Back To Painting
This was the first full week back to school. I have to get myself adjusted again. I did alot of sewing over break and got some great quilts started. I also never finished painting my rooms, which I started this past weekend. I thought my husband was going to have to drive me to the chiropractor. If it did not save me money I would not do it. My neck hurts so bad when I am done. I do love how when you paint it makes everything seem so clean. I ordered I huge wall clock for one of the walls I painted. It will be on my steps going upstairs. It is a black, 31in., and has gold roman numerals. They have great prices at Simply Wall Clocks.
We celebrated my son's b-day at Outback. He was craving their cheese fries. His b-day cake is Jello's No Bake Cheesecake. He loves that and it is so easy to make.
I can't leave out the GATORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I only watched the end because we went to the Predators hockey game the same night. My husband had to see Sydney Crosby of the Penguins.
Now back to quilting. The triangles I have finished are for True Blue. I am using my cream batiks and some beautiful orange, peach, pink, and a little rust batiks. I had them counted but I forgot, there are at least 500 triangles. Maybe more depending how big I go. The other quilt is Brick Path (free pattern) by Amy Butler. When I was sewing the bags my daughter saw this quilt and wanted it. It is beyond easy so I am glad she picked that one. I picked 25 different Lotus fabrics. I ordered most of them from Quilthome. Another great online store I have found.
I hope to get back to blogging more frequently. My one year is coming up. I started blogging on my b-day the 17th which is this saturday.
