Quilts are the bomb..!September 1, 2012
seminar “stuff”September 3, 2012
Hello all, Mary Ellen here.
I think we’re all dating ourselves who can remember what happened for years on Labor Day weekend with Burt Parks singing that famous song “There she is…” I won’t finish it, so if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you’ll be able to kid yourself that it’s because you’re too young!!
I finally got the next Lucy Goosey directions (#5) worked up. You’ll find the pattern here: sept lucy goosey. I’m kind of amazed that we’re at month 5, one more to go! I must admit that with the summer hub-bub and seminar preparations, I am behind. I have to finish my #4 and get a sample done for #5. I had told myself that if I was organizing this quilt-a-long, I would have to keep up! Oh well, life happens.
Do you have any kiddos heading off to school this week? My 5 year old twins will be going to kindergarten on Wednesday. I hope there will be no tears. They’ll be fine, it’s me I worry about! Got to get to their house for the photo-op as they get on the big yellow
limo bus, making it a tradition with a photo at the front door. Wonder how much they’ve grown since last September? One of them takes his eye spy quilt with him everywhere-hopefully no arguments about leaving it home will spoil the start of the day.
I think we’ll (the dog and I) be getting up earlier now, since the sounds on the street will be changing and the canine seems to be hyper-alert in the a.m. He has to be on guard duty for that crazy lady who throws the newspaper at our front door every morning. You know, if he stares her down and barks enough she goes away! Maybe the extra hours will translate into more quilting time. Here’s hoping! Got to start thinking about the quilts I’ll need for the holiday gift giving. Yikes! I said that out loud, figuratively anyway.
Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend, and get ready for a change in routine.
