Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
I hope you remembered to wear your green today. :) This weekend was long...it rained quite a bit. Billy and I got haircuts yesterday. He hates to get his hair cut...we go to the same lady everytime..she is so good to him. She takes her time and doesn't mind the screaming, fussing, or escape attempts. Plus, she gives him a gazillion lollipops. She is a doll. :) I'm two steps away from finishing my quilt squares....it has been hell...sheer hell. With all the fabric mistakes, finding the sewing machine manual and the parts that Bill decided to play with, retrheading bobbin and machine.....things just haven't gone right. I am no longer afraid of my sewing machine.....I'm glad I procrastinated/screwed up the fabric...so that I had to use my sewing machine. It isn't bad at all. :) I need to press some of the sewn pieces before I proceed to finish sewing them into squares. They aren't perfect (I'm sorry to the eight other ladies in my group), but I made them myself...happy day. I have to do it a little at a time....today was Tuesday...short school day..so I had to stop. Maybe when Clark gets home I can work on them a little more....I need a Billy backup. I just listed a few more books in the shop...just in case you didn't get any the other day. I still have three more books to list...I forgot to write down the author. Those of you who are hard-core Marie Antoinette lovers will like what I have coming. :)
