I got up super early this morning so that I could do some machine quilting. I had no more than got started when Richard needed to plug up his welder. See...my machine is upstairs in the house and we don't have electric in there yet so I have to run his big cord up there, but he needed to finish his trailer because he needs to use it. So I'm going to try to finish it up in the morning. It is hard having to share the electric cord. :(
After cleaning the house I sewed some star blocks. I noticed that I messed it up a little bit but I'm not going to change it now. I have all 25 of my churn dash blocks finished and I had planned on doing the centers beige, not sure how I ended up doing them ALL navy! Oh well life goes on, it just changes the whole look of the quilt but that is okay because I am not changing them now!
I don't have them sewn together they are just laying there. I still have several more navy star blocks to do but you can get an idea of how it is going to look. Tomorrow is actually Hunter's birthday! So tomorrow will be spent with lots of "Hunter time" It's hard to believe that my baby will be 9 years old.
Before I go I have a little "funny" to tell you. As you know we had Hunter's birthday part last Saturday evening but we also had a wedding to go to earlier that day so it was a very busy day for us. Now most times when I am home and not going anywhere my hair is up in a ponytail and no makeup. So I was in the bathroom and had just fixed my hair and was finishing my makeup when Hunter popped in and said "Mommy you look beautiful"
I know it is sad that he doesn't see me fixed up more often but I am still far from BEAUTIFUL. LOL! He went into the living room where Richard was and I heard him say "Daddy, when mommy comes in here you need to tell her how pretty that she looks" LOL! So when I did walk into the living room Richard was being silly and whistled. Now here is the funny part...
I was standing there putting my jewelry on and Hunter walked up to me and it went like this....
Hunter: "Excuse me, are you from Tennessee?"
Hunter: "I was just wondering because you are the only TEN that I SEE!"
LOL! Now is that a line or what?????? We all had a good laugh!!!
