Design Wall Monday – 6/20//11

I sewed! My sewing machine was soooo happy!

All the pieces are sewn into rows and the first two rows are sewn together. I had the next set of rows sewed together and had to rip them out. So I decided that was a good place to stop for the night.

An update

Sorry I haven't been around lately. My Dad was in a car accident last week. And had to spend some time in the hospital. He's home now and doing much better.

Maybe life can return to normal now.

The Perfect Shot

A guy stood over his tee shot for what seemed an eternity, looking up, looking down, measuring the distance, figuring the wind direction and speed, driving his partner nuts.

Finally his exasperated partner says, "What the heck is taking so long? Hit the darned ball!"

The guy answers, "My wife is up there watching me from the clubhouse. I want to make this a perfect shot."

"Give me a break! You don't stand a snowball's chance of hitting her from here."

Design Wall Monday – 6/6//11

I found a quilt pattern that I like and it looks simple. It even says it's "super easy." I still have more to cut. Cutting is going to take the most time I think. I still have more to cut so you just get to see a pile of fabrics. It's totally scrappy so you'll have to come back to see it.
