Poking Along....

Yesterday I worked on my Civil War Love Letter quilt! I want to get all of those blocks sewn together so bad, but with 121 blocks of it, I start getting a headache. So I stopped as soon as my head started hurting....quilting is supposed to be fun, not painful!!! :) Anyway, I will get it done later. Actually right now I have 8 of the 11 rows sewn together and then I will be adding two borders.

Mom left for work today! :( She will be back home in 28 days! My sister and I both count the days down. I talked with mom earlier this evening and she sounded really tired.

Oh some good news!!! I finally got my new car key!! If you remember back on December 22nd, I broke my key off in the ignition...Richard had to take it all apart and I had to order a key from the dealer because the key has some kind of sensor on it. Anyway I got it today!!!! Now I can stop borrowing everyone's cars! Also my phone went out about the same time and I have had the phone company out here working on the phone lines for the past year! My phone is still going on and off! Thank goodness for cell phones!!!! The phone repair men came out here last week and told me it was fixed but about an hour after they left, the phone went out again. They are coming back tomorrow!!!! Wish me luck!

Today I decided to brave the big pile of quilt tops again! :) I miscounted the other day when I counted...today I counted 75!!! So I will have to change my sidebar and add the other one. I know have them all measured, some I put backings with them, and they are all now ready for quilting! Since mom bought me the huge roll of batting for Christmas I am ready to go! I actually had backings for about 20 of them! So those will be done first! I will work on backings for the others a little at a time. I will either buy backings one at a time or piece them from my stash. But at least I have a good start on the backings right now.

And last but not least....here is a photo of Hunter at his Christmas Dance at school. He is such a little sweetie! He brought tears to my eyes when he came home from school the day of the dance and started getting ready, he asked me to show him how to slow dance with a girl!!!! And he is 6!!!! So I showed him but then he said "That is how old people dance" :( As you can see in the photo they are dancing quiet close to be only 6! And that is NOT how I showed him to dance! :)

Hopefully tomorrow I will have some quilty photos to show! Richard has to work 1/2 day tomorrow and I have to go into town to pick up feed and buy groceries! :( If the weather is fair we will work on the house when we get back home. We have started on the porch of it, I will have to take a new photo tomorrow!

That Hunter is going to have the girls flocking in a couple of years. Can't wait to see the porch photos. I thought the window was beautiful - this house certainly will be a joy to your family when its done.

I was thinking yesterday if you had your CWLL blocks together. I am sure you girls dread for your mom to go back to work each time. Time seems to pass fast. I am glad you got your new key. Thatis a lot of quilts 2 quilt. I quilted 83 last year. Well some of them were small ones.

Kristie, as you are younger than I am, your plans make me tired! I am envious.

The photo of Hunter is precious! He will be a wonderful husband someday, I know it! He is a cutie, and the little girl is precious too.

I can't wait to see more pictures of your house. Take care!
