Good Morning Girls,
How is everyone this morning? It's a bit blustery outside today. It is feeling more like Winter though. : )
It was good to see you guys last evening! Thanks for hosting Cathy, but, uh, I think the Bee meetings may need to be relocated... Yes, we had a special guest visitor last night...Theresa Rache (spelling?!). WOW! She is a TRIP & a HALF!!! Poor Mike... Needless to say, our volume was increased 10 fold... You know how I sometimes call Barb a gatlin gun?! It's that rapid fire, never take a breath, kind of "talking @ you" - LOUDLY exchange. Well, I think Barb & Theresa Rache if left in a room together may kill one another...?! Whew!?
Again Cathy, thanks for hosting! And, for sewing on that button for Theresa's daughter...thankfully there was NO stapler involved!!! ; ) I LOVE your sewing machine tote. It's AWESOME!!! All the neat-o little cases & compartments are way cool. Plus, I think it's such a warm, fuzzy that your daughter "helped" Mike pick it out for you. You're a good Mom with a nice family!!! Thanks for making the trip up to your sewing room & bringing the tote down to show us! : ) We appreciated it! Keep an eye on Maureen though, she's ALL about those little compartments & such...
Speaking of Mo - thanks for bringing your framed needlepoint picture to Show 'n Tell!!! It is truly lovely!!! Your SIL did an amazing job! The colors are just gorgeous, & the mat & frame she chose are perfect. She has good taste & an artistic eye. Where did you hang it?
Jean - your Irish Cottage blocks are SO pretty. The added embroidery really gives depth & definition to the pieces. Your friend is truly blessed to have you as a friend. : ) Glad also to hear your sewing machine is back from the Spa & is sewing like a dream! Nice! When are you going to start your class projects?
And, speaking of class, look @ Miss Peggy!!! Going on-line to look for (more) fabric, reading the selvege edge info, finding the designer & manufacturer, & then ordering the fabric! I like the pansy fabrics & the green you chose. You GO & SEW girl!!! Hey, by the way, Richey will be HOME in 2 weeks!!! : )
Mare - glad you're feeling some better. : ) Do you have fabrics selected for Jean's next class too? What? I saw that Moda has some cute snowman fabric out. I forget what the line is called, but it's cute, & it made me think of YOU!
Lor - hey, we're ALL glad to know that your kids are HOME & healthy! No more hospital trips for a while, okay?! Your fabric calculator is nifty!!! It does a lot of cool calculations. And, the storage for it's booklet is certainly handy! The quilt rack John got for you sounds nice too. Where did/are you going to put it & what are you going to hang on it?!
Theresa - she can get you Motrin, but NOT Advil!!! She does NOT have a tattoo, but will fake show you her butt anyway! ; ) And, she does NOT sew (nor read, evidently)!!!
Lois, Leigh-Anne & Dolores - we missed you guys! What's sewing on your end?!
Me - thanks for looking @ my Trip backing. I thought I was going to the Library this morning to work on basting, but don't feel like it now. We had a leak in the basement, from the furnace. And, Jingle chewed the kitchen door mat this morning. Maybe I'll go to the Library a little later...?
