UDC Blog

The Farmville Chapter 45 UDC now has a blog all its own. Please come over and have a look. There has been a lot of things happening and we are always glad to have new friends drop by.

Little Boys

Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year. When my son was home we would decorate our big ole house with ghostie goblins and have such fun with the few neighborhood kids who where brave enough to approach the house. Sadly I have no Halloween pictures of the house, but here is a picture nonetheless.

Anything happy reminds me of my son. Here I have included a small wall hanging that I made years ago when he was just a small baby. The shirt was his first gift after being born and it was from his cousin. I grew up with the little sayings that, "Little girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice and Little boys are made of snakes and snails and puppy dog tails."

Hello everyone. I hope Christmas was a safe and enjoyable one for all. January here has been snowy and cold. I love winter. Today we awoke to an ice covered ground making it necessary to close the schools and delay many businesses. I plan to quilt, quilt, quilt today. The quilt presently in my frame is my son's quilt began 22 years ago while on bed rest before my son was born. I was confined for one month so everything was done from my bed, in my lap and by hand. I completed the top after he was born and it has only taken me 22 years to begin to actually begin quilting it. I will have it finished in the next few months and place it in my son's cedar chest of baby goodies.  You can see my quilting bee which is always helping to hold threads, needles, etc. at every quilting. My husband makes the quilt frames for sale, if anyone wishes to inquire about a purchase, please e-mail me at It is 9:30 am so gotta say goodbye and head for the frame. With God's Love and Grace, have a wonderful day.
