I told little sister last Saturday--that I was going to take the first week in August off!!!
No sewing---just play around with "tweaking" the apartment--maybe read a book or two--sip Ice tea--nap whenever--maybe do some knitting-----
AND that was when she really "laughed" at me!!!!!!!
She said, " I knew you couldn't go a whole week without some kind of needles in your hands"!!!!!!!!!!!!
I did OK on Sunday--remember I went "shopping" all day--
but by Monday morning the "laugh" was on me---
I was back to working on bom's----
What can I say????????
I am confirmed "stitch alcoholic" ---no two ways about it!!!!
Yesterday was Anne's day--we only stitched a little while and then we went to Wal mart--I was still trying to decide on the office chair????? I got to sit in two models in the store---still did not know what to do?????
Did buy two nice nightgowns all cotton and got a deal on "undies"--12 pair of Fruit of Loom for $6.00 for the package--wow!!!!!
Later in the afternoon--girl friend Denise came--by then I had discovered that my wood green rocking chair would work at the computer table just fine--sooooo---
we loaded up the office chair and returned it to walmart!!!!!
Little sister decided it was her turn to do something with me--so first thing this morning we had to go over town---
and yes--we went to the Quilt shop--and this is what came home with me---
These two reds for using in the new School house mini doll quilt--
found these two in the Christmas isle and both were nearly gone-so got some--I mean if everybody else "likes" them--then I need to toooooo!!!!!!
actually they will go nicely with some of last years Christmas fabric stash!!!!
And it is hard to see here--but this has different colored dots and will go nicely with some of the fall fabrics I have already gotten!!!
We did stop and have lunch at the "Happy Days Cafe" today and played a couple games of gin rummy--(little sister won them all today--think she cheated!!!!)
AND--believe it or not--I got some finishes done today---
My three Jelly roll blocks are all done--
These were soooo easy this time--I really did "goof" alittle on the gift one color wise---but only you and I know that!!!!!
got this month's Sentimental Journey bom all done--these are so neat to do each month--
Have also gotten two other bom's prepped that have come in so far!!!
Picked this Magazine up at the Pharmacy while getting my Prescriptions filled--
I believe this is my first time buying this magazine---
I know some of you are "crazy" over the M.L. that started this magazine--
and I have met him---in fact out Quilt shop helped to launch some of his success in the quilt field---unfortunately--He is not a favorite of mine---so I would not buy the magazine---
but now he is no longer involved with it--and it is a good magazine and the language is more to my liking---
Look who was in this issue?????
Our Anne Sutton from Bunnyhill designs (Snowbound bom)
What a delight story and great pictures and only nice things said about our gal!!!
Our own Jaybird--Julie Herman had a nice informative interview in the back--too!!!
Way to go Quilter's Home!!!!
OK--think that has caught you all up--I failed to mention that when I go out of town shopping and to so many shops that I will be "out of it" for a few days??????
OH--we get to eat some "good" food again--went grocery shopping tonight--refrig and freezer are full once again--yes!!!!! (and yes--this time chocolate and ice cream came home with me!!!!!)
Oh yes--Di--has Kitty on the brain---
Tomorrow she is spending the day getting ready for her new housemate!!!!
