Sorry I wasn’t here yesterday. The weather conditions definitely affect the internet and I was still having problems with it. Thankfully, it seems to be working well today!

Today is the 30th anniversary of the marriage of DH and I!!! Can you imagine – I’ve put up with him for thirty years!?! Of course, he’s had to put up with me for the same amount of time!

Who is that skinny girl!?!

We don’t have any definite plans for a getaway, but we’ll be going out to dinner this evening. Maybe Friday we’ll hop in or on one of our vehicles and head out, but we’re going to wait to see about the weather.

Since we’re going out this evening, I guess I’m not going to make it to my quilt group meeting. AGAIN! I missed it last month for some silly reason and even though it’s not a silly reason this time, I’m still going to miss it. Bummer!

We’ve got a new member that I haven’t met yet and I was hoping to do that this month. I was also hoping to have my log cabin flimsy done today, so that I could take it to the meeting. Then I realized today was not going to work. I’ll HAVE to go to next month’s meeting no matter what!!!

It’s getting there but, obviously, it is not completely finished yet. This is almost one half of the quilt up on the design wall. The other half is all assembled. As soon as I get all these blocks finished and assembled, I’ll join the two halves. Maybe I’ll have it finished before the end of the week! I want to take it to a meeting to get some ideas for quilting it. There are so many seams in this thing; I am not sure how I should quilt it.

I’m still working VERY slowly on getting the studio cleaned up. It doesn’t help that I have so many projects that I’d rather sew. I don’t spend very much time cleaning and then I HAVE to start sewing on something!! But I am still keeping at it! One of the things that is so time consuming is getting my scraps under control. I try to spend a little time each day trimming them into usable sizes. I’m also thinking ahead and sorting out the strips that I will need for the Bonnie Hunter workshop in July. I decided on red as the main color for the “Blue Ridge Beauty” quilt that we will be working on. So any red and background scraps get cut down and set aside for that project.

Isn’t this going to be stunning in red!?!

Well, that’s about it for now. I need to take care of some things before DH comes home and we go out to celebrate.

Peace
