When I started my blog on August 12, 2008, I had no idea what a huge role it would play in my life. Over the years I've met so many amazing quilters and have made many true friends. I've had the pleasure of sharing my quilting journey with you all, and of sharing yours with you. I know I don't have many readers sewing time has been extremely limited the last few years so there hasn't been much reason for anyone to keep following along. But I have to say a huge thank you to those who have stuck with me until the end. And yes...this is the end. After 11 years I feel it's time to put my blog to rest. 

I want to thank every single one of you who has ever read a post and left a comment. It really has meant more to me than you'll ever know. I've just ordered a blog book of the last few years of my blog, and once it gets here, my blog will be deleted. Life definitely has seasons, and this one is over for me. I wish you all the best! :0)

A New Month

How is it possible that another month has come and gone. The days and weeks just fly by. They say time flies when you're having fun, but I have to tell you that for me it flies whether I'm having fun or not! lol And on the side of having fun, our local scenic railway had a steam engine from Ft. Wayne, Indiana visiting for two weekends. The first weekend Ava and I just went and watched from afar. But the second weekend on Sunday (it's last run for the year here) we ended up going for a ride. We really enjoyed it and can hardly wait for the steam engine to return next September.

I knew nothing about this steam engine before out little journey began. But I was intrigued by it and started doing some research. It was built right here in Ohio, in Lima and began operating in 1944. It continued until it was retired in 1958, having been replaced by the new diesel locomotives. Thankfully this engine was stored indoors after its retirement, and at one point because of its good condition, it was put on display. Several years later, a group of steam engine enthusiasts decided to restore it and give it a new life. It moved under its own power again for the first time in 1979, and as the saying goes, the rest is history. If you're interested in learning more about it, you can go HERE.
