Spent The Morning With Dian from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up with Patrick. He asked me to do a casserole like the one I did the other day. I had most of it together, and just needed to add the other stuff. So, I pulled it out of the refrigerator, then I added the corn and frozen tatter tots. I had it all set for him. All he had to do was cook it at work.

Headed to Staples for the last gift for Patrick.

Then I enjoyed about an hour getting ready to leave. I got moms gifts from Katt as well as the other ...

Don't Know What's Up With Me from Quilting My Way

Today I shocked myself by sleeping in till 9:30 am. I rarely ever do that!! Then I got up, and couldn't get moving. I was still tired, maybe from sleeping so long.

When I finally got moving, I put a load of laundry in. Then I turned the TV on. I played for awhile and then I was up and moving around. Couldn't seem to figure out what I wanted to do.

Then by 3 pm, I was settled down and working on my cross stitch.


The good news is, I finished the bottom section. I'm ...

A Day Of Reflecting from Quilting My Way

Today I was up and getting moving. I started the laundry and then I mopped the kitchen floor. Sophie was following me. I know Patrick vacuumed yesterday before he decorated...that's what he does.

I was working on my booklets today. I wanted to get them updated. I have 3 booklets that I found are outdated. I do "dairies" of my quilts and QOV. I couldn't believe I was 2 years out dated. But then the way I've been going, it was normal for me. 2 of the books were QOV related. One was on my dad ...

A Full Day Of Bowling from Quilting My Way

This morning I needed to get the casserole in the oven to take to our Christmas party with our Travel League. I arrived around 10:30 am not realizing I needed to be there sooner. For some reason I thought we were bowling 11:30 am or that it wouldn't take that long to get there. Guess I was wrong on both accounts. When I arrived everyone was pretty much there. I added the food to the table, and gave out my gifts to everyone on our team. I also gave a gift to Jahn, as she has been ...

Went To A Play At Evergreen Playhouse from Quilting My Way

Today started out like most days. Patrick was enjoying sleeping in, and I was playing my games.

After he got up, I sent him shopping for a few things since I needed supplies for the casserole I'm doing tomorrow. While he was off doing that, I was heating some nuts and chocolate in a crockpot. It took about an hour to melt, and then another 15 mins after I stirred it. The next thing was scooping them out on wax paper to cool. I made about 75 chocolate clusters. They taste really good too. But they do take a ...

Another Day To Myself from Quilting My Way

As I type this, I'm wondering if I did my blog last night. I'm thinking I didn't.

I had today and yesterday to myself. I guess you I look back at yesterday and today, I really didn't do much.

I did work on my Christmas cards. I have written in the ones I'm sending. I still have a few more to go, but I'll get these out while I can. Patrick will do his tomorrow.

I did go see how Cherry was doing. She's doing good. I've just missed not going over ...

A Really Busy Day from Quilting My Way

First thing this morning I was out the door and off to my physical therapy. Good news is I don't have to go back.

Then it was off to moms, where I took care of her mail. We talked on the phone and before I knew it, I was out the door yet again.

As I was on my way to our QOV meeting, I received a call. The gal said it was 10:30 am and no one was there for the meeting. I told her I was 2 minutes out and would be there. There were 3 ...

Oops, Missed Yesterday....... from Quilting My Way

Okay, I missed yesterday. So, I guess I better get moving on what happened the last two days.

I started yesterday by going to our Brazilian embroidery meeting. We all had a good time. Chatting as usual. I was working on my rose piece.


I'm working on the petal that is over the work. It took me FOREVER to get the bullion to work. First it was too long, then it was took tight...you get the picture.

After that I went to Dian's to help her mail out her two summer spreads she sold to the same ...

Gift Wrapping Today from Quilting My Way

This morning I enjoyed an hour or two of peace and quiet. The Patrick woke up. lol

We then pulled out the gifts. We bought wrapping paper at Costco along with a few gifts. That means Patrick wanted to have them all wrapped and ready to go. Not sure what the hurry was, since we are not having a tree. With Sophie only about 3 years old and wild, it wouldn't be too smart to have a tree up. She'd be in and around it, like no ones business. We wanted to get dad and Katt's gifts ...

A Day Of Shopping Before Quilting from Quilting My Way

Today was a day of shopping. Both for groceries and Christmas. We did get a few things done as far as Christmas.

We headed to Costco first. We saw a few people we know. It was funny. Seems like I run into people at Costco that live down here. It's really funny. I hardly ever see anyone and when I go to Costco, there they are.

We then stopped at Safeway and got what we needed. Came home and got everything put away. Then it was 3:30 pm! Patrick fell asleep in the chair, so we didn't ...

Friday....What Is There To Say.......... from Quilting My Way

As I sit here, I can't come up with what today was. I usually have a good idea of what I'm going to say for the day....Nope, not today.

So, I'll work on what today was like......me being lazy till around around 11 am. Then I got moving....not saying much for me.

I took the two quilts to Ethel. She is going to do the bindings on the two quilts. Once I get them back, I will wash them and take a photo before taking them to the museum to wait till they are ...

Off And Running from Quilting My Way

Today was another one of those days - don't PLAN!!

I was off to moms house to be there for  the maid. I arrived early and went to get mail. Sherry arrived and I thought she would be only about an hour or two. So, I called mom and did a few things for her while she was on the phone. After that, I played some of her games on pogo. Then I looked at my watch and two hours has already gone. I needed to go to Sharon's to get my quilts! I didn't think I would ...

It's Saturday...Still No Shopping ....But A Movie from Quilting My Way

I was up and enjoying my games. Patrick stated we would be going to the movies around 11 am.

We headed out and stopped at Patrick's work to check on things. Then we went to the movies. Our movie was "Reckit Ralph goes Internet" and I really enjoyed that movie. It was a little better than the first one. I really did like the way it went.

After the movies, we headed to moms to clean out her deck. Patrick put the dead plants and pots in the back of the truck. I got her mail and cleaned out ...

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! from Quilting My Way

To all my friends and family HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Even if I don't know you, I wish you a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Today was the first Thanksgiving Patrick and I were alone. At second thought, it may be the second one. I think the first Thanksgiving alone we went to the casino for supper. I remember thinking it would have been better to have our turkey at home, for left overs. Now, I know what it's like with all the left overs. We have tons!

We cooked all the fixings. I got up early to do the stuffing because I ...

The Day Before Thanksgiving from Quilting My Way

This morning I had therapy again. So, that was at 9:30 am. I was out the door early. After therapy, I went over to moms. I checked to make sure she had her ipad and phone in her bag. She didn't, so I had her put them in. I didn't want to have to send them to her. lol

I took off to Phillips afterward. From there I headed to Safeway....wow! NO parking, it was that busy. So, I parked over by the dentists office. It was okay, I needed the walk. All I needed was ...

Thursday - What Can I Say....What A Day! from Quilting My Way

This morning I was out the door about 5 mins after Patrick. I was at the therapists at 8 am. Much too early for my liking. The gal wanted me to show up at 7 am and I looked at her and asked if she was crazy! lol

Then I was off to my massage therapist and had a good neck message. Before I went there, I had a good hour and a half before my appointment. So, I was glad that I brought my embroidery. First I went to McDonald's to get breakfast (sausage bisquit and chocolate milk ...

One Of These Days.......... from Quilting My Way

One of these days, I'll be back to normal. That is, if I knew what normal was. I keep hoping things will slow down, but if it did, what would I do?! I've been on "full steam ahead" for awhile!

Today I had about an hour to myself before leaving. I called Faye and told her the exciting news about how QOV finding out about our article. I filled her in on what has been coming up with QOV.

Once I was off the phone, I headed out the door. Went to Safeway (for mom) and  the post ...

A Little Behind On Yesterday And Today from Quilting My Way

Well, I'm falling behind. On almost everything! Yesterday I spent the whole day working on the QOV quilt top that I wanted to take with the other two quilts to be quilted.

Yep, I was sewing all day long. I started around noon yesterday and didn't get done till about 11 pm. So, if anyone tells you you can get a quilt done in a day - tell them they are crazy! The only way to do that would be to have everything cut and ready to go, and even then, chances are it wouldn't happen. I can ...
