    Default Friday - I can spell!


    Good Morning Lovely Ladies!

    Yes, when I saw how I mis spelled Thursday, oh well, I haven't figured out yet how to edit a title on this group. I reckon I type with an accent. LOL.

    It is raining here. Thank you Lord. As much as I am not looking forward to getting out the umbrella, I will be thankful to NOT here about how much we need rain. Yesterday afternoon when I came home it was rain with some sleet in it. This is just pure old fashioned rain.
    My granny used to say that each month borrows from the past and future. Like right now in February, it is borrowing some of the cold of January and some of the wind from March. And so on. Isn't it funny how we can remember things like this but can't remember where we put our keys or reading glasses?

    Last night I started hand sewing on one of the quilts for the sisters - I did a dresden fan - a bit larger than a lap, smaller than a traditional. Just enough for them to sit under. I did a signature block for the bottom right hand corner:

    I am thinking of hand quilting the muslin with multicolor threads. What do you think? I have certainly learned a LOT about piecing shirts. A totally different experience when using them to be sure. They also had in there some older fabric and dresses from their Mom that is OLD. I thought it would be dry rotted but they are just fine.

    Have a good day, dear ones.


    Sewing mends the soul.

    Friday - my kind of day since tomorrow is the day I do whatever I want, whenever I want. Looks like I'll be checking the windshields on the vehicles to see if there are any cracks from downed limbs. The winds are to get up there today.

    Russell sounds like a hoot. It's probably a good thing he hightailed it out of there with all those beautiful ladies checking him out.

    Today is the day DH calls to see about his 'investigation'. If there is still no news, I told him to phone the Intermediate Unit who hired him to see what his rights are. This is still riducleous.

    Odie has pre-paperwork for his hernia surgery on Monday. Still doesn't know when the actual surgery is. He was angry last night at the thought of another 5 weeks there and not being able to start with his classes yesterday. He said he plans on reading alot of books while waiting. Here is a kid who struggled with reading until he hit the 9th grade. Then it just hit him and he's been reading ever since. One Christmas he asked for a book as a gift and he said 'but mom, it's a really thick one and it just came out so it will probably cost about $25.' So, I told him I didn't care how much it cost, he was ASKING for a book and it would be his. He's been reading everything he can get his hands on ever since.

    Rain here too - guess I should grab the umbrella. Hugs,

    Hum Friday!! Have chili, buns and mexican dip to make today for a birthday party tonight. Another day where I don't think there will be much quilting done.

    There are two auction sales this weekend, don't know which one we will attend.

    The snow that is coming will by-pass us again. That's ok with me.

    Blondie, love your block and different colored thread sounds lovely.

    Happy quilting everyone

    Stay safe and stay warm and in some cases stay DRY!!

    Friday, Friday, Friday!! Just another day of the week here. I'm glad that Blondie can spell Friday - wish I could send her a 'man Friday' to take care of all the little tidbit things that keep her from her passions. I know that LL is just one of her passions though, so don't want to keep her from that. Her Dresden is fantastic - but don't tell her I like it. I've been sneaking peeks at her blog and she's got more going on than an old wet hen trying to lay an egg under the watchful eye of a fox. Don't know where that came from - must be because I had to make my own coffee this morning.

    Have an appointment this morning to get my stupid hand looked at. It's been giving me fits for several weeks now. We have about 6 inches of snow on the driveway and DH just drove down the length of it to make sure we can get out - snow plow hasn't been here yet. DH insists on driving me - which is great. Maybe I can get him to spring for breakfast out, too.

    Have the binding ALMOST finished on my daughter's quilt. Just as I was finishing up last night I noticed that I had to undo a piece of the machine sewn binding where I started because it didn't catch all the underlying fabric. RATS!! But that won't take long. When I have that done, and the corners (my nemesis) done I'll take a photo and show off the label I put on it.

    Looking for good health, wealth, happiness, warmth, and sunshine for all my MSQC friends!!!

    Hugs!

    Never so glad to see a Friday as I am today!

    Blondie - I had to smile about Russell and I am sure that all the lovely ladie's attention might have scared him but I am sure it also puts alittle pep in his step! Your quilt is going to be so beautiful with all that color and I think the multi color thread would fit right in! Hope you stay warm and dry today.

    Trish - Poor Odie with his surgery! Are they allowed to have a Kindle? I love to read but never thought I would want one because it's not a "book" but I do love it!

    Monique - An auction sounds like a fun! Haven't been to one in years but the last one I went to I bid on a box heaped full of old lace curtains and misc. stuff. Ended up being someone's really old sewing basket things. I ended up selling the lace curtains at a yard sale for lots more than I paid for the whole box of treasures!

    Sandy - Can I get a "man Friday" too? I really just want to sew this weekend. Hope you get a good report on the hand. Can't wait to see the pic of your finished quilt!

    Jan - you are so sweet, always watching out and giving us support when we need it. Thank you so much!

    Sewsoft - I've been thinking of you lately and hope you are feeling better today!

    Paula - glad the treatments didn't wipe you out this time. extra prayers for you today!

    Sewhot/Sarah - How nice you popped in for a visit! See what you, Mom and family helped create? A quilty group of friends who really care about and support each other! It just feels so warm and cozy when you enter the "room"! Hope you come back often and join the fun!

    Well, thanks for making my am break so enjoyable! Now back to the grind....but it is a happy grind cuz the weekend is waiting at the end of it!

    Hope you

    Happy Friday everyone. So glad it's here. I have a baby shower tomorrow to go to for my DIL. 1 of 2. I have made two quilts for my new Grandson to be, I've had them back from the quilter for two weeks and now I'm down to the wire with the binding, as I need them tomorrow. I know I will have one completed and just tell her I need the other one back and I will finish it next week and give it back to her the next weekend when I see her.

    Went to bed with rain last night and looks like it has moved out of Georgia so Blondie I guess you are getting our rain.

    Quiltingtrish - I hope everything goes well with Odie and his surgery.

    Sandy- I hope your hand appointment goes well.

    Blondie - I like the idea as well of the multi colors in the muslin. The block looks great.


    Hope everyone else has a great weekend and happy quilting.

    Lynne
