Strong Drink and Chocolate


Today one of the ladies at work jokingly stated that my alter-personality, “Sasha”, came to work today.   I didn’t think I was misbehaving that badly but I did assure her I would ply “Sasha” with strong drink and chocolate tonight.

So, I’m on my third tall glass of Pepsi on the rocks, and the chocolate fudge brownie is already gone!


The Logan County PieceMaker’s Quilt guild meeting was tonight.   There is awesome talent in the guild.  Check out the show-n-tell we had tonight.

First this small quilt was presented.  It went into our love quilt collection.  
I like the Americana colors!

 Then there was this cute media bag.  Check out the organization on this bag! 🙂


 Check out this floral wall hanging.  How cool!

When this one was shown, I exclaimed SUWEET!!

It looks like a lot of tiny kaleidoscope pictures.

There was also a quilt shown that the guild has helped make in commemoration of three generations of Smith Doctors.    One is still with us and I bet he will be blessed when this is presented.  So I can’t show it until after the presentation.

 We also showed off the 2011 Butterfly Quilt that will be given away at the Butterfly Festival this year.

Look at those beautiful colors!
Check out the quilting!  It was done by Lovelace Quilting.


 Then during the meeting thunder started rolling and one of the ladies got up and went out to look. 

We have been under storm and tornado watches today.   
Well, she came back in and said it was looking golden outside, so I ran out and took a pic of the golden clouds.     

This is a pic of one of the cool things God allows us to see.
The golden colored clouds tonight inspired my posting the following verse. 
When He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.  Job 23:10
Testing… yes I have felt that of late.   I must remember, that I will not be put through more than I can handle and when the test is done, I will come forth as gold.
Have a great Wednesday!!
God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
