What’s more fun than a class room full of Quilters?
A HOUSE full of Quilters!
After dinner last night ((Home made tortellini soup, garlic bread, and salad, all by Deb ---the Kitchen WIz!)) Marti had a fun plan for us to pamper ourselves just a bit.
It was cold and rainy and dreary outside – our tummies were full of yummy food and we were unwinding and enjoying each others company after the long day ----
Marti decided to give us all a Shay Butter Wax hand treatment!
I’ve never had this done before, but boy did it feel good --- smelled good too! Lavender! Not only one of my favorite colors, but favorite smells too!
She stirred and stirred until all the wax was melted in what looked like it's own crock pot ----when it was ready --- I was the first to go in!
Dip Three Times --- (( I’m getting the lyrics to “knock three times on the ceiling if you want me ---" going through my head!)) Can you see the rain splashing on the deck outside the window?
Hurry quick! Wrap your hand up in a plastic bag all nice and snug…….
Then on goes the mitt to keep it nice and warm! Don’t ask me why I look like I am singing “And The Rocket’s Red Glare!!!” here ----Carrie just caught me at a wide mouth moment! LOL! What can I say? We had 4 women in this bathroom at one time….LOL!
Next it was Anne’s turn…..doesn’t that feel good?
Anne and I give each other high-fives with our snuggly mitts on! When these hands are done, we will repeat with the other hands ----in the mean time:
Carrie goes in with her left --- while Marti stands guard ready to baggie her up!
THIS is Carrie’s tattoo!
If I ever got brave enough to get a tattoo --- it may be something like this…or it might say something like “Here today, Gone to Pieces!” :cD
After Carrie and her mom left --- with the smoothest softest hands ever --- Marti and I set down to do some evening stitching. I brought my white featherweight with me this time….when I plugged her in the other day, her motor had a squeal in it from not being used often enough --- poor baby! She’s warmed up and humming now….I got about 10 Wild & Goosey blocks stitched last night from cast off crumbs.
If you have a vintage machine in your closet and it hasn’t come out to play in quite a while --- get it out..run it…they are happiest when used and used often!
