Early morning rambles


No, these aren't my water lilies, but I thought it was a pretty picture.
I am awake early in the morning with a migraine and just felt the urge to post. This photo was stored on the computer, like the blue flowers in my profile.
Mom and Dad and Aunt Celeste returned from their trip to Maryland safely. They had a good time. It is great to have them back and also that schedules can return to normal. Terri and I doing the work of the 4 of us takes it's toll on our energy.
Back to the creative vein in the family, our 'matriarchal sister' Sue is an avid quilter. She has loved sewing since she was young and used to make a lot of her own clothes in high school, along with clothes for the rest of us too. She did some wonderful smocking when her son Bobby was young (he is married now...) and then ventured into more quilting. She has worked part time in a quilt shop while also teaching 3-year old pre-school. And has been teaching quilting classes for many years. One of her favorite pattern makers is Lazy Girl Designs which you can access by going to my younger sister Regina's blog www.TheQueenBeesBuzz.BlogSpot.com . Regina refers to Sue as 'Lazy Sister Sue'. (Please note the corrected address for Regina's blog - Thanks Sue!)
I guess that's all for right now. I may post again after I get a little more rest... not sure if I can sleep or not.

Hope your migraine is better. I hate when I can't sleep and usually find myself on the computer in the wee hours of the morning too.

Just a small correction.......although I started smocking when Bobby was young, most of my smocking was done for Karen. She had smocked clothes from the time she was a baby until she was about 8 years old. I still have some of those outfits stashed away for future generations!

Oops. Another correction. Regina's website is www.thequeenbeesbuzz.blogspot.com

Leaving out the word "the" takes you to someone else's blog and it's not nearly as interesting as Regina's or yours!
