Cherie Gets a Shout Out!
Nann sent this article to me! Cherie rides a commuter train and quilts her way to and from work. I love hearing stories like this. And much to my surprise, she listed my blog as one of her faves. Thanks Cheri! And way to go, using up that boring commuter time to take some stitches! I love it when I am traveling and can do the same. It's not the same when I am taking my car, but I love the time to stitch in airports and on planes. :c)
Well, Saturday did have me going 20 miles to my guild's sew in day. I just couldn't NOT go. I tell you though, I am SO upset with the gas gouging. There is just NO EXCUSE for that! I think they should all be prosecuted, those stations and companies who can jump on a disaster and grasp it as an opportunity for unwarranted profit at the expense of us normal folk just trying to get by.
I had a wonderful time with the ladies. Laura and Lisa and I hit a Greek food place for lunch. YUMMY!! I got the binding and sleeve sewn on Old Tobacco Road, and the hand stitching is in progress. It just depends how much football I can stand while I'm stitching :c| I can only take it in small bursts! *LOL* Now maybe if I sat there with the MP3 player in my ears and listened to a story, I'd do better!
I spent the other part of the day at the sew in, piecing parts for the border of Stars over Shallotte. It might be the weekend before I get anything else sewn on it. I've got a wedding quilt I need to finish today, and some others waiting their turn as well. I'm home for the rest of September, so this is the time for me to buckle down and get those off the "must do" list!
