew little quilts for cards, too.  The picture that I hope goes with this post was a piece of fabric that I quilted up for Project Linus to give to the Haitians after the earthquake.  Okay, I hear some of you wondering why  a kid from Haiti would want a quilt... it isn't cold there.  No, but after the quake they had to live outside, and a quilt could be comfy to sit on, or to use as a shade maker. I hope someone is loving it.  (Okay, the picture is at the bottom of the page.  I hope you can see it.)

So that is that for this post.  Hope it all goes according to plan.  Come on back and see what I've learned so far!
