GGS's Quilt Top, ramblings



What I got done yesterday. I felt pretty productive, but when I took a picture it sure doesn't look like a lot..VBS...Of course I have a long way to go before it's finished, I am going to put a large border at the top and put his name and a teddy bear on that. I am kinda doing my own thing, I do have a pattern that is inspiring me,but when I get through my quilt will be quiet different.Hope Mommy and Daddy will like it when I am through..I had to lay it on the bed for photos, sorry

As DH and I was going to find the quilt store yesterday evening a young man came up beside us at a stop light and motioned for me to roll down my window, and reluctantly I did so. He told us that the inside tire on the back of the truck was down. So, we had to then find a tire shop, and it took them 2 hours to put on a new tire. I realize that they had to take the outside tire off, then the inside tire (what was left, it was shredded)off, and replace both, but 2 hours seemed like a very long time.I guess we should just be thankful we found a place that could take us right away and also have the tire we needed. He did leave the hub off, so DH is back over this morning to get that back... It seems its always some drama in our lives.I suppose being on the road makes everything seem worse than it should be...

Well, that put us about 5:15 getting to the Quilter's Corner ( they closed at 6) so I had to hurry. Maybe that is also why they weren't as friendly as most quilt stores I have been to. I was probably in there 5 or 6 minutes before anyone spoke to me,and I was the only customer there.

Would I go back, probably not, and YES, I did leave before 6pm. I always get out of anyplace that has posted hours on time. Maybe they were having a bad day and just wanted to get home.

So, today, I plan to cut out my applique pieces and try to get them ironed on, so that tomorrow I may be able to sew a while before we leave here for work, or maybe tomorrow will be the first day I let DH go to work by himself and I just stay here at the sewing machine***Nice Thought***. The Home Depot we work tomorrow is visible from our motel room, actually I could probably walk over later. If the street goes through, I will check that out when we go out in a bit.

Ladies, It is COLD here today and this afternoon around 3 pm ( thats when we start work) we are supposed to have bad thunderstorms, with high winds and tornado warnings. I am not looking forward to this afternoon at all. This weather is supposed to last all night. Maybe they will have a place we can take the car inside. If not we may get to leave early as we CAN NOT let the car get wet.. All the sinage on it is decals, plus no windows and the hole in the hood would let the rain go right through to the motor. Carrying this car around is like carrying a baby, you sure have to be careful.LOL

Gonna get up from here and get to the ironing board and press the fabric I need for today and tomorrow,catch all of you later. Have a great day..

I think your baby quilt will be really cute with the bear appliqued on it! I guess you are in OK City today. Hope the weather isn't too bad. We've been having storms here, but none of the really bad ones have hit us. Ruth

Sweet quilt for the little one . . . it's sure to be loved.
Too bad about the quilt shop . . . some are just not as welcoming for some reason - Their loss, I say *s*

That's a huge responsibility to keep the car safe and dry, you're right-- it's lake caring for a baby. GGS's quilt is so cute.
