Good Morning!
As most of you know, my daughters (Stephanie, Nikki and Kayla) and I are participating in the Walk To End Alzheimer's. My mother has Alzheimer's as does a friend who has early onset. I'm holding an online fundraiser for this – my girls each plan something else – in order to raise money. I am selling some of my quilting books right now and will be selling fabric and other reading books later during October.
Right now, here is a listing of what I am selling...
Classic Table Runners by House of White Burches - like new
500 Full-Size Patchwork Patterns by Maggie Malone – used - good
Orion's Star by Eleanor Burns – like new
Christmas at Bear's Paw Ranch by Eleanor Burns – like new
Here is a picture of them...
All I ask is a generous :-) donation for our cause plus shipping. If you would like one of these or if you have a question, please email me at stargatefan 54 @ comcast .net - without the spaces :-)
 If you want to donate directly and pay me for the postage, go to...

It's been three years....

since I posted on my other blog. I'm still politically incorrect. But, here I am with another. Lucky you - you get to follow the trials and tribulations of a politically incorrect grandmother - late 50's - who loves what she does - takes care of the grand kids (3 total) - home schools the oldest grand child - quilts, cross stitches and pretty much causes mayhem and eye rolling where ever she goes. That's pretty much my intro and for those who don't know me, you will... :-) Since last my last blog... a lot has happened. Dh lost his job - 2x - when Cypress Gardens closed twice. I worked for Michael's for awhile. When my hours got cut, I went to work for Wal-mart for about 1 1/2 years...first as a people greeter then working in the sewing/fabric/craft section. In between all of that I developed Fibromyalgia and the start of arthritis in my knees and other places. Wal-mart "graciously" transferred me to stationary and home furnishings because there were ladies who couldn't do heavy lifting due to arthritis and Fibro. Yeah...I had it too but so what. ;-/ So, anyway, I was told had to get on my hands and knees and clean under the gondolas regularly. Also, at that time, Stephanie needed me to come north to help with her grand kids (long story) so I took leave which turned into leaving the company. Yea, I was devastated I had to leave - LOLOLOL! - oh...excuse me. So, I now care for the kids on a weekly basis. Dh is now working at Legoland Florida as Procurement Specialist. A fancy way of saying if you need it, you have to order it through him. He likes it. The grand kids like it too. So, that's me in a nutshell right now - everything is subject to change. I'll be posting a bit more frequently than before plus pics of the family...quilts, cross stitch...and just stuff in general. Hope you enjoy the journey.
