    It's Wednesday already



    Hello Folksies!
    It's another wonderful day in my world. Still trying to find my shine, since I had to rise. However, I expect today to be as fabulous as yesterday, which was rather awesome for me.

    I was able to get some cutesy little ornaments done - super simple, I finished up a quilt top for my granddaughter Nora, and I actually got it sandwiched and started sewing on it last night. I also finished up the binding on a few circle of comfort quilts - cleaned the bathrooms, swept the floors, played with the dogs, tried to figure out some computer stuff, got a nice fire started in the woodstove and all of that was before hubby got home. Why is it that I can solve the problems of the world while he is at work? hahaha, I am always happy when he comes home - love my Luscious hugs and the sound of his voice - some of my friends say his voice sounds sort of like Barry White, never thought of that; just know I love to hear him call me "Baby". There I go, following my thoughts from one to the other again, like a puppy chasing it's tail. What I meant to say before I started thinking of my sweet man too much, was that it is difficult for me to accomplish much while he is around. There is no reason really; he doesn't stop me, I just can't seem to get it all together? If he is outside working in the yard, I can do a wee bit better but if he's in the house, I may as well just hang that notion up.

    Off to get my self together. I like to get my "me" time in before 8 a.m. That's when the grand dogs come. I learned yesterday to not leave them unattended too long in their play area. You see, when LL was putting up the lights, he had to have some electrical drop cords and one is in their area. Yep, it got chewed in half. I haven't told Luscious yet. I mean, cats are the only animals with nine lives, right?

    Re: It's Wednesday already

    Blondie, I know exactly what you mean about getting lots done when dh is not around...I love him dearly, but I somehow forget everything I'm doing because we have so much to talk about...you wouldn't think so after being together for 54 years, but it's true...
    so I like my alone time when he is off hunting....he has been such a help to me now that my hip is acting up...
    wow, you got a lot done last evening....you go girl!!!
    It's always so much fun to hear about what everyone is doing on the forum..
    Hugs and Blessings to all....

      Re: It's Wednesday already

      Good morning Blondie and Carol. I get more done without hubby around too. He was away most of the day yesterday and I got a wall hanging/table topper done and the Christmas card would not have liked. LOL!! The wall hanging was not much better. Thank God that no one can see the seams in the that baby. I will finish up the binding on those today and take pictures when done.

      My granddaughter has left me with a cold again. I don't know why she does that. Someone told me that was because I was close enough to cuddle. I have to agree.

      I have a few things to do in town this morning. I need to take my big roast pan to the church today. They use it for the Christmas pudding. Their big Christmas dinner is tomorrow night.

      That is what my day is shaping up to be. I hope your day is awesome.
      Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

        Good morning! Well I should be able to get all sorts of stuff done when I'm home because DH leaves the house by 5 am and doesn't come back in until after 8 pm! If he's in the house for very long during the day, he's either napping or sick. It's staff meeting day today. My new supervisor seems to l-o-v-e meetings. I think she has meetings to plan meetings to talk about meetings.

        Happy Wednesday/Hump Day!

          Good Morning,

          DH is back to work today after his week off for hunting. He got some much needed R&R, but no deer so far. He hunts on our property after he gets home from work.

          I got involved in working with our pictures in the computer yesterday and somehow we had tons of duplicates so I did lots of deleting and organizing. It was time well spent as far as I'm concerned.

          I love the Daily Deal...a nice blender with another project I want to do. Until the end of the year I'm concentrating on finishing up UFO's..I'm really backed up. I won't be able to have anything quilted until after the new year....my LAQer is backed up until then! If I was 20 years younger I would buy a machine and start a home quilting business. Even in this area those businesses seem to thrive. Quilts are treasured around here!

          Our weather is definitely winter now...it's 26 this morning. No sign of snow so far this year. normally we get the first snow around Thanksgiving and occasionally before Halloween.

          I wish everyone a great Wednesday. With DH going back to work today it feels like monday to me!

          Hugs, Barb

            Good morning! DH just left for work and the house is quiet. That is, until the humming of the sewing machine starts! Like Barb, I have some UFO's I want to (or should say should) finish up.

            Love the cartoon today, Blondie! How do you manage to find such great ones so often???

            Hope you feel better with your cold, Monique.

            Yuck to meetings, Myrna!

            Have a wonderful day to all you special folks.

              Surprise, surprise, surprise!! I'm here and it ain't ev'n 7 am in my neck of the woods. Amazing. Now that I am up and about I realize that there ain't ev'n anything moving through my brain, so I'll just say hello and try to focus once the java kicks in.

              Days being taken up with DGD projects - life goes on. Fun, fun, fun!!

                Morning all. I just want to say I disagree with this whole getting up and going to work thing.....
                I was productive the last few days, now I have to go back to the place and do the thing again... ugh!
                But...I do feel like I am on the right to do list to be finished by Christmas at least!
                Have a great day!

                  Re: It's Wednesday already

                  Cold morning here and it must be damp outdoors because my knees are aching. Had a nice small quilt/book group meeting last night where we all talked about how we did with Hurricane Sandy (no heavy or physical damages), our month's read (about a lighthouse keeper in Australia), our next project (lighthouses of NJ blocks) and our December Pot Luck dinner meeting with a Christmas gift exchange. Wow, that's a lot for 8 women to discuss and make decisions about in 2 1/2 hours. It was a very productive and enjoyable meeting as our hostess had a cozy wood fire burning in her quilt decorated living room where we began our meeting and then we moved into the dining room with it's table so nicely set and loads of her famous Irish Soda bread and butter to enjoy with our tea. Hostess of the month's meeting chooses our next book, her choice was a light and funny one - any of Janet Evanovich's Plum novels.

                  DH will be hanging around the house most of the day but I can't use that as an excuse any longer, I must straighten up the downstairs rooms this morning. I still have a stack of linens on the dining room table from the weekend and the floors all need attention. We'll be away this weekend and next week our son Tim and kids will be here for Thanksgiving and the weekend so I better get my hiney in gear. Picked up my 'free' turkey from the supermarket yesterday and need to double check my shopping list so that I have all that's needed for Thanksgiving dinner. Son Tim will be making his corn casserole with help from his son Ben who likes to cook. Almost forgot to all to the list fresh pressed cider from a local farm martket, they use mostly red delicious apples and it's delicious.

                    Trish, you so remind me of the little boy after his first day of school. His Mother asked him "What did you learn today?" The little boy thought for a moment and told her, "Evidently not much, I have to go back tomorrow."

                      Re: It's Wednesday already

                      Hello folks! I got up early to put out the trash, and found that kitty had made a mess by his litter box. I think he puts his front end in, and leaves the back end out and then lets it rip. What a puddle!

                      Cleaned off my countertops for the upcoming Thanksgiving bash. I installed a nice long countertop a while back and it works great for family dinners as our buffet server space, BUT it can't have junk mail, layer cakes and charm packs from Sarah, receipts, printouts from the computer, etc, etc, etc, if it is to serve that function. Got the stuff sorted at least, now to find a home for it, or the trash can!

                      Tried to load my "torn" fabric on my long arm frame yesterday, it was a wonky as a dogs hind leg, no matter how much the sales lady insisted that tearing it was the only way to get it straight. it is at least 5" longer on one end than it is on the other, that just doesn't work well on a quilt frame! I'll have to take it off and square it with a t-square and rotary cutter, or else just return it to the store. What a mess. I am going to try to mount it from selvage to selvage and see if that works, or else I'll have to cut it or return it. Guess my goal of getting it quilted by the weekend is not going to happen.

                      Work today, then I have an appointment to get my car serviced. It has umpteen recalls on it, they are going to fix two. One thing Toyota learned is not to ignore problems when they get wind of them after that throttle sticking debacle a couple of years ago. Now, they agree to fix every little thing on every car that might be affected, hence the boatload of recalls. These are for little things, I wouldn't bother having them fixed if I had to pay for them. I have three Toyotas, so we are getting recall notices a lot! Now, don't think I have Jay Leno's garage, my daughter drives one of them.

                      Hope you all have a nice day! Get some sewing done if you can fit it in, always is good for the soul!

                        Re: It's Wednesday already

                        wacky wednesday.jpg at least it feels wacky to me. I got up at 1:30am with the dogs and then had trouble getting back to sleep. TarButt decided it was time to get up a little bit ago so here I am. I have an awful sinus headache too.

                        Did not get any sewing done yesterday. We had to go to town and by the time we got back home it was time to put away groceries and get dinner. Then I watched The Voice and zonked out. I do have a bit on my plate planned today. I am going to try and get my SSS box put together today. I bought the wrapping paper yesterday. I wish I had more to put in it, but my funds are always pretty low at this time of year. I do plan on making things all through the year from now on and that way I will be able to pick and chose things for next years SSS. I also need to press out some major wrinkles in my Black & White quilt so I can get the FMQ finished on it. I had it folded and stored in a plastic comforter bag and the cats decided it was a nice bed when they were in the house and laid on top of the bag and made major wrinkles. But I won't be able to jump in and start anything until the sleeping giant wakes up. Don't want to make any noise and disturb his beauty sleep.

                        Have a great day.
                        Hugs and prayers to all.

                            Good morning, all. Sounds like a great Wednesday for most of everyone. I've got a load of clothes in the washer waiting for me to take out to the line to dry. Then I'm going to get busy on one of the (seems like) dozen quilts I have pin-basted and waiting for FMQing. Not to mention the three tops that are ready for sandwiching! Why oh why do I wait until I have so many before I quilt???? Meeting Hubs at the VA for his appointment later today. I need to go with him so that I can 'nudge' him to tell the doctor everything and/or ask her everything.
                            Well, this isn't getting the laundry on the line, so I'd best get off here.

                              Good morning ladies, I have not posted much the summer as I have been working on quilts for our local veterans. It has been a labor of love and a test of endurance. There are six of us making the quilts so we have been very busy.

                              Blondie like you when my DH is around I don't get much done. I find I would rather send time with him and since he is now retired we are together all the time. He is great at helping me with my sewing projects and the fact that he used to have a sewing machine sales and service business helps as he keeps my machines in top notch order.

                              I am looking forward to Saturday and Missouri Star's birthday bash. Sure hope I get to meet some of you.
