New Machine - Yikes!

Yesterday, AJ took me across the bridge to purchase this dream machine. I am the luckiest quilter in the world. AJ really racked up the points on this one. He even went back to the shop to get me the special patchwork foot.

I cannot wait to get home from work and use it.

Love you AJ

Watermen's Convention

This was the best day - January 24th.

AJ and I got up early and had breakfast at Jimmy's. Off to Rehoboth Beach for the outlets. I had to return some items to VF and do a little shopping. Next, we stopped in at Sea Needles in Bethany Beach. It is a yarn shop that sells different needlework. The lady inside gave me a pattern for slipper socks on size 5 dp needles. She was so helpful. After this sock purchase, I dropped off AJ at the Waterman's Convention in Ocean City. I drove back up to Fenwick Island and visited the yarn shop there. I bought size 2 16" circular needles and a "crab" cross stitch kit.

I brought my camera out when I hit the boardwalk at OC. The Salty Yarn shop did not have much yarn, but beautiful, beautiful needlework kits! I managed to purchase another crab crossstitch.

After the convention, AJ very kindly took me to Lewes to another yarn shop where I bought bulk sock yarn and some camo sock yarn made in Germany. AJ wanted to stop at tackle and bait shop which eventually we found. I went inside and started to look at the merchandise. Do you believe this! They sold salon products - Scruples - what a find.

After a quick grocery shopping at the WalMart in Seaford (where I found February's free quilt pattern), we went back to Jimmy's for a crab cake dinner.

Is this the perfect day or what!!!

Anne Marie's Birthday

So sorry - I am behind posting.

January 30th was Anne Marie's birthday. Here is a picture of Thomas and Amers - or should I say Thomas and Doctor Aden. It was match day. You shared the good news with your son. How extra special is that. I am so very proud!!
Here is a quote from Robert Frost just for you, Anne Marie:
"Time and Tide wait for no man, but time always stands still for a woman of thirty."
Has it really been that long. It seems like a blink of an eye.
I love you,
