I've been to that truck stop a few times and it really is something.  Almost like a small town!

You know I thought about the same time I mean there's everything in there that you need or what I bought a pair of night socks there that when you take your shoes off in the evening you put your house slipper type things on they come all the way up to almost to my knees they are really warm I tried them on last night but that is quite a place if you ever get close to it go see it

I’m trying to catch up (again), I saw Patti’s post and giggled. I knew it wouldn’t take long for a retort. Lol

although Patti, I too have been adding more and more fabric into tubs and moving into the garage. I had no idea that much fit in my little closet. :0)

See it’s the same here. Can’t go to the campus, but all prices remain the same. I know they need to stay open, but the parents / students could use a break too.

Oh my, I hope you can turn the corner and start getting your energy back. I just told a friend the other day that medical workers are getting it and you all are using every protocol. 
im worried again!

Wow Shelley that is beautiful. So cool. I need to get my tops on hangers where I can see them. I might get renewed enthusiasm.

Holy cow Carolyn!  How is that happening? Do you have Osteoporosis?  My gosh no wonder your hurting. 
heal fast, and get cushions to sit on that take the pressure off your spine ((((( )))))

Oh wow, it’s beautiful, I had no idea it was all hand pieced! 20 years?

my grandmother flower garden is over 10 now so I can see it.

If you do, think about pinning a little paper label on them with the size.  if you're looking for a specific size ("I need to do a baby quitl!  Grandkid needs a twin size!"), having that information available without needing to unfold the top is a true convenience. 

It's easy enough to do before you put the top on the hanger but a real bugger to need to remove every top from the hanger just to see what size it is.  Ya know how I know it would be a convenience???  Cuz I had to unfold all the "big looking tops" to see if it was a queen size!

OK, everybody--I've been bad and off the Forum for forever, just popping in now and then to try to catch up; it's impossible.  Hoping that all those hurting are better and that things are either settling down or are at least more tolerable.

DH and I have been pretty much quarantined over the last months.  Did a little social distancing here and there but mostly entertaining ourselves with Hand & Foot, TV, cooking (and eating) and staying indoors.  Have done some some piecing, a block swap, and a BOM, but mostly just picking up, putting down, and rearranging.  Little to no motivation.  

We did decide to bite the bullet, mask up, and head for Utah.  We did Bryce, Zion and Cedar Breaks parks to celebrate Don's big Birthday.  Parks were pretty crowded but most folks were wearing masks there and in the restaurants and shops.  Great trip but always glad to come home.  Funny that while we've been home since February and constantly talk of "getting away," we were just as eager to return home.  And so it goes.  Today I'm attempting to make Leek Soup for the first time.  Missing everyone and keeping my fingers crossed that the Retreat can happen.  xoxo
