A Sew Day

Today Mardi and I were test students for Lorene for a class she'll be teaching soon. We sewed at my house and that's my "Over The River"quilt behind Mardi, I finished it this summer; don't you just love it??  I do! We didn't finish our project but we did learn how to begin and how to finish. Check out a little of our fun time.

Isn't Mardi's pretty.

I did work on my little quilt after the girls left and heres the result.  No borders yet.

With borders.  Cute!

Now I just need to make my quilt sandwich and do a little quilting and I'll be ready for Valentine's Day.  Christmas you say, oh I think I'll be ready.  :)

What did I do today?

Isn't it frustrating when a person thinks they are all organized and ready to do something and then it doesn't work!  That was the beginning to my day.  I thought I was taking a EQ-7 class only to discover I had not reactivated my lap top.  I guess that means I should be creating more via EQ-7 than I have been.  A kind student in our class shared her lap top w/ me and I took lots of notes.  Now, does anyone think I'll know what my notes mean in about two weeks?!

My other activity today was to help a friend paint her new patio home.  There were four of us painting and still only managed to get one room painted.  Of course we didn't get the trim done but that's for tomorrow.  Now I have paint drips on the top of my left foot and am hoping it comes off!  lol

I've been busy!

The UPS guy brought me a beautiful box of goodies, can you guess what was in the box?
                                                                  Beautiful apples!
What does a girl do with beautiful apples you ask...cut them up and put them in a pot!

Then when the apples are cooked, put them in pint jars, give the pretty apples a water bath for 30 minutes and then........
