Micro Handles

I’m not sure how I’d be able to do all these pebbles without the micro handles DH made for me.

These are the ones you can order from Tin Lizzie.. I’m sure I told y’all about my hands..

I can rest my palm on the ball and I don’t get the cramping that a handle sends me to.  With all these pebbles I’m grateful I have my handles instead of theirs!

 I’m having fun.. I still have a bunch to learn (or re-learn). I forget more than I remember but I am loving the process!

I’m Late, I’m Late, I’m Late

Does that explain a bit about how this day has gone? My Blog is usually posted every morning but I have been on the run since 7:30 am.  I just got to sit a minute.

So I’m sitting here staring at a blank screen.. are y’all out there or did you fill your day with errands too?

Well, I want to quilt.. I need to hear Vern humming me a tune. I’ve only a few circles to go and I so want to start with a few thread painted bubbles. I’ve doodled and planned all that I can until I get this quilt ready and loaded onto Timmy (Tin Lizzie). But you know I have to confess ( YES, Again!) I seem to have misplaced my metallic thread!

I am beginning to believe there is a black hole that eats things when I’m not looking! I had it out a few days ago to look at the colors and make plans.  Now Poof! It’s gone! It’s not the first thing to disappear.. I’ve had quilt blocks fall of the design wall never to be seen again! I had to make more and no, it was never found. Seriously I was standing there when it happened!

So I may have to get more thread now but I’m not slowing down.. I’ll use silver if I have to at this point! HAH! Well I’m off and running.. still have loads to do before I start dinner.. I found huge pockets of joy during my day today.. I hope you do too!

Happy Anniversary!

Well I’ve been married for 15 years today. WHOO_HOO! Can you believe someone intentionally stayed with me for that long? We’ve actually been together  for 19 years and Ya know what’s really funny? This is the first anniversary in ten years that we actually remembered! It’s usually not until April one of us thinks of it. I only remembered it because Facebook reminded me. But don’t tell him that!

Well I didn’t get a new sewing/embroidery machine… financially not in the cards. I’m selling my Toyota 6 needle single head embroidery machine to add to my savings fund for it though. The dream doesn’t die here! That’s how I got my Tin Lizzie (Timmy).. just kept saving!

Selling for my Duetta Fund

What’s on our agenda? He’s working on cars and I’m quilting! Do we get each other or what? Oh yeah my “baby” got her first car actually it’s a truck. She is very excited to have a way to escape from here!
