It is damp and dreary here. I like it, but it is grey. I got a rather rude email this morning ...but I won't go into it here. Just suffice it to say it ticked me off.
So there....I am taking my ball and going home. But not really.
OK, let's look at my latest quilt.
The Willow and White Gum Leaf quilt is all finished and up on the wall. Can you see that blue stain over on the side? Well...it is ink form some damn thing, I don't know what. I was clipping the very very very last thread from the binding, getting ready to stand back and admire it and what do you know? there was a little blue mark, so I rubbed it (thinking it was a tad of lint) and it spread to this. Oh well....the quilt is for me and I love it anyway.
Here is what it looks like a little further away. Not bad, blue mark and all.
I think this guy is the real reason I am freaking out a bit. He goes in for surgery tomorrow. Last time one of my boys had dental surgery he almost died in recovery, so I am a bit of a basket case. I had nightmares last night that I was having my teeth drilled all night. My jaws are still sore.
Yes I do brush my children's teeth. And we rarely eat candy and almost NEVER juice. I loath soda, so they don't get that either, unless we are at a restaurant.
I am learning quite a bit from the cats. Thank goodness the male is fixed, the female will have her uterus removed as soon as she weans her kitties. We had her appointment at the same time as the male, but she was already so obviously pregnant, that I held off. Isn't that stupid? Just because I am anti-abortion for myself I decided that surely my cat would have the same feelings. I have a pretty horrible story that I kinda want to share just to get it off my chest, but I am afraid some of you will be ill all over your computers. I would hate for that to happen.
Let me wrap this post up with a big THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH to everyone who ordered a bag this last go round. I figure these orders will keep me busy for a good bit. Normally it takes a while for the uniforms, order forms, and fabric to all come together here in my sewing room but when they do! Woo hoo!!! It is going to be great. I will have a little list over on the side so you can all see where you are on the list and where I am on your bag. Please don't be a stranger!
