Salem Stitcher and I headed out to Fraser's this morning to get supplies for my first rug hooking project. I bought a hook and some wool for my Bee Content pattern I selected a few months back. I am going to made the cat an orange tabby and may find out soon that I have selected a more complicated pattern than I can handle and scale it back some. Seems you have to learn to strip before you can be a hooker. So the next step is to take this hand dyed wool and cut it into small strips. This is on my bucket list to learn....but it may be years before I get it done (making an entire quilt seems less daunting right now than this project)

Last year he was still using a tee, now with the coach pitching he can actually make a pretty good hit. And look at this form and concentration as he got a turn on first base. OK so the ball did come his way and sailed right through his glove but they all had a lot of fun. They all get a chance to bat each inning and its more about learning the game right now than who wins or loses. I like that. I will have to get my softball glove out and have a catch with this little guy at the beach this summer.
Here is Go Postal and others serving ice cream at the Relay for Life event held last Friday night. Our team had several fund raising events including the raffle quilt that Miss Bee Havin made (you can see it in the background) We raised about $8,500.
Thanks to everyone that supported the raffle quilt by purchasing tickets. We raised over $1,000 with tickets sales. The winner was drawn....and her name is Vicky Grimes. She is a cancer survivor (and my Aunt).

May your bobbin always be full
May your sorrows be patched and your joys quilted
And my favorite...and Sam my sentiments to you!
In the crazy quilt of like...I'm glad you're in my block of friends
I will put these to use for years to come! Thanks Sam (And Thanks for being next year's Ski Club President...you will be great)

Heaven knows my fitness level has slipped over the last few years. But what scares me more is the loss of flexibility and how easily sore I get (especially in the back). OK I know I am not twenty anymore but I do think I can get things back in better shape. So now that I will have a little more flexibility in my schedule I have signed up for a three month membership at Golds. They are offering two to three different yoga/pilates classes each weekday....so No Excuses.
And I am going to get bike riding as soon as the weather dries up!!
