I have to say I am really enjoying the retreat. Tomorrow I will get to have Eleanor Burns new Barn Quilt book signed. There will be a tour of AccuQuilt as well as lunch. Then back to County Traditions for open sewing. It is taking me much longer to cut the fabric, so I maybe finishing my drunkard's path at home. I am gleaning a lot of information and hope to retain it all.
The Accuquilt and Country Traditions staff are the nicest people.
Well I am having an awesome time and really wish you all could enjoy this with me. I will post pic hopefully next week (if I can stay home long enough lol). I really did need a fun get away just focusing on what I want to do and learn.
Have a great day and God Bless All of YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

May 14th Held At: Lander High School Field House
Breast Cancer fundraiser with Craft booths, informational vendors, bake sale, silent and live auctions, games, door prized, goodie bags, lunch and more!
I have been doing a bit of traveling and just had to do a show. This one is an awesome fundraiser. So far I have seen my grandson, god-son (whose wedding I am able to attend on Sunday), my son, my ex's parents. Taken a few pic...to up load later. A few finishes to upload later.
So far on my trip I have run into hot weather, snow on the mountain, rain and beautiful sunny skies. I saw a moose, a deer, a big boulder that had fallen down the mountain. Driven on a road that had construction and was just like slime, this was really scary, especially after I saw a semi being towed up the stretch of road.
I have had so much fun, seeing family and friends I haven't seen in over 10 years. We will have a special reunion with four of us who used to play cards and have lunch every week. Then I moved, then Anna moved, then Cheryl moved and Karrie still lives here. This will be the first time we have been together in 25 years or there about.
I love the mountains and maybe God will call me back out here some day, right now we just try to survive from show to show. I had a job interview last week and still no word on if I have been hired. I have to keep the faith, so far my expenses have been extremely low. I have wonderful friends and family who have provided food and lodging.
Almost retreat time for Accuquilt!!!!!!!!! I am so excited. I can bring my baby go and extra fabric for the dies that they will have available. I get to see Eleanor Burns at the barn raising!!!!!!!!! This is just turning out to be the most awesome spring and summer.
Have a great day and God Bless All of YOU!!!!!!!

This week the craft fairs are at Miller Hill Mall and Eden Prairie Mall. I am in Duluth this weekend for the craft show and it is so Windy up here. I need to post the pic I took the last time. Lake Superior has the strangest shades of color in it. I called the City and they referred me to the tourism office. I guess when it is really windy it stirs up the bottom of the lake. So today it is just way to windy to tell the colors, but 2 weeks ago was a beautiful calm day. From the Copper top church lookout one could see the blue water with strips of brown and green streaks in the water. All my pic are on the big laptop so will have to post some pic after Easter. I also got a wonderful early birthday pressie from Jeanette pic will hopefully follow in the next couple of weeks. Her blog is http://jeanettespatch.blogspot.com can't seem to get the link to link it to her name. The mall has been busy but I was able to finish repairing and redoing the quilt label on Tyler's quilt. His dad stopped by and now the quilt is on it's way home. Not much getting done in the stitchery/sewing I am putting edging on a couple of towels for gifts, but so far today the computer games have won out. Well have a great day and God Bless all of YOU!!!!!

There is a craft fair at Burnsville Mall and HarMar Mall. Should be a fun time and lots of fun things to see. Today at the mall is fairly quiet, so will do a little surfing, little stitching, a little crocheting and a little reading in between the mass of customers I will serve today. Hope all is well and bright sun shiney in your world today, it is a gorgeous day here. Have a great day and God Bless all of YOU!!!!!!!

This weekend there are two craft fairs we are participating in. One in Burnsville Center in Burnsville Minnesota and the other at the Miller Hill Mall in Duluth. Turned out to be a beautiful day here in Central Minnesota. I guess there were 4 inches of snow on the ground this morning in the north country. Not much going on in the sewing world, seems everytime I cut even a corner of fabric I end up being gone for 2 weeks on end. Well this time I am able to leave it on the table for when I can cut the rest of the vignette bom out. So hard sometimes when I am working 12 hour days to just keep up on everything. I have 3 more weeks until Easter weekend, when I will have Easter dinner, and hopefully a fully organized sewing room. :) My Go Baby has arrived, I won't see it until Sunday when the craft fair is over, but it is here. I am hoping to be able to buy a die and a cutting mat on the way home so I can play with it a little. If not then the following week I should have enough money to buy the dies. I am so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Happy April Fools Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have a great day and God Bless all of YOU!!!!!!!!!

An awesome car show will be in Duluth MN this weekend. It is called the World of Wheels and has something for everyone.
Not much quilting done this week, finishing up the families tax returns. It is so nice working one job, and as long as the shows stay constant I can do this over the summer. Hello house and quilting. it has been 6 years since I have been able to do a lot of anything other than work.
Have a great weekend an God Bless All of YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been away from the computer and news pretty much all day. I just caught bits and pieces. After watching the news this evening, the devastation is something we just can't fathom. All I can do is Pray and ask for Angels to protect all those who need protection and help in being found.
When something like this happens even though it is far away, it makes us so much more thankful for our family, friends and that we have not had to live through anything as horrendous as what many countries seem to be seeing right now.
God Bless all of you and Keep you safe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If your bored this weekend, there is a craft fair at the Blaine Sports Center. I am going to find some new crafty ideas.
So far not working 2 jobs has been interesting. I worked on family projects all last week and this week I have been sick all week with some sort of Virus. Let's see what next week brings. Hopefully the backing on the heart quilt, A log cabin quilt finished (both girls are coming over to finish their quilts next week). They are really close Jen (no blog) and Dusty (no blog) have all their squares almost finished. Good thing my living room is picked up were going to lay out the blocks and see what pattern they would like the log cabin to go.
I have decided to just do one job for now, hopefully my weekend work will continue to blossom and provide all my support.
Only 3 months until my retreat. I am still excited and it is paid for so, when I start looking for work after Easter, I can still go, just need gas money. :)
God is truly doing some amazing things in my life. So far my neck hasn't been off, as far as the dizziness goes. Back still hurts but then I am trying to build up to an hour a day on the Wii, I guess that will do it. So far almost 12 lbs down, trying to make 25 by my God-son's wedding in May.
Have a great day and God Bless all of YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

I saw the GO retreat advertised and my wishful thinking was oh how I really, really, really want to GO. WELL....I am GOING!!!!!
I have wanted a GO for a long time. The retreat will give me a chance to learn all about it and see if it will work with my neck problems. Then next fall when I have more extra money I will be able to buy one.
Just an update, since I have not posted in a lonnnnnnnng time. I quit my job, with all the changes and mis-information directed towards me. The stress level was unbelievable. I am now down to 1 job and that is the craft fairs. This will give me a little more time to exercise, focus on spiritual growth (I just keep forgetting to rely on God, for He truly has the best in mind for me), finding my house and QUILTING :). Sometimes we have to let go of something important to move on to bigger and better plans that He has instore for us. Psalm 91 shall become my prayer during the next couple weeks of transition.
I received the most awesome package from The Quilting Pirate. I am still on the road a bit so not sure if I will get a pic uploaded. Thank you for picking me. :)
And on her blog I found the most gorgeous BOM, obviously I am a little behind just finding it today, but have a look.
Not much new in my little center of the Earth, but transition and change is always hard. I have a different kind of anxiety (any prayer would help), as this is the first time I will have to rely on the craft fairs to support me until I find permanent work. The nice thing is in 3 weekends I can make up the difference in pay. LOL just have to stay away from the quilt shops and Joann's on those weekends.
Beautiful day here in Minnesota!!!!!!!!! All that snow (and more on the way)and a bright sunny sky.
Have a great day and God Bless all of YOU!!!!!!!!
I am so excited, I know time flies and it will be June before I know it, hopefully the weekend will not pass in a blurrrrrr. I have to remember the camera. :) have a blessed day, for we are servants to all masters to none.
