I’ve had a hectic day so far, which is why I’m late posting.

DH had some good news and some bad news yesterday when he came home.

Good News Bad Nes

“Gallery Owner: I have some good news and some bad news.
Quilter: What’s the good news?
Gallery Owner: The good news is that a man came in here today asking if the price of your quilts would go up after you die. When I told him they would he bought every one of your quilts.
Quilter: That’s great! What’s the bad news?
Gallery Owner: The bad news is that man was your doctor!”


No, his good news was that he was given a tip after doing one job, so we were going to go out to eat! Yay!! The bad news was, he broke a blade on his mower and I had to run to the repair shop to buy more blades. Boo!

So that is what I spent the morning doing.

Now I need to get back to work on the bonus room! It’s slow going because there’s this thing called “Life” that keeps interrupting.

I had to can green beans yesterday:

These will be yummy this winter.

Before I go today, I wanted to make note about the Bonnie quilt that I’m working on. I’m pretty sure that most of the quilters out there know that it’s a good idea to spin your seams on a four patch unit, so that it lies flatter.

spinning seams

Well, when I pressed the seams of the block, which is a larger four patch, I did the same thing. Now when I sew my blocks together, the seams should all nest together nicely. And that is my tip for the day!!!
