Fiber Talk 5-8-19

~ Greetings and Warm Wishes to you my friends ~

I'm swinging here friends...being hung out to dry between trying to keep my "lifestyle" change and walking my *butt off* - pun intended - End of school year things...when you have academically oriented children you wait all year for the cheering from the stands and we  have been attending many cheering events recognizing our children and their successes. I've been working a little more than frequently at the quilt shop and I've had several funeral luncheons to cook and serve including another this weekend and all my "volunteers" once again have called off since it is: Mother's Day Weekend. Well I'm a mother too and we've got a funeral lunch to serve. Thank God he gave me two daughters to help me. We will be serving 100 and I'm cooking the entire meal (and cleaning it up too). May our fellow parishioner rest in peace and may some small comfort be brought to the family with this small act. 

I promise I'll be back soon with a FULL blog post on what has been going on with me and my stitching...because there is lots.

In the mean time....
Gary and I had a lively wonderful discussion about several topic matters...
including the Sassy Jacks Sampler Weekend with Nicola Parkman that I am missing out on. I really want to go, but I'm sort of over booked that weekend and logistically wise on paper, I could make it happen, but I'm afraid after it was all said and done my rump would be cooked.

So let me provide you the links to Fiber Talk - that twice weekly show where we talk about stabbing things with a needle :)
The podcast is also on FlossTube at:

And a BIG thank you to Sassy Jack’s Stitchery for supporting Fiber Talk by sponsoring the show!
Go on over to Sassy Jack’s - a full service stitch shop -

Until next time Folks when I have a proper update:
Hugs and love in stitches,
Vonna xxxx


  1. Oh Vonna, if I lived nearer I would come and help you out with the luncheon this weekend. Thinking of you!

  2. Ditto for me. There is a special jewel in your Heavenly crown
    for doing this Vonna dear, and the others don't realize the graces they are missing by excusing themselves from this great
    act of kindness.... Oh to be a fly on the wall attending anything
    Nicole Parkman.... Have a blessed day.

  3. Me too Vonna, I'd be grabbin' my trusty apron while scooting out the door, would help ya in a heartbeat my friend! Happy Mothers Day to you:)

  4. I can't imagine cooking for 100 people! You and your girls are so generous with your time to do this. I hope you will do something special on Mother's Day, Vonna as you are a very special mother!

  5. Vonna, you are so giving. Your church community is so lucky to have you. Happy Mother's Day 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹

  6. I would help also. I just went to a funeral luncheon in was sandwich trays, chips, tea, and desserts. Everyone appreciated it. I am truly sorry that the helpers were not thinking of how it feels to need comfort. Congratulations to your young men and women concerning school!

  7. You are amazing sweetie. Hopefully you get paid back for all the good you put into the world.
