Quiet Day....Enjoyable Day!


With the weather trying to decide if it's going to rain or let the sun shine through, I enjoyed the day at home. Funny how the older I get the more I like spending the day to myself. I did get a call from mom, saying she's going through more of her stuff, and chances are I'm going to be getting some of that stuff. Ugh, I think I have enough stuff at my house, and need to downsize not grow bigger.

I spend part of the day playing games, and doing laundry.

The other part of the day I enjoyed sitting here with Charlie, quilting.


I wanted to know how much I had done, so I put the quilt out on the floor and checked the quilting out.


You can see my feet lol - I didn't crop this, but should have. Anyway, this is what it was looking like. I'm really happy with the way it's turning out. I haven't had any problems with the basting so far, and thinking I'm more then willing to pay the $30 for basting on my next quilt.


This is an area where I have 6 blocks done. As you can see, I'm working on the one block. It's almost done, and with what I counted, I will have 12 blocks quilted, with 3 sashes done. Not bad.

I went downstairs and saw the mess. I'm not too thrilled having to figure out where all that stuff is going to go. I need to make a couple thread catchers for a friend but the room is so crowded right now, that I can get down there to do them. I'm hoping to do them this next week, as I'll be teaching the two groups how to make them. I made 4 the first time and gave 3 of them away. So, I need to make a few more. Chances are I will be giving them away as well. Oh, well.

Things are looking up and I'm still working on being Happy Quilting!

Spending The Day With Mom

It snowed more last night. Soooo, this morning was all white. It was gorgeous! Patrick said to wait till 10 am before going out. I decided...
