Happy St Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I hope the luck of the Irish was with you today.
I am part Irish and I still forgot to wear green today. I was reminded by my 2 darling grand daughters. Pinches from a 2 1/2 and a 5 year old are fun when they realize that Grandma is not wearing green.

I am busy this week with a painting seminar. Once a year we paint beautiful items for our homes. This year it is a box designed from an antique box that sold for over $2,000.00. I will show you how it looks when we are finished. I showed you my project from last year, I changed the colors and the design to suit my house, but this year may be different.

Last week I was in Ivins, Utah near St. George, Utah. I went to a fitness resort and I really thought that I would not be able to walk or move after a 2 1/2 hour hike, and 2 more hours of working out. But I found that I back felt better and I could push myself father than I thought I could.

I needed a little Advil, bandages for my blisters and a change of shoes, and I was able to keep on moving.

I met some wonderful people from all over the country. All of the people there were friendly and supportive of each other.

It was a good week after all, even if I wanted to go home at the beginning of the week. Now I have to remember to eat right and exercise to feel better and to be able to keep up with the life I want to live.

Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Valentine Quilts

Hello again!
February has flown by, half way over and then March. My birthday is in March and it has all ways seemed that I had a long time until my birthday after the New Year.
I don't think about my birthday very much, and I don't think about my age unless my someone ask me. Luckily not too many people ask me how old I am.

One year I thought I was a year older than I was, until my sister told me she was not as old as I thought she was. Does that make sense?

February of course is the month of hearts. My mother's birthday was on Valentines Day so we celebrated Valentines Day a little different than the usual romantic way.

Since it is the month of hearts I am posting my heart quilt.

I am only 1 month behind. I love hearts anytime of the year.  See you soon, 
with love, Laurie
