Getting Another Finish Going from Quilting My Way

This morning I was kicked out to the couch at 5 am. I did good till then. I'm at least getting more sleep then I had been getting in awhile. It feels good to be on the mends.

I worked on my beading today. I wanted to get the cats all done so I can get them put into the ornament. It will give me a finish! We will go to Shipwrecked beads on Wednesday to get the beads that will finish this.


They are looking good.


Now it is time to finish these off.

I then decided to ...

Getting A Lot Better from Quilting My Way

Today I felt a lot better than I have in over 2 weeks. My throat is the only issue. I can't seem to talk now, but that is the only issue so far.

I woke to find Katt gone. I figured she was off taking photos. She's leaving in the morning. So, I took her quilt and put it on the bed downstairs so she could see it when she came back.


It looks good on the spare bed. She seems really happy with it. It was one she picked and I worked on it while at retreat ...

A Day In Olympia With A Friend from Quilting My Way

Before I start out the day, I wanted to show what I did get done yesterday after I blogged. I had a good hour in on my cross stitching.


I'm getting to the last page. I am happy that I haven't mucked up much so far. This is coming along great.

Then today I was up and out the door. I went to Safeway and picked up a chocolate pie for Sharon and Bill. Then I was on the road heading up to Olympia. I'm happy to say I arrived at 10:30 am like I said ...

Quilts Of Valor Presentation Day from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and getting a few things done before heading to the Veteran's Memorial Museum in Chehalis. Our group - Veteran's Memorial Museum QOV - had a presentation today. We were presenting 6 quilts to veterans. We had over 55 people attend. It was awesome! We had 2 WWII veterans - one turned 100 and she was a nurse. The other is in his 90's. He was a kick. It was hard trying to get him to come because he thought Faye was a telemarketer. She finally was able to tell him he was getting a quilt ...

An Interesting Day from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up early. I had to go to the dentist at 10 am. So, while I was waiting to leave I worked on the laundry and my beading. I got a few more rows done before heading to the dentist.

Since I was having my "new teeth" put in I was a little nervous. It was weird I will say that much. When they were screwing in the teeth it reminded me of Patrick working on some of my projects. lol It was so funny!

After all that I was off to the museum to make sure ...

Rotation Seems To Work from Quilting My Way

Today started out slow. Woke to snow coming down. Of course that didn't last long.  


I checked my email and found a lot of chatter going around about what to do for Pat. Got tired of the chattering and called Georgie. She wanted to do something asap. Of course no one in the group offered to do anything,  just had voiced their thought.  One ticked both of us off when they didn't want to pay for delivery fees. We decided I would get the plant for her and get it moving. So I ordered a plant basket for ...

Enjoyed The Day from Quilting My Way

This morning I played games. I just wanted to relax and really didn't want to do much. So, I played games. Patrick slept in, so I didn't get my shower till around 11 am. I didn't mind because I had the morning to myself and Sophie.

Patrick turned on bowling. I sat at the table and worked on my bead work. I really can't see what the photo shows. It's coming along and it is starting to show up better.


The bird's head doesn't look right, but when you look up close it ...

Enjoyed A Trip To Portland from Quilting My Way

This morning we were up and out the door. We headed down to Jansen Beech in OR. Just outside of Portland.

We thought we were going to the mall there, but found they changed the mall to a lot of shops outside. We had a walk around to the different shops. I bought some clothes. We went to best buy to find Patrick a stereo system. We ended up buying some CD's instead. They didn't have what we wanted and they were clearing out the CD's. I have a CD player downstairs and it would be nice ...

Getting Ready for Patrick's 60th Birthday from Quilting My Way

Today I needed to work on Patrick's Birthday cake. I had the recipes ready. I couldn't find any coconut cream anywhere in town or at Ikea - not that it would have been there. So, I ended up using the frosting for the filling. Oh, well.

I spent most of the afternoon with the cake.


It's all ready for tomorrow. Wonder if he will cut it before going to work. - Guess I'll find out in the morning. I need to go out and get a card and something to go with it. He wanted something special for ...

Shopping And Stitching from Quilting My Way

We were up early. I got some laundry going.

Then we headed out to go bowling. We were scheduled to pre-bowl for Wednesday at noon today. We did okay. Poor Denise is having trouble getting back up there with her bowling. I did a little better as I went along. I bowled a 158, 178, 189.  I beat Patrick the last two games but he beat me in series. We don't know how we did because they didn't have our averages and handicap yet. So, we will just have to wait and see next Sunday night.

After bowling ...

Getting There from Quilting My Way

Today I was up and decided I needed to get a few things done. I wanted to have them done so I didn't have to do them this weekend.

The first thing was getting the quilts to Ethel for binding. She does an awesome job of binding the quilts. She'll have them done in the next week or so. I gave her 2 weeks to do them. Then I headed to Rita's. I was hoping she had the wax I can't find for my embroidery. I know I have it, but can't find. She didn ...

What A Day from Quilting My Way

This morning I had a dream. It was of my father. He was in a bar like area. I knew he had passed on, but when I saw them (two people between us), I couldn't believe it. The person next to me told me not to go, it was a "dream." I had to see, so I walked toward him. He turned to me. I asked if he was real, and he let me touch him. It was real. I looked up and he said, "I know, I'm sorry." I asked how and he told me it took ...

Enjoyed The Day.....Just The Two Of Us from Quilting My Way

This morning we started out slow. Didn't have anything to really do today. So, we enjoyed watching TV for a bit.

Then bowling was on TV. So, "we" had to watch that - at least it wasn't a football game that wasn't the Seahawks. While "we" watched TV, I went into the computer room to get some of my secretary duties done. Paid bills and got our billing done. I'm happy with the way it came out. Next I will have to close out all this years stuff and get next years in order. I have to ...

All Day To Myself On Christmas Eve from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up early. Just because. Patrick had to work so it was just me all day.

This was actually the first or second time I've had Christmas Eve by myself. I think the first time was the year after Patrick and I were married. But then I think I spent it with my brother and sister-in-law. I really don't ever remember having Christmas Eve to myself.

This year of all years and I was alone most of the day. Sophie kept me company. I did laundry and worked on my cross stitch while watching a ...

Went Shopping Today Of All Days from Quilting My Way

This morning Patrick and I wanted to get out early. We went up to Costco to pick up the Prime Rib they have with all the garlic and stuff. Dad used to do that part, and we would cook it. Dad loved his Prime Rib. He would buy a big one and we'd have plenty to eat. It was busy, and things were packed. We didn't buy a lot. But we didn't have to wait too long to get through the line. I noticed a few others were there for the Prime Rib too.

We got home ...

From A Party To A Massage from Quilting My Way

This morning I got moving early. I was up and running at 7:30 am. I got the dough going for my Christmas Cinnamon Bread. I started it for Phil but realized after I was putting the star together, it had egg and he couldn't have that. Dang! I was pushing with time. I needed to be at our Christmas Party (at Cil's house) by 11 am. I was still rolling the dough at 10 am. I was pushing time. But I did love working on this.


I love the design that came out of it. It's ...

Qu= from Quilting My Way

Today I was up and running. Had to get the house vacuumed and clean up a few things before company arrived. Patrick helped decorate the table last night, so that I didn't have a lot to do. Cherry called to say she wouldn't make it, she wasn't feeling good. I brought her gift for the exchange. I have her gift here and will take it to her tomorrow.

Pat arrived first and then the rest started coming. We had 8 of us. It was so much fun. We didn't get any work done, just chatted the ...

Another Day Of Baking And Bowling from Quilting My Way

This morning we were up and moving. Patrick was cleaning the bathrooms. I was getting started with the Scandinavian Almond Bread. I decided to try and make them in the smaller bread pans. That way I can give one away as a gift if I wanted to. Patrick will cut one for his work tomorrow. I'll cut the other one for tomorrow when the Christmas Party gets going.

I also started bread. I had a bread for Scott and Teri and one for us. The one for Scott and Teri turned out awesome. The one I made for us ...

Didn't Stay Long With Friends from Quilting My Way

This morning was one that I really didn't want to get up for. Not sure why, but I was wanting to sleep more. I behaved and got up anyway.

I checked to see where my scissors where. I had a pair missing and wanted to take them with me to our meeting. I found them under the chair. I was texting Susy about the quilt kit that was donated. We will do it for Mike. I'd like her to make it, and I'll do some applique. We will chat about it before I get started. I'm ...
