 A Big "Thank You" to all my Friends at ECOT!

Here I am, enjoying my retirement, spending a sunny day on the porch, when the mail man brings a special surprise from my teacher friends at ECOT.  They sent a lovely card along with a gift card and encouraged me to use it for quilting - not that I need any encouraging with that!  Big smiles all day!  I really appreciate their thoughtfulness and generosity.

When I use this gift for a quilt, it will have to be diverse, colourful and designed to work well together; just like our English department.  I am going to miss working with my dear friends but hope they will stop by my blog to say hello.

Tomorrow is the Columbus Quilt Show and I'll be travelling down on a bus trip with my QBees.  Material Girl, a little quilt shop in Dover, Ohio sponsored the trip and I'm so looking forward to seeing all the quilts and visiting the vendors; looking for more retirement stash.  Of course, I'll be blogging about it.

Another Big Thank You to my Dear Friend, Jan.

As if I'm not already blessed with so many good things, Jan, my friend since high school, invited me over to go through her quilting "stash" since she is moving to Florida and wants to get rid of some stuff.  When I am there she insists I take her serger machine.  This is unexpected and again, deeply appreciated.   And I'm sure, with the help of my sister-in-law, Michelle, we will "serge."  Hopefully!  Isn't it cute?  

I think this quote from Oprah sums up how I feel today!


  1. Love hearing about the blessings that have come your way! Enjoy! I will look forward to hearing about your QBee bus trip and the show! Hugs!

  2. Oh Gladys! You have a Mary too, but her name is Jan! I cannot wait to see you tomorrow.
