Had a Good Day!

This morning I slept in. Patrick got tired of my snoring and went out on the couch. I offered but he told me to stay in bed. I woke about an hour later, and he was still asleep on the couch. So, Miss Kitty and I were quietly enjoying TLC time while he slept. She would move every time he rolled over. It was comical!

Then Patrick called Katt. We realized her Birthday is in 2 days and we both completely forgot! So, we all laughed about that. She's doing good. She was saying how she wants her quilt. So, I told her I would keep her up on what's going on with the quilt. We chatted for awhile, love hearing from her!

After chatting with Katt, I went downstairs and pulled her quilt out to see the size. I measured it after I got it set up for basting.

First I sewed a seam around the quilt. I'm told this works great for machine quilters. I'm hoping it will help with the basting as well.

Then I ironed it. I also worked on the back and trimmed the strands that float around. I worked on the back so there isn't a lot of fraying. I was surprised at how much there was. I couldn't get it all, but did the best I could. Then I measured it to 98" x 104" so it's a pretty good size.

I let Barb know I would be bringing it Thursday to have her baste it.

After I got the quilt ready, I decided to work on Nantucket Rose. I was able to get quiet a bit done today, but then again, I was also falling asleep or I could have had more done. I've really been having a hard time staying awake during the day. Not sure if it is the cold or if something else may be going on. I still have the cough and it's been a little over 2 weeks. I'm hoping it's just trying to get rid of the cold.

I'm getting excited about getting this done. It's getting close. I was teasing Katt that if I get it done on her Birthday, "does that mean techniquely, it's yours?" She said she wasn't worried about that part, she just wanted her quilt. She's hoping for it by, I guess that means I better get moving!

Life is good, today was a good day! I'm back on track.

We had bowling tonight. I bowled a 183, 179, 163. Not my best night, but it was a good one! Had 4 splits in the last game. We split the wins, 2 for us and 2 for them. We could have had three but our partner got ticked off and didn't try. Oh, well. At least Patrick got a 604 series.

Happy Quilting! and Happy Stitching!

Always Enjoy Being With Good Friends
