Well hello! I'm back among the living somewhat now...finally! Whew! I actually got out and about today!
I made a trip out to see my buddy, Twyla, out at her quilt shop, Quilted Memories. It's with sadness that she has decided to lock up shop....and get her life back! Sadness comes from the fact that she had the most wonderful selection of fabrics, and it was always fun to head out to visit her there!
And now madness ensues! You would think we were never going to see a yard of fabric again!
I've done some damage...in person and over the phone with her! And I picked up that lovely red wire basket too! She's selling her shop fixtures and such, so I snagged that. And when I got home, I was sorry that I left the other so another phone call out to the shop has the matching basket waiting. This is insanity!
Gladness for Twyla though. It's rough being married to a shop 24/7. She was a hands-on owner, and so there was never time for her to go do fun things with friends. Now she has that time! We got a taste of it when we met for lunch today. That was nice! I'm glad for her and what lies ahead!
Gladness also because I have FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY put the Ohio Star quilt top together!
I haven't been coherent long enough to do long stints of sewing, but finally finished it up this evening!
Nice to get this one done!
All the foreign matter was removed from my face yesterday and though things are still sore and tender, I'm already breathing differently! And WOWZERS! This gives horseradish a whole new UMPH!!! It's been a rough week, but I'm hopeful it was all worth it!
And now I can get back to life...more Gladness!!
