Blogging hasn’t happened lately because of driving my BIL around while he waits for the suspension on his driver’s license to be lifted, visiting my sister in the nursing home, and entertaining company. Out-of-town relatives have come to visit my sister and I have enjoyed having them stay here.
I also loved having my same-time-next-year friends here last week. Four women who have been coming every year for at least the past 30 years. We laugh and talk and share and shop and eat and laugh and talk. Sooooooo much fun!
They also treat me like a Queen and even gave me a crown this year – made out of pink foam and sporting curly ribbons. (I bet you are all jealous.)
While the gals were here, we went to my favorite local quilt shop. Did I need fabric? NO. Did I buy fabric? YES. Is there any among us that can resist? The red and green fat quarters are because I wanted them, the Kaffee Fasset fabric is because it needed to be in my home, and the Christmas bundle is a table topper kit because ….uh…..because I might run out of projects before Christmas. (in 2072 maybe.) Ah, but it sure is fun to get new fabric.
My cousin also gave me nine 2-1/2 strips of batiks to make a Sudoku puzzle quilt. I played with it today and it is going to be fun and colorful. I love batiks.
