JUST A GOOD STITCHING DAY!!!!

Plan A was to go to Ithaca, NY to a quilt shop---
But my "body" was a little "under" the weather--I guess---it just did not want to get going today--my world looked like it was "leaning" in one direction!!! And I did not know how to "fix" it and this guy was of NO help-----

SO-----

I went to Plan 'B'---
which was ---do what my "head" and body Will let me do---
And gratefully that was that I could do some stitching--


Did get some more hand quilting done on the State Fair quilt--I do try to quilt a couple blocks on this every day!!!

Then I got this Bom finished--
Fruits of the Spirit by Joy and Alice---


And I got the next Snowbound bom done--
Of course I do not sew the buttons on yet--just audition which ones I like then I do this--
And pin them to each block--but I "bet" you already knew "how" to do that??????


MAIL CALL--
I found a book on Amazon.com and ordered it--
And it came today---it cost me only $7 with the shipping which is $3.99--so was a great buy--I think!!!!!
I love that little cupboard on the cover that they have displayed some little quilts in--I will have to keep my  "eyes" out for one!!!!!


I also did some other work in the sewing room---I got the batting and backing ready for the School house Doll quilt--and I worked on the next row of the Round Robin quilt--I am changing it--and adding my own row here--this is the row where the basket row should go---I may still do the basket row--but that will be the next and last row more than likely---Leave to "Di" to want to change something??????

Oh I did go this afternoon to walmart--needed my 'CHOCOLATE' and yes--a couple other food items--did find two nice t-shirts for $3.00 each and somehow they made it home with me!!!!

I forgot today was the first day of Summer--I usually like to go get an ice cream on the first day of summer---sooooo---
So I will have to head to the kitchen and freezer and have another dish of this---
a some bunny has got to finish it up!!!!

Hugs, Di

  6. You did get a lot of sewing done today Di.That was my plan but everything went wrong.First a long phone with DD1, then the power went out for hours. When I did sit down and do some sewing I put it together wrong so had to unpick.The curtain fell down when I went to close it.So I gave up.
