Good Morning Girls,
I am doing that crazy "up all night @ home" gig. : ) Scott went back to work tonight, & I return tomorrow. : / We enjoyed the second half of our quiet week's vacation @ HOME! : )
Jingle is doing better. Thanks. He was SICK on Friday morning & we were pretty concerned about him. By Saturday he was back to his usual self. No call from the Vet, so that's good. He'll need a follow up appointment next week. He's taking his antibiotic & we're using a cream on him too. We have begun daily cat & dog meetings @ the gate. It's not going too badly. We also brought Jingle into the dining room while Scott & I worked on a puzzle @ the dining room table. We brought his bed in & I SO didn't think he'd lie down on it, but he did! : ) He LOVES the snow!!!
I am making sweet & spicy Italian sausages with peppers & tomatoes in the crock pot for dinner tonight. YUM! I also cooked down a crook neck pumpkin & need to run it through my canning funnel. Then I'll freeze it. I did laundry, which included some new fabrics! ; ) I did some more free motion quilting too. : ) All sorts of things going on here in the wee hours!!!
SEW...I did some FMQ this afternoon with my Trip project & BSR foot. Before I began, I thought, "Hmmm, I should maybe do a practice piece to warm up...nah! Maybe I should change my needle...nah!" An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!!! I free motioned quilted for a half hour & spent an hour un-sewing it!!! The tension was ALL loopy on the back. The needle needed to be changed!!! I was saying some BLUE words... So, I nicely cleaned & oiled my machine, gave it a new needle & stitched for just a little bit before it was time for us to nap.
Jean - GLAD to hear that your Garden top is DONE!!! Do you have the back ready too? Do you want us to help baste it on Tuesday...? Just a thought.
Mare - get your sewing machine OUT! The holidays are OVER, and you got some new fabrics!!! Let's SEW girl! ; )
Peggy - just 2 days!!! You're going to be WILD(er) @ Quilt Mama's this week!!! : )
Looking forward to QM's @ Cathy's on Tuesday!
Have a good week, girls!
