Now today was a "bit" better---
Can see where my time went and
I can see some results---so happy day!!!!

got two more blocks done on the Short Story--
I think that leaves 36 to do!!!
someone asked how long it took to do each block??
the hand quilting takes about 20 minutes for each block--ouch!!!!

Then I was in the sewing room after a short meeting downstairs--
and was sewing on the last two rows of the round robin quilt--
when Little sister came and she "bribed" me to go to Walmart--
by offering to buy my lunch at McDonald's--
so off we went--
I got--
3--new sleeveless t-shirts for $3.00 each and I had picked one up the other day!!!
Am working on next summer's wardrobe at these prices!!!!
We had lunch--chicken nuggets and walked back home--
Then I hand sewed the hem down on the back of the last two rows on the round robin quilt--then went in and made the binding and sewed it on---
Ain't this "cool"--it is all done--can't believe I have another TOTAL finish for this year---
I did "cheat" alittle and sewed the binding on by machine with a decorative stitch instead of the hand hemming stitch---
and here is the back of it---remember I did this as a "quilt as you go" project also!!!
the last two rows top and bottom are of my own design--also!!!

Mail call----
Oh my goodness----looky what I got in the mail today---
a package all the way from Anne-Lise in Norway---
got a pretty card and two pieces of fabric and two knitting counters she said--
the only "sad" part was -- it was meant for me and for Cameo--
This was sent as a random act of kindness---and to me though --
it was a random act of love--Thank you sooooo very much Anne-Lise--
I am sorry that Cameo is not here to enjoy it too!!

Ok I need to get back to doing some sewing---
there is always some project calling my name!!!!

Hugs and best wishes for a great Friday for all of you---
OUCH--did I say "Friday"--is it really Friday again tomorrow????
I do believe we really need to take time each and every single day to say
"I love you" to somebody--and don't forget those hugs and to smile!!!

Ok Di--just say good night and be done with it!!!
Hugs, Di
