Terry's Quilt and The Shoe Shine Kit Video

Yes, Terry finished her friend's quilt today.  She was VERY happy when she rolled to the other end and sewed her last row of swirls and points into it.

She chose a difficult pantograph, and she sewed it PERFECTLY!

And doesn't she have the PRETTIEST hair!!!

Terry is a very fast learner.  I told her she could sure quilt my next quilt.  She took that as it was intended -- as a high compliment -- because she knows I am VERY picky.

I asked her to hang the quilt up real fast so I could take some pics.  She wanted pics too, so we hung it up.

This is the BACK.  We both loved the pantograph with the print on the back, and the gray thread Terry chose was perfect for it too.

And I totally forgot to show you The Shoe Shine Kit video.

I made it several days ago.

It has a VERY IMPORTANT message if you can stand my jabbering until I get to it.

And GUESS WHAT???????????????

The MOST EXCITING thing has happened.

My new video camera records in a different format than my little pink Sony Cyber-shot.

Every time I uploaded something from the Sony, an error message would come up saying "You are NOT allowed to upload that KIND of video.  The video Police will come and haul you off straight to prison!  Do you want to continue?"

I would always say, "Yes."

When I uploaded this new video of the Shoe Shine Kit, that error message did not come up.  AND, instead of it taking 8 to 10 hours to upload, it only took ONE HOUR!  I was so excited!  That is still way longer than the internet in my other house, but it is way faster than what it used to be here.  I am a happy camper!

Terry and I joined our husbands for lunch in town today.  Then Terry and I went to our store so I could show her the four quilts I have hanging there.  It didn't turn out at all like I thought it would.  I had to rush to the lady's room, and by the time I got back, Terry had shown herself to all the quilts.  Oh, well.  

Gotta go for now.  Have a MARVELOUS weekend, my friends!

Hugs, Joy

  2. Love the quilt. Wish I had that talent.

  3. Oh my word, I just watched the video. Reminds me when I threw a whole shoebox full of baseball cards in the garbage many years ago and I still cry about it. So glad Jerry found it. I'm still trying to get to the embroidery machine. Thanks for showig the grey blouse.

  4. Henceforth, a Goodwill bin will be placed on my front yard for you and Jerry to put in your "disposables". I will be happy to go through and find valuables to return to you (at a price you understand). If you forget a jewelry box full of beautiful gems in a closet and a gold necklace in a shoe shine box?????, both you and Jerry need help! I am happy to volunteer! Your friend Terry is beautiful and talented; I am anxious to meet her. Remember to tell her that I have no talents except talking and eating! Love you and miss you! Margaret

    1. LOL, Margaret! Fortunately, Terry really likes to TALK and EAT -- just like me. We hung out all afternoon today. She is going to be out of town for two weeks, so maybe I'll get my house half-way clean. MISS YOU! Wish we didn't live so far apart, although I seem to keep friends a lot longer if I don't ever get to see them. )-:
      Hugs, Joy
