Now here are some beautiful cars from the l950 and 1960.

  I always dreamed of owning a Mustang and here I am
finally enjoying it in the front seat at the drivers wheel of a Red Mustang.

  A convertible. What a thrill to be in the drivers seat.
  Can't believe it took me 84 years to get here.
  This is the place to see all kinds of cars and enjoy them.

February is almost gone and I have  some
wonderful news.

My daughter bought me a new Singer Sewing Machine
when my Brother locked up and quit sewing.

I had to lean how to fill the bobbins and sew with it
and Pat my friend came over and we sewed a new ironing
board cover isn't it beautiful.

 Now I had sewed this runner for my son at my retreat
so I got busy and quilted it and  put the button eyes on.

That was a very hard to sew the button on so little
and 4 holes to bring the needle up from the back.

Now click on the pictures and see how nice it turned out.

We have a new president of the Tree City quilters
and  she gave us a envelope with instructions in to make a block
This is the Pennsyvannah  Block I  made from the instructions
We also traded a bag of scraps to work 15 minutes a day on I have not done yet.
Hope to get it done before the next meeting.

 I walked 376 miles and rode my exercise bike 3785 miles this last year.
I also lost 5 lbs and most of all how happy I am I lost 3/4 inch in my belly
and 1 inch in hips and 1/2 inch in ankles.The rest stayed the same. I have
been keeping records of my exercise since 1983 and my measurements
since 1997.

Poky Dot Material

A friend gave me  a layer cake of beautiful Poky Dot Material
I made wallets to keep  credit cards  in. 
Click on pictures to see how nice the dots look.

I also decided to make some tissue covers  to keep in  your purse.
Next I want to make some small zipper bags for make up.
These will make nice gifts for my friends.
