He Is Risen!!

We received a card from our daughter-in-law saying, "We are so thankful for you and the legacy of faith we have in our family. We praise God that we are a part of a family that rejoices in the blessed fact that "It is all good!" He has risen indeed!!"

Unfortunately, we aren't able to celebrate with our Florida family, however we are thinking of them and love them very much! The tradition will carry on to our next generation as we celebrate Our Risen Savior with other members of our family.

To all of you: He is Risen! He is Risen INDEED!

Happy Easter!

Sisters, Skyping, and Sewing!

Jodi and I have found a new way to "sew" together that is the most fun!

Jodi skyping with me!
We skype while sewing!  How fun is that?  It is almost like being together.  Many times we will skype and sew for hours.  It makes cleaning the sewing room, cutting out, chain piecing, etc., go so much quicker.  Sometimes when I am lucky, I even get to skype with Jodi and her adorable granddaughter, Maren.

So, what do you do to make those tedious times go faster?  We would love to hear all your ideas!

***A special note.....Jodi and I will be together at the lake starting next Tues.  We will be there for 10 whole days, just sewing and having an absolutely great time together.   Check back next week for MORE posts and a give-a-way!

We took the pledge..........But now we need another Pledge!

Jodi and I both took the Swapping Integrity Pledge!  We both believe that it is important to have integrity when making blocks for others in our bees.  But now I think we both need a pledge to do better in our blogging!!!  LOL!

Let's face it, we are both bad bloggers!  We love reading other blogs and we even talk about and share different ideas from other blogs.  But, for some reason, we don't get around to posting about ourselves.  Here are the facts as I see them:

1.  We love reading blogs.
2.  We aren't lazy, we would just rather sew than write in our blog.
3.  Neither one of us is really sure that what we have to say is very interesting to anyone other than each other.
4.  We don't lead "exciting" lives.  We are just average, normal women in our 50's who love our families, each other and quilting.

I haven't talked about this to Jodi yet, but here is my pledge to all you who really do want to read our blog:

I pledge to keep my part of our blog updated at least twice a month!  

I am hoping that Jodi will take this pledge, too, so that one of us is updating at least once a week. Will you join me in this, Jodi??

Help us to keep our blog going by leaving us a  comment with what you like about our blog or what you would like to know about us.  Would you like more pictures?  More information about our families, our childhood together, our adulthood, our quilting times together?   We both love to cook and have great recipes.  Would you like to see recipes on our blog?  We would appreciate any feedback that we get and we look forward to hearing great ideas from you!
