Mail Call - 12/14/11

Looky what I got in the mail yesterday!!



KatieM. sent me some thread bits and pieces -



OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHH My Precious - ;))

They are SO PRETTY -

And SO SHINY -

BEAUTIFUL!!

Almost made me want to stop and make a Thread Bowl right then and there -

Almost -

But I was a good girl -

I had a chore on my list for the day - and I did my chore -

I hemmed the curtains that have been hanging in our bedroom for the past who knows how many years - the curtains that have always been too long - just kinda “puddled” on the floor - and always looking “wrong” - not pretty like they do in all the magazines - and THAT was finally getting on my nerves - SO - down they came (with the help of Grandson #1) and to the sewing room they went. Now - don’t get me wrong - I don’t mind hemming curtains - I made the curtains for every window in this house (except THOSE) - but that was a LONG time ago - and I don’t wanna do that anymore -

I want to work on Orca Bay -

But I was a good girl - and I did my chore -

And THEN I played with Orca Bay - ;))

I’m still messing with the Part 3 - HST -
But - hey - I AM making progress -
And that’s what counts, right??


Now if I could just figure out a way to make the pieces sew themselves -
That would help a BUNCH!! ;))

Especially ‘cuz Part #5 comes out tomorrow - YIKES!!

And I have some PRETTY - NEW - THREADS - to sew -


Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew - SOMETHING!!

  1. Orca Bay is a very nice way to reward yourself. ;)

  2. I get you about just wanting to work on Orca Bay. I had to set it aside because I MUST get the tree up today!! All the kids, grands & greats will be here in a week and they expect Christmas decorations. I just don't know what's wrong with kids these days. Don't they know I have to sew? ;|

  3. I'm glad you like thos threads because I wouldn't know what to do with them! (I know, I know - thread bowl...is that where you put all your threads in a big bowl and hope the cats don't eat them and regurgitate them on your bed in the middle of the night? No? I didn't think so...) If you figure out a way to get quilts to sew themselves, though, please do share. I think there are quite a few of us who could use that skill.

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
