My Aunt Dot is visiting her daughter, Sebra, in Dacula, GA for the holiday, and yesterday Al and I drove out to visit. As we walked up to the front door, Al said, "I don't think this is the right house." I was thinking the same thing, because I remembered steps and this house did not have any. I said, "Why's that?" and he pointed to the "McCain/Palin" bumper sticker on one of the cars in the driveway! What was really funny is that he had his "Obama 08" cap on!
I've gotten a lot of quilting done over the last four days. I have pieced all but the outer ring on the Amazon Star. I'm pretty certain I can finish piecing this over Christmas vacation, which would be a good thing to have at least one project finished this year! Here is what one of the completed star points looks like:
Much prettier in person, and I'm getting excited about this piece! I would love to enter it in the East Cobb show in September, but I can't remember their max size. This might be too big.
I'm very pleased with the way the points are sharp as a tack and all line up and so far, it's lying pretty flat. Once I start putting all those Y-seams together, it will be a different story, but so far, so good!
Thanksgiving is an emotional holiday. People travel thousands of miles to be with people they only see once a year. And then discover once a year is way too often. ~Johnny Carson
I'm 60-something, happily married, love to laugh, quilt, travel, and meet people. I've never met a stranger, and a friend calls me "Chatty Cathy" - I don't know why. I moved to Georgia in 2007 and I absolutely love it...except for the bugs!
