It's Friday!!

You know you're getting older when what you look forward to on the weekend is a nice nap on the couch!

I don't miss the days of wondering what I was doing on a Friday or Saturday night because other people had a date and I didn't.  Because my gosh that was a LOOONNNNGGG time ago, and my memory isn't that good.

Tonight we're back to doing my normal Friday Night Sewing Circle.  We missed two weeks because my aunt went to Ireland.  Yeah, the one where they have Dublin... and leprechauns and Irish Stew and all that.

I asked her to bring back the pot of gold and the rainbow it's under, but no such luck.

Here are a few of the things I did in her absence:

Ate lunch across the bridge project in Elm Grove.  Patched Works (LQS) is on the other side.

...with my youngest Granddaughter, Miss A.

We went to the Quilt Museum in Cedarburg. 

I made a pillow case to match a quilt my friend Suzi made.

I quilted - yeah, me! -- a table runner I started that was on the five year plan.

sewed a kit of the Wisconsin Row By Row from Quilt-agious...

and made a wallet for my quilt shop rewards cards from a kit from Schoolhouse Night at our last guild meeting.
So I've been a busy girl.

Sew on...

Paying for Vacations...

I'm still alive but my fingers are worn out from actual work.  Maybe tomorrow I'll be able to post a few of the pictures of my recent sewing.  Yes, I actually did some while on vacation. 

But you know what they say about when you go on vacation, right??  You pay before you go, and you pay when you come back.

And am I paying!!!  AUUGGHHH!!

Sew on...
