So did you have a good weekend? It threatened rain here but didn't come through. Lots of puffy clouds though. I love that.
Friday I had a great day. Started out with breakfast out with my friend Dee. I've known Dee for about 6 years, she works at the shop and is an excellent teacher. Patient, kind, knowledgeable. She teaches a lot of beginner classes and does the kids camp in the summer.
She has started her own pattern company, DeeVine Quilts
, and she brought me a one of her first patterns, which is my favorite. I had some fabrics set aside for a while, waiting to use them on this quilt. I had planned on making it as a sample for the shop, so just picked things that were available, but maybe now I'll do some switcheroo, I'm not loving that yellow anymore. Sometimes it seems weird just sewing for fun and not with the idea of doing something that might work out at the shop.
Got some mailbox love from Sandy
and Shirley. Love those little frames Shirley. Sandy popped that head vase in along with her new pattern Paper Doll Dresses
. It is so clever.
I'm lucky to have such good friends. And breakfast out.. why aren't we doing that more often?
Ok, this week is my experiment.. I'm going to try turning off the word verification for comments. I'm having a heck of a time leaving comments out and around. Typepad seems to be running at a snail's pace and I confess, I often give up before my comment goes through. That doesn't seem fair since you are all so faithful with your comments. I hope if there are robots out there posting, they're the sweet Robbie type and not that scary Robocop kind. Those freak me out.
