Just back from Folk club, if one gets a chance there is nothing better than live music and theatre. Tonight we watched Barney Bentall, Tom Taylor and Shari Ulrich play. We laughted , cryed and just enjoyed the night. Met friends for dinner and drinks before the show. Then it was off to the show. The opening act was a Mary Flower what an amazing talent she can make a guitar sing. I hate to admit it but the canadian folk scene is not something I know alot about because well our artists in canada don't get the same exposer as the americans , am learning and my collection of CD's is growing . So there was my saturday night all wrapped up in a bow. The day was just as full, Rod made breakfast and then we where off in all different directions. Class for me - Learing how to do embroidery Love this class although I challenge the teacher. Today we where making 3-D flowers, Humming Birds, and Calalillies that where to go onto a easter egg wall hanging. Did the embroidery but let me tell you no silly easter egg will be going on my walls. Evil laugh coming your way. I added them to this really cool art panel I have been making for the last couple of months picture is here although I could have figured out how to turn it around for better viewing. At least I am learning how to post pictures it's a step in the right direction. Well that was a day in my life hope one was not bored reading this and all your comments are welcome. It's sunday now and off to bed I go. Have a great sunday do something fun and enjoy the day. D.D. ;)

The joys of blogging ahhh , today would like to figure out how to add pictures and slides so that I can start posting quilt designs and walk you through the process so that if something looks like fun a person might try there hand at making a simple quilt. Last night I was taking a class to make a disappearing nine patch. Really easy and I have made a couple of them in the past. I only took the class cause I have this fun kids pannel with the ABC's and I wanted to know how to get the placement of the letters right. Well I thought it would be fun to use my new camera and walk you through the process from start to finish. This will happen but maybe not today as well my brain is not working to it's fullest today. So I will do the quilt today take the pictures and post them tomorrow when I have the time to figure out this crazy mess I made for myself. Other than that the day is unfolding under a cloud of rain. I will load the dishes, and put in a load of laundry, then hit the day running. My friend Sandra spent the night and we had a wonderful breakfast and visit this morning before Jordan (my son) took her to the station so she could head to work and him to school. Then I will pull something out of the freezer for dinner cause Rodney will be home sometime today. And between all of that I will play with the kids, and try to finish my homework for class tomorrow. The day is just going to fly by! So my goal today is to have a clean house, dinner on the table before I head out to Class tonight. If this gets done it frees up the weeknd to enjoy with the family. I hate having to do housework on the weeknds . So what goals have you set for your self today. Lets here them and also if there is something you might like to learn we could do it together. Lets have some comments. hugs. D.D. ;)
