Taking a few rest days to from all the traveling these past two days. We are suppose to hear Monday if we get the house in Lafayette :) Tuesday I am picking up the Patriotic Mystery Quilt from the LAQ. Then I will work on the binding and can show off my finished quilt.. :) I purchased the book Quilts for Rosie and Im thinking of joining the quilt along when it begins still on the fence though until I see the patterns. Have a wonderful day and safe travels for those on the road. :)
I went ta Brady th'sweekend. Had a good time. Took a load o' furniture, made plans, changed other plans, discussed landscapin', cleaned & sat on the deck while the sun went down. :)
Dublb sounds like you had a really busy weekend. Im feeling rested this morning so Im hoping to have a productive day at the sewing machine.
Have a awesome day everyone. :) :) :) :) :)
My goodness you ladies have been busy!
Jenniky - Your quilt is really going to be lovely! I can see why you can't stop working on it!
PatriciaFaye - You quilts are great! Thanks for sharing.
Well, have to get ready for work. Have a great day all!
Im inviting Players andLurkers to the Orphaned Blocks QAYG Challenge. If you are interested in exploring this technique stop by for a chat or quick Hello. :)
Jenniky ... yea to your new thread/challenge! I won't be a serious player for now, though will join the thread as I want to learn all I can! I hope that today was only good news about your new Home Sweet Home!
DublB ... Lots of work? Glad that you took some downtime to enjoy the sunsets!
Nursie ... how's your DD doing? Any chance of you flying over to visit her?
QuiltE - ;) We are still waiting to hear. I called earlier to verify they had received all the paperwork which they have. The rep said they would call us most likely at the end of the business day. Im thinking that means I will hear from them tomorrow. :thumbdown: It's ok though, I have lots to keep me busy. If its not meant to be ... oh well... Im sure something better must be waiting around the corner. We will just have to go looking at more places. We really did not expect to find such a perfect match for us on the first place we visited. :cool:
Oh Jenniky ... I know the sitting and waiting is horrendous, but please don't consider it a no-go yet. Remember to them, it's just another house and what do they care about timing details. I wonder if people like that, have any sense of this when they are house-shopping? Or if it's just another house ..............
Whereas to you, it's the perfect home and hopefully we'll only hear good news!
QuiltE: Thanks for asking about DD. She has been back in Auckland for a week or 2 and other than the fact that she got a cold right after her return, she is doing well and finishing up her Masters Thesis. She did find a good infectious disease doc to follow up with, so that makes me happy. We have been in NZ 2 times, and probably won't be back before she returns to the states. However, she will be home at end of September for her older sisters wedding. Oh, and that DD is having carpal tunnel surgery on Thursday. These offspring will be the end of me yet! lol
Jenniky - Sounds like a great challenge and although I won't be able to participate fully, I certainly will be watching avidly from the sidelines! Best of luck with ur home. DH and I will most likely be house hunting within the next year. Maybe you can give me some tips.
