Today was a very good day! I had to run snacks to Hunter's school for his snack time and right after I got back home, my brother, John showed up. He had to take off work today for some stuff he had to do this morning. I was very surprised. He spent several hours with me and it was very nice. We talked about a lot of things from when we were little to our lives now. It was a very precious visit for me and I hate for him to leave. The sad part of all of this is...he only lives 20 minutes from me and this is only our second visit year. I guess our lives are just very busy. But we promised that would change.
This is what I got in the mail this morning. "Sew One and You're Done" I really like this book and saw several patterns that I think I will make. They look very simple to put together.
I also recieved a great package from Maureen. THANK YOU SO MUCH! Several patterns for tablerunners, a quilt pattern and a Halloween Wallhanging. Honestly, I plan on making all of these, sometime. Maybe not this week but I loved them all. And to beat it all she even copied them in COLOR, how sweet is that???
No sewing today, but I did get 15 more nine patch blocks done last night before bed. Today I have been working on some pins for the cheerleaders and football players parents to wear for the homecoming night. This is for a school in WV. I used to live there a long time ago when I was married to my first husband and my EX-sister-in-law called me this past weekend and asked if I would make them. I used to do this all of the time. I sold them and made pretty good money doing it. So I have 30 pins to make and I will be getting $150. So that will take up the next couple of days. Then she said that Basketball season was starting on Saturday and they want me to make pins and hairbows for that too. I hate making these things but I keep telling myself "It is quilting money"
