My Friday Quilting from Quilting My Way

This morning I was out the door to moms. I took the pillow cases for Nancy. She's got us set up for a presentation on the 26th. That's the same day mom will be coming back from Las Vegas. We need to figure out if mom can get someone to pick her up or if I need to miss the presentation. 

I worked on my block. 


 I put the last petal on. Didn't get anything else done. I should have taken a photo, but didn't. I will show it after I add the next layer. 

We ...

My Friday Meeting Day from Quilting My Way

 I packed up the quilt tops, thread, quilt, project and veggies to go to moms. My first stop was to Connie to drop off the quilt tops to be quilted for QOV. Then it was off to moms. I showed the quilt to the gals. This was the quilt that Sandy gave me to see if we could use it for a QOV quilt. It is also a Queen size quilt. After a lot of chattering, they decided it would not work. It's too big, and the theme (even though red, white and blue), didn't go with patriotic ...

Golfing Day - My Day from Quilting My Way

 Today I wasn't in the mood to do anything! So, I watched my shows that were taped. Then I mopped around. Debbie stopped by to pick up her batting and backing for the quilts. As for me, I took awhile to get moving. Decided FINALLY at 2 pm to go for a walk. 

Since Patrick was gone all day, I had the day to myself. Not a good thing some times. When I came back from walking I decided I better do something. So, I sat down to bead. 

I was able to get 5 more rows in before ...

Yet Another Saturday from Quilting My Way

 Today I enjoyed sleeping in. 

Once Patrick and I took a walk and come home, I decided to enjoy my time beading. With audiobook on, I worked on my beading. 

The best part is that I'm to the bird now! I love how bright this is. I was able to do 14 rows today. I'm around 54/345. Can't remember what row I ended at. It's fun working on this. 

Then after I called it quits, I decided to enjoy watching the British shows with Patrick. That is - the last show "Summer Wine." As for the ...

Day To Myself - Mostly from Quilting My Way

 Today Patrick was up at 7 am and out the door to golf. That left me the whole day - explain as I go. 

So, first things first - what do I want to do today?! Not much.... Okay, play games till I decide. Sophie wanted her attention - so she got it. Then lunch time came around and I got lunch. Decided I would get some beading in. Not much but will work on it. 

I got in another 6 rows. Patrick got home when I was on the last 6th row. I decided to call it quits. 

Patrick and I watched ...

A Fun Day from Quilting My Way

This morning Patrick was up before me. 

We took a walk. Once that was over we came back we played with Sophie. She found a thick rubber band that she loves to play with. 

Patrick worked on grape jelly today. While he was doing that, I decided to bead. 


 I was able to get another 9 rows done. It's coming along great. I do like working on this. I get 3 rows done at a time. It takes almost as long as one rows did on the Snowman. This one has 345 rows. I'm at around 40 rows ...

Things To Do Today from Quilting My Way

This morning was up early. Patrick had an early golf time, and I needed to get ready for the dentist. I was going to go to the bank first but decided to wait. Good thing I did. My dental appointment was an hour long! Then was told I need to get one of my fillings redone. Not too thrilled about that. Apparently it's coming apart.  It is a "silver" filling and they don't do those any more and haven't done them for a long time. I told him I think it's one from when I was ...

Not Feel 100% Today from Quilting My Way

 Last night I had the first "attack" of reflex in a long time. My throat burned and I was "up-chucking" in my throat. It was awful! So, I went to the couch to see if that would help. I could sleep with my head on the arm rest, which help stop the reflex. Not fun! 

So, when I did wake up this morning, I had a good headache as well as not feeling good all day. I tried not to let it bother me. I felt better as the day went on, but it's not the best. 

Patrick was ...

HAPPY LABOR DAY! from Quilting My Way

 Labor Day is one of those days were family get together and enjoy the holiday. I remember times when we would take trips driving around to find a park where we would sit and have a picnic. My dad loved to travel and always wanted to drive somewhere. When the kids where younger, we would go to a park and have a picnic. Or we would get together with friends and have a good BBQ. 

This year, not so much. Patrick and I had the day to ourselves. So, we worked on cooking. Patrick got the meat for BBQ sandwiches ...

Just A Quiet Day - Not Much Going On from Quilting My Way

 This morning I was up and playing games. I like to play my weekend games. 

Then I went to work on my beading. While I was starting to bead, Patrick brought in a few of the smaller tomatoes from the garden. They didn't seem to be growing much so I peeled the ones Patrick brought in. Then I cooked them for tomato sauce but Patrick wanted to make BBQ. So, before we headed out to the movies, I put what I had cooked in the refrigerator. 

We saw "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings." I loved it ...

Cleaning And Beading from Quilting My Way

 Today started out with cleaning up. I cleaned up the kitchen, kitty litter, laundry and then vacuumed. It was a busy morning cleaning up. I needed to do that because it was driving me crazy that I hadn't vacuumed in a while. 

Then I sat down to bead. 

Since this is smaller, I can get more rows done then I could with the Snowman. This is a Parrot piece. I am at row 20 now. So, I got 14 rows done this afternoon. 

While I was beading Patrick came in to show me his raspberries! They were awesome!


They ...

It Was A Good Day from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up really early. Couldn't go back to sleep. So, I played for a little bit. Then we were off to Olympia once again. 

This time it was Patrick's doctor's appointment. So while he was in the doctors office, I was working on my embroidery. 


 I finished up the leaves and then started on the flower. I had started it wrong, which meant I needed to take it out. Then I put it back in. This is right, but the pattern calls for 3 petals between each quarter. I ended up with 4 because ...

Setting Up For Another Project from Quilting My Way

Today was a slow day. I took awhile to get moving. 

Once I did, I pulled out the light box and started marking the back of my block. I decided to do the back basting for the flower as well as change the color. 


 This is the original color I was going for - NOT bright enough. 

This is the color I'm going for now. I will put those on and then put the others on. There is a lot of step on this one. 

Once that was done, I went to get my beading started. YEP - another beading project ...

A Movie And A Finish! from Quilting My Way

This morning I was working on the blocks that I was looking at yesterday. I need to figure out what I want to do about my block. 


 I wanted bright. So, I decided to use these colors instead of what I was doing. I took out my work and threw it away. Then I tried to figure out what I wanted. After talking with Patrick, we came up with this. He isn't that crazy about my bright quilt, but think once it's done he will like it. 

Next it was time to go to the movie. We saw ...

Trying To Finish The Fish Box from Quilting My Way

 Today started out quiet. It was nice. I did go down to cut the batting and backing for another quilt (QOV). I will drop it off on my way to moms. We aren't doing any quilting tomorrow since she's still a little under the weather. I will take my "Garden My Way" quilt blocks to see what we have and what I need. It's all the blocks from the group. It's a friendship quilt. If I can get it put together then that will be another project done till it gets quilted. 

After all that, I ...

Better Photo Of My Finish! from Quilting My Way

This morning I wanted to do some cleaning up. So, I got laundry going and done. Then I had Patrick help me with a photo of the Snowman. 


 Patrick offered to show it off for me. lol It's done and Patrick put the rod through it. Looks great. 

Then I worked on a Lemon Meringue Pie for dessert. It turned out awesome! And grandma Wineland would be proud!

It was awesome too. Grandma W was the pie maker in the family. If someone said they were bringing a pie, she would bake one to show hers was better. 

After ...

Finally Finished!! from Quilting My Way

 This morning we headed up to Olympia for Patrick's blood tests. Then stopped at Costco to pick up a few things. Once we did that, we headed home. First we needed to stop at Safeway to pick a few things up for mom as she is under the weather. She's been couching so much that her chest hurts. She finally went back into the doctors and they did a chest x-ray and gave her medication. We dropped her stuff off and then headed to Phil's to drop off a few things as well. 

Came home and sat ...

Another Double Day from Quilting My Way

This morning I headed out to the grange. I was early and listened to my audiobook on the way as well as when I got there. Sandy V arrived shortly after I did. I was working on "Farwell to Ruth" by getting the threads ready to work on. 

I like the colors. I did find that I didn't have the greens I needed as well as a couple other flosses. So, I order them from my phone. I have a message saying they are in the mail. 

Then I decided to get to work on the other piece I ...

Last Day At The Fair from Quilting My Way

Today Patrick headed off to golfing. I worked on my beading for a little bit before leaving. I started seaming the seam to the front. It's like a zipper. 

I headed over to the fair. Ended up in the farthest part of the parking lot. So, I'm taking a bag that isn't that heavy into the fair. Of course that is going to be heaver when I leave! I set up the station for our QOV honors. 


The sign is what Smiley did for us. 


We even had the photo frame going. It went well today. I ...

Working On A Top Again from Quilting My Way

 This morning Patrick was off to his golf tournament. I was going to enjoy the day to myself. I had a hard time trying to decide if I wanted to work on my beading or go downstairs. I know I need to get more tops done, so I headed downstairs. 

I was tired of seeing this on the wall. I decided to go down and get to work on it. 

Of course there are those days when things go wrong. At least this was the only thing that went wrong so far! I sewed the two square together twice. So ...
