Spring Break

Sara is home for Spring break. I can tell you I'm glad she's not on some beach somewhere doing gosh knows what! We've been entertaining ourselves with"Skype".
Last night she decided that we both needed to download Skype and see how it works. It's amazing. So easy to use. We spent the first half hour "skypeing" each other. She was in her bedroom and I was in mine. Sure doesn't take much to entertain us.

Today we are going north to a local mall. Hopefully my sister and her daughter are going to go with us. Sara wants to hit Old Navy, Sam's Club, and Dillards. I'm just hoping it doesn't hit my wallet too hard.

On the sewing front, not much going on. I still need to finish the sashings for Judy's quilt a long. Maybe today when I get back. I think I have til Tuesday to send my picture.
I did work at the local quilt shop yesterday. I spent six hours cutting fabric, talking to customers, and taking money. The talking and taking money was my favorite part. I did not buy any fabric yesterday! Hard to do when you are there for six hours. I'm trying to console myself with the idea that I got to fondle fabric all day, even if I didn't bring it home. Just need that fabric fix. The quilt shop gives me all the benefits, without the damage to my wallent (so far).

Off to the mall.....hope you are all sewing up a storm!

Quilt Along

Yippe I finished the third set of intructions. I'm still not thrilled with my sashing, but at this point, I'm just glad to have them finished.

What I Did Today!

Bet you thought I made this quilt today. Nope, I just put the binding on it for a friend.

Bears In The Farm House

I just finished my half square triangles for the Quilt A Long I'm doing with Judy L. As usual I wait til the last minute. Sara just left for OSU and I really didn't want to work on them while she was home. We had a great day on Saturday. Just bumming around together.

I watched my great nephew and great niece on Friday. The are such good kids. They were only here for a couple of hours. Thank goodness I kept several of Sara's toys. We got out the doll house and then the Legos. Carynn was very interested in my sewing, so who knows, she may end up being a quilter!! Here's a pic of Carynn, she was fascinated with my thimbles.
