Last night, I took the mini quilt to guild for show and tell. It was a real ego boost. I walked up to the mic, said my name and they unfolded it and I watched the ladies lean forward and all say “ooh!” at the same time. They didn’t hear what I said after that, which was “I went to Sally Collins’ class last month. I think I liked it.”
Heading back to my seat was like walking a runway. I’d have to stop every few feet so someone could get a close look at it.
Made me feel good.
Yesterday was also the day to visit with the doctor about my upcoming test. Okay, y’all. that doctor was a freak. And, I’m not sure what I should expect from somebody that does 50-60 of these procedures a week. For 15 minutes, he did a stand up comedy routine about it, including every butt, rear, and behind joke ever written and some I think he made up himself. I just sat there with my mouth open, waiting for him to let the shoe drop and for him to tell me something bad. He never did. So, at the end, I thanked him for being funny because it helped me relax. Even though relaxed looked really tense right that minute.
He was cool. Someone will call today to schedule. and, then it will be done.
I also wanted to show this. It’s a Linus afghan. My valuable fabric storage space is being used to store yarn, so I’ve decided to make up a bunch of afghans and move it out. This is the first one.
It’s huge and it’s heavy. The stripes didn’t photograph well, but they’re orange, brown, raspberry and dark green. It’s pretty cool and very masculine. And, big enough for a teen.
Next one is yellow and grey and white. Very modern color combination and done up in a baby afghan. But, very soft and thin yarns. But, before I can start that, I have a small quilt to hand quilt, so you’ll likely be seeing pictures of it as I make decisions.
Everybody have a great Tuesday. So much to do, so little time. I remember when I was a Martha Stewart-ite and spent all my time keeping house and making things out of leftover other things.
I really think I’m a more fun person now.
