Today was....Great!

So was yesterday.......... I wrote this last night....I walked away from my computer and forgot about it and when I got up this morning, it was still on my computer waiting for me.......My quilting mini group celebrates birthdays with lunch and fat quarters. Could there be anything better? Plus, Monday is our sewing day, AND I didn't have to work because "Schooool's out for SUMMER!" (Imagine Alice Cooper singing here...) AND I was able to sew with them all morning instead of an hour in the afternoon. I have the best friends. Lookee at the wonderful FQ's they gave me.

One friend found this fabric and said I had to own it. No, I am NOT Texan. Yes, I am from Ohio. Cool huh!

Plus, on Sunday I had enough. I decided I'd had enough of reading about these Mother/Daughter quilt outings, quilt marathons, quilt days. I called Mrs. S and told her that since she lived here and not a hundred miles away, she won! What she asked? She won the ultimate prize to spend time with me and part of that included that she HAD TO learn to quilt (because of all the above reasons) and had no excuses since Schoooool's Out For Summer! So Sunday she came over and picked a pattern and fabrics. Today she learned to use the rotary cutter (how far I've come from my threatening her to NEVER TOUCH my rotary cutter or I'd ground her for a month), press not iron, cut her fabrics and then agonized over placement. Funny thing is that after I explained about accuracy ect., I realized that she is making a wonky log cabin table runner. No rules, no accuracy! LOL!

The better picture didn't come batteries died.
Funny thing is when the camera flashed, she sighed and said, "Hhhhhhh.... MOM! I suppose my big butt is going to appear now on your blog!" YUP! Two things about that though. 1) I didn't manage to get her backside in the shot and 2) Her butt is not big! She has lost 60 lbs!

I think the reason some of us don't visit each other enough is because no one actually PLANS it! What a great opportunity for you and DD to have a get-together and quilt day. Fun, fun, fun! and valuable.

60 lbs? My word! We all know that daughter is a beginner when she thinks we might look at anything other than the fabric she is putting on the board!

School's out! Yay!

I wonder if there is hope for my daughter. So far, she has shown no interest in anything quilt-related.

Gemma's the same. She's not interested in quilting. Well unless finding quilts for me to make for her counts.

love and hugs xxx

That's awesome that you got to start teaching your daughter!
Big Butt please, she looks fabulous!!!!!! And on days when she feels like she doesn't, having lots of fabric around will make her butt look smaller. That's what I try to tell my husband anyway. I look dainty when enveloped by supples. Doesn't look like an excuse she'll be needing though.

Okay, my name is Clevelandgirlie (ahem...) and I MUST have that Ohio fabric. Oh please tell me where I can get some.
