A Little Bit Of This And That from Quilting My Way

This morning it felt good to sleep in. I needed it. I just seem to be having trouble getting up in the mornings and not feeling tired.

I did some cleaning and then I decided to try and finish the piece I was working on yesterday. My beading is coming along. I would like to get a few of my ornaments done so I can give them out for Christmas.


I started out here, finding a couple mistakes and fixing them.


Then I finally finished it. I do have a mistake that is easy to see from the photo. I ...

A Day With Family And Friends from Quilting My Way

This morning I just couldn't get up. So, I kept going back to sleep. We got our walking in around 8:30 am. While we were walking my cousin called and asked if I could help her out. Told her I would be in Olympia already, so she didn't need to come down to pick me up. They were buying a trailer van. Told her I would pick them up on my way home.  I was able to get moving and go to Olympia sooner than I thought.

I called Sharon to tell her I was on my ...

Enjoying The Day.....Driving Trip from Quilting My Way

This morning we headed out to Costco in Olympia. Patrick wanted to take the "long way" to get there. I was game, because there are some really pretty areas to drive around and see. Funny part was, he was going in one direction and we ended up back in Rochester WA. So, we had to turn around and head back up to Olympia. We came in the "back way."

While we were there we picked up stuff for mom as well. I was looking for sheets for my son, but they didn't have the "full" or "double" size. I ...

It Was A Rainy Day...... from Quilting My Way

Woke to rain. Called Ethel to tell her I was going to pick her up at 9 am but she told me Anne was picking her up......Not happy. I had told her on Tuesday I would take her to moms. I wouldn't have gone otherwise. Now I had to go because I picked up some bread yesterday for her. Not happy at all. I was still fuming when I got to moms.....AND half the quilters were already there!! We start at 10 am and it was only 9:20 am. That didn't make me happy either ...

Honoring Local Veterans Today from Quilting My Way

Today it was a day to honor our local veterans. I love our QOV meetings and presentations.

I took a walk with Cherry before heading over the Veterans Memorial Museum. We got in our mile. Then it was off to the museum.

I arrived early to get a few things done. Then a couple of them came in early as well. First Jim and I went over the veterans that were receiving the quilts. We made sure we had enough information on them. Then I started upstairs to see what needed to be done. When 2 more came in, I ...

Not My Best Day For Beading from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and out walking with Cherry. Once that was done, we worked on her family history. We looked up her Kribs family from Canada. Since I have the international on ancestry right now, I wanted to hep her out with information. We got some more information for her. Then it was 11 am.

Came home and got busy with laundry and beading. I do beading on the table and when the laundry is done, then I could hear it and get another load done.


While I beaded, Sophie enjoyed my chair.


I got 4 rows done ...

Happy Birthday To Me! from Quilting My Way

I woke up this morning and sang Happy Birthday to myself.

After getting cleaned up and cleaning up the kitchen, I headed downstairs while Patrick went out in the yard. He does an awesome job in the yard.

While I was downstairs, I decided I needed to go through my stuff. I wanted to weed down what I could. I started in on the shelves that has my boxes. I used Patrick's label maker and labeled the boxes that I had with stuff I wanted.


The left side is pretty much ready and waiting. The right side is what ...

Not One Of My Better Days from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up early and out the door to meet Sandy. I had a headache when I woke up and thought I could get through the day with it. Not in your life~!

I met Sandy at Berryfields in Centralia. We were met by Bev as well. We chatted for awhile and ordered breakfast. It wasn't much after we eat that I started to feel the effects of the headache. It was a migraine ~ one I rarely get....so I went to the bathroom and came back out. No worries then. We chatted more and then I ...

A Day Away From Home from Quilting My Way

Today I was up and ready to go. It was raining all morning.

Of course I had to load up my car with quilt tops, batting and backing. Then I had the beads all loaded up. I couldn't go to Olympia without stopping for a Chai Tea! Sharon called before I let to let me know she was home and I could come up when I was ready. Told her to give me a half hour, but it took longer than that. lol

I was on the road after getting my tea. It was raining and I hit a ...

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! from Quilting My Way

Happy Mother's Day to every mother or anyone that fills the title.

Today I tried to sleep in. I did for awhile. Then I got up. When Patrick finally got up he gave me my Mother's Day gift of chocolates. I LOVE my chocolates. He gave me both dark chocolate and white chocolate. Shortly after that Katt called to talk. It was so good to hear from her. I've missed her lately.

I ordered more fabric for QOV. I needed to get some fabric for the panels that I got. I will wait a little bit and ...

Quilting With Friends from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and out the door to moms. It was quilting at moms. I arrived around 9:30 am and Hildi was already there. She brought the 2 quilts that Barbara had done. It was so good to have those!


I took out the right side border. That was a mistake, as the fabric is was going in the wrong direction. Plus the stars were supposed to be three on the top part. So, I took the seam ripper with me and took the border apart. I hope to get it sewn back on tomorrow and work ...

It Turned Out To Be A Good Day from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and ready to walk. Cherry called and cancelled because of her foot. She has a golf ball size lump on her ankle. So, we decided to wait and see how the afternoon goes.

I played a few games. Then I got side tracked with ordering some fabric for QOV. After that I got side tracked again with genealogy. I worked a little better on my Matheson family as well as the White family. This was interesting. I was working on a White family that really was connected to my White family just yet. It's ...

A Day To Myself...Sort Of from Quilting My Way

This morning I woke at 9 am and panicked. I called Cherry and she asked if I heard the phone ring a little while ago. Heck no! I didn't realize she called. I usually wake after the first two rings! Asked her to give me an hour and I'd be up there.

We walked a mile and chatted about everything. We chatted more after we were done too.

By the time I got home it was 11:30 am. Half the morning was gone. Oh, well. I got my lunch and the played a few games. I couldn ...

Enjoying BE Meeting and Beading from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and almost ready to leave for Brazilian embroidery meeting. I was running a little behind. All because I was reading a book - yep, reading!

I arrive around 10:30 am and was able to sit and have fun. We had 5 of us there.


I finished the 2 leaves that needed to be done. Then I started to add another stem. I'm getting closer to getting this done.

Came home and got laundry going. I was able to get a couple loads done. While that was going on, I was beading. Turned my music ...

Working On A Few Things from Quilting My Way

This morning I got to sleep in. The sun was up but I wasn't. It felt good to sleep just a little longer.

Once Patrick was up, he headed outside to work in the yard. I cleaned up the kitchen and then went to work on my Danish dough. It took awhile. I'll let it rest in the refrigerator over night. We'll see how that goes tomorrow.

Then I decided to work on my cross stitching and watch a couple shows. Not ones I really wanted to watch, but it gave me something so watch.


Bad lighting ...

A Day Of Fun! from Quilting My Way

This morning I didn't want to get up, but did. I was ready to go walking with Sherry. We got in 1.1 miles. I'm okay with that. She wasn't doing so good this morning. She was telling me all week that she needed to go to town. It's funny but she still didn't make it to town. She was hoping to make it into town today. Guess I'll find out if she did tomorrow.

Came back home and got laundry going. Then I got the vacuum out and vacuumed. I finally vacuumed up ...

Enjoyed A Day With Beading And A Friend from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and out the door to walk. Sherry and I got in our walking. Then I was in the car and off.

I had my list telling me what I needed to bring with me up to Olympia. But before I headed up there I ordered some sandwiches as Chehalis Deli. I was in SHOCK at having to pay $35 for 2 1/2 sandwiches! It didn't used to be that expensive! I guess I'm not doing that again. I also stopped at moms and dropped off some stars that she finished. She was ...

Enjoyed The Day With A Good Friend from Quilting My Way

This morning I was woke up by the phone. Sherry called about walking today, and we decided on doing that in the afternoon because Sandy was coming over.

Sandy stopped and got us some tea/coffee. I say that because I'm the tea drinker and she's the coffee drinker. We had a really good time working on our beading. She even brought a really good salad for lunch.


We both got about this much done on our beading. This snowman is so cute! I can't wait to finish him!

After she left, Sherry and I went walking ...
