Really simple little pinwheel quilt and I stippled it a lot smaller than I've ever done. I have to say, I love this one. All that's left is binding and it's a finish.
Locker hooking. Yep, tried it. Like it lots. This is about 36x24 or so. It used a lot of fabric, but was great for in the evenings with the family. I may do some more of these!
I finally got the block done for "you know who's" quilt. I know, it took me a while and while it's not anything like the masterpieces done by some very talented Prolific Quilters, I'm finally satisfied with it. Lots of love went into it, and what talent I have is there, too.
So, here's the kicker. Garry is up north dirtbiking this weekend. My daughter, Cindy has company staying with us while her family is away on a trip. That leaves me all alone. Naturally, to fill the empty void (giggle), I went to Joann's. About 40 yards of fabric followed me out to my car. I loaded it up and brought it home and folded it up nice and neat and inserted it into the already "found a home" fabric I had. Yes, I did say about 40 yards. It was on sale! Well, some of it was on sale. Some of it wasn't. And, I rearranged my sewing (living room) to include a chest of drawers. Yep, there is fabric stashed in it too. No one (you know who that is) would have been the wiser, except he called while I was in Joann's and said.... ready.... "Where are ya?" I might hide fabric, but I wouldn't outright lie to him. So I told him. He didn't say a word. Of course, he was up north.....DIRTBIKING! I'm sure I spent less than he did this weekend. Hehehehehheeeeehhheheheeee!
So, I'm off to see if I can finish something tonight. I do have to get to bed at a decent time for church service in the morning, but I don't have my usual 10:00 class, so I don't have to be there til 11. Ahhhhhhhhh......I'll sleep in an extra hour tomorrow......
Have a great weekend!

I'm a nervous wreck. Today was election day. I'm fairly sure I got at least two votes. Mine and my husbands. Other than those...I don't have a clue. I didn't think I'd be this ... uhmmmm....nervous about it. It's scary putting myself out there this way. I have never "run" for anything. Nothing in my school years. I am the Treasurer of our Chamber of Commerce, but I didn't run for that position. It was hoisted upon me....giggle! Ok....When I hear the results, I'll just edit this post.
Edit: I did not win the election. I'm ok with it. I did get enough votes to hold my head up high, so that's cool. It was a great learning experience for me. I'll have a run at it again in four years, if I'm not ruling some country, starring on broadway, or having found fame in some other venue.....hehehehheheee..... I thought I would feel a lot worse about it, but I don't. I guess each day is just an adventure and I tried something I never thought I would try. Life is still good and I'm still a happy woman. Vacation Bible School is going on at my church all this week. Maybe that's why I have the outlook I have. Some good lessons are learned from watching children.....
