Today Seems Like a Saturday But It's FRIDAY!

I don't know what it is about today, but it's felt like Saturday all day. Patrick took the day off, and I got up early and went for a walk. After I got back Patrick was ready to go. We went to the casino in Yelm today. A good hour ride, but it was fun.

After that we headed to the grocery store to pick up some groceries. I can't believe how the prices have gone up. Oh, well. We got enough to make it a few more days. Decided I would make a pineapple upside down cake for Monday. Not sure if my Uncle and Aunt will be here then or later in the week.

Once I had gotten all the basting done, I was able to finally get started on the applique. I like to start close to the middle and work my way out. I was happy to see I could get this much done.

After we got home and just before supper, I decided to work on the applique some more. I realized I didn't have the basting done on the border by the wing. I was able to applique that part down. I was a little worried if I hadn't done it, that I'd forget and then mess it up. I'll work on the top wing. Then I'll go back to the head, and work my way out. There is a very good reason why I keep the pattern handy. I like to check with it before I keep going.

I have a couple games to play and then I'll get back to applique. I'm really liking this pattern. Didn't think I would, but I do love these quilts. I need to make one for my Aunt for all the Christmas stuff she's given me over the years.

Beautiful day and all is doing well. May we all be Happy Quilting!

A Good Day For Stitching

I woke up in pain. I couldn't believe how hard it was to get out of bed. I got going on the laundry and even started a puzzle. I tried...
