Running Around On Monday..... from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and getting ready to leave when I had to call Cherry. We chatted for awhile, then Art called. By the time I could get out the door it was 9:30 am. Our meeting time.

I arrived at our BFF meeting (Brazilian embroidery) at 9:45 am. There were five others there when I got there.


When I finally got working on my piece, I was able to work on my rose. It's coming along. I'm surprised in the order that we do this, but there has to be a reason for that ...

Finished a Top for QOV from Quilting My Way

Yesterday I didn't get a lot done, so I didn't post. I will show you what I was working on though.


We had our meeting yesterday, and I started "A Rose For My Mother" embroidery. I am enjoying the satin stitches. I hope I can do this one justice.

Today I enjoyed not having to hurry up and leave for a meeting or whatever. I'm liking this kind of day.

I was up and enjoying my games. Then I went downstairs to finish up the quilt top I was doing for QOV. Took a break for lunch ...

What A Day! from Quilting My Way

Sophie woke me up around 7:30 am. Guess she didn't want us sleeping in today. She's so used to Patrick being up at 6:30 am that she figured he must be late, I guess. So, I got up and she didn't have much to do with me!


I worked on my games. Then Patrick went out and picked his grapes. I made him wait before he started cooking the grapes for his juice. I made fudge, because Patrick was hungry for it. Chances are it will be all gone by this Thursday, if that. I ...

It Was Another Busy Saturday from Quilting My Way

Today was one of those days where it was none stop, from one place to another.

We were up and off to Patrick's work. He fixed what needed to be fixed, then we were off to the doughnut shop in Centralia. We both got doughnuts and milk.

We ended up eating them on the way to the casino. Funny thing, we didn't stay longer than 30 mins this time.

Then it was off to the movies where we saw "A Clock in the Wall," or something like that. It was really good Well worth seeing if you like ...

Got Back To Working On My Hawaiian Quilt from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and out the door to moms. Stopped and got us both a Chai Tea. Then went to moms. We then went to "The Gathering Place" to get together with quilters. The funny part was, they forgot to put it in the calendar for the community. So, it was just mom and I, with one other person. We cut out my Hawaiian quilt top, that we worked on before Dad went into the hospital. Actually, now that I think of it, it was while he was in with his knee. So, he never did get to ...

Decided To Stay Home from Quilting My Way

Today I was up early. Sophie and I just laid on the bed and I played on the tablet.

Once I got started, I worked on the laundry. Then I started working on the computer. I was having "issues" with the computer and decided to clean it.....well, we all know how that went.....3 hours later, I could get back to using my computer.

So, while it was cleaning, I was stitching.


I was able to get all but 3 of the flower sets done. I really like the way it came out. At times, I didn't think ...

One Of Those Days...Phone Call After Phone Call from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up at 2 and 4 am. I had to give Sophie TLC. Then, of course, I couldn't go back to sleep. So, when 8 am came around, I didn't want to get up. I really wanted to sleep all day, but was good, and got my rear out of bed.

First thing, the phone ran. It was my cell phone, and of course it was advertising! I hate Advertising on my phone!! I even signed up on the register where they aren't supposed to call me...so much for that registry. I would ...

A Day Of Brazilian Embroidery, Baking, And Beading from Quilting My Way

Today I was up on time. I wanted to get my sourdough bread kneaded. I also wanted to add roasted garlic to the dough. So, I was busy working on the dough. Once that was done, I was out the door to our meeting.

I arrived right after Pat. She and I were laughing about how we seem to be the "die hards" that show up every time. It wasn't too long after I arrived that the other 4 arrived. It was good to see Jeannette. She's a kick. Bev was there but Sandy couldn't make it ...

Our Embroidery Meeting Day from Quilting My Way

Today I really didn't want to get out of bed, but I did. I needed to get ready for our Brazilian embroidery group. I had the egg cartons ready for Sandy. I got my stuff together and was out the door a little late. Partly because I called the dentist to set an appointment to find out what was so painful in my mouth

I arrived before Sandy (1). Sandy (2) was already there with Pat and another gal that comes round during the summer time We had a good meeting and we are thinking of advertising for Rita ...

Visited With Mom After Brazilian Embroidery from Quilting My Way

Today was a good day. I was able to get a visit in with my Brazilian embroidery gals and then with mom. It's a good day when things seem to run together well.

It started out with getting my stuff together to take to mom's. Then my Three Wishes piece needed to be ready to take to the meeting. I went and collected the beads as well.


I finished the top flower set and started the one on the bottom. I'm almost done and ready to work on the base of the "coffee pot" which I call ...

Morning Meeting - Busy Day from Quilting My Way

Today was busier than I planned, but we all seem to plan days like that. At first it's only a meeting day, and as the day goes on, it seems to have other things added to it.

I started out by going to our BFF Brazilian embroidery meeting. We had a good show this time. We ended up with two different tables of members. So, we all didn't get to spend time with everyone. It just seemed to be with friends we sat with. I left early (only half hour). But before I left, we all agreed that ...

BE Meeting And Cross Stitching from Quilting My Way

This morning was our BFF (BE meeting) day. I was all ready to go. Called Cherry to see if she was going. She was waiting on the guys that do her yardwork. They hadn't arrived yet.

So, I headed out to our meeting. Got there on time, and only Pat was there. It turned out to be just the two of us. I said we could wait till 10 am and then she could go home. She leaves about 2 hours north and she was tired after having her granddaughter for a week. No one showed up, so we ...

A VERY VERY Hot Day! from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up bright and early. As soon as the sun was up, so was I. It had finally cooled down around 3 am this morning.....

We took the day off - so to speak. Patrick watered the garden and got the yard going. Then I went out and picked blueberries for a couple hours. I got about 8 cups of blueberries. Then came in and closed the house down. By that time it was reaching 80 degrees....way too hot for me.

So, we watched TV and had the fan going - nope don't have air conditioning and ...

A Good Day.....Worked On My WIP! from Quilting My Way

Actually not sure if I should say WIP or UFO. It's a work in progress, but is's also a unfinished object. Guess I'll just say it's both.



Today started out pretty good. I was playing games and Patrick worked outside. Then we decided to head to the movies. We went to see "Dracula goes on Vacation" or at least I think that's the name Never did very good with names. It was a pretty good movie. Funny part is that now when they do movie "trailers," what's in the trailer isn't showing up ...

Always Enjoy Being With Good Friends from Quilting My Way

Today was our BFF meeting day. Brazilian embroidery day. I had it here because Pat wasn't coming and she's the one that opens the church. Lately the church has other things going, so during the summer we usually come here.

I was up early, got coffee ready to make, and waited. Cherry called and said she couldn't make it because she had an appointment change with her hair. She also was waiting on the lawn guys to go over to her place. That was the only one I heard from - other than Sandy (2) and Pat. So ...

Father's Day - Without My Father from Quilting My Way

Today is father's day. I took a picture of dad and posted it on Instagram. AND cried. I would have loved to have given him a hug and kiss!

So, we worked around the house till it was time to go to the movies. We decided to go to the movies. I worked on my red heart piece.

We went to see "Then Incredible s" at the theater. It was a good movie! I really enjoyed it. Trouble was, I could see some political stuff in it, but I didn't care.

Got back and enjoyed working on my ...

Enjoying Being Back Home from Quilting My Way

Even though Seminar is still going on tonight, and people will be leaving there today, it was nice to be home again. After two weeks of being gone, I am happy to be home again.

Today I slept in for a little while. Then got up and played on my tablet. It had been awhile since I was able to play on my tablet, since I didn't take it with me.

One of the guys from Patrick's work came and brought his son. They checked out our car and decided to buy it. It was the first brand ...

One More Day And We Head Back Home from Quilting My Way

Today we were up and off to our morning class. We took a class from Debbie Kelley called "Queen of Hearts." We all got a kit and some floss to go with it. We ended up paying a little more because it cost a little more then she thought it would. So, we all were happy to help her out.

(Photo to come later)

I surprised myself by liking the class. I am going to do something different from her pattern, so it will be fun.

We then had lunch with everyone, but we seem to be sitting by ourselves ...

Second Day Of Seminar! from Quilting My Way

This morning Sandy and I slept in. We aren't doing the breakfast with everyone, so we ate in our rooms. I worked out great, because nether one of us are breakfast people - or she's not right now. She's lost 70 lbs so far, and has been doing great! So, she has her food for now. I just don't do breakfast, never really was crazy about breakfast after I turned 20.

We didn't have a class this morning, so we got a few things together, worked on a couple things, and then headed out to Acorn ...

Arrived At Seminar! from Quilting My Way

Today is the day for Seminar! Even though it started yesterday, we arrived today. It was a morning trip that started at 9:30 am. We arrived here in Portland, OR around 11:30 am. It's not far, but the roads can be a pain at times. The roads were good till we got to Jansen Beach area. Then we took a little longer to get past that area to get here.

We arrived and collected our stuff. We got a room next to a couple of TX gals. It's kinda hard to do, when they keep the ...
