Postings and ponderings of a quilting and knitting addict!

What a WONDERFUL day! Yes, it IS gray, and rainy, and cool. But inside it is WONDERFUL! Although it is Saturday, today I will work because I played hookie one day this week. Shortly, I will go flip the switch, and "Gussie Fay" (my Gammill Classic Plus quilting machine) will wake up. It is like saying "Good morning!" to a close friend when I walk in the room with her. Crank up the praise music and we are ready to begin another daily adventure. Since DH is off "playing" today (Oops! I mean WORKING on a project with BIL), there will be very few pauses for lunch, etc... no schedule to meet today but my own. That means we (Gussie and I) will get LOTS of quilting done!

In a few minutes a quilt with brightly colored pinwheels will lie mounted on the machine. Decisions have been made (brown thread, Primrose Swirl quilting pattern, cotton batting) and so the machine will hum through the work as I sing loudly along with my music. I try to hold it down when DH is here, but today I can "turn the bear loose", so to speak, (that's what a former music director called "singing loudly") and sing to my heart's content.

No skies of gray or cool, windy air can spoil this! Gussie is waiting... now off to this fun thing (most of the time) that some people call "work". How blessed I am that I can work this way! Thank You, Lord, that I can smile each time I think of working with the abilities You have given.

I hope YOU have a WONDERFUL day too! Ps 147:1 Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God; For it is pleasant, and praise is beautiful. (NKJ)

Gussie is calling... gotta go!

  1. Oh Kathy, I had the same kind of day yesterday. Was able to sew for hours. Husband dear went to Walmart for some grocery needs and EVEN took the sheets off the bed and washed them. Am I not the lucky wife. I won't be able to sew as much today. We are having an early church service, lunch, then the annual meeting. I don't enjoy the meetings, but they are required. Oh well. I believe in God and good days.


Thank you for visiting! I love comments... so thanks for taking the time to leave one.
