Day 4 of BE Seminar from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up before a couple of my roomies, which really surprised me. They are usually up way before me and I'm up at 6:20 am.

I went down and had breakfast with Sandy and Jeanette. We had a good time. Funny how we seem to end up waiting on one of us to get moving - me included. They are a lot of fun to be around. We then went to class. We had a class with Mendy (can't remember her last name, will check on that).


This is my "doodle cloth" from the class ...

Packed and Ready To Go from Quilting My Way

Today was a day of getting ready to leave for my Seminar. I loaded the suit case with more stuff, then I made a list of stuff I need to take in the morning, since Sandy was coming to pick up my suit case.

I worked on my packing and worked on cleaning the house. I wanted to leave Patrick a nice clean house. When I don't, he ends up cleaning it up for me when I get back. I thought it would be better if I actually cleaned up my mess and had the house looking clean when ...

A Busy Saturday from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up early, playing games. Enjoyed time with Kitty. Then started falling asleep. Crawled up on the couch and fell asleep for another hour.

Afterwards we headed up to Costco. Got some meat and things we needed. I usually don't go very often, but this time was a good time to go. Called the folks to see if we were still going out. They called back later and said we would.

I started to get the stuff I needed together for the Seminar. I've been getting more stuff together. I just hope I get all ...

Counting Down To Seminar from Quilting My Way

Today started out busy and ended up more relaxed later on.

Kitty and I enjoyed some time before I went to help Cherrill. We had a good chat about families. She does ancestry as well. I need to get back to entering information on the family history. I have a ton that needs to be entered. I will stop my fees on ancestry for a while and try to enter more of my paper information. I really need to get moving on that again.

Sue stopped by and picked up the group quilt that I'm storing for them. It ...

Seminar Is Monday from Quilting My Way

Today I overslept....yet again. Good thing I didn't have to go to Cherrill's but when I called we ended up talking for 30 mins! I didn't get a chance to relax much this morning. I did end up being late for my meeting, but I did get a chance to enjoy a few minutes with Kitty.

I stopped off at Michaels to get some felt. I needed to get on the ball and finish up the needle case. I also stopped at Starbucks to get some Ice Tea. It was funny the gal there told me ...

Saying Goodbye To A Friend from Quilting My Way

Today I was up and moving. I actually vacuumed before noon! Usually I'm lazy and it doesn't happen till the afternoon.

I then went over to my physical therapy. Mom was supposed to come over but she didn't make it. So, I saw her on my way to and from physical therapy. I brought home her warming pad for the bed. I washed it. Then put it out on the line - because it was a sunny day - till I put it out on the line. It started raining so I had to bring it back in the ...

Falling Behind on Posting. from Quilting My Way

Today was a fast day, with me being a step behind all day. Can't you tell? I'm late on getting this posted.

I had Quilts of Valor today in Olympia. Before I could go, I had to get the quilt washed and dried. By the time it was dry, it was 9:50 am. Donna texted to make sure I was going to take the quilts in. Told her I was drying the last one to go. She told me to stop by on my way and pick up the two wall hangings she made and gave to ...

Getting Back To My Handwork from Quilting My Way

Each day I try to get at least 1 hour of handwork in. Some days are better than others. I did get a couple hours in on my "Patriotic Angel" while watching "Murder on the Orient Express." It was a good movie! I really enjoyed that and was able to get a few more stitches in.

I went down to check to see if I had the Braizilian Embroidery 101 book. I will be doing that project at Seminar in about a week. I'm looking forward to learning a few more stitches. I really do want to learn more ...

Finally Back from Cruise from Quilting My Way

We are BACK! It was an awesome time! I actually worked on my cross stitch piece.


This was the cruise ship we were on up till Sunday morning. We stayed in Galveston TX till Monday. This is "Liberty of the Seas" under Royal Caribbean.

We arrived the day before we were to leave. Our flight there was delayed and we ended up going to Denver instead of San Francisco.  We then went from Denver to Houston. The shuttle took us from the Airport to the hotel. It took us 2 hours to get to our Hotel.....which put us at ...

Recovering mode and needlework from Susan P Blog

Two weeks after my surgery and I feel so good. I am now at the stage where I have to stop myself from doing things, as I feel so well. It makes me feel guilty not to clean the house and help with the painting, but although the external wounds are healed I have to be conscious of what is going on internally and make sure I give that enough time to heal properly too. So I am still focussing on needlework and resting for the rest of this week

I haven’t work on the Neverending sampler for quite ...

Trying to Decide....What Next from Quilting My Way

I went through a stack of magazines that I have downstairs. They are from the 1990's and I wanted to look for wedding announcements and baby announcements. The more I looked the less I saw of what I wanted.

But I did find.....


 A beautiful memorial for a Vet. I am going to do this, not sure who I'll put in he memorial part but have an idea.


This is my wonderful stack of magazines. Trust me, I have more! This was a small amount. So, I went through these and called it good. Wasn't wanting to ...

Projects That I had Framed from Quilting My Way

This is a short part of all the projects I had framed over the last month.


This was a class I took. It is Hungarian embroidery and they are Happy and Sad. I'm not sure which is which but I'll mark them on the back when I go down and get the information on when I finished the pieces.


This is the piece I finished 2015. I will try and remember to put the information down before I post this page. I loved this. Patrick original wanted green for the top matt. I went and had it changed ...

Getting Ready and Walking in Circles from Quilting My Way

This morning I was over at Cherrills helping her with genealogy. I spent two hours on genealogy. It was so much fun! She's learning how to find the information - yet she has written a few books on her family. She's working on another line of her family. We both have Taylor's in our lines. We haven't connected them yet.

Came home and worked on the quilt. I finished putting the label on and washed it. I need to take a photo of it and will do that tomorrow.

While that was washing, I was walking around ...

Working on My HAED Piece from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up early because Phil was coming to stop by on his way to work. I had an awesome visit with him. He's looking good. I do miss him! He gave me a table cloth for Mother's Day. I'm going to put it on the table Friday. We had a good visit and then he had to leave to head to work.

I went out to get Kitty out of the garage. I opened the door to find two cats and not one cat in the garage. Shock! That cat was laying close to ...

An Interesting Day of Hardanger from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and ready to go. I went over to Cherrills to help her out and then came on back home.

I went downstairs and went through my magazines.


I wanted to find something for a baby and also a wedding announcement piece. I figure if Dan is getting married I could do an announcement and my great niece is almost a year old.


I then marked my piece of fabric for the "Hope" cross stitch that I'm taking with me.


While I was watching the flosstube stuff, I saw we had a #4 part to ...

Hello Saturday! from Quilting My Way

This Saturday started out like all the others. We went to the casino - didn't last long and then headed over to the VF store. I picked out some shorts. I needed another pair of shorts to take with me on the cruise. Next stop was the grocery store. Needed to figure out what we wanted for supper.

Came home and enjoyed a few shows.


My magnifying glass arrived in the mail. It's bigger than I expected. But it should work on my new frames. It doesn't work on the frames I'm using now, because it's ...

Another Day Gone By from Quilting My Way

This morning I enjoyed having it to myself and Miss Kitty. She couldn't let me sit and work on anything at times because she wanted my attention or wanted to play. I have a few claw marks from her thinking she could move my arms.



I then took my two neighbors out to lunch. We all went to a lunch cafe. I had a shrimp salad that was really good. One had a Ruben sandwich and the other had soup and salad. We chatted for a good hour while we enjoyed each other's company. I will miss Ruth ...
