Marilyn: Hi Vicky! I've got another box/bag of scraps for you! Would you like them?
Me: YES MA'AM!!! When would you like me to come & get them?
Marilyn: Tomorrorw around 1pm ok?
Now Marilyn is the one that I talk about in my presentations. She is the one that gave me the microwave box full of scraps. Well she didn't disappoint this time either. She filled a contractors trash bag & 2 smaller bags full.
She lives about 45 min to the east of me & I made it to her house on time. Chatted for a few minutes, loaded the car & I was off. Well I was supposed to meet some friends who were in from out of town for an early dinner around 5 or so South of Kansas City. I thought why go all the way back home from here to turn around & come back the same direction? Why not go another 45 min to the east & go to Missouri Star in Hamilton MO? I thought it was a spectacular idea! Every time I go there they are always changing things up. I'm not a yardage girl, I'm a scrapper but there are some things that I will buy yardage of & that is my Kona Black (because I've used up the majority of my black scraps) & anything that has the Eiffel Tower on it. I have loved the Tower for as long as I can remember & have been collecting fabrics for some quilty project down the road. I found this yardage! It was new & some of it needed to come home with me.
I had a great time & was able to meet my friends on time & had a great dinner catching up. It wasn't long enough, it never is though.
Yesterday was filled with church & taxes. Today well I'm hoping that today will be filled with some sewing. I've got a deadline on this string quilt & it needs to get finished! I've made more progress since this picture was taken but here's a glimpse of how it's turning out.
My dear husband is home this week. He's taking a week of vacation so that he can get some things done on the farm that require his practiular set of skills. I'm hoping that he'll be able to cross lots of things off of his to do list. I might be learning how to build fence & stretch wire this week. All good skills to have.
I hope that y'all are having a great first week of spring. It looks to be a beautiful day here. I'm off to do more laundry & SEW!!!! Have a good day! More later on,
