Another day staying in the house. I am lazy these days and like to stay home. Is it because I am old now? Or is it because I was out late last night at guild.
Kathy picked me up and we met Barb and Judy for dinner at Minerva's. I had Linguine and garlic prawns for my meal. It was most enjoyable. Then we moved on to the church and guild night. I enjoy seeing everyone that I have missed over the past months when I have been ill or in hospital and not able to get out at night. This was my first trip out and it was such fun. Kathy is a great friend who takes me to these places and makes my life so much more pleasant. Thanks Kathy.
I picked up a quilting book from the very extensive guild library. I can keep this book for the following month and return it at the next meeting. It is a real treat and we can take up to 4 books home for the month. One of the benefits of a great guild is what it offers the members.
We had two ladies who worked in the library for several years. I found it interesting the each of these ladies had daughters who bore twins. Unusual isn't it.
Today I read and worked on my laptop, basically doing very little of anything. I wanted to do some of my heart blocks but it slipped my mind. And tomorrow we have a luncheon date with Bob and Buzz. I am looking forward to that. When we get home maybe I can sew a bit.
I have the greatest thing on my laptop. It is a word correction programme , it fixes my typing mistakes. I have never been a typist so make mistakes. I am a good speller so it is not spelling mistakes that I make but typing ones. So the programme corrects me. Nice isn't it? Every little bit helps.
One of my favourite designs , the Dresden Plate, if I get my act together maybe I can make one of these.
Lovely quilt for Valentine's Day , hearts all round.
Very attractive nine patch quilt and so easy too. The squares border is quite nice too and adds the finishing touch to the quilt.
I don;t know where this is but after Hurricane Katrina I was in Louisiana and saw a car in a tree in the very large swamp there. It is hard to imagine the power of a hurricane but this picture gives you a small idea.
Time to go folks. Have a great evening.
