Home again

Whew, been real, been fun, but it is always good to get back to your own bed. Had a great time in Atlanta. Didn't take near as many pictures as I usually do. Had a wonderful week of classes, saw old friends, met new ones, laughed much and slept little. What more could you ask for?

I have said it before and will say it many more times, women need women. And it is wonderful when they have a built in vehicle to spend time together. We too often don't place enough importance on the value of just spending time together sharing life and laughter.

I was able to stitch a bit last night. Came home feeling kind of crummy so didn't have the oompa to get everything put away and spend time at my sewing machine. It is on the plan today. I have a couple of pictures to post.

This was in a class taught by Lezette Thomason of Children's Corner patterns. It was to illustrate the reasoning behind making a too small collar fit a neckline with the simple alteration of trimming 1/16" of an inch off the collar. Now I am math challenged so I will have to take her word for it. When you put the pi symbol in anything, my brain shuts down and leaves the building. She originally showed it as two circles inside one another, I was with her. She then wrote that formula on the board and I was a goner. My brain ran in fear that she would write x=? next.

Sometimes you can be so intent on getting the stitch right, that you stitch your name tag to your linen. Sorry Mum, too good a picture not to share.

Jane and Debbie. Two new friends who were enjoying their first SAGA convention. Hope you had a great time girls. Will be back later with more pictures.


  1. Don't they look great! Pi. Seems like someone has demonstrated that before. Perhaps someone who has taken her class in the past? Hummm...

    Fun fun week!

  2. Sounds like a great week, Martha - I hope to go one year! :) That Pi served on Sunday morning would have given me a headache...I like pumpkin pie...with a touch of whipped cream, please...;)

  3. I really enjoyed meeting you and the other gals at convention. Since I already "knew" you from the smocking board, all I had to do was put a face to a name and stories that I had read. Looking forward to more conventions and more fellowships with all the ladies. Thank you for making my first convention a great one with your friendship.
