Well,look what my daughter done while I was traveling***VBS***. Yes, she surprised me, although I left her the fabric to make this top. I really did NOT think she would do it,but as you can see she proved me wrong..**ANOTHER VBS***.
Several years ago my DH came home with a bag of scraps he had purchased and I was going to just randomly sew them together and see what I got. I got very tired of that in a big hurry. I have since decided I must have a pattern and a plan. Not sure I will ever be content to sew a crazy quilt. But, she (DD) was there when I was gathering some "stuff" to bring with me on the road, and she mentioned she would like to make a crazy quilt ( her version of one anyhow), so I remembered the bin of scraps and gave then to her. I really never thought she would put together a quilt top.( Don't our children love to prove us wrong???) I was very surprised when she came in with that quilt top finished. Don't get me wrong, I knew she could do it, she has sewn for many, many years,very sporadically, but she has sewed,So I am so PROUD of her, I want the whole blog world to know....YEAH...
So now, I have given her the fabric for the backing ( she must get the batting herself), I did tell her to go to the LQS so they would sell her what she needs. She plans to tye it and I think that will be a good choice.I just wish I was there to enjoy watching her accompolish all this, but we talk on the phone almost daily so she will now keep me up to date.To me,this is more exciting than making one myself. Now do I sound like a silly Mom or what??? So let me say, KatRat if you are reading this you have one proud Mom sitting here with tears in her eyes just thinking about you sitting at your machine sewing away. Keep up the good work**VBS**
Well, this silly old woman is going to get off here and see who else I need to get in touch with, hope to be quilting memories of my own on Thursday. Tomorrow one of my new quilting blog friends is meeting me and we are planning to go to dinner. I can't wait.Later, J

We saw all of our family and several friends and done some chores around the house while we were at home.I have no idea where we get so much laundry, I didn't have anything to wash except the clothes we had for the two days we were traveling, but before I left, I had washed 5 loads...I am not sure whether we are really dirty or really clean...VBS...
As I posted the last time I did go to the LQS ( fabric therapy)and left there with several projects to complete while on the road, and YES we have a new generator so should not have any electricity problems. If we do you will probably hear me protesting at YOUR house, and that may be a long way from here, but I can be pretty loud if necessary..LOL
I am so excited, Wednesday, I will get to meet my first blog buddy. We have emailed a few times and she is going to come see me. We will be in front of a Wal Mart, so she has an advantage, she will see me before I see her. We plan to go eat, so we can get to know each other a little.
I hope she likes me and we can continue our friendship even though it will be long distant, Will see....I am sure I will like her...
I haven't felt very good for the last 2 days, headache, I think maybe its my sinuses, hopefully they will clear up soon. Am taking Claritin, I have to be careful what I take because of all the prescription meds I take. So am going to take a hot shower and get to bed early. We have settled into a very nice motel with a large room. Will be in here for 12 days, so we need enough space to move around a little without stepping on each other..VBG..
I have some pics to post, but have to wait for DH to get them from the camera to the comp, hope he will do that soon.I had a NICE surprise when we got home, but want to wait until I can show the pics before I say anything.
Going to get off here and go take that needed HOT SHOWER, hope all of you are quilting memories, and certainly hope I will be joining you myself in the next few days. I have sorely missed quilting memories of my own. Later, J

I ran out of time to get it cut today, but will go back tomorrow and get that and whatever else I may find.

We are on our way home for a few days. I sure will be happy to see my family. I have never been away from my children and grandchildren this long, and I sure do miss them. I don't know how I am going to handle being gone for 3 1/2 months without going home, but I will worry about that next week. Today, I am just excited about seeing them starting tomorrow....
Also, seeing some friends is going to be nice, I have missed them too. Wish I could see my sister and BIL, also my brother and SIL, but unfortunately they live too far away.
I am going to get ready for bed, we plan to get up extra early in the am, and try to beat the early morning traffic through Atlanta. That is always a nightmare, so hopefully we can miss most of it.. Everyone take care and do some thing quilty for me, catch all of you later. J
PS, Thanks to all of you that commented and emailed me with your concerns about our truck being broken into, life is just so much easier when you know people care. Thanks again, J

The truck inside was a big mess, I hope whoever done this is happy, cause I could strangle them. I am discovering we aren't the only ones that have been broken into. As I said in the last blog, someone had a GPS system taken, but DH has been talking to a man whose is staying here ( working somewhere) and his work truck was broke in on Saturday night. It seems they took a camera and only papers with names, etc. on them. He said he had a gun, tools and extra keys to the truck and they only took a bag with his papers and an extra credit card... already used the card...Also a sizeable check (someone had paid him), now we are convinced they are looking for identy. That is very scarey.Although we had nothing in the truck with our personal stuff ( that they saw), that is a relief. We did have all the paperwork for our taxes, but they didn't bother that at all. That would have been a mess, cause it had both our SS #"s in there. I do thank goodness they didn't see that.Thank God for small favors........We will be moving from here Saturday, so that will be good. Also, Hubby found the security alarm button under the seat ( on my side) while we were cleaning up the mess. We had looked for that before we left home, because we knew all the trucks were supposed to have one. But who would have thought to look under the passenger side seat?I hope when we get home our new truck will be waiting for us, then it will be equipped with all the bells and whistles, and that will be a good thing. The trailer also has an alarm system, and it is very LOUD... Would probably even wake me up.LOL..I don't go to sleep very good, but when I get to sleep I am dead..... I really am hard to wake.
I was just looking at the pics I have posted, and realize the top pic shows my purse, but I had just set it down to take the pics,it was not left in the truck.

Her cousin was taking her to lunch then shopping then there was going to be cake and ice cream at the church (youth) tonight. She does stay busy, but I feel kinda sorry for her, not only are we gone but so is her Daddy. He will be home a couple days before us, but he will get to stay for about 6 weeks.She sure does miss all of us, but not nearly as much as I miss my little "Love Bug".Happy Birthday, Love Bug.......
