Hi Everyone and Welcome to my Blog,
I’ve been set to silent last week. We had some crazy things going on.
I had some tires put on my car and had to wait on them for three hours. I won’t be doing that again. Next time my husband can go alone. We had them done at Wal-Mart and they were so busy. I guess I thought I would shop for my groceries while they were being installed. I finished shopping and went check on the car. It wasn’t even in the bay yet. I stashed all my cold items in a freezer on the end of an aisle so it wouldn’t defrost while I was waiting. Then went back for them when it was time to check out. Do I have to say that we left with way too much groceries? Maybe I won’t have to shop for a couple of weeks.
Our recessed microwave broke. Boy, I didn’t realize how much I use that thing. I can remember the day when we reheated everything on the stove or in the oven. This appliance has spoiled me with its ease. It’s been having trouble for a while. Since it sits above my stove, when I boil something, it tends to steam up the touch panel and not all the buttons work until it dries out. Well it finally wasn’t going back to normal any more. Another issue we were having this summer is that a wasp nest set up house in our vent pipe. I would come how from work every day and there would be a wasp in the kitchen. We must have killed a dozen or more of those things. Just when I thought I got rid of them (I hadn’t seen any for a couple of weeks) the nest fell into the exhaust fan. You could hear it popping around in there. So you can see why we finally gave up and got a new one. It was quite the ordeal to hoist that thing into the space. It was a very tight fit. Anyway, it’s now pretty and new and hopefully will last another sixteen years like the first one did.
Well that’s all the drama going on let’s talk about something fun. I’ve gotten back on focus on my Nostalgia Twist Quilt test pattern for Denise @ For the Love of Geese. The next row is flying geese with block in a block corner stones. I have these Geese blocks done and still have another 20 or so to do that have six geese on them. I am hopeful that I can finish them by the end of this weekend.
I will be taking a road trip the following weekend to Hamilton, Missouri. I’m sure all my quilty friends know what is there. Missouri Star Quilt Company is having their birthday bash and I’ll go bash with them. I’m hoping I can get a selfie with Jenny or Rob. I’ll certainly share it with you when I get back.
The other item I’ve been trying to work on is Roseanne and Sue’s Sew Along. I mentioned it earlier in a post here. I’ve started putting a couple blocks together and you can see two of my color ways. There are two other color blocks, I’ll show them off soon.
The linky parties I usually participate in can be found by clicking this link. Please visit them and see what others are up to and leave some comments and encouragement. There are many bloggers out there who share their tips, projects, and tutorials to inspire us.
That’s all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
