I feel like the energizer bunny. I just keep quilting and quilting... I finally finished quilting the borders on the apple quilt. How about this for a name: Apple Pi. First, because of the apple theme and then Pi because I've always heard "easy as pie", but this has been a long and hard project, so I thought about the numeric Pi, which goes on forever. Anyway, don't need a name till end of the year, but this has been the working name that's stuck the longest. I still have considerable work to do on it, giving it those finishing touches and fixes that I hope will make it fare well in a show, but now I've got all my safety pins out of it and I need to get them into that cmas applique quilt and get it started. I know that Rob really wants to use that this year and I'd sure like to finish it for him. I have another cmas themed top finished, that I really like. I'd love to get it quilted and hang it in the sewing room, but I know I'll not be able to finish two in time. Maybe I'll just hang the top. Shame on me!
Sydney's birthday went off without a hitch yesterday. She nearly drove us crazy wanting to open gifts, but we got her to hold off until after dinner. She asked for biscuits and white gravy for her special meal. I did my best, but my biscuits were flat and dry as sand and the gravy was lumpy. Guess I'm way outta practice with that kind of cooking. But, it was okay and she seemed happy and even asked for more biscuits for breakfast this morning.
Tomorrow, we're going to take her to the mall to get her ears pierced. It will only be the second time we've taken her there. I don't do well in crowds and Rob is happy to shop anywhere else so the poor kid never gets to go. Wish us luck. I worry that we'll get one done and she'll chicken out on the second one. Hope not.
Take care and I hope we all get a lot of quilting done this weekend. Lane
