Life has definitely taken me to places I never thought I would go to....but nothing more exciting than where I am right now! Welcome to my world...

Much ado about nothing.........

Where has the month gone???? Last month of course! I have been to Pennsylvania to see my many brothers and sisters... and mother, they were all introduced to the Son in law...who was in on furlough from Iraq...and since the family is so large...only about half had met him at the wedding. A good time was had by all, I bought way too much food for the family party we had last Sunday afternoon... but when some of my sisters...have over 10 kids... nothing goes to waste! We sent home sodas and food with just about everyone.I ejnoyed seeing all of my family.Only two brothers couldn't make it so it was a good time. The son in law took it all in stride. Its a good thing his family likes to show up to visit.... I told him he'd fit right in.... except in our family, they all bring their kids too!So way more little kids around. We will all be getting together for a nephew's wedding later in May...and it is in Pennsylvania...where all but two of us still live. I have done so little sewing except hand quilting on my big quilt.But I have been searching for an older model Bernina...to make up for the one I had in South Africa...and left behind... as it was 220 electricity.If any one knows where I can find an 830 reasonable.... I have been bidding on everyone that comes up on ebay...but lost out on all of them so far.At least I am being somewhat productive. I have just sorted fabrics...and cut up some scraps...like Libby did, she just inspired me to go through one small box ...but at least it is done when I do get my machine.I have a featherweight in TX....but since we won't be heading up there until later in June, I am cutting or "stripping" until then. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. My dear son in law is returning to Iraq tomorrow...so I am helping with the home front. Keep us in your prayers!

Nice to hear from you again. I'm sure you are appreciated by your daughter as it must be really hard without her husband.

ps Strips will come in usual when you get back behind the machine :0)

What fun to spend time with so many of your family members. Get togethers like that can really be a blast. I'll keep your SIL as well as the rest of the family in my good thoughts. Please give him a special thank you from me for his service *s*

Please thank your son-in-law for his service in our behalf!

Sounds like you had a good time with your family. That is fantastic!

Must be rough to see your son-in-law go back to Iraq. I'm thinking of you all!

Good luck finding a Bernina. Have you thought of advertising in the classifieds of your local paper? Maybe someone locally will see it and sell you one.

Hi Colleen, it's gotta be hard to be without the sewing machine. I can't even imagine what that would be like. Good luck, hope you win one soon! Hugs, Finn
