I have new projects!!! Our good friend, Sheryl Bovi-Pickard is manager of the Tehachapi Depot Railroad Museum’s gift shop. She and I have been talking about some ideas for sewn items to sell in the gift shop. Beyond what I had on hand for fabrics, yesterday Sheryl came over and she and I brainstormed ideas. The previous volunteer who sewed items for the gift shop had moved away so Sheryl hasn’t had anyone to sew until she thought of me and how I liked to sew and quilt. She brought over all of the fabrics shown on my ironing board, among which was this really cool children’s quilt that is finished except for binding!! Oh this is going to be such fun.

I only have two more blocks to quilt on my pink and green 3-rail fence quilt and then I have the binding to add, so when that’s done I can move on to things for the Depot. I love it! I told Sheryl that after the current quilt was finished I would be forced to take up one of my ugly projects to get it finished. It’s a ‘mystery quilt’ (not intentionally, but it’s turned out to be that) and I’m not 100% sold on it. I’ll finish it eventually, but will most likely donate it or give it away. It’ll be pretty, but not my cup of tea, if you will.

It’s so very nice to be needed, and to be able to give to others. I am blessed…

Be safe, be well, and please be happy! Be sure to tell those you love that you love them. Enjoy your weekend…



About tehachap

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons and two grandsons. My hobbies include reading, writing, sewing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in G scale), and travel. My husband and I are retired and we spend our winters in Arizona. I used to own a secretarial and desktop publishing business, but closed it when my husband retired in 1999. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.
