Joan's Musings

It has been awhile since I posted, so far a busy month. JD had two crowns put on. I spent the last few days in Denver with two granddaughters. It was a fun few days, a 6 year old Kaleigh, and 8 1/2 year old Kamryn. RMCQ put on a studio tour this month, I was only able to get to three of them. I did help as a greeter at Jo's home, it was a fun experience. I did get my "Delta Dawn" CD and application form off to AQS-Desmoines. I got back into some knitting while in Denver, making little toy fish and mice for the girls, good experience to get me back into the groove of it. I dyed a bolt of fabric today, hopefully it will become curtains in the dining living room, not sure the color will be right.

Alliance for American Quilts

Joan's Musings:

I forgot to mention that I did finish the Crazy Quilt block for the Alliance ebay sale. I was pleased with it, and I will get a picture posted. The deadline was 6/1, and I did get it off on the 29th. Each member will have one vote, and there are supply prizes for the winners.

I took my quilts "Delta Dawn" and "Colorado Sunset" to Louisville on the 28Th to Kenneth Sanville, 356 Centennial Dr., Louisville, CO 80027, phone 303 666 7475, to be photographed. He will be mailing them back to me via Fed Ex, along with a CD.

June Already!

Joan's Musings I can't believe it is June already. I spent a few days in Casper, my granddaughter's graduation was wonderful and I really enjoyed spending time with her, Jessica and Sally. We had a wonderful barbecue on Sunday the 24th in the park, there were three classmates that went together. We had around one hundred people coming and going. The weather was good after a cloud burst and wind that lasted a few minutes, just long enough to get Jack wet while he was tending the grill. Graduation was at 3:00 on Monday.

Melissa has blossomed, she has lost about 30 lbs, has a new boyfriend, and looks so healthy. She was a quite disappointed about losing their first soccer game in the state playoff.

She will be in Denver today and tomorrow to go through the tests that will indicate how the new liver is doing. I am sure they will be positive because she looks so healthy.

We did receive the faucet we ordered for our new sink and countertop installation. The guys from Don's Cabinets will be here tomorrow to install. Mat will be coming on Thursday to repair the warp in the kitchen floor.

JD is planning on leaving on Friday to go to Seattle for his granddaughters 3rd birthday.

He is going to go to the lab to have a test for blood sugar, he is concerned about the numbers indicating diabetis, his Internist was concerned about this, as the numbers were slightly high after his stroke.

Tammy's birthday tomorrow 48 years.
