YEAH ME!!!!! I made it through my Saturday :-)

Fun day but busy!!!

Julie was here for her class.... Yes I got a pic!!! SEE~~~>
She has done a great job and will be back in October to start her filler blocks.
When she left here I packed up and headed to see another Julie ~ she was having a "Close To My Heart" party. For those of you ... like me that had never heard of it ~ check it out on line!! They have SUCH COOL STUFF!!!!! Scrap booking to the max for sure!
Anyhow had a great time and then back home :-) I finished the ripping on the T-shirt quilt and started stitching the borders ~ more than half way finished with it before turning in for the night :-)
Today is hair dying, laundry, TV with Doc & finishing that quilt getting it ready for pick up on Monday! Guess I better get moving huh???

SO have a great day ~ have fun and get crafty!!

Has it really been 4 weeks??

WOW ~ time has really flown by!
Where has it gone?
What have I been doing?
work... home.....work.... home......work... home... I think I see a pattern here :-/

I really haven't done much...... I dyed my hair on Labor day (it really needs to be done again!!)
Got 2 quilts dropped off.... well 1 top ... and 43 grand mothers flower garden blocks. I need to get the blocks sewn into a top next week..... and the completed top.... well need to add sides to it so that I can straighten it up before quilting it. I really need to learn to look at quilt tops, and blocks better before agreeing to finish them for people!!! WHEN will I learn?

I did finish Violet's Elmo quilt for her birthday.... and bought my tickets for Oregon. Can you believe that Violet will be 1 in less than 6 weeks????

A friend of a friend/neighbor brought over a T-shirt quilt that she made.... it is on the H/Q now... talked to her today and promised that it would be finished by the end of the weekend. I just need about 4 hours on it and it will be ready :-)

Doc's Birthday week ~I respected his wishes and did nothing for his B.D. this year.... I really miss not having a B.D. for him :-(. I understand why he doesn't want to celebrate his birthday.... on his birthday..... but, oh well he will never change his mind on this so I will just give up. Our anniversary was just a couple days later ~ 7 years. Just another example of time flying!!

I did manage to get a teeny bit of quilting done on the Amish quilt before I had to take it off the H/Q (by the way ~ if ANYONE can come up with a good name for her...my quilting machine.... let me know!! ) I also started hand quilting the falling leaves wall hanging ~ for a few nights the first week I averaged 1 leaf a night. Then I took it downstairs for some reason.... and haven't touched it since. OOPS!

Hair cut on the 18th..... along with a card class @ Carol's .... then came home and Carol and her sister Janita came over for a "binding 101" class. Oh and I got a call from a lady that lives up in Layton this week. She wants me to drive up there and help her with HER H/Q. She has the identical set up to mine. I have scheduled her for a Saturday in Oct.

That brings us to this week...more of the work... home stuff with the addition of a dental appointment... time spent at the hospital for an ultra sound on my birthday. More work ... home stuff, and HEY IT HAS been 4 weeks! Almost forgot... now I need to have a biopsy done, will this fun NEVER END???

So tomorrow I have a class at 10 for the Snowman Quilt. I will try to get pics of Julie's quilt and post it... she is doing such a good job!! Then as soon as her class is over I need to drive out to Herriman for a Scrap book party at my bosse's house. Then back home to FINISH the T-shirt quilt!!! Then it will be Sunday and I will be doing laundry ~ and sewing the grand mothers flower garden blocks together. Oh and did I mention that it is month end at work??? SHOOT ME NOW!!!

OK off to watch another episode of MISSING with Doc ~

Have a great evening/weekend/week :-)
