Postings and ponderings of a quilting and knitting addict!

Wednesday, August 18, 2010


There are so many times I wish I had a “do-over”… when I do an “oops” on a sewing project, when that long cast while fishing lands in a bush instead of the water, when I burned or over-salted something I was cooking… the list could be endless.  I just found out I DO have a do-over in one instance.

Remember in my last post I was whining sharing about how we bowled poorly at Natchez… WE GET A DO-OVER!  Friends going to the tournament this weekend needed a substitute couple, and here we go again.  Perhaps we can improve our scores, but if not, we will still have a good visit with friends from our area.

SUBJECT CHANGE:  I thought I might get the twin’s quilts done this week… NOT!  (UPDATE:  They are home and doing well.)  I picked up 6 quilts in my rounds yesterday.  This is not complaining…. because it bring in $$$$ !  I’m in a time and money-gathering crunch before I have to pay for my IQ install, so that is a real blessing!!  That also means that you probably won’t be seeing many posts from me in the next 2 weeks.  Just know that I am doing well and busy as a worker bee, well, WORKING!

Somewhere in the midst of all this craziness I must find time to do a little painting in my quilting room.  I have a very long shelf that can’t be taken out (too long to turn the corner with the quilting machine in there) that really needs repainting.  Left-over peach paint from the hallway paint job several years ago will do nicely.  I also want to paint the chair and perhaps the table I will be using in there… We will see exactly how much gets done but the shelf MUST get painted before IQ arrives.  Once we get the install done I can not push the machine over to the other side of the room to work on the shelf.  Once IQ is set up and level (in a very un-level room) I am not moving that machine for anything!

Now I am “off to the races” today… quilting, laundry, etc.  Have a blessed day and rest-of-the-week, too.



  1. You have a nice variety of projects lined up for the next few weeks. Have fun!

  2. Happy tripping and get back safely and soon.

  3. Can't wait to see your new painted quilt room. Happy Quilting!
