Sad Day

Today Michael Jackson passed away. I am in utter disbelief and shock. He and I shared a birthday and I always enjoyed his music. As a kid I remember hanging out at Dolly's house and dancing to "ABC". The Jackson 5 were so talented and so much better than the Osmond brothers which was there counterparts back in the early 70's. I so liked his music. I loved dancing to his music and when my oldest child was a little girl we had all his albums and she had his posters on her wall. She liked Michael as well and she was so thrilled when I made her a white glove covered in sequins. The world has lost a great icon for pop music. Sigh........

June Jabber

I have been busy working on my BOM projects. I just love the anticipation each month waiting for the next installments to post. I don't know which is my favorite any more. Veranda view is so precious and Sophia Dress Up is so silly. I liked doing the wonky houses that Elefantz gave us. The colors were fun. Sorry to see that one end. I try to get as much done as I can with work and all. It seems the day off I get tends to be cleaning and such and by the time I am ready to sew the family is home. I need better time management.

Putting the journal quilt together has been quite the experience. I never was a journal keeper, but now I find it fascinating to go back and read what I have written. The positive side to journal keeping is you never loose your precious thoughts. I am now happy that I wrote a letter to each of my children write after they were born and sealed them in envelopes. They have never been opened. It will be fun one day to watch them open them and read about how I felt about them when they entered my life.

So back to stitching!
