WHAT DO YOU DO WHILE YOU'RE QUILTING OR SEWING?


WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT WHEN QUILTING OR SEWING?


A few weeks ago at my Thursday Sassy Sewers meeting we all had this same discussion about what we do or think about when we're home alone quilting or sewing?  I thought the topic would be a good one to share with you and get your feedback.  It will be fun to share your comments with my fellow Sassy Sewers.


Gmama Jane with Sassy Sewers quilting on a quilt showcasing Patches from Fire Dept.s all over the country and even a few foreign countries.

As for me, I HAVE to have background noise whether its the TV, radio, or even nature.  I love to open my windows in my sewing room and listen to my birds, squirrels, chickens, Jeffrey the Rooster, etc.....

I like the radio with political talk shows and genealogy some of my favorite.  Contemporary jazz, R&B Classics, 60's music (because it takes me back to good memories of Jr. High/High School), Bluegrass like Alison Kraus/Ricky Skaggs, and Praise and Worship.  That is one eclectic group of music choices, is it not?  Sort of like my Quilting???

I do have a TV and prefer to watch tutorials with my favorite being Missouri Star Quilt Company!!!  Going there is on my Bucket List?  How about you?  I fulfilled one of my Bucket List destinations on Monday!!!!!!  Every Quilter should go there to be amazed, challenged, and awestruck as I was.

I will share with you in my next post where I went?  I bet most of you can guess.  Want to try to guess where I went?  Go on....give it a shot!

SEW...leave me some comments.  What do you do while quilting or doing any type of needlework?  Do you snack or have a cuppa near by?  What do you listen to or do you prefer to listen to nothing?

  AND........

WHERE DO YOU THINK I WENT THIS PAST WEEK THAT MIGHT BE ON EVERY QUILTER'S BUCKET LIST?

GRANDMAMA IS BACK.. EMPTY NEST PART 2 NEW STORIES, NEW QUILT PROJECTS, GRANDPEEPS, ETC...

GMAMA JANE IS BACK
MARCH 27, 2016


Easter Sunday Morning
HE IS RISEN...HE IS RISEN INDEED


What a perfect time for starting fresh...in Life and in Blogging.  Since last October, I have been helping Mr. Tractor take care of his mother who suffered with Dementia and declining health.  At age 93, March 14, 2016 my sweet mother-in-law passed away surrounded by those of us who loved her and had cared for her.  She passed away as graciously as she lived her life.

Anyone who has ever been a caregiver knows what I mean when I say care-giving takes over your life.  In our case, we both cared for my mother for 11 yrs and then Mr. Tractor's (Roger) mother for 2-5 yrs.  We have actually been caregivers for over 20 yrs total.

Lately, I am even more aware just how short life truly is and want to live each day with purpose, love, and gratitude.  Therefore, my next phase...Empty Nest Part II as I am naming it ... will be lived, told, laughed/cried about and then written down as a way to leave a written legacy for my family.  Does that make sense?

I'm not sure who my readership will include, if anyone, but I promise to leave a little of myself in each post so that my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will KNOW who their Mother or Grandmother was as a person.  Since I've experienced loss of family and close friends in the last 6 months, I am only reminded of the brevity of life and the importance of making the most of each day.

Today, on this rainy Easter Sunday, I'm going to leave pictures of a few quilts and quilty projects in progress that I have put needle and thread to either by hand or machine.












BLESSINGS
Hope you will come back often and visit.  
Leave me a note so I will know I still have some blog reading friends out there.
