That was today's story---
decided to "catch up" on the jelly roll blocks---
and it is a good thing that I have learned how to "laugh" at myself--
and that I have a handy dandy seam ripper---cause I needed to "use" both of them today--ALOT---
This block and 'I' did not see "eye to eye" today---course IF "Di" had taken the time to really read the instructions--she would not have had as "big" as problem--you really would of loved to have been a "fly" on the wall and watched me put this block together--in fact now that I think about it--It might have made a good show for "I love Lucy"!!!! I will not go into detail and bore you all--but I know that for every seam I sewed on this block--I "ripped" it out 3 times----I finally did have to recut 2 of the strips cause the points I had done in the wrong direction and had cut them--BUT--look I did get it done and it looks "fair"!!!!
This one went together in the 1/4 of the time ---
and this one--
This block was almost toooo easy!!!!
And here is the two blocks in the smaller size--
So now I am up do date with these---I think we just have two more blocks to go too!!!
This was to be a half day job---welllllllll????????
It was alittle stormy here--or should I say it "threaten" to storm all evening--but we got nothing!!!
Went with a girl friend to her Church yesterday to help set up for their Vacation Bible school for next week--unfortunately--Little sister and I could not stay inside the little add on building--and every job they had had to do was with painting --and that is too "smelly chemicals" for us--so we had to go outside --- I was sitting on the steps--crying and embarrassed--when Little sister said --we could pull weeds--we looked around and there was lots of weeds in a built in flower box right beside me and in the cement walk way--so we did---and then we asked for a broom and we swept the long walk ways --it looked soooo different and we felt better--even if we where not able to help where the help was needed--we did help!!!
Then my girl friend took us to the Library--here is my stack---
Actually it is a small one compared to what I used to get--Little sister got twice as many as me!!!
OK--more of the packages--for Monday--
got this order from "equilter" on there 50% off holiday prints---These two bird/church panels are like the blue ones I got last year--and I found a fall/halloween one I had been looking for --even last year and couldn't find!!!
And from Joann's I got this doll miniature book on sale and some thread for the machine and all was on sale and I got another 10% off total--was a really good savings on things I needed!!!!!
Now here is a surprise for you all today---
I found this picture and decided to download it for you--
Unfortunately cause I have it out--it is fading some--but I thought it was time you met all three of us girls---you know that is Little sister in the middle and on the right is Middle sister and her baby--Miss Teddy--so that leaves---the
--lady girl on the left as---
Now what is her name---you know the "silly girl" who can't take the time to read directions???????? ( this is a few years old--but other than all of us being alittle "grayer-haired--we still look like this pretty much!!!!!)
Hope you enjoyed the Surprise!!!!!
