Boss was in real early today for a meeting. Makes for a long day when he's there all day. And I don't get near as much done. I wish he'd just go ahead and retire instead of bouncing in and out. He's what I call a moving target!
It was so hot today in the building. We've got huge furnaces out in the plant that generate a lot of heat, but the offices are normally cool. If it's that hot in there tomorrow, I'm going to get the maintenance man to check out the two A/C units. It was nice to have a lot of errands to run midday. At least I could crank up the A/C in the car for an hour!
My friend, Trudi, has a new blog. If you all get a minute, please pay her a visit. I don't know how she gets as much done as she does with working outside the home and living on a farm. http://oklacookiemaker.blogspot.com/ But she manages to do all of that and quilt, too! A neat lady!
This was a little quickie quilt I put together for a friend down in South Louisiana who just had an adorable little boy. Laney and I met on the old Alex Anderson message board. It turns out she lives in the same town as my brother, and when I was down visiting him about three summers ago, she came over with her three kids and we all spent a lovely afternoon together, barbecued, and really became friends. She was just pregnant with little Adam then. When my computer crashed, I lost an adorable picture of Adam at about a year old curled up asleep with his quilt. It looked like it was well worn and well loved -- exactly what I want all my quilts to look like!! Laurie quilted this one.
Tonight I've got to start hauling stuff back up to the stash room. I manage to tote so much fabric downstairs to my sewing area. Someday I hope to get it all on one floor! That would be wonderful! In the meantime, I just pile what needs to go back upstairs on the staircase. I'd better get busy getting that stuff back up there before I trip on it and break my silly neck!
Haircut Saturday. I've been thinking all day that I might make drastic cuts this time. Pondering that. I'm ready for a change!
