I had a marvelous Sunday afternoon!! I completed 24 9 patches, (2 sets of 12) and plan to mail those out to Linda sometime today. Now we will each have 72 9 patches to play around with. Linda and Nancy have been very entertaining in the comments section of my last post. They both want those fabrics!!
While sewing my afternoon away, I watched the BEST movie EVER made....Anne of Green Gables. I only watched the first video (I need to upgrade these to DVD). I was thrilled to watch Anne (with an "e") find a home with Marilla and Matthew. I love that she asked to be called "Cordellia"Then she got her forever dream of a "bosom friend"...Now this afternoon I will finish part 2 and work on the Hidden Star top. I will have to stop and weep uncontrollably when Matthew collapses in the field.And I will stop to give Anne my two cents....for cryin out pete, girl!! The boy loves you!!!! Can't you see it????I am blessed to be able to spend some of my time this way. My sister came to town today and I watched her little grandson (she is raising him) while she got her hair done. That little Dominic is a card!! He is 4 and the sweetest thing ever. He did get upset with Zach and Zach said Dommie threw some chess pieces at him. Here was my conversation with Dominic:
Me: Did you throw those pieces at Zach.
Dom: No, I didn't do it.
Me, looking at all the pieces scattered around the room: Dominic, if you are lying you will get a time out.
Dom, eyes BIG: What do I get if I tell the truth?
Me, stifling a giggle: Well you will need to pick up the pieces and tell Zach you are sorry.
Dom: I did it.
He was very cute!! Too cute for his own good.
Debbie came back from her hair appointment and we went to lunch. Speaking of food....I had a grilled chicken salad and a diet coke (oh my gosh was that diet coke good!)Today is the day to update in Sharon's challenge. I jumped into the Diet Challenge late, but I did lose 3 pounds this week. 1.5 since I joined in the middle of the week. I am down 2 pants sizes and feeling much better.
I do not use my blog to talk politics, but I need to stand up for my state. Illinois is a good place...honest. There are wonderful people here. We just are not the best at electing good, honest, officials. Blogo embarrassed us again with his narcissistic comments on the morning show he was on...I think he then went over to The View (which I do not watch) and probably embarrassed us there too. Did he actually consider naming Oprah for Senate??? Yeesh.Enough of that!!! What is the world coming to??? My little world needs some quilts finished, so I am off. Have a wonderful day! See you Wednesday for the fabric draw!
