We finally headed out to the train station. We stopped at the grocery store to pick up doughnuts and wet wipes. We headed to the station. I helped them with the luggage. We got in there, they took two suit cases, while mom and dad had two for themselves on the train. As we were getting them ready at the station, three of their friends showed up to wish them on their way. One was one of moms clients. I decided to let them sit with the folks and wish them well on their way.
I then returned their car to their house, and went to get my hair cut. It's been two years since I had a good hair cut, so decided to try out a new shop. I came out feeling good about my hair cut. Then I headed to the grocery store, and the last stop was gas. I couldn't believe it took me so long! I didn't get home till 11:30 am.
I sent out a message to our group about the potluck on Thursday, which brought me downstairs to get working on the block that needs to be done! Of course I had some help with that thought.
Harley needed to be with me all afternoon. Couldn't get her to settle down till I actually sat down to quilt. But then she wanted my thread, so that didn't help.
I needed to do 4 more points on my Dresden Plate.
I realized after I had them put together, I needed to do these 4 more.
I wasn't too thrilled to find out I had to get the fabric out and cut another piec out for this Dresden plate. It has taken me this long to do it, because I don't like sewing on the machine that much. I have other stuff to sew on the machine, so I really didn't need another one. Oh, well....I got the plate done, now I just need to applique it down.
I wanted to see if the center goes okay with what I picked. It turned out better than I thought it would.
Now all I need to do is applique it down. I think it works great, and the photo doesn't give it justice.
Last week I ordered 5 books from C&T Publishing. I got the first one in today - the more expensive one - all of $12. I love this book! I need to find the first one and get it as well. I love the patterns, and may do this quilt as well!! Oops, there I go again, another pattern and another quilt to do. I seriously need to finish what I'm working on before I start another one!! ...Keep telling myself that!
