The leaning tree is still leaning from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

 OH my -- I see you are all putting me to the test with comments! I'll be answering them very soon! 

I found something that might help with the legs of that quilting table, and while the table has adjustable legs, I NEED much more than I can get from those adjustments. More on that another day!

You see, there was a reason that I had to get that Platinum 160 together. I had a visitor yesterday who came to rent the machine. And YES -- it needed to be up! I spent about 15 minutes explaining the machine to her ...

My BLUE shoes from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

We all have them -- those lazy days! I had one yesterday. I had a chat with my boss, then I had an errand, and it was much later than planned by the time I got home. So I wasn't motivated to work on quilts, but I did get one quilted. This is number EIGHT!

Quilt for Quilts of Valour - DONE


That leaves THREE more to do for this grouping of 11 eleven quilts, an incentive set out by the Quilts of Valour group. I got the binding on this one as well. It would appear that I did NOT ...

More of the same! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

OK -- so I've developed a routine, and it's pretty boring! But have you ever noticed how much of your life is routine? And routine is good -- it allows your brain to focus on other things; otherwise, we would be exhausted making decisions all day long! 

Things happened, although it was a "fairly" routine day. The first excitement of the day that resulted in my good deed was when I walked Murphy. I saw a vehicle back out of the driveway (I was practically beside the car, but it was NOT ever a danger to me). But they backed ...

And the clean up continues! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

It happened. I've become obsessed with these darn quilts, and I can't stop working on them. I have a goal, and nothing else will get done until that goal is met. Why couldn't I be like this before and with everything I touched? What makes me very happy is that there is no deadline, no need to get them done, yet I'm motivating myself to keep working at them. I'm afraid of being unmotivated one day because something doesn't have to be done! 

Yeah -- it's all good, and I WILL get caught up ...

Best dressed from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

 OH -- Patti sent me the "story" behind the saying, "don't look a gift horse in the mouth" I love it. Here it is in her words if you don't know it. 


In the olden days, when you were buying a horse from someone, you checked the condition of the horse’s teeth and gums – no teeth, not healthy, bad purchase.  However if someone was gifting you a horse, it was considered poor etiquette to check the healthiness of the horse (by looking him in the mouth) prior to accepting the “gift”.


AHA -- that makes perfect sense. Thanks, Patti ...

The old and the new from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

 

Wow -- it was like Grand Central Station at my house yesterday. People picked up quilts, pet mats, the cabinet, UPS stopped by to pick up a package, and I had a drop off as well - door to door delivery from a quilt shop! But not by the quilt shop - the package was pony expressed by a friend. It was crazy, and I was hoping that no one picked up the wrong thing. But all is well. 


The little cabinet? It's already has a new home and a new purpose. I love that someone found a use for it right ...

I stand corrected from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Ooops -- I made a mistake! Remember I showed you the label on my orange tray? Well, Colin + Justin are still alive!   I was thinking of Steven and Chris (and it was Chris who died). Oh boy - thank goodness, I have you all to keep me on track! Thanks, Pauline!!!


My orange tray


And I knew Katheleen would not disappoint. I got suggestions on what to do with those transparencies. So I'm keeping them. I knew she would have a purpose. I can sew through them and use them for pockets in journals. How clever!!!

The transparencies are saved


Do ...
