I Need to Hide!

Today started out with cribbage. After cribbage I walked down to see my walking partner. Ruth looks great. We chatted for over an hour and a half. By the time I got home (11:00), the morning was gone. I had lunch and sat with Charlie for a little bit before heading downstairs to work on the quilt top.

I was moving along pretty good. The top was getting together and then I realized I put one side on wrong! Rip, rip, rip. I was able to get the first part of the quilt top put together.

Wanted to see how it would look on the bed.

This is one side of the bed.

The other side view. I'm really liking how it's coming out. This was on the phone camera, which I hate using anymore.

I was on a roll!! Then 3:30 pm hits and I have to get moving on getting a salad done for supper. I told Art I would be there at 4 pm to fix supper. He bought the steaks and I cooked them. It turned out pretty good. We played 3 more games of cribbage. Then he asked me if I could come over the next two days. At first it was "maybe" then I remembered Patrick telling me to tell everyone "NO," and shut off my phone. I won't do that, but I did finally say no. I told him I couldn't because I haven't finished this quilt and I was expecting to be done by now. Told him I'd see him on Monday. As much as I like to play cribbage, I am not his daughter. He keeps telling me I am, but I'm not. I just wish his family would come around more often. He's lost his wife only 4 months ago, and they don't seem to come around much. I hate being the one that has to check on him. Casino is Tuesday with him after his eye appointment (which I'm taking him to). Patrick's getting tired of me going to the casino with him, so I'm going to have to tell him every other month, and I know he's not going to be happy about that since he can't drive the freeway. 

Okay, enough of that. I found a wonderful box with my name  it in the mail! It's a Birthday gift, I'm sure. I want to open it, but since I'm not having a "true" Birthday since everyone is busy or gone. I'm going to wait till my Birthday and then celebrate by myself. lol  Mom and dad gave me some flowers for Mother's Day and my Birthday. 

They are awesome!

Tonight, after exercises, I'm hoping to be in the mood to go back downstairs and work on the rest of the quilt top. I would really like to get back to the black and white quilt. 

Even though I'm trying to hide from some people, I am not hiding from my kids. I haven't heard from them, but I'm not hiding from them either.

I walked down the street and back. Charlie was there waiting one me!

I'm linking another quilt blog to check out! I've been enjoying her quilts. They aren't applique, but they are cute scraps. Quilt Fun. Enjoy!

I need to work on a few more projects, and if all goes well, I'll have two done by this weekend or by the time Patrick gets home. At least I'm hoping!! Even though my neighbors seem to want to keep me busy because Patrick is gone, I'm still Happy Quilting!!

BE Meeting And Cross Stitching

This morning was our BFF (BE meeting) day. I was all ready to go. Called Cherry to see if she was going. She was waiting on the guys that do...
