One Thing Leads To Another from Quilting My Way

Life is pretty much one thing to another but today it seemed to go that way.

This morning Faye and I went to Grace Church in Chehalis to ask for help in quilting quilts for us. It was interesting and Faye was really good about explaining everything. I love having her around because she keeps me on track. We agreed to provide everything including the threads. It's a trial basis for us to see if things work out. I'm hoping they do. Afterwards I needed to mail labels to Barbara who lives in Rochester.

Came back home and ...

A Planned Day That Didn't Happen from Quilting My Way

Here I go again! I planned a day.....still haven't learned....and here I am again with a day that wasn't gonna happen.

I was up early but that didn't mean anything. Cherry called to tell me about her trip to the emergency room yesterday - a 9 hour wait! It was interesting what she had to go through. She fell and couldn't reach her son. She called the house, but I wasn't home. I told her she needs to call my cell phone next time. After a long wait she got her son. That call ...

Organizing My Day Away From Home from Quilting My Way

It seems like lately I'm away from home more often then not. Not like I want to be, but it just happens that way I guess. Life is what we make of it. So, it really didn't bother me.

It all started with getting up and getting out the door. I left a few minutes early so I could stop at McD's and get a sausage bisquet (sp). I was hunger for one and I had a good feeling I wouldn't be getting lunch today. Well.....that didn't work out the way I wanted. I ...

It's Friday - Again! from Quilting My Way

Okay it's Friday....as I said, Again. We run around in circles, and the circle is Friday.

I was enjoying a good sleep in. I didn't even go to moms for quilting. I really needed to spend the day to myself today. Patrick was working...which gave me that free day. He did come home early but not enough to mess up my day.

I decided I wanted to get laundry done. It's a week worth of laundry. It feels good to get all but one load done. It was a good day for cleaning the house ...

Yesterday - What A Day! from Quilting My Way

Patrick and I were up early - and out the door by 7:45 am. We headed up to Tacoma.....it was one of those travel days. First he missed the City Center exit, and we ended up taking the water front exit. That was good, till the exit we needed was closed because they were cleaning the overpass. We ended up taking a drive along the waterfront. Then turned around and headed back, which took us up the hill to the hospital area. We still arrived at Kaiser about 30 mins early. The turn in to Kaiser also blocked, so ...

What Should I Do Today? from Adele Mogavero

I’ve googled a lot of topics including ones like “what should Del do today?.” (Just so you know, nothing comes of that – and if it did? I’d be runnin’ in the other direction) Google won’t tell you what to do today.  You can’t ask Google to solve your life ....

The post What Should I Do Today? appeared first on Adele Mogavero.

This Week Out Does Last Week from Quilting My Way

This morning I was out the door by 9:30 am. I ended up turning around and coming back because is was garbage and recycling day. I missed the garbage pick up but did get the recycling out there. Patrick got his weeks mixed up and didn't think it was this week. Then I was back on the road to pick up Dan.

We made it just in time for his appointment, then I was off to my appointment. I was done in a good amount of time. We talked a lot about my family. I'm learning to ...

It's A Roller Coaster from Quilting My Way

As I sit here trying to think of what to write, I realized life is like a roller coaster. We go around in a circle - Monday to Sunday and all over again. And I'm on the top of the wheel going to the bottom of the wheel....

I was up early today, but I felt like I should have stayed in bed. Go figure.

We went to Safeway this morning and to my surprise we really didn't need a lot. We were in and out in a short time.

Got home and I worked on my beads. I ...

A Day Of My Choosing from Quilting My Way

Today is one of those days that I don't have a schedule and I don't need to do anything for anyone but myself. So, it's a day of my choosing. Whether I choose right or wrong, it's all up to me.....ouch.

So I started the day off with playing game - nothing new there. Then I got up and mopped the floor. While I waited for it to dry, I took a little time beading. Felt good. I was able to get another row in before I put everything back in place and started to vacuum ...

The Week Is Almost Over.... from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up a lot earlier than I thought I would be. I needed to leave around 9:30 am to pick up Dan. I called Cherry to see how she was doing. She doesn't have a broken bone in her hand but she did sprain it. So, she's in a lot of pain.

I got moving and mom called. She wanted me to come over on my way back. I had a list of things to do on the way back, but told her I would be there.

My day started out going to pick ...

What A Day!! from Quilting My Way

This morning I was out the door by 8:30 am. I had to meet up with Dan and then head off to my doctor appointment.......

Well, I forgot that Patrick told me to warm up the car......so I had to wait 5 mins before I could leave.....on top of that I ordered a chai tea at Starbucks and went to pick it up. By the time I was on my way, it was a quarter till 9 am. I arrived at Dan's around 9:15 am. I had my doctors appointment at 10:20 am, but ...

One Heck Of A Day from Quilting My Way

Today was one of those days that didn't stop. I was actually up earlier than I have been getting up lately....but that didn't seem to slow the day down.

I started out with calling Cherry and planning on walking later, since it was very cold this morning and looked like it might rain. So, I went into the computer room and worked on the certificates for Wednesday's honorees. I also got my list up graded. I checked on everything we needed. Then I got side tracked with family history. I worked on that while I was ...

Enjoying My Beading..... from Quilting My Way

As much as I would love to say I put the labels on 3 quilts and bound another QOV quilt, I won't say that. I didn't do that. I know I need to do that, but I didn't do that.

Instead I spent a good portion of my day beading. I listened to a podcast for the first time today. It was called "Armchair" something and I found I enjoyed it. It was 2 friends talking to each other - celebrities. I like to see what type of people are in show business. I found a couple that ...

A Day Of Waiting.... from Quilting My Way

This morning was running around to make sure I had everything I needed to leave.

I started out with going to the bank, then headed over to get Dan. He was staying at a friends for Dungeons and Dragons game. I picked him up early, then we headed to the doctors office. We were actually 30 mins early. At least there was a nice Aunt and niece there to talk to. That helped pass the time a little. We ended up waiting an hour (from his appointment time) till he got in. It was another 45 min wait while he ...

Trying To Get To Line 100! from Quilting My Way

This morning I woke with a headache. Never like getting up with a headache.

Played a few games, then had some pains, so told Patrick to keep an eye on me, because I wasn't feeling the best of myself.

So, I sat down at the table and worked on my beading.


I was able to get another 5 rows on here. That puts me to row 98 - 97/446. I'm really trying to get 100 rows done. I think it will be close to where the bird starts to finish off. I like the way the bird is ...

How To Be Creative In Life from Pippa Patchwork

When we think of being creative, the first thing comes to mind is doing something in your own hands that come from an idea formed in the mind or simply put being an artist.

Creativity can be applied with the things you do whether it be for a job or just your everyday life. To develop it, here are some ways to do it:

1. Relax and Enjoy

No matter what stress you have experienced, remember to ...

Time For Brazilian Emboridery from Quilting My Way

It was an interesting morning. I was all ready to go to our meeting......but NO, I wasn't!

I headed out right a 10 am. Had to deposit some money, then go to the Library to drop off the CD audio, with a stop at McD's for ice tea. Once all that was done, I was on to our meeting.

I seem to find other things to do at the shop instead of working on my projects. I did get some work done, but at the same time I found some fabric for my friends Birthday. I think ...

The Undermining of “Craft” from Where Art & Life Meet

“Crafts” have occupied a large part of my life. I was fifteen years old when I knitted my first sweater.  My mother taught me to knit when I was so young my fingers had trouble wrapping the yarn around them.  I didn’t realize it then, but being left-handed certainly must have made it more difficult… Continue reading The Undermining of “Craft”

One Thing To Another from Quilting My Way

Today I enjoyed some time to myself. Patrick woke and went downstairs to check on Dan. He decided he was going to leave today. So, we were waiting on him to decide when he was ready to go. I will miss him....actually I miss him already.

We drove Dan home, then stopped at Bill and Sharon's to drop off 2 more quilts and pick one up. I now have one to bind. I just realized I need to pick up the 2 from Dian to get those bond as well.

Our next stop was Costco. The lady there ...
