The dress really turned out well CC.  Fits perfect!  Good heavens, wasn't she cold up there in Montana?

What was I up to today?  Well I finally finished Diane's second BD block, will mail it out tomorrow.  I also pulled fabric for five other BD blocks and hope to start work on them tomorrow.  I've had a dry spell here but I think it's run it's coarse and I'm back on track.

Been kind of a lazy Sunday.  Was later coming home from church because I had to wait around for my son to get out of second service.  I go to first service and then have Bible study.  We always finish with Bible studt before the second service gets over.  David rode with me because Celeste had to work later in the preschool nursery.  There were a couple of meetings going on right after the service.  After I made lunch for Dave and me, I fiddled around in my stash, looking for some fabrics for my class next Sat.  Then I worked on shorts for a while.  After i got everything sewn that i could with dark blue thread, I took the dogs for their walk.  It was so nice that we sat out in the swing for a while just enjoying ourselves.  Autumn thinks she is a lap dog - all 65 lbs of her!  After I got them settled in for the night with food and fresh water, it was time for supper.  Where did the day go to????

this is for all you nurses out there.   it seems the virus/flu, we girls had the past weeks, is a pox?    anna was the only one that came down with spots.she didn't get the spots until the fever was nearly gone.   they started as little fluid filled vessicles with redness spreading out about a cm. from the center.  today, she has two left.  one is in her nostril and has spread down under her nose, then crusted over.  the other is on her chin and i just got  a good look at it,  she was with me today.   it looks just like a chicken pox that has scabbed over about 7mm round.   how many poxes are out there.  wendy and i have both had chicken pox, and anna has had her vaccine.    any wisdom out there for us?    gini

Wow Gini.  I didn't think there was any other than chicken pox.  I will be interested in hearing from our nurses in the group as to what this might be.

Just in case any of you need a new excuse.......

If I Don't Buy That Fabric I'll Surely Faint!

Few true sewers, quilters or fabric crafters need an excuse to buy more fabric. We are hooked on cotton. We obsess over silk. We daydream about calicos and ginghams and plaids. But just in case you need to explain to others why you have a million yards of fabric at home, but still need a few more fat quarters and just have to buy yardage of the newest prints ... here's a handy list of reasons you need more fabric! Copy this list and tuck it in your purse for quick reference!

  • It is a patriotic duty to support cotton farmers, textile mills and fabric shops.
  • "Oh, it's not for me! I'm buying it for a friend!"
  • It's on sale.
  • I need extra weight in the trunk of my car for traction on snowy, icy roads. This is important, even in Florida and Southern California, as you never know when the weather will change.
  • It's non-fattening.
  • Like dust, it's good for protecting previously empty spaces in the house.
  • Because it's there.
  • It's much cheaper to cover the floor with fabric than new carpeting.
  • The devil made you do it.
  • It's the only remotely artistic thing I have ever done.
  • I can't live without it.
  • I have new shelves for fabric storage.
  • It will go with some I bought last year.
  • It's so pretty, and I'll use it some day.
  • I want my daughter to have a proper inheritance.
  • Without fabric, I would have nothing to do with my rotary cutter and my mat and my sewing machine.
  • It does not promote tooth decay.
  • It calms the nerves, gratifies the soul and makes one feel good.
  • If I don't buy it now, I may never see it again.
  • A large fabric stash is the sign of a creative mind.
  • I owe myself a reward for that half-pound I lost last month.

Marge~Love the "If I Don't But That Fabric". I can't  decide which of them pertains to me b/c I think they all do. LOL I just can't stop buying more. I'm helplessly addicted.

LOL. Call the kettle black, Marge! I love it!

Gini, I'm sorry you had the pox. At least with a virus, you aren't likely to get it again. Let us know what it was when you find out!

Today I worked on the graduation quilt a bit more. I'm still having trouble with those funky little tuckies.  Grrr. It's about half quilted.  Do I quit now, frog it all and start over, or continue as it is and and hope for the best...??

DS1 wanted to learn how I made a certain bead the other day, so today i set him up at the touch and he created a nifty "camophlage" bead...gotta be a guy even when creating jewelry components, after all!! It came out really cool!  When he finished up. I took over and threw a handful of matching bobbles. I wanted to try some 'out of my comfort zone" colors and some more challenging shapes. After supper I strung them all together in this new set. I'll hopefull do a few more sets and have enough to drop off at the gallery later this month. Share your thoughts and honest critiques??  Thanks.

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.
