Guess who is coming over today to play??
She is home from Ohio, all is well there. Oh, that grandbaby of hers is SO stinking cute!
i can’t wait to see all of the photos that have taken up residency in Mona’s phone.
Remmeber the baby albums of yesterday, how they would unfold all the way to the floor with photos of kids and grandkids?
Now, it’s our phones! My, how technology changes things.
I arrived in the pounding rain yesterday afternoon. I set in right away to getting the binding on the “Oh, My Stars!” quilt, with the plan to sit in the evening and hand stitch the binding down.
I was so tired I didn’t get that far, but I do like the way it is turning out:
Love that red finish!
I also spent some time with this!
I am kitting up block parts to take to Texas with me on the 28th. I’m teaching in Mineola for Stitchin’ Heaven Quilt Shop and I’ve got a loaner machine (From Irene who is coming too!) and hope to sew up 800+ 4 patches, all scrappy!
Because I don’t want to do a lot of cutting on the road, just sewing, I am doing all of the strip sets this weekend, and also the subcutting in already matched pairs:
Baggied in sets of 100!
From these baggies I can tell that I have a long long way to go. And that’s where Mona comes in! She is going to come sew with me while I sew and sub cut more strip-sets. It will make a boring job, much more fun!
Mona’s birthday was this week, mine is on the 23rd, so we are celebrating this weekend and next –there will be dinner out on the town tonight!

Quiltville Quote of the Day!
Mind over matter as they say! In other words, what you think about matters. Take control of negative feelings and turn them around. Venting in public is highly overrated as your words really can ruin someone else's day. Show negative thoughts who's boss! And when all else fails, go sew something! Antique Dutchman's puzzle quilt found in McKinney Texas.
Have a terrific Saturday, everyone!
