Good Morning Everyone...
Your guest blogger is back for another day. First of all, I would like to apologize to yesterday's early morning blog readers. Somehow my finger found the "publish" button a little too soon. (Must not have had enough coffee in the system yet.) Ended up with a premature blog post. Lynn came to my rescue and did an edit quickly.
Yesterday was a very productive day. I stuck to putting baskets together and Lynn finished all the square in a square and started parallel geese. We are on a roll!
Yesterday morning about 10:30 Lynn went to check on little Mazey. She came back upstairs with my "reward" for my morning efforts...a half a cookie! She said something about keeping the troops happy. I have only myself to blame since I did tell her I work cheap!
Since this quilt is eventually going to Houston...Houston we have a problem! In my effort to speed up (to get my other half a cookie), one of my double flying geese ended up "flying south". Now at least I found the problem. Being the honest person that I am (our parents taught us well), I told "the boss". What was I thinking? She said my punishment would be ten lashes with a piece of thread and I would be drawn and fat quartered! Now is that any way to encourage the troops!
Thanks so much for all your welcome comments about yesterdays post! They were very much appreciated! A special thank you to NMSue for our afternoon comic relief! Lynn and I were "in stitches" reading the dog eating underwear story! We were laughing so hard we could hardly see to sew!
The components aren't in the right order, they are just stuck on the design wall so we could see how much we accomplished.
In all honesty, we had a terrific day! There is no better day than getting to quilt with my sister! We even had the chance after dinner to go see all the kids and grandkids. Lynn's grandson was at soccer practice and the girls were cheerleading. And now, it's back to work. I can hear those 2 remaining baskets calling my name. I wonder what my morning "reward" will be today?
