Checking In.....

I thought I should check in to say hello to everyone.  One reason I haven't been posting is that, for some reason,  I can't send pictures from my phone to either my computer or to someone else's phone in a text.  I just haven't had time to go to the phone store to ask them what is wrong.

I've been doing a lot of sewing.  Mostly working on blocks of the month but I have a few quilts to bind.  One BOM is for my quilt guild and also the Globetrotting BOM program that Pat Sloan has designed.  Have you heard about it?  I had to follow along since there are literally thousands of quilters world wide doing it and I did't want to be left out.  You can read about it here.  Five blocks have been revealed so far but it's not to late to get started. There are eight more to go.

We had friends over yesterday and had such a nice time visiting.  I had taken them to the airport last week and picked them up yesterday.  We only live 20 minutes from the airport so when they travel I babysit their truck and they don't have to pay for airport parking.  Bill was nice enough to help us with a little project in the house that needed done which was so helpful!  When we moved here our refrigerator was too tall to fit under the cupboard so for two years it stuck out too far.  Now it's all fixed and, boy howdy, does my kitchen seem bigger!!!

We're having gorgeous weather.  I'm getting ready for my sister's visit so I'm in clean mode.  Today I had to wash the windows on the back of the house.  One day I looked out and thought it was raining as there were "drops" on the windows.  Turned out to be a dust/dirt storm and my windows were just filthy, including the ones I had just washed!!!!  I'm really looking forward to Janice's visit.  We always have so much fun.  I was thinking I should go get some cough drops and throat spray because of all the talking and laughing we'll be doing.  Janice is really anxious to meet Mollie.  She is the quintessential dog person - she hasn't met one she doesn't love.  I think she's up to 8 or 9 now.  All rescues of some sort or another.

Gotta go.  I heard the washer go off so I need to finish the laundry, air out the rooms, fuss around to make sure everything is perfect.  You know the drill.

Have a happy week - don't work too hard.

Isn't it great when you have friend that help back and forth? When we lived in Hawaii, my friend and I always did airport duty for each other--even if it was a late/early flight. How great to get the fridge issue fixed, too. Have a great visit!

Ooooh Miss Jean -- that BOM from Pat Sloan looks like lots of fun. You must show us your blocks!

I hope you have a wonderful visit with your sister. I'm sure you two can get into lots of trouble LOL!

Hi Jean,
I want to see your quilt. I just bought enough fabric to make 10 baby blankets...I am going to be one busy girl.
How fun a visit with your sister, there nothing like a sister...
Have fun, I know you will.
Hugs, Elizabeth
