Hope all is having a great day, it's has turned very cold here. I don't like cold weather, actually, cold weather doesn't like me.My arthritis is giving me a fit, and add my fibromyalgia to that and this old girl is pretty miserable. BUT I am sure tomorrow will be a better day.
DH and I met my sister and BIL yesterday in Wytheville, Va. They were looking at some property.Beautiful mountain property, but I sure wouldn't want to live there. It was way back in the mountains. No one has even built on it yet, but I am sure someday it will be a lovely place to live. I have no idea what they have decided to do, but whatever they decide will be a while away. They both are still working and this would be where they retire. I was hoping they would move a lot closer to us, but don't know yet. This is the first place they have looked.
DH and I got there on Saturday evening and I went to Batiks Etcetera &Sew What Fabrics, they are the closest Pfaff dealer around here that I am aware of and I needed 2 feet for the machine I carry with me when I travel.That was all I purchased, I am going to have to sew up some of the fabric I have on hand, my sewing room is full to the brim. I can hardly get around and I can't find any more " spots" to put things.
I think we are probably through working (traveling) until the end of the year so maybe I will get a LOT of sewing done. That is my plan anyway. I have quilted both the baby quilts I made last week, now have to bind them. I plan to have that done and get them in the mail by the end of this week.BUT first, I have a mountain of ironing to do , so I need to get busy TODAY and get that done.
Stay warm and go ahead and quilt memories, that's always FUN. BOBBIN

Wednesday, October 22, 2008
Now that vacation is over and our work is done ( except for 4 days), maybe I can get busy sewing, and that will be great ***VBS ***,
actually I have sewed a little. But that will be another post,in the next few days.
These are pictures that I made while at Murrell's Inlet,my sister and I went to 3 stores while at Myrtle Beach, and this is the only one that I took pictures of.I didn't have my camera at the first one and the last one didn't allow pics taken. This was a very nice spacious shop, lots of pretties and LOTS of lovely fabrics. I am sure all of you get tired of reading that all the shops are pretty and have nice fabric selections, but after all, that is what quilt shops are all about ***VBS***.
I have been very busy trying to get settled back here, I find myself looking for things that I should remember where I put them, am not sure if it's old age or what, but it is frusterating. Last Wednesday I was going to sew and after I got my machine back out ( I put it up while I was gone) I COULD NOT find the thread caps to my machine, well, I searched for about 30 minutes and decided that I must have lost them, even though I didn't take them with me, but I went in the other room and was doing some other things and all the sudden I remembered exactly where they were. SO, I did get to sew after all.Tomorrow I plan to quilt 2 baby quilts I have put together, I used some panels, so I really didn't MAKE a quilt, but the families that I will give them too, will like them anyway, or so I hope.I also, put together a Christmas throw, and that took a little more time and thought. I put a flange after the panel and it has 5 borders and cornerstones and I appliqued stars on the cornerstones.All in all I was proud of it. I made it for the LQS, hopefully it will meet the owners approval and she will want to display it. We haven't taken pics yet, I want to wait until I get the baby quilts completed. I don't know how much sewing time I will have tomorrow, There is a mountain of laundry to get done. So we will just wait and see, I do have them sandwiched and pinned,I'm happy that is done. That is my least favorite part of making a quilt.
I have rattled enough for tonight, so hope all of you are quilting memories, see you soon, take care,
