Really you must see it!!! I've got save up my pennies as it is a "must-have"!!

Look what we......


awoke to on Monday morning!!! Oh my!! almost 5 inches of snow! It is oh so pretty! But boy does our state(SC) ever "shut down" when it snows! I actually didn't even go out in it till today because of the ice......crutches + ice= disaster for me! My sweet husband got an extra long weekend so that was kinda nice. The next day they all went in late and one of the guys fell and broke 2 ribs. Needless to say I started a pot of homemade Chicken Noodle soup as soon as Brian left that day for work in hopes to cheer him up when he arrived home. He has taken some for lunch everyday since then.
I'll try to get more pictures of the snow up in my Flicker Album soon.
I've also got to upload a picture of my 1st finish for 2011. I started it in Nov. or was it Oct.? Anyway I'll need it to carry all of my "finished UFO's" to show at the quilt guild meeting.
We're actually meeting an extra time this month(this Sat.) to do some charity sewing.
In the meantime I've got to "catch up" on all my Aus. friends. Been praying for them daily. Such a sad thing for so many.

Peeking in to say "Hello"............I can hardly believe how long it has been since I've posted.....it is shameful. There have been so big changes in my life, and I just haven't taken the time to post like I should. I love blog-land, but I'm finding it hard to keep up with. I've been reading every "now and then" and then I start to feel guilty so I retreat again. I have lost track of too much here. I am going to try again for a bit and see if I can get back in the swing of it. I've reminded myself that I don't have to type a novel everytime I post....maybe that will help.
Oh the sewing/stitching subject.......hmmmmm.....well my quilt guild decided to issue a UFO challenge this year.....ha! My list is a sad sad sight to be sure. I quit writing after filling up about four pages 16 items on each page. What is it with me? I seem to get "distracted" by a new project before finishing the current one. This is a habit I must break! I'll try again this year to list my "finishes" on my side bar. I hope you will come back here and cheer me on. I'll need the encouragement!

hugs, Terri

Yikes....August is

gone already! Jeepers time sure does fly......my parents told me it would.



Well I'm almost finished with this quilt.....I know...I know....it is taking me FOREVER!! Didn't I tell you I work slow? It is really so cute. It is quilted now and has the prairie points on it. No pictures of that yet. I just have to press the bias binding(1st time to do that!), and then attatch it to the quilt.....oh....and then there is the lable that has to be done. I just cut my finger fixing my dinner so I guess I'll wait till tomorrow to work on it more......Sure don't want to get any blood on it. My finger sure is sore too.
I have finished other things since beginning this quilt......I'll try to upload more pictures to my Flicker album.
Now I need to catch up on reading my favorite blogs.........
more later!

Busy....busy......busy!!!!(help!)

I can't seem to do it all!!! Anyhoooooo...........
These have become come These....aren't they cute?
I have about 10 more but life keeps getting in the way of my stitching time!


I've also finished a few baby gifts.....maybe I'll show you when I can find the card to load them on the computer ;>
Yep.........pretty sure I know where the card is....it's just taking the time to do it. Part of this was done at my friend Carly's house(remember that trip?)........We got alot done but we chatted more than stitched.....imaging that! lol I'll be going back soon as most of the quilt is on her design wall(good excuse to go back) BTW..........she likes to pamper me........Jerry(her man) is one lucky fellow!



I do have something else that has slowed my stitching time......I had to take a Continuing Education class to keep my OTR/L license(sp?...I'm tired) current.....and I've been thinking of going back to work on a PRN(as needed) basis. Just say a prayer I hear and listen/obey God's plan. Usually he has to knock me up-side the head for me to get it right. More on the job later(maybe...)

BTW...........paying attention in class today was extra hard as a sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet dear friend of mine, Camille, was having surgery. I wish you all could meet her. She is a doll and so talented. Please pray for complete healing and recovery.

hugs, Terri

Cute lil' girls have been


consuming my attention for a bit!! But now they are all home and I'm trying to get back into my sewing. Jennifer(right) was here all last week, and Makayla(left) was just here for a day. We stayed very busy!! They just grow up way too fast. I let Jennifer borrow #1 in my Trixie Belden book series to read and now she is hooked!! She took #2 home with her too as she was almost finished with the 1st one when she left. My sisters and I read Trixie books when we were kids. Loved them!! I need to find more of them.
If everything goes as I hope I'll be going to Sumter, SC on Sunday to spend a couple of days sewing with my friend Carly. I'm "sew" excited to get away........even if it is only 1 hr. away from home. I'm going to try to get some of my stitchery stuff together to take too.
I'm having withdrawls(sp?) as I haven't had a chance to read my bloggy news from you all......maybe tonight.......now I think I'm going to go get some more pillow slips done.
hugs, Terri
