A Quilting Day....Finally!

Today was started as usual with a morning walk. After walking, came home and sat down with Charlie on my lap. We had a great day enjoying each others company. At least that lasted in the morning.


I finished this quilt top last night. I'm thrilled to have it done!


I spent the afternoon with basting the quilt and started quilting! I went and worked on picking stuff up around the house, to break up my sitting all day long. I did go through the TV "On Demand" to see what I haven't seen in awhile. I ended up watching three or four different "cop" shows while quilting. I must have watched 7 episodes in all.


Since I like to start in the middle and work my way out, I started on the wings. I let it "tell" me what it wanted. I was surprised at how quickly I could finger out what I wanted to do in that area. I tried to make this look a little more like double wings.


After doing the wings. I went for the head. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do for the head, so I quilted two lines across the head. After finishing it, it reminded me of Ninja Turtles. lol  Oh, well. It works.


I also did the cat tail. It's a little different, but it should work. Not sure if I will quilt the back ground. I'm thinking of doing cross hatching the border area. I haven't gotten there yet, so I will wait till I do. I am just now starting on the right wings of the bigger Dragonfly.

I enjoyed the peace and quiet today. I was surprised at how slow the day seems to be. Usually the day goes so fast, I can't seem to get anything done. Today, I was thrilled at what all I could get done.

I was making sure I got up and moved around because my back doesn't do good when I sit or stand all day. I won' be doing my exercises today, but I will be doing my bowling. Hopefully I'll do pretty good tonight.  I'm looking forward to getting better games then I had this weekend.

Katt will be here this weekend, and then gone again. I'm looking forward to seeing her again.

I did sign back up for Ancestory again, as I need to see if we can find a few family members outside the USA. I got the world discount they had. I do that for a few months at a time, then I drop membership till it goes down in price. This time I decided to get the world because I'm in need of checking Canada and Europe for family members. It gets harder when I'm in the 1600-1700's in the US. More stuff gets added and more information gets found.

Okay, time for bowling.....as long as I don't fall on my face! I'm still having fun quilting! I need to get some stuff done and now that the weather is getting cooler, I'm getting there. Happy Quilting!

Concert With Pam Tillis Today!

This morning we were up and ready to go to the casino. We spend a couple hours there, not doing good but not doing too bad. Then went to S...
