I'm done ranting and raving, it's Wednesday and I'm almost back to my old self. The weekend was fun. Loved spending time with the little one. Even if she was a carrier. Now I have a fever and chills and the making of a cold. I sat thru interviews on a panel yesterday, if not for those air born type of things and aspirin I don't think I would have made it through the day. Today I'm going to stay home, lay low, rest and hopeful beat this critter!
Before I went off of the edge I was going to tell you that I finished the Turtle quilt, I'm in the process of making a label. It's going to be a turtle with writing on it's back. I don't have a good printer to make those groovy labels so this one will do. It was an easy job of quilting, I usually balk when it comes to the quilting part (that is why there is a pile of flimsies over there <<<<). This one went along well. I stitched in the ditch around each turtle and the rick rack in the border. Put a flower on the back of each turtle and just did wavy diagonal lines behind it all. I'm pleased the how it went and now need to hurry up and start quilting another before the feeling goes away! Won't be today though.
I've been diligently working on socks. I have about 5 done, but need to go back and check my placement. I am my own worst enemy. Most of the time I go around hitting my head like they do in that V8 commercial. They might be ok, I just need to check. Hope I get lucky and not have to unsew them. I hate to go in reverse!
I have a lot of non quilty stuff to take care of, and none of it is fun. Oil Change, Post Office, Gather Tax papers, find someone to fix my dryer that stopped working this weekend. That is Friday's list, so I need to get rid of this cold. I have Sunday to look forward to. I volunteered to help out at Main Street Quilts. Susie isn't usually open on Sunday, but it's the last day of the shop hop and I know she will be worn out.
Now on to the reason for this middle of the week post. One of my new fab fav bloggers is having a pattern giveaway! So if you haven't already done so, hurry on over to Dorky Homemade Quilts. Even if you don't win she'll make you smile!
And this blogger is looking for love, blog love that is. She hasn't had the draw yet, so hurry and put your name in the hat, I bet she'll include you, and her prices aren't bad either! I love me some fabric!
EDIT: I almost forgot something! Lynette Anderson is doing a little stitchery give away, she is posting a download of her Noah's Ark stitchery every month for the year in celebration of her blogging anniversary. Cute Cute Cute!!! Thanks Lynette!
EDIT EDIT: I just found that Sharon is doing a little giveaway! Hope I get lucky!
I'm going to go park on the couch and cuddle up with the kitties and a quilt. I have "No Reservations" from Netflix to watch or maybe sleep through it, we'll see!
