I’m still here, but I was semi-cut off from civilization for a while… yet again. We lost power when some severe weather rolled through Wednesday. That was super frustrating because A. I needed to go grocery shopping, B. I can’t machine quilt and C. No Internet. I worked at the shop Wednesday and Scott called me as soon as I got out of work to tell me we had lost power. Instead of grocery shopping, I went to the phone store. On the bright side, I finally got my new phone!! The iPhone and I love it!! When we did finally get power back, the Internet was still out. Thursday we had someone come by the house and he thought the problem may have been some equipment outside that was damaged. He replaced the damaged parts. Hopefully, it works because the Internet seems to finally be working again.
I do currently have a work in progress going. I have a beautiful quilt on Annie from a client from the guild I belong to.
I love all the fabrics. She used a jelly roll and some yardage. The quilt has a very romantic cottage feel. Becky, my client wanted an allover quilt pattern that wasn’t heavy quilting. Heavy quilting??? I asked her what she meant because that can have different meanings to different people. She meant heavy, tight stippling. That’s what I thought she meant, but it’s good to clarify. 🙂 I thought that meandering leaf design I was doodling would be a good fit.
I think it’s looking very pretty so far. I’ll be taking if off the frame tonight.
Today, I will be going to the Friendship Strip Exchange Sit and Sew at the shop and then I HAVE to buy groceries!! Tonight we have a big night of watching baseball planned. The Detroit Tigers are playing the Arizona Dianmondbacks in Detroit. The starting pitcher tonight for Arizona is a young man from our very small town!!! He went to high school with my sister. Josh was called up to the majors in April. It’s very exciting for everyone here!! News crews were in town yesterday to show where Josh grew up. There is always a huge sense of pride when you grow up in a small town. Josh will be pitching against the Tiger’s Ace pitcher tonight. What a game it’s going to be!! Normally, we are big Tigers fans, but tonight we are Josh Collmenter fans! Good Luck, Josh!!!
Note: The other day Mary Lou Weidman sent me a very heartfelt email telling me that she had recently had a terrible time with her blog. She could no longer make any updates to it and eventually had to completely start over with a completely new blog. How awful! Make sure you stop by Mary Lou’s new blog, Mary Lou and Whimsy Too and say “hi!” I’ve also listed her new blog on my sidebar.
