I have to tell you how excited I am to be able to spend today with my needle and thread. It’s been more than a couple of days since I had several hours to just sit and quilt. Not that I’m complaining since most of those days were spent at DD’s … and time with her and my Ts will always trump quilting! But … having said that, I am looking forward to a day of quilting today. I got the house tidied up (amazing how low my cleaning standards have fallen over the last 4-5 years … I’m ok as long as the house is tidy! ha!) and have some laundry going (when DH has to go fetch clean clothes out of the laundry basket, that tells me that it’s time to get caught up on folding laundry from who knows how long ago and perhaps start another load or two while I’m in there) … no excuse not to be able to quilt away!
I asked my sister, who makes/sells pillows on Etsy, to make a couple of pillows to go with the chevron quilt I’m making for her … quatrefoil is a favorite design of hers, so I found a couple of yards of it. The pillows were delivered yesterday … now I have even more incentive to get the quilt done! The one on the left shows the back, with the button opening … the one on the right shows the front.
As I mentioned, the last several days have been busy … spending the afternoons at DD’s. Friday T#2 begged me to join them for the closing program for VBS. She and T#4 sang … T#3 was too nervous to get up on the stage. Of course, I couldn’t say no. I took a few pictures, but when I zoom in with my iPhone, the pictures are so grainy … without zooming in, you can’t tell who’s who. Ugh! I wish I had had my camera with me! I MUST keep it in my purse!! I specifically got a small one so I could keep it handy. Grrrr
Yesterday, we went to visit my dad. I had hoped to get in a few stitches when we got home, but I was encountering email issues … and by the time I got off the phone with our ISP, the mood had passed.
So you can see why I’m overdue to spend some quality time with my needle and thread. As soon as I link up to Kathy’s slow stitching party I’m going to go grab my needle and thread and quilt, quilt, quilt!
Hope you all have a blessed Sunday!
