To ALL the Quiltmamas

You gals are simply THE BEST!!!  Thank you from the bottom of my <blushing> heart.

Each one of you is SO (sew) busy and yet you’ve made time to stitch together a 50th birthday gift for me.  It is gorgeous, FUN and will be treasured!!!

Thank you also for treating me to dinner at “The Lamb” even if it was without the beady eyed watchful lamb…  It was GOOD to see you and catch up.  I know you’re lives are busy and I appreciated the time you spent with me.

Knowing you girls has certainly enriched my life.  I count myself lucky indeed to call you friends and you’re each a blessing!  Thank you, Quiltmamas.

Love, Pam

October progress and projects

Finding time to slow down, just a little, to take the time to do those “small” projects…?!

Our mailbox was unattractive.  It had been painted the same mesquite color the shutters were, once upon a time.  The mailbox sort of sets the tone from the curb, and since the “tone” here has been evolving, it was time to indulge that mailbox.

And, our master bath had a leak.  The old shower was a 1980’s fiberglass surround that had cracked and worsened.  The floor was warping and the situation needed to be addressed, sooner than later.

While the studio project has been a once in a lifetime adventure, Scott and I are not unfamiliar with DIY projects, and our master bath was going to be a new one.  Tile.  Taking out the shower equated to walls and floor going down to the studs and floor joists…  There was some doing, some UN-doing and some re-doing, and it’s far from finished.  But, we’re making progress, pleased with the results and still in LOVE!

Meanwhile, I take a few stitches when I can, have been prepping our garden areas for the colder weather, continue to take Jingle to the Beach regularly, do overtime cases and not only live life, but truly LOVE it…EVERY day!!!

Every day is an adventure and a blessing!!!
