Surgery YIKES!

I had the dental surgery on Wednesday, and I am here to tell you, it was not pleasant, and I hope never to do it again. With all the technology they have today, there should be a better way. In addition, I am wearing a retainer that makes me talk like my 2 front teeth are missing. Not very funny at my age! But, the good part is that when I feel like it, I can sew. Today has been my best day so far, and I have done some quilting. And when I don't feel like it, I can surf the quilting blogs!

A Quilting Weekend

I am so looking forward to the weekend! My little angel grandbaby will be here, but he is my best quilting buddy! He helps me, gives me his opinion on how things look, and also keeps me laughing. I am not sure what is better medicine for me, Beany or my quilting. I am going to finish the art quilt and the Dresden plate this weekend, and continue working on the GRG, which is now considered my masterpiece. Isn't quilting the best? Next to grandchildren I mean.

Catching Up

What a week! I have been running like a mad woman for the past 2 weeks, and it seems that I may be doing it for a while. There are just never enough hours in the day, and then the days just fly by! The month of January has been a complete blur! But then, most of 2007 was also! Don't you wish that we could slow down, and live like people did years ago before all the technology took control? I know that I do! My GRG is coming along beautifully, better than ever before, and yesterday, while sewing with my Mom, I started an art quilt for my son and his fiance. It is a small wall hanging, and so cute. It is a caricature of their dog, Milo. I think that they will love it. I hope to have it finished soon, since it is small. The hand quilting will take the most time. The Dresden plate has taken a back seat to my busy schedule, but is not gone, just on hold. I need 10 extra hours everyday to work on my quilts....can someone find that for me???
