Monday, February 29, 2016      5 comments

Got to drive home from quilt class in the snow. We are expecting 3 to 5" by morning. I have my doubts but we will see. I was going to take mom her tulip tomorrow. But not if we get as much snow as they think we are. Here is my t... Read more
Day 563 Finished one......
Sunday, February 28, 2016      6 comments

This is my very first quilt kit. The instructions assumed you know what you are doing. Well guess what I don't. I did make some interesting artistic changes because I either read it wrong or cut wrong. But I think it came out quite nice and... Read more

So today I continued to work on that list. First thing I need to finish is the mini quilt for mom's door. So today I put it together and got it all ready to quilt tomorrow. Including getting the applique attached. I really am not sure I know... Read more

OH I did not want to get up and go out to get my hair done. But I did. I need that human contact. But maybe I'm a bit over stimulated this week. Monday night quilt class, Block of the Month club, stopping at mom and dads and then my hair app... Read more

But I'm so excited to make my new quilt squares. My mom also wants to change her place mats because she thinks the green doesn't match her blue gray carpet. Ok I'll fix her some new ones. I did manage to crochet the temperature row but ... Read more

Wednesday, February 24, 2016      0 comments

Today I did several things my mom has been asking me to do. I shortened her new jeans, I tried to remove some old stains from 2 of her sweatshirts and I baked her favorite brownies with brown sugar frosting. I did still manage to crochet... Read more

Tuesday, February 23, 2016      5 comments

I slept late because the dog thought we had invaders about 3 am so he needed to bark for half an hour. There was a cat in the back yard. I went up to sew. My brain had seen a youtube video that wanted to become a baby quilt. I had bee... Read more
Day 557 All was just fine.
Monday, February 22, 2016      2 comments

I worked myself up into a frenzy for nothing. It was fine. It was even fun to be in a room full of people all enjoying the same thing and no one cared if you were doing it right or wrong. Just as long as you were doing. Thank you all f... Read more
Day 557 1/2 The "What if's" have set in.
Monday, February 22, 2016      2 comments

The sewing machine and all the things on the list I'm supposed to bring to quilting class are in the car and all of a sudden I don't know if I can do this. My what if list is irrational. what if I don't really know what I'm doing what... Read more
Day 556 Looking forward to this week....
Sunday, February 21, 2016      4 comments

Today was a tough one. It is starting to get really hard to take both mom and dad somewhere at the same time. And my dad is always ready to go home in about an hour. So when you drive 80 miles to get somewhere I'm not always ready to head hom... Read more

Day 554 The crabby is gone but the blustery weather brought pain.
Friday, February 19, 2016      4 comments

Didn't have a great night mostly because the dog thought there was something outside that really needed his attention. I think it was just something blowing in our strong winds but he did spend an hour barking at the door. But the crabby... Read more
Day 553 I'm down right crabby today.
Thursday, February 18, 2016      5 comments

Most everything is annoying me. The cats who claw at my legs to get attention, the dog that wants to go out every hour or so and then expects a treat. And those dingy brothers. One is upset because mom and dad won't be home on a day "they": p... Read more
Day 552 This one was a long day.....
Wednesday, February 17, 2016      2 comments

My doctors appt. was at 9 am. I am usually awake by then but not moving much yet. As I get older it seems to take me longer and longer to get it in gear in the morning. I was up and out of here by 8:15. Good reports from the doctor. I... Read more

The sun was nice and bright today. Finally not everything looked white outside. I loved my quilting class last night. It was eye opening to say the least. Today I had to work on how to use my ruler when I was using the rotary cutter. ... Read more
