This morning I had to take Andrew into town for his chest x-ray. His appointment with the Heart Specialist is Friday morning. So I have to take a copy of the x-ray with us. So today was the first time that I had been out since I had made my new purse on Sunday. As you know we quilter's are our own worst critics. I am always paranoid when someone else looks at my work. Even though I love my purse and was very proud that I had made it, I'm always afraid that someone else with find something that I have done wrong...I guess it's just me. I had to go to Medical Records to sign a release form to get the copy of his x-ray and the lady at the front desk went wild over my purse. At first I didn't know what to say except "Thank You" she asked where I had got it and I told her I made it. She looked at me sorta weird and asked if she could see it. And then she called for the other ladies to come and look at it. They all loved it!!! I was very proud!! I don't care what it is...purse or quilt, when someone compliments your work it really makes you feel good. But I think Andrew might have been just a little bit embarassed. :) So "Thank You" for the Bucket Tote pattern! You have made my day!!!
I stopped by Walmart to pick up some milk while I was out and they still have some of their sewing supplies on clearance. So of course, I just had to pick these little goodies up. Who knows I may use them someday.
After coming back home, I decided I would pick out a book to read while I waited for the next step for the Orange Crush quilt. Well, as you can see I have a ton of Historical Romance Novels but for the life of me, I just couldn't find anything that caught my eye. There are two more rows behind these and then I also have 5 Avon boxes full of books too. I haven't read any of them!!! When I do read one, I throw it in a box and either let mom read them or take them to the bookstore to trade back in...I'm thinking I may need to clear out some books to make more room for fabric.... :)
Puppy Update!!! There are now 3 of them. Two black ones and the brown one. The sweetest thing is...my sister's dog just had a litter of pups a few weeks ago and she lives on the property that connects with mine. Her dog is coming over and letting them nurse!!! We thought about moving the puppies over there with hers but I don't think she liked that idea so we will just let her keep making the trip back and forth as long as she wants to. I got them to eat a little so they should be fine.
So now, I guess instead of reading I will clean house until the next step for the Orange Crush is posted....HURRY, BONNIE, I HATE CLEANING!!!!!!!
