I know, I know

I haven't written since October something. Desert Mesa spinning retreat was great fun and was an extra day, so that made it even better. The following weekend was my Quilting Retreat. I had just managed to recover from the spinning retreat in time to go to the quilting one. Don't know wether it is sad or not that I go on these retreats and then spend two days recovering. It used to take only one day to recover but I was younger then. I have been babysitting little Miss Chatterbox and trying to sort out my house. Unfortunately it is really difficult to do these things on the same day so the house is still a disaster ( worse than usual). I have been trying to pare down my stash of knitting and quilting supplies. I took a large tote full of fabric to give away at the quilting retreat and I keep taking things to Knit night for some one else to stash. Met a Friend for Coffee on Tuesday. We haven't seen each other in over a year. We have decided to try and meet every Tuesday afternoon for coffee and knitting. We have a lot of catching up to do and there is always knitting to do. Jackie and I try to get together at least once a week to quilt although one day we re-organized her shop so no quilting accomplished that day. I have several projects that need to be finished. This includes two wedding quilts that I better get done as I have another one to do for a May wedding. Mind you the Girl my nephew is marrying is Menenit. I Don't know if they are the women who made the quilt for john and Janine but if so mine won't be a patch on that one but it will be made with love. Now I need to find out what colours they like. I am not knitting for Christmas this year. My adult children don't really want anything but I will do a couple of things for the DGDs.
