Here I am...

Wow time seems to be flying by lately..and the hours of the day seem to be going by a lot quicker. I don't seem to get everything done I want to do which really is a bummer as my mind is going a million miles a hour..I really envy people with just one hobby. Oh well I will get done what I can...I have been doing some sewing and stitching and got some new goodies to show you all. So I will let the pictures do the talking.

What a Lovely Weekend,,,

Good Morning,, Wow what a beautiful weekend we had here in North Florida,,the weather was outstanding. Saturday our EGA chapter Duclay had a class on how to make a cube-it..and we had such a great turn out. It was alot of fun, but before the class we all meet at a cute little place called Honey B's for lunch. The atmospher was great as was the company and the food, it was funny while we were sitting there waiting to order and get our food we where talking and carring on,,as soon as our food came we all got so quite,,a couple of people mention it how funny it was that food had shut us up... Then after lunch it was over to the Orange Park Library for our class, but to our surprise the teachers which were Carol Presley,Carol Raley and our Teacher Linda Ferguson brought a trunk show of some of there finished products, and let me tell you the pictures don't do them justice,,and all of the pieces where sitting on finished samplers,,there was over 1 on 40ct,,everything there was just beautiful. We were all in awe over everything..Then we had to get down to business, and it was fun, we all had a good time. I now know how to make a proper cube-it. We also had a special appearence by Cathy who owns Inspired needle- I did finish mine that night at home, as you can see in the last set of pictures,,I had fun doing it and loved how it turned out,it will not be my last. Well I must get to the house chores as they are calling,,hope you enjoy the pictures have a blessed week. Devon
