    My day was wonderful. Well I'm talking yesterday-today is just starting. I was able to go to the NW Quilt Expo Portland, OR and spend most of the day walking around with two of our board members. We enjoyed all the quilts and vendors. Did a Costco and grocery shop on the way home. Decided on my way the car should be washed - made a quick right hand turn and- oh so nice- I sat back and relaxed for the three min. during the wash. After the car was unloaded -while putting away the groceries made a quick macaroni salad and then decided to enjoy the last of the 80 degree weather! I then fired up the lawn mower. You all have to realize we live in the country. So at about 4:30 I would mow one lawn since DH wasn't home from working the tasting room yet. Well at 5 he still wasn't home so I thought I could do one more while I still had some energy left. Then 5:30 came around so I kept going and needless to say I was able to mow all three lawns (2 1/2 miles later) Oh they look so nice and ohhhhhhh I was so tired! Had a very eventful day with alot accomplished!

    Cathy, I am so like you. Every thing you wrote, has and will happen to me. I am too stubborn to give in and let it go. But I do throw my wicked little block away after too many tries, but I go back and start a new one. Mostly I let things set a day or two and then try again with much more success. I do have dementia so things are hard for me at times. My mother and I were never close, but in her last few years, she taught me how to hand quilt and now I am a third generation quilter and my DD is a fourth generation quilter.

    One thing you can fix is the strings clinging to the babking of your quilt by buying a pet hair sticky roller. It will clean it up quickly. :thumbup:

    Ruthieg, I have to admire the tenacity and courage you show when you start a new project. It can't be easy for you!

    I started teaching my granddaughter how to sew this last summer, but then my Mom's condition deteriorated very quickly. We just didn't have the time. I hope that we can pick up where we left off next summer. If she picks up quilting, she will be 4th generation quilter, too. She's more artistic than I am, so if she gets into quilting, I might see some really amazing work from her. It's really nice to pass down a skill and interest through generations.

    Take care!

    Thanks so much for the great laugh and the quick dose of reality because it sure does happen to us all. But I have to give you kudos for not giving up and continuing on with that dang block cutting and alignment. Mine would still be sitting there waiting or would be misaligned for sure! :D

    My mommy took completely apart a dress I made in 7th grade. I did a great job on the dress, but when it came time to model it.....opppps to small. 50 years later, I still can't make a dress to fit....so a quilting I will go.

    Well Cathy at least you're persistant. My mom did nothing creative. I did have an aunt who sewed and showed me how to make some simple clothes one summer. :thumbup:
