Special Visit with Aunt Joyce

I have been back to Charlotte to visit with my grandmother. She is 95 and time with her is precious. I stay with my Aunt Connie and Uncle Johnny (or the cuz Bets) while in Charlotte.
This visit I had a chance to visit with another Aunt. Joyce lives in Mooresville and is very talented. I have been wanting to visit with her for a while now. She and her children came and stayed a week with us. She is truly a remarkable lady. She is very talented when it comes to quilts. Take a look at this quilt she made my grandmother. http://fieldofchocolates.blogspot.com/2008/08/joyful-task.html

Enjoy the link above and check out some of her quilts and passions. She also gives out a website for free quilt patterns (Going Goofy would love this). Quilting is just one of her talents. She is very good at pottery. She had her own little private place set up in her house where she can work on her pottery and has her on kiln. She had a larger area set up with a cutting table and her two sewing machines for her sewing adventures. Oh! My scrapbook friends I was drooling for that cutting table what layouts I could do on it (I really don't think it would even fit in my little room). I always get motivated just talking to Joyce, but to see where she lives and works and all of her handwork was really a great treat. I will be visiting again if the invitation comes again.

Joyce is the type of lady that you would like to mentor your daughters in the way of keeping house...not just keeping house but making it a home. Thanks Joyce for wonderful day.

That sounds like a lovely visit. I would love to have an area that is really set up for my crafting adventures. I will continue to be content with my little section in the garage for my tables and paints and clays and kiln, but a girl can dream!

Beverly, honey, you don't have to EVER wait for an invite - you come on any ol' time! And thank you for the kind, kind words.
