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

Today turned out to be a good day. I was able to get laundry done and work on a few things as well. 


I was able to get a lot of beading done as well. 


My bird is getting done and another bird will be starting soon on the hat. I'm looking forward to see that bird come in. 

Then I was able to watch TV and get some stuff done on my cross stitching. 


I was able to get a lot done on this piece. I do like the way this is coming along. 

It was more of ...

Running Around Town Today from Quilting My Way

This morning I was busy working on getting the deposit done for our water group. Then I was working on paying a couple bills. After that I wanted to leave and go around and do with I needed to get done today. Patrick wanted to go along and didn't want to leave right away. So, I gave him an hour. While he was working on the siding, I was beading. 


Then he came in and decided it was time to go. I got moving. Our first stop was the bank, then Phil's to get some package to mail ...

Random Videos & Thoughts from Where Art & Life Meet

Have you seen this before? Amazing!! Another gem sent to me by my mother. All I kept thinking as I watched this was, “NOOOO! It’s too beautiful to cut into!” While at the same time fascinated and eagerly awaiting the next cake to see what was inside. Creativity knows no bounds. Then there’s this, which… Continue reading Random Videos & Thoughts

Kept Going All Day Long from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up at 7 am. I couldn't sleep at all last night. Patrick was having some trouble sleeping too. Maybe because it was so hot last night. I wanted to take a shower at 6:30 am but Patrick didn't like that idea, so went back to bed to see if I could try and sleep again.

After I showered, I went out and picked blueberries. Will probably give them to Phil. It also was a good day to put sheets out on the line. I was able to get a couple laundry loads done ...

The Day Started Out Good from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and playing games. Then Patrick asked if I wanted to go out for a bike ride. I told him I would rather walk then bike ride or just go for a ride. So, we headed up to Olympia to walk around the Capitol Lake area.


Got this photo half way around the walking area. We walked around the lake and it was 1.5 miles. It took up about 45 mins. We didn't walk very fast.


There were a lot of ducks and geese in the lake.

Came back at home by 1:30 ...

The Days Are Getting Hotter from Quilting My Way

This morning was the one day a week we can't use the computer, tablet or web. The only thing I can used the computer for is blogging or important email.

So, my day started out with working on my beading and getting some laundry going.


I was able to get another 5 rows in. I'm now at 64/580 done. I love the way the bird is starting to show. The hat is coming through. What fun!!

In between beading, we went to moms and dropped off some strawberries and cake. After dropping those off, we went to ...

Can't Seem To Keep The Day's Right from Quilting My Way

This morning I enjoyed sleeping in. I really didn't want to get up, but I made myself get moving. Patrick stayed in bed another hour. 


I got moving on playing a few games. It helps me get moving sometimes. Then I got started getting the laundry going and then unloaded the dishwasher. I always hate it when Patrick opens the dishwasher and doesn't tell me about it. At least this time I figured it out before dirty dishes went in with the clean ones. 

It was time to enjoy beading again. 


I'm getting more stuff coming up ...

Getting Old! LOL from Quilting My Way

This morning I had to be up at 7:15 am. All because I have to take 2 pills with 30 mins between them and 30 minutes after before I can eat. Not my favorite way to start the day.

I was on my way to the dentist by 8:35 am. They cleaned my teeth and took photos. Not my favorite thing to do first thing in the morning but I like getting it over with. We no longer have insurance which means we pay cash and get a 15% discount. They cleaned my teeth so well, that I ...

Picking Berries and Beading from Quilting My Way

This morning I wasn't feeling all that great - still not. But I wasn't going to let that stop me. It did stop me from eating - not a bad thing there!

I was going to sit and bead, but realized I had a few things to do first. Laundry was needed to be done, so in went the laundry. Then I headed outside to pick blueberries. Patrick left for the dentist and I was outside picking berries. I was still picking them when he got back - over an hour later.


I was able to get 2 gallon bags filled ...

A Day Of Beading from Quilting My Way

This morning I was ready for Faye to pick up the batting and backing. I also cut her some labels. I need to cut more for Ethel. She arrived around 10 am. We chatted for awhile. Patrick was washing the car as we chatted. It was good to see her again.

Sharon had called when I was cutting the labels, so I told her I'd call her back in 10 mins. Then I called her back just as Faye was driving up, so told her I would call back after she leaves. Once all that was done, I called ...

Love, Sewing Nests & Impatience from Where Art & Life Meet

I bet you can’t guess who sent this to me… If you guessed my mother, then you’d be correct. She alternates between, humor and heartwarming. But either way they all represent humans and/or animals creatively living their lives. I appreciate all of them. And then there’s this one, NOT sent by my mother, but she… Continue reading Love, Sewing Nests & Impatience

Sh*t my Mother Sends Me from Where Art & Life Meet

In keeping with the sh*t-my-mother-sends-me theme since this pandemic hit all of us broadside, forcing us to become bit players in a sci-fi film we didn’t know was in production, here’s the latest from my mother. Thanks Mom! ❤️ (Don’t know what I’d do without this woman…) Can we all just marvel at the sheer… Continue reading Sh*t my Mother Sends Me

It Seems To Be A Broken Record from Quilting My Way

Actually, "this" seems to be a broken record. Life is so boring with the Corona-virus. We can't go anywhere or if we do, we have to wear a mask. We don't talk about going anywhere because there isn't anywhere to go. Bowling isn't going to start up again at this rate. It's really getting to be hard to want to do anything because of the way life is now.

So, today wasn't much different. I did make a pie. Then I st and beaded.


I ended up taking out row 15 - after I continued ...

Not So Boring Today from Quilting My Way

This morning I was getting laundry going. With the new machines, I found that I actually like doing laundry now. Wonder how long that will last!

I went out to do so berry picking. I picked the blueberries out in the yard. It took a good hour or more to get them all picked. In another day I will probably have the same amount to pick. I got a big bucket full of blueberries. When I was done, I decided I wanted to have a smoothie. I took out the frozen blueberries, raspberries, watermelon, with some cranberry juice. I made ...

Pandemic & Creativity in NYC from Where Art & Life Meet

There’s something lovely about all the restaurants who are taking outdoor seating to a whole new level. While indoor dining is prohibited, New York City is allowing restaurants to take over the sidewalks and even spill out into the streets, many are taking advantage of this by decorating huge planters with flowering vines, stringing up… Continue reading Pandemic & Creativity in NYC

Back To Working On Projects from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and realized it was Sunday - the day we don't use the computer or any electronics. Not my favorite day!

I was walking the floors! I got laundry going....pacing the floor.....watching the laundry.....trying to decide what I wanted to do. Oh, yeah, Patrick wanted to go to the movies - $5 weekend - for something to do. So, I had 2 hours to "kill." I walked the floors, kept trying to wish the laundry would be done faster - even though it's faster than the old one. Texted Phil to let him know I ...

One Of Those Busy Days from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and was hoping to have some time to myself, but it didn't last long. I did get 2 more listing of my EdMar floss on eBay.

I listed 4 things from last night to today. Batch 1, Batch 2, Batch 3, and Batch 4. I still have more to post, but I want to get these sold first. I have quiet a bit of floss left over from the batch I bought at the shop. If I do pretty good then I can get some of the money back to the group. We spent ...

I Do Believe I'm Becoming A Broken Record! from Quilting My Way

Best laid plans - that's my broken record.

Today started out waiting for my new washer and dryer to arrive. I went downstairs to get the backing and batting cut for Debbie. I also cut some blocks for mom to do stars on.  I contacted Debbie to let her know it was ready. She arrived around the same time as our washer and dryer. The washer went in pretty good. After all the trouble Patrick had yesterday, it made things easier. To a point.....

He then got to work on the dryer....cussing...and worked on it.....cussing....and worked ...

Life Had Other Plans from Quilting My Way

I guess I could have said, Patrick had other plans. Either way, it didn't work in my direction.

We were up and out the door to pick up Phil's order at Home Depot along with buying paint. After all that we went to Walmart - not my favorite place! We picked up a few things including a phone for the landline.

Came home and hooked up the phones. Then I worked on my watch. I had to get the instruction on line. Go Figure!! I had to ask "live chat" where to find them. That took a good 10 ...

Shopping and Beading from Quilting My Way

This morning we were out the door by 9 am. We headed to moms to head up to Olympia.

After picking mom up, we headed to Olympia and went to our favorite appliance center. We picked up a washer and dryer. It was amazing how quick it was to pick and purchase. We'll get them on Tuesday. Headed over to Sharon's to pick up 2 quilts for Debbie and the backing material. She showed me her beading! I loved the ornament she was working on. I will need to get the pattern! It's really pretty.

Then we ...
