What Has Been Going On


As you know I was planning on doing this blog last night, but my 2 year old grandson what at my house when I got home from work, so I had to spend a lot of time with him.  After dealing with him a getting him in the bed, I fell a sleep.

So this is what I have been doing since I last blogged about my Caleb’s Class Retreat.  The weekend after the retreat in the middle of the week I took time to hang with my girls Charlene and Pat and other bus riding people to crews down the river and to eat crabs.


The trip was to Hurdock, MD and the peddle boat took us down Cabin Creek river.  The food was good and the carbs nice a meaty.  We were at Suicide Bridge Restaurant, were there is a great stories about the bridge and the suicides that happen.  I did not what to be one of the stories so I stayed off the bridge.


After this nice little on day trip, that weekend I had a family reunion down in Fredericksburg, VA, did not take many pictures of the family, put we did talk about me doing a family quilt for each head-of –the family (at cost).  During the ride down there and back, I worked on the binding for the black & white and was able to finish up coming up the road (no I was not driving).


Summer League bowling has come to an end and tonight is the Banquet.  Looking forward to that and hanging with a couple of my other girlfriends.  Wait until you see the pictures from that tomorrow.

Well I have to go and get dressed, so I will blog you tomorrow early because I plan to hit the sewing room if I can.

The Slow Quilter 


  1. Oh, the black and white quilt looks very interesting - shake that out so we can see all of it.

  2. That looks like a fun trip. The crabs look delicious. Can't wait to see all of the black and white quilt with the binding on.

  3. They really named the bridge Suicide Bridge?! I hope that doesn't encourage anyone with sad ideas. Glad you didn't go that route! BTW, I am also a quilter who loves to read on my Kindle. I try to review a book every Friday, but I don't always get a book done every week. it's a fun goal, though.
