WOM Spring Fling

Here I am today at Madison County Library using their computer. The library has DSL (I have dial up at home) and so is much faster to upload these pictures to Picasa.
Sherry and I decorated this table for WOM (Women on Mission) Spring Fling. Sherry grew the Irises in her garden. They were absolutely the most beautiful Irises I have ever seen. (I brought them home after the banquet).
You can click on WOM Spring Fling under My Pictures on the sidebar to view all the pictures. They are not very good pictures this time. They are all very dark. Each table was decorated differently, different theme, etc. There was "an evening in Paris", memories, beach, cowboy, snuggly bears, spring garden, and others. We had dinner, entertainment (songs) and two testimonies. It was a very nice evening.

Bridge in April

Just back yesterday evening from Sugarland. I was hostess at our monthly bridge club although we had it at Ellie's house. They tried to come to Leona before but then had to cancel because two of them couldn't come and I have NO substitues here. I served 'make your own' taco salad like Melissa serves at Compass Centre. They really liked it. Store bought cake for dessert since I was in Bryan all day Wednesday at doctor's.
We spent the night at Doug's and enjoyed our grandkids. Since Katie (2-1/2 yrs old) was born, the family has always endearingly called her Katie "bug". Well, now in day care they are learning their whole names. They asked Katie what her last name was and of course she said "BUG". LOL. She and Emily are just so sweet. Katie always wants to 'go to Grandma's house'.
Today I am resting.

Quilting Friends Retreat

The three of us (Kathy, Kathleen and Jerri; known as the Brat Pak) at Quilting Friends Retreat at Compass Centre in Mt. Calm. Wow, what fun. We laughed, sewed and ate. If you haven't been to Compass Centre you should make plans to do so. The food is wonderful! Melissa is a wonderful hostess, just SEW accommodating.
The quilt in the background is mine. At least the blocks are -- haven't put it together yet. I worked mostly on swap blocks for the WackyPac. Kathy and Kathleen had their laptops and communicated with the WackyPac members that were not there.
I hope to get all the pictures uploaded today. I was excited to get pictures of Shirley as she usually manages to elude the cameras. Monica and Kathy were crazy. Kathy was on such a high Saturday night that I thought we were going to have to give her some Prozac. LOL
Still haven't made an album of my quilts. Gotta get pictures of them. Going to Bryan tomorrow, to bridge in Sugarland on Thursday, decorate a table for WOM Spring Fling on Monday night. Maybe one day next week I will find a day to take the pictures.

I've been all over this internet today looking for free blog buttons, badges, and clip art. There is so much out there and my dial up is so slow. I found some glittery artwork after I saw Molly's blog. Really, tomorrow I must stay OFF this blogging thing and get ready to go on quilt retreat this weekend.

My New Camera

I'm practicing with my new camera.

Easter Sunday Morning

Surprise, it snowed in Leona last evening. Maybe three inches. It as the first time we've seen snow since we moved here 10 years ago. It was exciting.Our son and family had other plans this Easter weekend so Rex and are here and I am playing on the computer. We arrived at church this morning to see that the parking lot was empty. We were met by our preacher who said the electricity was off and so no service. We drove toward Madisonville with the intention of going to Mt. Tabor church and alas, they also had no electricity. We just went on to Madisonville and ate lunch at the Woodbine. It was delicious as always but I was disappointed that we didn't get to church service especially on this Easter Sunday.
