Magazines for Monday

I have the latest issue of Quilters Connection smack dab in the middle of the coffee table.     I love the cover this quarter.  Its something different and I may jut be giving it try in the not too distant future.

I was looking forward to this issue.  One of the articles was on Slave Lake and the way the quilting world rallied around a devasted community.  It was nice to see one paragraph that I recognized the people the writer was talking about.  No names were mentioned but I know the Grandma of two of the girls in the article and I've had the pleasure of meeting these two young ladies when I met one of the people that received one of my donations.

I delved futher into the issue and lo and behold, there is a feature on a lady I met on a quilting forum a few years back.  She lives in rural Ontario and we "talked" a time or two on the forum.  I no longer belong to that particular forum as I just don't have time for everything.  Darn it anyway.  She also writes a blog if you want to pop over here is the URL

I was going to put in 2 cents about another magazine I just purchased, but this post is going to get too long so I'll leave it until next Monday.

In the meantime, we had child labour at our house over the week-end.  Morgan came for a visit and I promised she could bake.  The promise was cookies, but when I mentioned lemon chiffon pie, she jumped at the chance.  Its one of her favourites.

When I told her it was time to clean up the kitchen, I said "wash or dry". She told me, "I'll peel the potatoes for supper."  I said "your on!!!"

We were having another of her favourites.  Stew!  I wish I had remembered to buy the crusty rolls to go with it.  Darn it anyway. 

Thank you all very, very much for your positive thoughts and your prayers.  The results are back and we are breathing a huge sigh of relief.  Kristina's tumor was benign.
