Jan's EBAY treasures

Tonight Jan came in all excited with her treasures she had ordered off Ebay. Darling fabric, endless possibilies... She is so excited and so were we! It is so fun to get together and sew on Wednesday nights. Some study Dianne or JeriLu was telling us about said that association with friends was better for you than dieting or exercise(do you think I got that right?) and we all agreed that we were right on top of that finding! I can't think of anything better than sewing with my friends.

Have I told you how spoiled I am? Yes I have, but I forgot to tell you about my friend Marlaine. For my birthday she sent me the Civil War block of the month. I am still in shock for such a treasure and love her to pieces for this amazing gift. Dianne's husband had seen it in a quilt store he and Dianne had gone in and wanted it done for him so he had bought it for Dianne to do. This is a great thing for Dianne and I to do this quilt together. I think 2 heads are better than one. This will be fun to do! I'm so excited that we are doing this together.

Jolene made a great table runner, Jerilu is working on a turkey wallhanging, Nan is doing a Christmas quilt, Marylou is finishing a throw and LaVee is making a skirt for her grandaughter. Can it get much better than that?

We sewed, had great treats, and looked at books, dreaming of the possibilities out there for us. What better way to spend a raining Wednesday evening. Hope yours was just as fun!


  1. you did get it right, And how healthy are we?
