First off, I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We certainly did and had alot to be thankful for! Since mom was gone, Chantal (my sister) and I had to do Thanksgiving dinner! We were stressed that it would not turn out that great, because we are so used to mom doing the major cooking but all went very well! It was a nice little cozy dinner for Chantal, my two boys, Richard and me!!!! We ate soooo much, as soon as we got up from the table everyone started falling asleep!! :) Of course I had to grab the camera! Here is a cute photo of Chantal snoozing on my couch, she will kill me for put this photo on here. :) And about the time I snapped this photo of Richard the flash from the camera woke him up. I promise he doesn't always look this stupid! :) And here is Donkey, can you tell he got his belly full?
Now that Thanksgiving is over, I can get my sewing machine back out! That is the big problem when you have nowhere to sew except for the kitchen table. I probably will not do it tonight, maybe tomorrow, I am still trying to recover from yesterday. Not alot going on here on the Layne Farm this evening. It is after dark and hubby is still out riding one of the horses, he should be home soon. Andrew went to his dad's house yesterday after our dinner :( so right now it is just me and Hunter. May try to do some handquilting later tonight, there is a western coming on tv tonight that we have not seen yet so I will probably work on that while watching the movie. I can't wait to get this quilt quilted.
Speaking of this quilt.....Brenda if you read this you know what I am talking about! :) I must be slow at handquilting because this lady at quilt guild brought a quilt in at our last meeting and it was all handquilted and I must say some very lovely quilting, tiny, straight stitches! Very nice! Anyway, I asked her how long it took her to do all of that quilting and she said "3 weeks"!!!! I thought I would die! It was a bedsize quilt and the quilting was wonderful!!! I have been working on this thing for a month and I still am only about 1/2 done with it! So for all of you hand quilters out there, on the average, how long does it take you?
