Blogger is being very uncooperative and is not listing my pictures in the order that I put them, so I hope I get this right. It's been awhile since I blogged, I had good intentions, but it seems the less I work, the lazier I get....BUT Im back at work selling perfume, at least thru the holidays....if this economy doesnt pick up I probably wont have a job after Christmas, hard to sell a $80.00 bottle of perfume when people are hurting!!!! Anyways, this little ladybug is the cutest thing, Sharon surprised me with her at our sewing/birthday celebration....gee, Nancys birthday and I get gifts...I like that!!!!!
This picture is totally out of order, but as Im sure you have seen, because I think its on the news all over the country,we are on fire here in cali.....this fire is right in Sharon and Nancys backyard....its about 25 minutes from me, but we sure are getting the smoke, so I dont know how they are breathing down there. So much tragedy when homes are lost....its hard to be happy when so many are so sad.
OK...heres that square dance quilt Nancy taught us, my first big people quilt, remember, well, Red did her magic on it and I love it so much!!!! Shes amazing and if you need any quilting done give her a holler....she was even kind enough to put the borders on for me since I have been handicapped with the finger.
I went over and Sharon and I had a sewing day.....we made these darling little bags....and I made a big bag too, they are so much fun.....Sharon has made enough of these to gift everone is southern cal.......shes a bag makin machine!!!!! I just love the fabrics, they are so happy!
Heres a sampling of some of the goodies the gals brought back for me from market.....and Nancy sent me this awesome Quilting for Joy book in the mail, I had mentioned how I loved the Dasiy quilt months ago and she remembered.
Well, as I get ready to go to work today, Im thinking about the folks who are displaced from the fires, I know many people who live in Corona and Chino Hills and I pray for them and that thier homes are safe. Sometimes I have a bad habit of feeling sorry for myself.....like the other day I was whining about my finger and I saw a gal in a wheel chair and I felt 2 feet tall......and here Iam whining about having to clean my house before work, and 1000s are evacuated and hoping they have a house to go back too........God forgive me.
