A Favorite Photo

When I was going through some boxes recently, I found a slide that was an old favorite. I brought it along when we went to NC, because I knew our friend Earl King had the equipment to scan slides. He sent it to me today, via email. Even if it wasn't of my son and me, I'd think it was a really sweet photo.

This was taken just about a week before Chris' first birthday (that would be July of 1976). That means I'm 25 years old in this photo...oh, to be that young again, LOL! Can you believe those yellow pants?

Creative Chaos

I'm at it again...auditioning fabrics and making a mess. I do love playing in the fabrics, though. It can amuse me for hours - mixing, matching, analyzing... It's an illness, I tell ya.

PS - Anyone need one of those sidewinder things - you know for filling your bobbins off the machine? I found out after I got it that it's not compatible with my Viking.

Daffodils and hyacinths push from the ground
Forsythia bursts forth
Lilac buds grow daily
Fish babies appear

Sweet Genevieve & The Walk

Above, second from the right, you will see my youngest daughter, Genevieve. She and three good friends did the Susan G. Komen Walk last year, on a chilly, chilly day, departing from the Mall of America. (You can tell they are all well-insulated under those t-shirts, can't you?)

This year, they've expanded their group, with a special focus on the family of one of Gen's dear friends - both of his parents passed away within the last three months, and one sister is battling cancer right now.

This is a link to her "give" page:

I'm hoping that she can pass her goal - I know she did more than this last year. It's a tough year financially for all of us, but if you have just a little extra to would be so appreciated.

Have I mentioned lately how proud I am of each of my children? I am so very, very lucky that they are all dear, passionate, and intelligent human beings AND the two in-law children are also great additions to the family. (And I'm here to tell you, it was LUCK, not skill, on my part.)
