How are you today?
I went to work this morning fully intending to stay there all day. I probably didn't get there until 9:30. I worked for several hours doing this and that, and then Jerry arrived just before lunch. We left for a REAL MEAL at Gecko's. I had Fajitas without the flour thingys you wrap around them. I ate less than half of what was on my plate. I did not keep track of how many chips with salsa I ate before my meal came though. The scale will tell me in the morning, I'm sure!
While we were eating at Gecko's, I got a text message from Terry. She wanted to know if I was home and if the longarm was empty. I told Jerry we had to HURRY UP and finish eating because Terry had an emergency!
Then when we got back to the store, I told the girls I had an emergency at home and I had to leave right away. When I told them what it was, they just laughed.
Terry came over with ANOTHER QUILT FOR SOMEONE ELSE! It was a quickie she had made up to originally be a baby quilt, but she decided to put the pretty rose pantograph on it and take it to her 93-year old MawMaw to use for a lap quilt. I saw a picture of her MawMaw, and I would love to go visit her myself! She looks like the most PERFECT Granny ever! Terry says she is.
Here is Terry's MawMaw quilt:
While Terry was quilting with the longarm, I was doing NOTHING! We are leaving town tomorrow, so I didn't really have time to start anything. Terry stopped quilting long enough to show me a picture of the next quilt she wants to make -- OF COURSE -- for someone else. It reminded me of a pattern I thought I had. It wasn't terribly freezing in my attic, so I went out to look through the quilts I had put away in containers. I was shocked to find at least 12 quilts all ready to make.
I pulled out two.
The first one is crazy cats. I started to make this when my granddaughter, Lindy, was young and loved cats. I wanted her to help with it, but the event never happened. I pulled all the blocks out. I sewed in a few sashing pieces, and I put it down on the floor to see what it was supposed to look like.
The long sashing pieces are just LYING THERE, as is the border.
The sunflowers are appliqued on top of the background. It will be a lot prettier than in the picture. It is SO HARD to take a good photograph of a quilt.
Need to pack up the quilt and the Herbalife and the outfit I am wearing to a funeral on Wednesday.
Be back soon.
