Seahawks Lost.....I Finished Another Project.....

Today started out lazily.I didn't want to get dressed till close to noon. I sat and played games.

Then I finally got moving and used the carpet cleaner on the dinning room. I spilled some cooking oil on the carpet some time back. It gets really dirty in a very short amount of time. So, Katt mentioned baking powder working to get oil out. I got the area wet, then put the baking powder over it. Patrick scrubbed it in the carpet. Then I cleaned it again with the cleaner. It seemed to work. Patrick even tried the Dawn soup to see if it would work. Between the two, it helped, but time will tell. Oil seems to collect dirt really easily. Hopefully we got most of the oil out of it, that we didn't get last time. I keep hoping each cleaning gets it cleaned out.

After that, I sat and played again.

Last night I had sewed the binding on the piece we are doing for teaching beginning applique.

 This is the class we will be teaching. I did the petals and pumpkins - which I showed when I did them. Mom added the other pieces. I would have done the leaves and stem in a different color, but that is the fun part about each quilter - everyone one does something different. I will take this to the shop and set up a date for teaching.


I finally got the binding done, and now can work on my projects. I think I will get started on putting another eagle on another block.

We had bowling tonight. Think we did the same thing Seahawks did, was ahead and got beat at the last frame. UGH Seahawks need to get it together. At this rate we won't be going anyway!

Just realized before we went bowling that I missed my appointment for my mamogram. I couldn't believe it! Usually they call and remind me, but they didn't. I didn't have it on my phone, and didn't pay attention to my calendar on the wall...so missed it. I'll call tomorrow and see if I can just go in. If I do I'll go to the folks and take a photo of dad's car. He's got a buyer I think.

I was looking forward to having tomorrow to myself, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Oh, well, I'm still going to be Happy Quilting!

A Very Quiet Wednesday

Today I was up early. I went to help Cherrill and stayed to help her a little more with ancestry. We both do genealogy and I was showing her...
