Meeting Day And So Much More! from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and going. I had breakfast with Katt. Then off to Cherrill's. She wasn't going to the meeting because she had a lot she wanted to do. So, I headed over to our meeting.



We had a good meeting. Only 5 of us made it, but that's understandable. We decided to have a Christmas meeting at my house on the 18th with potluck. Should be fun! We were talking about having an exchange. Not sure if everyone is for that, but I think that would be awesome.


I bought this from a gal ...

Enjoyed The Day....Forgot It Was Bowling Night from Quilting My Way

Started the day off early. Went over to Cherrill's and helped her out.

Came home and worked on my laundry and vacuumed. The got a bright idea of checking to see if I had a frame for my next start.

Next was off to my message therapy! I had an awesome hour of getting a message that killed me! My back was feeling it all afternoon!



Got my frames out and found the right side. I wanted to get it ready for when I'm ready to change or get started on this.


Then I decided to get the ...

Not A Day For Stitching...... from Quilting My Way

This morning I was out the door by 7:25 am. Met up with Art. Took him some bread I baked yesterday. He loves my homemade bread. I just wish I hadn't cut the dough in half and used a big pan to cook it. Oh, well.

We then headed to Yelm, WA for the casino. We go once a month and I was able to talk Patrick into letting me go this month. Got there and played a few games. I was staying up there, then I started going back up. I start with $100 and when it ...

A Day To Myself - WOW! from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and over to Cherrill's to help her out. She's doing good and has some awesome new washer and dryer! Helped her with her computer. Not much to do, since it has to do with the new Internet Explorer. I don't use IE any more because of major problems.

BEFORE I BEGIN - BDEIG - has been featured by Nordic Needle - check it out!

I came home and got started on my laundry. I love the dryer I got from Cherrill. I actually put everything away! I usually let my folded clothes stay on the ...

A Full Day of Bowling from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and ready to go by 9:15 am.

We met up with Kim, Virginia, and Theresa. We car pool! Patrick dropped me off and I was off with the gals. We arrived early to the bowling alley in Longview. The idea was to be there early and get breakfast. They make good meals there. Everyone ordered, and I had french toast with "half hash browns" which in reality were a FULL plate of hash browns. They all had eggs. There was 2 omelettes and Kim had a fried egg. I used to eat that, but ...

The Friday Before Veterans Day! from Quilting My Way

Today I was woken up at 8 am with a phone call. The one day I thought I would be able to sleep in and Patrick gets a call from work. Just what I wanted. The one day I could sleep in and really felt like sleeping in, and the phone rings.

Got the laundry room cleaned up. We bought Cherrill's old dryer that has more buttons then I have on my dryer. We traded out my dryer for this one. Ours is newer but the other one is great. So, ours went in the garage and the other ...

Meeting Day Again from Quilting My Way

Today I was up a little after 8 am. I just didn't want to get up. I'm really getting tired lately, but not real bad.

Went to Cherrill's and stayed for a little bit and chatted. I learned a little bit more about Tom's cancer that took his life about 3 years ago. He had liver cancer. Not what I wanted to hear with what I've been going through.

Then I was off to Olympia for our Quilts of Valor meeting. I was there just as they started. I was running out of time but ...

A Little Better Day Today! from Quilting My Way

Today I actually slept in. Patrick was up before me, and that is a really big thing around here! Surprise, Surprise.

I worked on the family history again. Had to fix all the stuff I did earlier and ended up deleting from ancestry! I tried to sync it with my program and it didn't work. So, I deleted the information. I had 2 days worth of stuff I needed to fix.

Then I got my game done. I enjoyed the relaxing day...even though I was working on laundry as well. Since tomorrow is going to be busy, I ...

Never Ending Sampler Panel 3 Band 1 from Kitty and Me Designs

I can't believe that today is November 1st!  Where did October go?

I know everyone needed some time to get caught up on Panels 1 and 2 of The Never Ending Sampler but now it's time to start on Panel 3!!

If you're new to this Stitch-Along, you'll want to read about it here.

Band 1 is worked with cross stitches and straight stitches.  The Bargello stitch around the center square should be worked with 3 strands of floss to give the look of satin stitching.

Here's a closeup of the center of the square ...

One Thing Leads To Another from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up right after Patrick left. Then over to Cherrill's.  Next off to the dentist.

Now, what is it about dentists I don't care for??! Hum, lets try the part of scrapping teeth. The cleaning went well. I was happy I didn't have any problems with my teeth. I waited 20 mins for the dentist to check my teeth. Yea, that's the part I don't like. He put two teeth on "watch" which have been on "watch" for at least 2 years now. Then there was the telling me my gums in ...

My Haunted House from Wendy's Quilts and More

Last night was Halloween.  I only have three Halloween decorations at my house, but I got all of them out a few weeks ago.  


First up is my Haunted House that I made from a pattern by Victoria Sampler.  You can read all about it in this blog post, and more about the other buildings in my Gingerbread Village on the tab at the top of the page.  


 I loved stitching this 3D building.  The ornaments that came with the accessory pack are just so cute!

 My second Halloween decoration is this small table mat I made for the Haunted ...

A Quiet Monday from Quilting My Way

Today I really wanted to sleep in. I got up anyway. I need to get up early tomorrow for my two appointments. Should be interesting. Then I have two more appointments on Wednesday. Doctors off called and wanted me to come in about my tests. Should be interesting. Guess that's my theme today - "Should be Interesting."

Came back from Cherrill's and vacuumed then got laundry going. I seem to have a heck of a lot of laundry after a weekend. All thanks to Patrick's cleaning. No worries.

Then, I got on the computer and worked on my ...

Seahawks Won & I Stitched from Quilting My Way

Today I slept in longer than I have before. It was nice.

Patrick worked out in the yard, and I baked some cookies for Dan. They were gluten free because I didn't have flour to bake with other than gluten free. They actually turned out great because I eat 5 of them before going bowling tonight!

While the game was on, I worked on my cross stitch.


I got started on the hair today. I've got a few more stitches for the hair, then I can go back and work on the left side. She's coming along ...

One Appointment After Another! from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up after Patrick, and out the door by 7:30 am. I had to go for my ultra sounds. I had one on my thyroid and the other was on my lungs. I got there and waited. While I waited I worked on my embroidery. Then after it was over, I was supposed to wait till 10:30 am for my mammogram. This was 9:15 am. They had a cancellation, so I was able to go right in for the mammogram. As much as I hate that test, I know it's needed.

After all ...
