I hope everyone is having a nice day. I had the pleasure of having my husband (with a tiny bit of help from the boys) cook and clean up our entire noon meal. We call it dinner, you probably call it lunch.
I tried to help clear the table, but Mark grabbed the salt and pepper shakers out of my hand and told me to go away.
So, I’ve been knitting a bit and quilting a bit. Sitting around a bit. I’ve been typing and just deleted a whole big whine about the irritating thing that happened at church this morning. I’ve decided it is not worth boring you with. I suspect it mostly makes me sound whiny. The moral of the story is that people really need to COMMUNICATE with each other. Pick up the phone, tell me what’s going on, I’m happy with whatever, just TELL me and TELL other people.
OK, that was more of a whine than I intended.
The biggest gift the boys have given me is that I get to choose tonight’s popcorn movie. What to choose, what to choose….
Hmmm. I’m wishing I had a copy of Enchanted to subject them to, but alas, I do not. I was also considering something like Sleeping Beauty or the like, but I think I might go for the SuperMom award and pick something that they will actually enjoy.
Speaking of things I like. I like quilting on sateen. I like quilting feathers. But I did not like this lime green Polyquilter.
I’m probably also not going to like the way this thing is going to attract lint, being black and all, but it’s not actually going to be my problem, as I think I’m going to give it to the owner of A-1 to hang in the A-1 booth at shows. If he wants it. I think it’s kind of cool, but what do I know.
(Click to look at it a little bigger).
Better go choose that movie.

Happy Mother’s Day!
So? What movie did you choose?
Vicki W says
that’s funny. I was just looking through your book this morning and decided that I would do that style of meander spine on one of the QOV quilts that I have coming up!
Deb Levy says
I love the feathers….I even like lime green. Glad you had a good Mother’s Day. Can’t wait to get my hands on the new book! Just a couple more sleeps….
Tanya Brown says
My goodness, you do marvelous work. I especially like the little extra curl of embellishment you’ve added on the insides of some of the lime green feathers. I think the owner of A-1 will snap it right up.
I need to remember to post some of my own feathers, sort of a contrarian “here’s what you shouldn’t do” post. Perhaps I’ll even include it in a book, “101 Quilting Mistakes: There Now; Your Work Isn’t So Bad After All, Is It?”
I hope you had a lovely day, and you should always feel free to blow off steam to your bloggy friends.
Well I really Like that!! I wonder if I would be brave enough to use a bright color on dark.. you sure did an awesome job on it… will it be at MQS??? * I have a new camera ya know*
It’s beautiful the way it is! It wouldn’t let me enlarge it though. Must be operator error.
