Lauren's Graduation

Ok so it has been a long time since I have posted anything. We attended Lauren's graduation at Western Oregon. I get to brag just a little. She graduated Cum Laud with a BA in Anthropology. I am so proud of her. I remember when she was a newborn, I thought my little girl will go to college and study what she loves. I never finished.
She has become an amazing young women.
I have to say also I am very proud of my husband, Lee. He received his Master in computer systems management.
Next up is Mychal. I am proud him too. His day is coming in a couple of years.
I have a wonderful family and I am one lucky lady. Thanks for letting me brag on them a little.

What a week!

Ok, so I have had better weeks. First, I fell in the shower and a concussion and black eye followed. Then I have to rewrite all the block of the month patterns because of a glitch. Alright enough of the poor, poor, pitiful me. I guess if I have learned something over the years is sometimes you win and sometimes you sing the blues but at least the blues don't stay forever.
I am glad i have so many wonderful friends and famliy that care about me. So I will take the good with the bad.
As for the block of the month; it will be ready on time but at least it was caught now instead of later.

What happened to your eye?

I know I am going to hear that a lot when I come back to work. Well, here is what happened:

I was in the shower on Saturday and I had a hot flash. Next thing I know I am on the shower floor telling Lee, "I don't know how I got here." Long story short i have a concussion. I have been home taking it easy while my wonderful family and friends run the store. They have done a terrific job. I feel very lucky to have these great people in my life. They have bossed me around to take care of myself.

Thank you all for you kind words and concern. A special thanks to all that helped at the shop and even those who told me to stay home. Just goes to show quilters are wonderful people.

See you soon,
