Here is my blouse, unwashed and not pressed well. What is with me and LEAF patterns these days? Of course, black and white is one of my favorites too. This turned out real cute, I think. Jerry was home sick all day with a chest cold. He's been sick for about a week now, but I just found about it a couple days ago. Jerry never says when he is sick, so I don't know until he is coughing all over me! I will be sleeping in the guest room tonight. I had him call the Skin Hospital this morning and tell them he had a cold, and sure enough, he had to reschedule. The last thing I would want if I already felt bad is to have to have surgery.
I have been thinking a lot lately about putting my Route 66 quilt top on the longarm and getting it quilted. Then I can show you something different for awhile. I spent two years making that quilt top, but realized it is really huge, and I'm not sure I have a wall tall enough anywhere to hang it on. I still have to add the outside borders, and I need to tweak them to make the quilt a bit smaller. Let me see if I can find a pic of it here for you... Yeh, this shows 5 rows -- each row representating one of the States on Route 66, including Oklahoma. There are 8 States in all (I think). I digitized a lot of the blocks in this quilt. It has hundreds of hours of work in it. I really would like to finish it.
Guess I will go watch TV with Jerry. I have a new Threads Magazine and a new Vogue Magazine, and I really want to read them. Jerry likes to watch TV in the dark, so that is out for now. Plus, I am playing about six games of Scrabble with Laurie and that keeps me busy until 11 or 12 PM each night. She says she plays with 10 to 12 people! YIKES! I couldn't do that much, but I do love word games. I have to save time for sewing, you know!
Good night my friends.
