Well that weekend went fast!

Saturday I went to visit my son and stopped at the quilt shop for their end of the month sale. I was told by my friend, Joyce, that the owner let anybody who came in the shop on Friday for the end of the bolts sale to go ahead and buy so the bolts were already picked over for Saturday. The sale wasn't suppose to start until Saturday. Here is what I did get.

Once I got back to the house is was cleaning time for the company that was coming Sunday. Bailey who belongs to the MQG came over Sunday afternoon and I helped her with learning free motion machine quilting. I forgot to take a picture of the quilts she brought over. The one she quilted with a walking foot and did a wonderful job! The other one she made these slice and switch nine patch with some wonderful orange fabrics and set them together with white. I helped her pin baste it and she was digging my big 8' x 8' table for that job! She had to use her dining room table or the wood floor to pin baste and of course worries about scratching the table or floor. I told her she could come over anytime and use my table. Baily is going to come back over with the orange quilt and I am going to show her how to make sewn miter corners for her binding. Right now she folds the corners into a miter so she was interested in learning another method. Bailey brought me a loaf of zucchini bread tied up in one of the orange fabrics she used in her quilt. I had a piece for breakfast and it is tastey!

I did work on machine quilting the turquoise and brown quilt between all the other stuff. I am about 3/4 done.

This week is going to be busy. I been slammed at work. I am taking Friday off to work Friday and Saturday at Miller's Dry Goods in Charm, OH for their anniversary sale. 30% off on fabric, thread, books, patterns, kits, and batting. It is always a good time to see everyone after 6 months since I last worked in October. I just hope I can handle being on my feet all day for two days. My stamina is still not where it was before my surgery. I did buy a new pair of Dr. Scholles gel inserts for my shoes since I will be on my feet. I put them in and what a differnce! I think they will help a lot.
