What a Day!

Today I was up and ready to go. I had this day for Art. We went to the Red Wing casino. I even did a game for Patrick and brought him home some money. I didn't make money but had a good time. Art won as usual. He's one of the luckiest people I know - other than my two grandmothers. Me, I did okay.

Came home around 3 in the afternoon. Patrick took the afternoon off as well. So, we got caught up on "The Biggest Loser." I do like watching that show.

While I was watching that I was working on my cross stitch.

Between last night and today, I finished the butterfly then worked on the border. I'm now working on the grasshopper. I like the way it's coming. I did notice that the "roll" area is a little dirty. But then when it's sat for a good 6 months, that would make it dirty. I had it in the plastic "case" but that didn't seem to help much. I do like the way it's coming along. At this rate I may have it done for the finish-a-long.

I'm heading over to Rose's tomorrow. I have to take my sewing machine (ugh) as she has something she wants to work on. I cut some fabric 12" x 12" for whatever it is we will be doing. It will be interesting to see what she has. She tends to have an idea for us to work on something and then by the time 4 hours have gone by, we haven't finished one thing. She said she's made some and that it doesn't take long and I'll like them. We'll see how it goes. I'll post whatever it is that we will be doing.

Thursday is TAS meeting day. I'm not sure if I'll go. I hate weeks like this that keep me busy three or more days a week. I LOVE my time to myself. I do need the time with others though. I actually had a good time today. I was playing games on my own. Funny how I did enjoy being by myself. I was in a good mood, so that helped too. Art does his thing and we meet up for lunch. After the keno tournament we come home.

If I can figure out how to "link up" for those of you that follow me, I'll put it out there. I haven't figured out how others have the linking working. I need to do some reading to figure it out. When I do, I'd love to have others link up to my blog.

I want to get working on the binding of the QOV quilt. I did find the corner that the quilter said she had to fix. I can't figure out what I did. I thought I had my corners perfect or close to it. She said I was 3" off. Not sure what she meant. There is still basting stitches there. I will try and applique it down so it doesn't come apart. I'll do that while I'm stitching the binding on.

Again, here I go! Thinking of things I NEED to do and not thinking of what I'm doing. If I keep working on one thing, it will get done. If I keep thinking of other things....who knows....I'm back to being like Donna's dog = "Squirrel!" and off I go being side tracked. That still keeps me Happy Quilting!

I Made Myself Keep Busy

Not that I planned to do that, but I did make myself keep busy getting things done. Not like I really need to keep busy, but I do need to ge...
