Nothing to Speak of

I’ve been hitting things here and there and I’ve not really been able to accomplish or finish anything.

Thursday was a workday and after work I got David to hang my “Playtime” quilt in our spare bedroom before I went to a bee meeting at Cheryl’s house. I sure enjoy looking at this quilt. It was my very first machine applique quilt that I made.

Friday I got some things done and after David got off work, he and I drove over to Cathy’s to hang her new shelf. I got some sewing done, but I’ve only been able to stitch a little here and there. I’m chipping away.

One of the things I had on my list was to make a chocolate sheath cake, we love this cake and since David will be running the Houston marathon on Sunday, I figure he could use a little sugar before and after his run.

In the meantime – I’m still plugging away on my 144 Faceted Jewels batik flying geese… they seem to be like bunnies…multiplying with every cut!

Today we had a meeting at the Painted Pony with a new bee. This group is working with all the half-square triangles we all recently acquired in 2013. It looks like it is going to be a good group and a lot of fun is in the works. I did get to stitch down a few of Primitive Gatherings “Words to Live by” berries during the meeting. I came home and worked a little on the flying geese again, but I’m still not finished. I have to finish cutting them in half, then they need to be ironed, then all trimmed down.

This afternoon, David and I went to see a movie, “The Lone Survivor”. It was a very good movie, but it was very intense. As a mother and a military mom, I can’t imagine losing a child that has served/fought for our country. I think I cried through most of the movie. I’m very thankful for our military. My prayers are with them and their families.

After the movie, David and I did our traditional dinner at Carrabba’s. Oh my goodness, that was delicious as usual.

Now it is time to kick back and relax. I’m truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
Ronda

  1. I think that quilt is one of the prettiest quilts ever made – it looks outstanding and I think I’ll have to come over and see it one day soon. If that chocolate cake is made with buttermilk, its always a crowd favorite. Enjoy today and good luck, David.

      sorry for the late reply. maybe you can come over and get some cake. i rarely have buttermilk so i make “sour milk” which is milk and vinegar. David did qualify for Boston again. more on that adventure later
