Is there life after Thanksgiving?  Yes, but there is also the diet that I need to go on for sure this time.  I ate way too much, how about you?

I started a new quilt today that I am really excited about.  It is a kit that my sister finished and sent me from Keepsake Quilting. I am using

"Thread by Design" by YLI, my own line of thread. It is a black quilt with neon green and orange, right up my alley. The thread really shows up perfectly. It somehow always surprises me how the quilts turn out so well. I just get an idea and then start quilting and then stand back and I am almost always very pleased with it. I think just getting started is the hard part. We are all worried that whatever we have decided to do on the quilt may not be the perfect design, when we just need to quilt something because there are a million "perfect" designs. This one is turning out nicely. We will film it for one of the episodes of Linda's Longarm Quilting.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. I want you all to know I am sincerely grateful to all my friends who have taken classes from me, who read my blog, follow me on facebook, take the time to comment and for those of you who have joined thequiltingschool.com

If I have been able to help or inspire you in any way along your quilting path, I am deeply honored and feel incredibly blessed.  Over the years I have laughed and cried with many of you through the trials of life and that has made all the difference in my life, and in my family's lives as well. These are the best of times and we will get through the worst of times with faith in the Lord.

This year I have most of my family here for Thanksgiving and we have invited several friends as well. I hope you all have wonderful family and friends surrounding you. Cherish these moments. I like to take a minute to step out of myself and look at the scene as if I wasn't there. It brings incredible appreciation for each moment I live. Change is the only thing that is constant in our lives and from one moment to another will never be the same.

I also feel incredibly grateful to live in this country, and for those who have served this country so valiantly. I have several members of my family who  died for my freedom before I was born and I like taking time to think of them and remind my grandchildren of their sacrifice. I'm thankful that I have been chosen to clap and cheer and count my blessings.

May you all be healthy and happy!

Nasty cold and cough

I caught a nasty cold and cough. My daughter, Tiffany, has been giving me breathing treatments or I wouldn't even be able to breathe! I keep debating whether I should call a doctor. Isn't it funny that we take care of everyone else, but don't do the same for ourselves? What's up with that? I know exactly when someone in my household should go to the doctor, but I always debate when it's me. Anyway, I felt a little better today until tonight. It always gets worse at night. I will take it easy this weekend. It snowed all day today. Again.

Snow

   I'm already tired of the snow. I'm thinking how long it will be before I see green again.  We have about 5 inches here on the hill where I live and the roads are already hard to get up the hill.  The school bus won't stop at our driveway anymore so we have to take the kids a little ways further to meet the bus.  It just can't stop on the hill. I don't blame him. Last year I saw the bus off in the ditch twice on our road.

   We got  ready to go to Jackson Hole to get Carla Scott last night from the airport. I called the airport just to make sure her flight was on time and they said there was no such flight.  I checked her itinerary and it said March 4-6, 2012.  Then I remembered that her father was ill and she had to reschedule for spring.  I wonder how many other things I have forgotten? But if I can't remember them, then I won't know if I've forgotten them?  Actually, it turned out fine because my house was clean and it was snowing, so I just snuggled down with a book tape and had a wonderful Sunday evening.

  I am so excited; tomorrow we pick up Carla Scott from the Jackson Hole Airport. She is coming to tape 4 segments with me on Linda's Longarm Quilting.  She always has the most colorful and interesting quilts.  If you haven't seen her quilts, you will really be surprised by her techniques.  I will try to get some behind the scenes shots on my blog.

   It snowed all day. We are getting the storm that is hitting the West right now.  My grandkids played outside in it most of the day. I wonder how long it will take for the newness of snow it to wear off?  Of course, they are from Texas and rarely see it. They get all dressed up in unbelieveable garb - they can hardly move.  It is really cute.  Winter is here to stay for us. The last snow didn't melt. That's a tale-tale sign.
