Welcome to my blog!

Okay...I've had this blog thing forever and a day, so I guess I'm going to break down and use the darn thing (another good excuse to put off house cleaning!). I've been a lurker on other people's...hope everyone enjoys mine as much as I enjoy yours.

Just a bit about me and mine. I've been married for 29 years (WOW, 30 years this November...who would have thought!) Must be love! My husband usually works out of state for a construction company. He's in Wyoming for the next three months...I miss him, but we've done this all our married life and have gotten used to it. But I'll admit that it's getting harder to be alone since the kids are gone.

Speaking of kids...I have two. My son is graduating from the University of North Alabama in May (magna cum laude, no less!) and has been accepted to the psychology graduate program at Auburn University (War Eagle!). He's so smart and we're very proud of him. My darling daughter is a freshman at the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) She's also smart, as well as georgeous! She is planning to go into pre-law (see...I told you she was smart!) I guess I need to explain the War Eagle and Roll Tide for those not from Alabama. Well...there's a big rivalry between the two universities and since I have children at both...I'm a "house divided".

I also have a dog (don't let him hear that though, 'cause he doesn't know it). He's a maltipoo named Chance and since everyone is gone now he's my buddy. We do a lot of crafting, but mostly quilting and sewing lately.

Yeah!!! I got the picture uploaded...I'm gooood!

Anyway...I've really just started quilting, so I'm not very good at it, but I'll try to post some pics of a few I've done and some I'm working on later.
So, this wasn't as hard as I thought, in fact, I'm having to make myself stop because it's getting so late. Thanks to all who are struggling through this.


  1. Wow Debbie- Chance is a cutie! I think your blog is off to a great start... I can't wait to hear more. (especially your quilting- I wanna see!!!)
    Thanks for stopping by my place... good luck in my drawing, and don't forget to come back soon!

  2. Awww...Chance and I really appreciate the comment, Paula. Thanks!

  3. Oh my gosh, your puppy is adorable! Wish he could come over and play with my Ozzie.
