My Mom has been ill for about six months and she has spent the last couple months in a nursing facility. She was 83 and she went to Heaven yesterday. She will be missed by everyone in the family.
I will be making the trip to Louisville, Ky. for the memorial and funeral. It will be good to see family and friends there.
Blessings, Lee

Paul was Fab!

My daughter and I had a wonderful time at the Paul McCartney concert last night. It was great fun to get away together.

I had my digital camera with me and used it to record parts of the concert.....the film turned out great....good shots of Paul on the stage and on the screen. BUT, the sound didn't function....oh well. I am so "dumb" with the camera and anything tech related, it was a miracle I recorded anything. I was checking the shots and thinking how great it would be to show my husband, Bob, but when the concert was over and it was sound on my video. I have to say, though, Paul sure looks good for 68 years old! He had a vintage coat on and when he got warm he took it off and revealed a crisp white shirt and suspenders. He looked cute.

The songs he sang were just the ones I wanted to hear. But nothing from the Flaming Pie album.

Jennifer and Jennifer my daughter are different people. Jennifer who posts for me on the blog is a good friend and a very talented crafter. She has even designed her own patterns. It is fun to have a friend so creative....she is always encouraging me.....The Gardener's Journal was her suggestion.

By the way, I have finished the stitching part and continue to work on the piecing part. I keep digging into my stash for inspiration. My colorway has expanded.....I am having fun! My sewing room is a mess....little scraps here and bigger pieces everywhere.

Catch you later. Lee

Monday Monday

Sorry I haven't posted, but I have had a few technical problems? But, all is well and I can share everyday if I want.

My birthday was June 18th and my children gave me a ticket to a Paul McCartney concert in Charlotte. WE are spending the night and driving home on Thursday. I am so excited. Love that Paul! I know he is "old" but, I think he is the good kind of "old".
I am also looking forward to alone time with Jennifer. We cooked together this weekend and had great fun creating peach cobbler. It turned out to be part of one recipe and part of another and then we improvised. Improvising is almost always the best path to take....a little cinnamon, more brown sugar....extra peaches. Yum!
Let me think.....what is my favorite Beatles/Paul song? What is your favorite ? I love everything on the "Flaming Pie" album....especially "Calico Skies". Catch you later...Lee
