One of the things I love about blogging is that, sometimes, it makes me do something just so I can post a journal for the day. Yesterday was almost a no-accomplishment day but the blog motivated me to do a little quilting.
I didn't get much done because I needed to shop for clothes and that's something that I detest. We have an event coming up soon and I need one of those universal wedding/funeral outfits. I haven't bought clothes like that in at least 10 years and it shows. I mentioned it to my friend and she agreed to guide me through a shopping day. It was somewhat painful, especially for her, but we found a lot of good bargains and I now have some nice enough clothes for events. I'm grateful for her help and guidance. I will say that there was one casual dress on sale at Free People that I loved and she hated and I can't get it out of my head.....I might go back and get it. I'd wear it the next time I see her.
After shopping I stopped by Mom's to do her monthly extermination treatment. I bet you didn't know that I do extermination services! I got home around 6 and after dinner I realized that I didn't have anything to blog about so I decided that I'd go downstairs and, at least, quilt around the gold triangles. I mimicked the spikey motif from around the flower spikes on the inside. That didn't even take 30 minutes.
After finishing that section I realized that I could use the same motif as the background and I got started on the last part of the quilting. I got it about 25% done and I WILL finish this quilt today!
Then we are going to cut down some trees on the property. I love chainsaw day because our property has turned into a jungle in the 20 years we've been here. After that I can spent the weekend on veterans quilts until Super Bowl kickoff.
