ohmygoshIamsobusyIdon'thavetimetostopandblog! deep breath. sorry about that. I'm trying to make the most of every minute, and some times I get in a bit of a rush.
I took a break from it all this weekend, as we drove to San Carlos to visit our granddaughter (and her parents) for her third birthday party. Where does the time go?!!
Last week I was out at the walnuts, and the trees are "pushing." That means they are blooming, and beginning to show leaves.
M-AQF is over. I'm expecting my quilts back any day now. Lancaster opens this week, I think, and I have a quilt hanging there. I probably should have skipped this show, because the quilt will be coming back very close to the date it's due for Best of the Valley. That is additional stress that I probably didn't need right now.
So anyway, with actual quilting? I made a birthday card for the birthday girl, but forgot to snap a picture of it. I didn't have time to make it before we left, so I grabbed the ingredients and hand-stitched it on Saturday afternoon, while she was taking her nap. I put it on the coffee table, and when she got up, she announced, "This is mine!" When I asked how she knew, she looked at me like I was silly. "Gramma! It's got a 'three' on it! And see? On the back? It says P-E-N-N-Y...Penny!"
Okay! Maybe I should have gotten her an Encyclopedia Britannica for some light reading in her spare time! ;)
And on that, I'm out of spare time. Time to get to work, we've got a quilt show to put together!
