Wow, that was fast … seemed like yesterday was Friday … yet here it is Monday morning and time for another weekend wrap-up.
In Friday’s mail, we received a Notice of Toll Violation for 3 violations at Plaza 29 - Touhy Ave. (Chicago?) on 10/20/11, 12/19/12 and 1/8/13 by a truck with license plates that we haven't renewed for almost 4 years now. My immediate reaction was just to send a check for the amount of the violation … I suspected that fighting that could end up costing as much (in phone calls, postage, time and aggravation) as the fine itself. Then I reminded myself that whoever’s running the toll booth is still doing it … there’s no guarantee that he/she won’t keep doing it. <sigh>
I still wasn’t anywhere close to 100% yet on Saturday, so I took it easy. I managed to finish the quilting on my Disappearing Four Patch wall quilt. That quiet day must have done the trick because I did feel a bit better when I woke up Sunday morning … hopefully I’ve turned the corner and am finally on the mend.
A good thing, too, because Sunday was a busy day. And it got off to a wonderful start … we got snow overnight! From the look of things, I’d say we got at least 2 1/2 inches.
After church, we went fabric shopping. The shop in the town about 20 minutes from here was having a Super Bowl sale – 20% off quilting cottons … perfect timing because I’m ready to start the quilt DD “commissioned” me to make for T#2’s bedroom makeover.
It’s going to be a fairly simple quilt … 6” blocks of the pink, blue, orange, green and yellow set with sashing from the striped fabric (which contains all 5 colors … to get a larger, better view just click on the picture). I need to check my quilting stencils to see if I have something for those blocks.
Before I could start working on T#2’s quilt, I had to finish up my wall quilt … I sewed down the binding while watching the Super Bowl – the commercials while DH watched the game. (Although I have to admit that while I’m not a football fan, the comeback by the Giants made for an exciting game.) By the time I washed and dried the wall quilt, it was too late to get a good photo … hopefully the sun will be shining tomorrow so I can get a good shot.
