I spent yesterday finishing a quilt and working off and on.  I keep my computer and everything on my back porch and Pita called upstairs (from his chair 2 feet from the back door.)  "It's starting to rain, do you need to get anything inside?"

Our porch is fairly deep so usually I don't bring anything in even if it's raining so I thought it was an odd questions.

I step outside and it is raining sideways buckets.  I was like, Ummm yeah, Guess I'll bring the computer, monitor and other electronics in, but don't stress yourself.  I got it.  Of course then he gets up and helps while professing he just wasn't sure if I wanted all my electronics to be sitting outside in the deluge.  Gah

I finished quilting the quilt that was on the frame and started binding.  Today I can't walk because my feet hurt so badly.  I think I"m going to have to give up and have surgery, but I really really really don't wanna.

In other news, I was paying bills and realized I no longer have the correct address for the VOS to send the down payment for the retreat.  I was all ready to impress people by being on time and stuff with all the parts of the application.  Ah well.  Maybe next year.

One very important thing I learned this year:

Miniature quilts are not for people of a certain mature age. If you like big numbers on a landline telephone you won't like miniature quilt making.

Yesterday I visited with Sandy for a little while.  We are taking a class on Sept. 26 to learn how to make the "Sew Together Bag" -- and we needed to go over the supply list and *some* of the directions, because we have to do some "homework" before the class.  I invited myself over to her house, and she was kind enough to give me a piece of fusible batting and let me use her sewing machine to do some basic quilting on one large piece of fabric that is needed for the bag.  

Today I have just been puttering around, and occasionally checking in on a streaming video of dairy cow calves being born at the New York State Fair.  They are so cute!  

Because I had to work on Saturday, I also get tomorrow off.  But I will have typing to do on my 2nd job, which will be a good opportunity to earn some more money for my cruise in October.

oh my...so sorry...feeties are important though...what kind of surgery would you have to get?

do you have gel pads under your quilting machine? can you get one of those saddle seats that rolls to help take the pressure off your feet? or maybe convert to a sit down table??

in my younger days I did this one...but I did it by hand (yes you can paper piece by hand...) ...Don't think I would tackle it now though!! This was made using the 'Sponge Bob on Crack' Ugly Fabric...
