I was able to work at the sewing machine for half day!!!
This morning my friend Anne came and we both did some hand quilting--
she sewed on a binding on a baby quilt and I worked on hand quilting another row on the ABC quilt--
Then she drove me to Tops for some bread--
I love this one line of bread that comes in on Tuesdays-
( and so does Anne!!!)
I always get 3 loaves--the other kind is whole wheat--
You have to put these right in the refrigerator or freezer when you get home--
as they have NO preservatives in them--
Look here at the ingredients--
See only just what is needed to make fresh baked bread--
and no work or clean up!!!!
Then after Miss Gracie and I had lunch and she went for her nap--
I went to the sewing machine to work on a "work in progress"--
remember this "project" is to use up scraps from a honey bun roll I had--
wellll---this one I think has more work in it that the first project I did--
I thought "scrap" quilts where suppose to be 'quick n easy'--just to use them up!!!!
I also have a little problem here--
Now I can fill this row in--
but then I will have 8 rows at the top and only 7 at bottom--
so what's the "big" deal you say--just take off the two side pieces!!
I could==but it will be lots of work--as I will also have to 'restitch' the end of each row afterwards--as I sewed these rows going in the long direction!!!
See what happens when one is just doing something from the "top of the head" instead of using a pattern!!!
Here is another little look at what I am doing with this--
Yep--here is that center square that I have embroidered something on!!!
I have also decided pretty much how I am going to finish this one--
but I can't tell--
you will have to stay tuned in for that?????
Oh--and on a real "funny" note here--
Remember this from yesterday??
and the one of the reason's I had decided to do this one was to maybe use up a jelly roll I had--wrong--
It would need a honey bun--uses only 1 1/2 inch wide strips--
and I am not cutting down a jelly roll at 2 1/2--so--
you do know what this means don't you????
I get to go shopping next week and find me a honey bun!!!!!!!
PS and Miss Gracie and I have all our friends and the folks in NZ in our hearts and prayers--
