I honestly did not think I would get all 7 WTIL tops quilted in a week's time-- knowing me, that seemed a bit overly ambitious. BUT, I'm "done" As my husband says, "you are never done, Linda. You just start on another one. " True, that. I just ended quilting in the chevron shape in the ditch on this one I first showed you on 5/21.
I should be getting ready to go to the quilt guild meeting in a bit but am a little ambivalent about going. I want to mainly because I have things to deliver to some of the Belles who are also members--not the most compelling of reasons. I don't want to go sit through the meeting itself. Does that make any sense? This seems more like a "bathrobe day" to me. It's dark, looks like it might rain and I could oh, so easily crawl back into bed since I have been waking up far too early for the time that I get to sleep.
The road crew seems to be finished with the bulk of the re-paving project though the outside of the lanes need to be striped. Access in and out of our lane was a little problematic Tuesday since the flagmen were parked right at the end of our lot in effect. It is a lot quieter now that the heavy equipment is not out there working.
I opened the kitchen blinds for Pippi's microwave viewing yesterday afternoon to discover some of the gardenias had popped open. Right on schedule. DJ said he had not seen a single one when he had watered it earlier in the day. This morning I see probably double the amount of blooms. It smells heavenly!
Of course Pippi thinks everytime that I go out in the utility room in her presence that she is going to get something. Her Petromalt, catnip and cat food are out there so sometimes she does. I came back in from taking the flower picture and this is what awaited me. What pet owner is not familiar with the "expectant" look or the "stare job" She just made me giggle......... As you can see she doesn't need a thing but that doesn't keep her from wanting it anyway.
Jane, I should tell you that my microwave potholder thing is just a magnetic backed hook. Some little thing I probably picked up at Walmart. Works great and I guess I have always kept my hanging potholders there no matter where I have lived. There is one on the side of the refrigerator to hold the spare keys as well.
I believe I have talked myself into staying home today. Take a day off from sewing and tackle some paperwork that has been postponed in favor of quilting. But first, I'm climbing back in bed for just a little bit--because I CAN.
