I had a Pampered Sit n Sew day a week ago Friday and another one on Sunday. BOTH were full and there was a HUGE demand on the pressing. I see we are going to have to change the rules. I will ONLY press what they actually sew during the day!!!!! None of this sneaking stuff in! Let's just say that the PRESSER (ME) needed a rest - I needed some pampering which of course I didn't get and my feet were protesting!!!
It was the LAST day of the Olympics and the men's hocky game. I went out and bought a cake before the group came. Regardless of whether the team won or not - we were all so proud of our athletes. See.....
|Our Canada celebration cake!!|
Like myself, a great many of my sewing buddies are trying to complete projects and I just LOVE when they share them with me.
Claudette brought along a couple of projects that she has been working on.

|Thanks to my FABULOUS pressing, Ronda got her log cabin together. I did a lot of it at the last Sit n Sew. I think I deserve credit on the label!!!!|
|And Sharron got her black and white top together - this is HUGE!!!! But she left with the top pressed and ready to be quilted!!!! I also pressed most of this quilt! Hmmm - more credit!!!!|
Let's not forget Ronda's Hopscotch and there was other stuff as well. It was a very productive day for everyone!!!!
Had a great physical - well as good as all that gets!!!! When the doctor asks - any issues and you are able to truthfully reply - nope!! (OK - two small age related ones, but who is counting!!) I did NOT make it for the blood work as I had to get somewhere else so I fasted for nothing!!! Oh well - no big deal. I survived.
I have TWO sewing days booked this week (one or two spots still available on Thursday if anyone is interested) and I have been prepping. I believe there are bits and pieces of FIVE quilts cut and ready to sew. I have been working on them for a bit and just advancing to the next stage.
Well loads more to blog - just so little time these days. I am trying to work through those paperwork issues and I seem to be on the go constantly. No time to sit down. But NOTHING planned for the entire weekend. Not sure how that happened, but I am so looking forward to doing NOTHING (as if!!!) And I MUST clear my computer and shut it down. It has gotten V E R Y S L O W and that is just because there are too many windows open. Just like my brain! Off in a thousand directions at the same time.
Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!
