Finished The Top from Quilting My Way

This morning I actually slept in. Partly because I couldn't sleep last night. Even when I tried to go to sleep at midnight. UGH

I went walking with Cherry after getting up. I also got coffee going for Dan. Before I left, I gave him the coffee and then when I got back gave him the left over pizza.

Then I headed downstairs to get to work on my quilt top. I HATE having to cut the boarders in half. I ended up having to do that on both boarders. I wish people who make patterns would be so ...

Almost Done With Mystery Quilt from Quilting My Way

Today I was up and walking with Cherry. I needed to get some walking in.

I'm still helping Dan out, and the good news is that he wants to wait another day before going home. I told him he has no limit to being here and if we needed to pick up stuff for him we would. I kept going down and putting the ice pack on his leg.

I then went downstairs, and got back to working on the quilt. I did have a few calls in-between but I was able to get a lot done.


I worked ...

Catching Up Part 3 from Quilting My Way

Okay, the good news is that today I'm finally caught up with my blogging. I need to be paying more attention to getting my blogging done. lol

It was one busy day. I was up, making breakfast for Dan and I. Then cleaning up the mess, unloading the dishwasher.

I played a few games, but every 20 to 30 mins I was going down and putting or taking off his ice pack. He's leg is looking really good.

I did get a chance to go and work on the quilt for QOV. I didn't get a lot ...

Another Day Of Stitching from Quilting My Way

Today I started out with getting up and then going back to sleep on the couch.

Once I finally got up - I went downstairs in hope of getting the top done.....yeah right. Yesterday was the day when everything went perfectly.....today....not so much!


As I was getting started, Sophie decided she wanted to check everything out.

I got started, and I felt good about sewing.....then I measured the blocks I finished, it didn't come out right, I was on the short side. Not enough to redo it all, but that ticked me off. Then I got ...

A Day Of Stitching And Quilting! from Quilting My Way

This morning started out pretty good. Once I got going, I went downstairs.

I kept thinking of the Mystery Quilt for QOV. There was a message in my email, saying that there would be a contest. It's a voting contest on the Mystery Quilt. So, I decided, "Oh, heck, that would be fun." Not like me, but I thought I would try. I have till the 15th to get the photo sent to them. So.....I went downstairs, picked out the colors, and got started.


This is the pattern, and I'm looking forward to working on this. I ...

Quilting With Mom Day from Quilting My Way

This morning I was able to sleep in - but didn't. I was up and getting laundry done. I knew mom would be here after her appointment. So, I went downstairs and clean up a little.


I laid out the blocks that Georgie game me a while back. This is what I decided on.


Had them all laid out and then Sophie came to mess up the one in the right top corner. She was going under it.


Then I turned around and found this!! She threw the blocks all over the place! Under my sewing table, even.


While I ...

Another Busy Day With Quilting And Friends from Quilting My Way

This morning I was out the door early. Needed to go to the store for mom - she needed some milk. Then dropped off my audio book that I had from the Library.

I arrived at moms to find only 2 other quilters there. Later Nancy and Theresa came. Nancy left early and so did the other new gal. So, it was just 4 of us having lunch.

I worked on the QOV binding.


Of course, I couldn't get a photo without Sophie getting in there. She wanted to check out what I'm doing. Then once she was happy ...

A Quiet Day from Quilting My Way

Since I had no plans today, I actually stayed in bed till about 9 am. I just couldn't seem to get up. I often wonder if it's because I'm staying up later, or if I'm going through depression. I'm not wanting to go that direction again. I am finding that I'm not as into playing games as I was. That could be a good sign. 


I got laundry going. I washed sheets and towels and put them out on the line. It is always nice to have them hanging on the line. Smells good ...

Part Of The Day With Mom from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and going through all the things I needed to do. I started out my lists of what I needed to do.


While I was downstairs getting stuff together for Sandy and Georgie, I played with the design for this panel. Don't look at the background because that will probably be white. I'm thinking that I might go ahead and have a strip of red - like where the red is on here. The funny part is that the red on here wasn't enough on my thought. That was strips that I had extra ...

Almost Forgot To Post from Quilting My Way

This morning I made some really good cinnamon rolls.  Not what I needed but was hungry for.

Then Patrick started cutting the apples from our tree. He said it wasn't a good year for the apples.  We dehydrated some. Then I worked on making apple sauce.  We got a few containers but not many. Those went into the freezer.  We do like having some apple sauce fresh from the trees. Plus I know what I put into it.

After all that, I beaded and Patrick slept on the swing on the deck.



I am now on row 78. It ...

Another "I Wonder" Day from Quilting My Way

Today I was up early. We didn't walk this morning, so I was mopping the floor and vacuuming. Sophie wasn't too thrilled with me, she took off down the hall.

Then it was time go to lunch with Cherry. We went to Sweet Inspirations downtown. We got back at a good time.

I then tried to figure out what I wanted to do. I went downstairs and looked at my panel board.....well that didn't do me any good....couldn't make up my mind. I cleaned up the sewing area. Then I thought more......coming to ...

Visiting A Friend from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and ready to go. I didn't leave that early but I did leave around 9 am. I went to Safeway to pick up a pie for Sharon and Bill. Then I was on the road to their place.

Since they live in Olympia, it is a ways to get there. I know she likes it when I come up, but it's hard for me to find the time to go. I have so much on my plate, that I just can't seem to visit everyone that wants me to come see them ...

Another "Planned" Day from Quilting My Way

Had my list and was ready to go.

First it was off to the fair to drop off the "Veterans Memorial Museum QOV" tags that were to go on the 2 quilts I entered. Kathy grabbed me before I left and asked if I could help a gal with judging knitting. I told her I had no clue what she needed to do but I would be interested in "scribbing" for her. We worked on the first 6 items and then the gal came that was supposed to help her. I was there an hour (a lot longer than I ...

Presentation Day from Quilting My Way

Today I was up early and enjoying the day. I started out with getting everything in the car. I had a long list of stuff I needed to do today.

I went to Walmart to get photos printed for our album. Then I had to go get something to drink while I was on my way to the museum. I was a good hour and a half early. That's okay with me. I worked on getting the photos in the album and putting names to the photos. Then I got some of the stuff marked and set up for ...

One Of Those Days To Organize from Quilting My Way

Today I was up early. I got out and walked with Cherry by 9 am.

Then came back and got laundry going, then got started on QOV stuff. I got the certificates done. Before that I baked Patrick's dessert. I had to make him some dessert because he was whining that he didn't haven anything good to eat after supper or later at night.

I washed the 3 quilts, then I finished the last 2 that needed labels. They are all set to take to the museum tomorrow.


Here are a few of the quilts I put labels ...

Brazilian Embroidery Meeting...And More from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up on time. I called Cherry and she wasn't going to the meeting because of her gardeners. She is a retired school teacher and I found that she likes all her ducks in a row. She wants to make sure everything goes the way it's supposed to, so she stays home to make sure they do the job right. I can't complain, because in today's world, you almost have to keep on it.

I got things ready and out the door I went. I was there before everyone else. I chatted with ...

What A Day from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up early. Then I was getting ready to head to moms but got a call from the coordinator of WA's QOV. We chatted for over 30 mins. She's an awesome lady! I couldn't get into the program that helps me keep track of the quilts and veterans. We both have the same ideas for QOV. We both have groups that do the bright colors of quilts and don't do the darker colors.

Then it was time to leave, and I was already late. I had planned (YEA I KNOW!) to go to ...

Went To See Mom Today from Quilting My Way

It was one of those days. Mom was wanting me to show up because she thought I was mad at her. I wasn't, I'm just busy and she has a hard time with that.

I left and went to the Library to drop of some donations as well as one of the CD audio books that I finished. I'm going to try and finish another one so I can drop it off tomorrow. I think the other CD that was on hold was at the Centralia library, so they are transferring it to Chehalis. I really want ...

Feels Good To Be Home from Quilting My Way

This morning we took Katt out for breakfast. Then we came back to pick up our stuff and head home. It was a long drive - 7 hours. We listened to the CD audio book. This time we were able to hear more. Trouble was, when the car got hot or the console got hot then the CD player would quiet working and say "No CD" which meant we had to figure out a way to get the CD out of the player. We did. What a pain!

We stopped in Grangeview and got something to eat. Then we drove to ...

One Long Circle Of Stuff And Quilting from Quilting My Way

This morning was our quilt group meeting at the shop. I needed to go all over before I got there though.

First on my list was going to Rite Aid to get a thumb wrist band. I had a little trouble finding one but I did. My thumb is in pain because of bowling the last two weeks. My new bowl has been a problem for me. Next on my list was the library. I dropped off the 2 CD books that I finished - actually one of them was scratched and I asked them to put that on hold for ...
